Image of a Mamiya 7 (here on eBay) from Roma Nikolaev.
Also Photorumors got word (reliable?) on a Sony medium format camera coming the coming 12 months. Nothing new as this rumor is floating on the web since months now (see article here). My sources once told me the Sony medium Format Camera is a sort of digital Mamiya 7 (here on eBay). But the camera should look better and be smaller. So here are the specs/details rumored so far:
– Fixed lens RX camera
– Zeiss prime (35mm FF equivalent)
– 50 megapixel sensors (same used by new Hasselblad/PhaseOne/Pentax medium formats)
– Built-in EVF
– Smaller and cheaper(!) than any other medium format cameras out there. It’s cheaper than the new Pentax 645
All we know from recent interviews is that Sony said such a camera “is possible” to make for Sony and they also stressed to say that they have unique innovative products to come in 2015. Let’s hope this one is one of them!
