a7_meikon

SAR reader Seppo (Thanks) found a cheap alterative of the certainly higher quality but also ten times more expensive Nauticam A7 camera underwater hosuing ($2,850 here at Samys). The Meikon Waterproof housing for the A7/r/s cameras is for sale for less than $180 on eBay (Click here). It works up to 130ft and with the 28-70mm FE lens.

10 times less epxnaive…maybe some SAR reader can finally buy a waterproof housing without having to pay for it than the camera he carries :)

(SR4) Sony High (46?)Megapixel camera is coming for real in first quarter 2015!

FacebookShare

The great Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8.

A trusted source shared a couple of interesting info. He knows for sure that the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 lens announced at Photokina has been designed for new High megapixel cameras. He says the lens has been tested to resolve enough detail on a Sony 46 Megapixel Full Frame camera. And that camera will be announced the first quarter of 2015! It’s yet not clear if this is an A or E (or both) mount camera.

The source who told me this shared correct info in the past therefore I rank the rumor with an SR4 level (80% chance this is correct). There is a hot rumor time coming by end of this year and very early 2015. To not miss any of the upcoming rumors subscribe here:
