Debunking a rumor. That Sony camera code is not for a new FE camera.

large_A9

I have to write this post to debunk a rumor running on the web. Sony registered a new camera in Indonesia. The name is hidden behind the code “WW808162“. Unlike the rumors this isn’t a new FE camera code but the code used for the Kw1 smartphone selfie camera. Just search on the official the Kw1 manual for the code and you will see it’s used for the cam.

This is the selfie cam in case you forgot about it :)

(SR4) Sony sales info: Most sold Sony camera is the A6000 (A7 series doing much better than expected).

sonysales

A long time source spilled out some general info on the Sony camera sales:

1) A77II A-mount camera sales slightly exceeded the projections of the first three sales months.

2) A7-A7r-A7s sales are way higher than Sony’s best projection.

3) The most sold FE camera is the Sony A7s

4) The most sold E-mount camera (FF and APS-C) is the A6000.

I am not surprised to hear that at all. And I hope Sony will take note that we need more APS-C E-mount lenses too to support the many A6000/5100 and future A7000 camera owners.
