RUMOR: Sony will announce the new A7rV on October 26th!

A reliable source told me that Sony will announce the new “Sony A7rV” on October 26th around 3pm London time. I still have no reliable info about the specs but I shared some rumors in the video below (please subscribe my channel).

One more thing:

I have also been told that Sony is “likely” going to announce a new ZV camera in early October. But there is one important rumor correction: This ain’t going to be a new E-mount camera but rather a fixed lens entry level model similar to the current ZV-1.

More info here:

I am now working to get reliable specs. To not miss those rumors please subscribe my youtube channel, follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitterand also follow our community on Discord. Thanks!

 

What if (big if!) that Nikon roadmap prediction is true?

I really don’t know if that Nikon camera roadmap prediction is correct (via MirrorlessRumors). But let’s assume for a moment this is the real deal and Nikon will announce:

  • November 2022: Z7III with 45MP and 8K
  • November 2022: Z6III with 24MP and 6K
  • January 2023: Z5II with 24MP and 4K
  • March 2023: Z90 with 24MP
  • June 2023: ZF with 24MP
  • August 2023: Z8 with 61MP and 8K
  • October 2023: Z50II with 21MP

What do you think about that? My short thoughts:

  • Z7III with 8k sounds great, and certainly would pressure Sony in offering an affordable 8K Alpha camera.
  • Knowing that Sony is announcing the A7rV now I would find it strange that Nikon will answer with the Z8 in August 2023 only.
