New Sony X teaser for a product display event on May 15!

Share

The broken mirror teaser

The Sony X Australia group posted that curious teaser of a broken mirror. It’s for a special Sony event scheduled on May 15 (date info shared by a source). There is yet no other info a part of the text saying “stay tuned”. The broken mirror image could refer to a new mirrorless camera launch (rumored to be the A7rII and/or the A6100). But so far there is no 100% guarantee yet this is for the A7rII/A6100 launch. Note: Sony X is an official Sony affiliated group.

But this would fit with previous (SR3) rumors I got about a mid-May announcement. The new A7x and A6xxx camera May-June launch timeframe also got leaked on that Wikileaks document.

So far the A7rII will get the 5 axis IBIS and A7II body form. Not 100% clear if the A7rII will get the same 36MP sensor as the first model or an updated new 59MP sensor (See Zeiss leak). The A6100 will retain the current 24MP sensor and get XAVC-S recording.

Reminder:
Sony FE 28mm for the first time in Stock today at Amazon, Adorama, BHphotoFocusCamera, Sony US.

(SR3) New rumors about the A7rII having 50+MP sensor…

Share

Bildschirmfoto 2015-04-29 um 19.41.41
The reflection in the eye of the Zeiss 56MP image may show the photographer holding the new A7rII :)

The following rumor comes from a new source. As with any new source please take the info with a grain of salt and not read too much into it yet:

Sorry to be anonymous, but i think the rumors of the 50mp A7R II are true. we exhibit at NAB, and are good friends with a lot of the vendors including Zeiss, Sony, etc. We were told by one of our sources “three months for the A7R II 50MP sensor” and that was all they mentioned. Could be more stuff, but the guy who told me also works for a related manufacturer.

Thanks again for sharing the info Anonymous source!

So far the A7rII is rumored to be announced between mid May and early June. I have no 100% confirmed info yet but I believe (my speculation and not a rumor!) it will be the third or fourth week of May…
