RX1s and RX1k Fake image warning :)


It’s Photokina time and therefore false leaks are spreading on the web! A couple of readers sent me the link to the Xitek forum where someone posted images of the RX1s and RX1k. Before you get fooled about them know that these are obviously FAKE home-made images :)

It doesn’t mean the RX1s and RX1k may not become true soon!

(SR5) QX30 and new Z3 to be announced on September 3.


Sony sent out an invitation for a press event related to the IFA show in Berlin. On September 3 at 16:15 Sony will unveil their new products which will certainly include the new Z3 smart phone (with curved sensor?) and the QX30 (with 30x zoom). This is normally NOT the place for regular A or E-mount announcements which are likely to be made before that date in late August.

P.S.: There may be also the chance that Sony splits the product unveiling in 2-3 separate announcements…

Reminder: $80 off on the QX10 and QX100 at Amazon US (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).
