(SR4) ILC-3000 to be announced on August 27?


According to one source Sony will unveil a “new special entry camera” on August 27. It’s my guess that he is talking about the new DSLR shaped E-mount camera named “ILC-3000”. Am I right?

This camera will compete against the Canon REBEL series and this is also the first E-mount camera that will get rid of the “NEX” brand name.

I know it’s hard to get used to the new definition, the “ILC-3000“! It quite remembers me the “HAL 9000” computer from Stanley Kubrick’s movie “2001: A Space Odyssey“. I do hope the ILC-3000 E-mount camera will not be as unkind to human being as the crazy gone HAL 9000 🙂
