Sony CES conference live stream on January 8 at 5pm PT

Share

Sony will live stream the CES conference on January 8 at 5pm PT. In recent years Sony has used CES to focus on its audio and office lines. Last time Sony did unveil a new camera at CES was in 2014 (Sony A5000). I don’t expect them to announce the A7III or A7sIII on that day. But still, I will embed the live stream here on SAR and let’s see if they might surprise us.

An anonymous source said this:

Sony will be hosting a press conference at CES, 8th of January. An importer source has informed the store I work at that we should “make room” for a couple of new products. One of them is most likely the Panasonic GH5s, but they spoke in the plural, which would hint that Sony has something coming, too. We’re guessing it’s related to the a7 series, because of the recent price drops.

I doubt there will be some E-mount stuff. there might be some actions cameras tough?

And this is just a dream for now: A67000 with 30mm f/1.2 APS-C GM lens:

For 2018 I wish Sony to give me that A6700 with 30mm f/1.2 GM lens :) #sony #sonyalpha

The Sony A7rIII is the product of the year at Dpreview!

Share

The Sony A7rIII won both the award for best camera and the award for the overall product of the year: Dpreview writes:

You guessed it – one of the last cameras released in 2017 ended up taking the top spot. The Sony a7R III is a truly impressive camera, which combines advanced stills and video features in a body designed to satisfy the needs of professionals and enthusiasts alike. While the a9 is faster, and features an autofocus system better optimized for shooting sports, the a7R III is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera for the rest of us, and a well-deserved winner of our award for the best product of 2017.

And the RX10m4 gained the award as best compact camera of the year. Dpreview writes:

Although it might look like a relatively minor update to last year’s RX10 III, the Sony Cyber-shot RX10 IV is a considerably more attractive camera thanks to the addition of phase-detection autofocus. It rarely hunts for focus even at 600mm. While it can’t manage DSLR-level subject tracking, it’s impressively capable for both stills and video, and this combined with the razor-sharp 24-600mm stabilized zoom lens makes for an unbeatable combination. As such, the Sony Cyber-shot RX10 IV earns our award for the best compact camera of 2017.

The 16-35mm GM is the zoom lens of the year. Dpreview writes:

For many years, Sony was criticized for offering a relatively small lineup of high-quality lenses, but products like the new 16-35mm F2.8 GM prove that the company has what it takes to make world-class optics. Sharp even wide open, fast to focus and capable of producing some of the nicest sunstars we’ve ever seen, this lens will be useful for everything from landscapes to indoor sports to weddings. The Sony FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM earns our award for best zoom lens of 2017.

The Sony 85mm f/1.8 was the second best lens of the year. Dpreview writes:

Sony’s FE 85mm F1.8 takes the runner-up spot for its combination of excellent image quality, speedy autofocus, attainable price and compact size. For anyone looking to get into portraiture using Sony’s full-frame lens ecosystem, we wholeheartedly recommend the FE 85mm F1.8.
