(SR5) There is no 4K photocamera coming from Sony at NAB. A7rII coming after NAB.


If you were waiting for a new A7sII or any other 4K pro photocamera (not camcorder!) than skip the event. There will be no such camera at NABshow. The other rumored cameras like the A7rII and compact cameras will be announced after the NAB show.

For filmmakers: Sony will announce the HDC4300 at NAb (all info here at SAR).

(SR5) Sony to announce new “Products” on April 23. (…for A-mount?)



As you can see from the image on top Sony has a press briefing scheduled for April 23 at the World Photography Awards. Trusted Sources confirmed Sony will have a product announcement on that day. But I am not sure yet we will get the A7rII on that event because I heard of another (E-mount related) announcement in May. It’s yet a complete mystery what kind of camera they will announce on April 23. I don’t wanna give false hopes to A-mount followers but last year they announced the Sony A77II on the Photography Award event. So maybe… :)

To sum up. We have three rumored announcement dates:
1) April 12: NAB show Sony press conference. No new E or A-mount photocamera coming (just camcorder stuff).
2) April 23: Worldphoto event: ???
3) May announcement: New E-mount cameras/lenses.

If you think that it makes no sense having three different product announcements within 30 days…note that last year Sony made three separate announcements too: Sony A7s on April 6. Sony A77II on May 1. RX100 on May 16.

Vladislav:I shoot with sony (I’m a wildlife photographer) and I hate it with a new body comes out and all reviews are for portretry and general specs reviews, but nobody talks about how capable the camera for wildlife is. My channel just uploaded one review, that does exactly that, for the other wildlifers shooting with sony out there and I think there might be plenty of your readers interested in what I have to say.

Javier:I am one of those lucky enough to have the new Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f / 4G OSS, this video is made with the Sony A7s and Shogun atoms , there are also recorded with drone planes. I leave a picture of recording equipment. Is made in the Sierra Nevada National Park:
