I already told you that there will be a new High End E-mount and an A77 successor soon. The other two cameras are likely to be entry level E-mount cameras.

(SR3) First details about the new generation A-mount cameras…

Share

A new source wrote this:

I was left some specifications for that ff and aps-c size A-mound cameras. both has WiFi and NFC tech. Improved JPEG engine. aps-c A-mount has lock on selector dial (same as a99 dial lock). LCD for aps-c camera improved 912k resolution to 1.2k resolution screen. Translucent mirror reflection down 30% to 20%. improved phase detection AF sensor. both has same 19 point AF 11 cross type(same as a77 and a99). the name for both cameras still classified.”

I am now working to get all the camera specs. As I told you before there is plenty of new cameras coming soon (late January-early February). This includes a new High End APS-C E-mount camera and at least two A-mount cameras. But I am pretty sure there could be more cameras too (for example RX and entry level E-mount). Stay tuned on SAR. Hot times ahead of us!
