(SR4) UPDATED: Sony A58 Dynamic Range improvement confirmed.

An anonymous Sony A58 tester just sent me an info that the new Sony sensor powering the upcoming A58 has indeed an improved dynamic range. He said he never was able to see so many details in the shadows. This all sounds very promising!

By the way, there is some uncertainty about the exact release date. But it should be announced next week and if not…then the week after.

Sony A58 specs reminder:

- The A58 will have a 20 megapixel sensor capable of shooting at 8fps (frames per second).
- The body has the same size as the current A57.
- It will have a brand new focusing system that he said is “very cool” (you may tell us more about it?)
- you will be able to control the camera from a computer (like all the Canons) but it wont have Wi-Fi.
- Price is $599
