And now it is official! Sony will announce the new DSLR on August 24! They also say that those are “never-before-seen Sony SLR’s”!!! And since November 2009 SonyAlphaRumors is telling you that those are the new translucent cameras. The semi transparent pellicle allows to have Phase detection during video recording. You can alos move up the transparent mirror (if you don’t want to have the little light loss when using the mirror). Very fast 10fps (frames per second).
UPDATE: We now know the original source of the teaser leak: http://www.electronista.com/articles/10/08/12/sony.to.have.new.alphas.in.two.weeks/
