(SR4) 8k Mirrorless Full Frame coming for Rio 2016?


Bildschirmfoto 2014-10-31 um 08.48.43

A second source added some more info about the Sony 8K camera prototype rumor we posted last week (article here):

Interesting reading about that 8k camera you said was shown at the BBC, since I probably saw the same thing.
It was in a DSLR body (I assume a99, I don’t use Sony still cameras), but it had a grip (not integrated like a D4/1Dx) not built in, so either your source was mistaken or there’s at least 2 different prototypes out there).
Nothing to add from a technical standpoint, but really but it about Sony telling us “consider moving  to Sony today because in 18-24 months you’ll be wishing your team were already comfortable with it”, strongly suggesting we’d have 8k gear available for Rio 2016mi

Such a camera could be interesting for photographic use too. Instead of taking single pictures during a wildlife or model shooting you can just record 8K all the time and in post production choose the best 33 megapixel stills from a single 8K frame!

The official note from Sony Japan.

Sony Japan forgot to mention that also the A7s got an official firmware update (can be seen here on Sony US). At the time of writing als the few Sony Europe stores I have checked do not display the firmware update info for the A7s…
