More pictures of the new Sony FF SLT (or mirrorless)

The friends over at Engadget (Click here) posted some nice new pictures of the Sony prototype camera and lenses. As you see from the image on top Sony displayed what looks to be a Full Frame DSLR shaped camera. I am not sure this has SLT technology..it may be that this is a pure mirrorless camera with DSLR shape. The camera could be a 4K competitor of the Canon EOS-1D C (here at BHphoto). Engadget reports that “Unfortunately, Sony says that these devices won’t make it to market for quite some time, so photogs will have to make do with this eye candy for now.

So this is not a pure A-mount photographers camera but more of a FZ or PL mount 4K camcorder.

Surprise: Sony shows the new Full Frame with built-in vertical grip!

During the Sony presentation in LAS Vegas Sony underlined their commitment in the digital camera industry by showing shortly some prototype lenses and cameras. The screenshot I posted here on top looks to be a Full frame camera with built-in vertical grip. As SAR reader “Tonis” suggested the mount could be a sort of universal mount like the one used by the Sony F55. Just look at the mount the Zeiss 24-70mm A mount lens has an adapter which is likely an A to E-mount or FZ or PL mount adapter! That camera seems to be scheduled for a 2014 release. With new sensor tech (and likely 4k video recording).

Help from NAB show visitors: If some of you is in Las Vegas, can you send us please some pics of the prototype camera and lenses? Thanks a lot!

P.S.: I am happy Sony finally showed us that new Full Frame prototype. I may will help to shut down the voice of the few pessimistic people spamming on SAR comment system 😉
