(SR4) A77II comes with new 24 megapixel sensor!

Image on top shows the silhoutte of the current Sony A77.

Well, let’s start with some serious rumor about the next Sony announcement! Multiple sources confirmed an announcement is scheduled for very early May. We are still not how many products Sony will announce. For sure there will be a new A77II A-mount camera. But I still hope there will be some major surprises too (FE lenses, RX cameras and so on…).

A77II:
14 months after the A58 announcement we will finally get a new A-mount camera! We already know the name of the A77 successor is “A77II“. And now one of our trusted sources said he “heard” the A77II will use a new 24 Megapixel sensor. The source didn’t confirm yet if it’s the same 24 MP sensor with the super fast Hybrid AF used by the newly announced A6000 sensor. The source also said the camera has NFC and WiFi and while he didn’t share any AF specs he said it should be extremely fast.

As usual I ask for help from sources to gather more info about the next Sony announcement. You can contact me anonymously by using the contact form you see on the very top-right of your browser. You can also contact me directly at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com.

Thank You all for the help!

A bad and a good news on the previous fools day rumor :)

As I guess most of you find out by now the previous rumor about the A91 and A9 cameras was a fool days joke :) But I have a bad and good news for you:

Bad: The rumor is obviously false. There will be no A91 and A9 on May 1.

Good: Foveon sensor, 50+ megapixel sensor, Super fast AF. All the info I shared is based on rumors I really got. So there is a big hope Sony will make that fool camera specs…for real!

And now I am at work to get and post some “real” rumors :)

I have been told by a highly trusted sources that Sony will announce the new Sony A77 successor (and some more stuff) at the World Photography Award in London which starts on May 1!

And as you know Sony promised to launch new FE lenses soon too (and probably another camera surprise?). This is going ot be very exciting here on SAR…

(SR3) More tidbits on the Medium Format Sony: “Imagine a sort of digital Mamiya 7”.

Image of a Mamiya 7 from Roma Nikolaev.

One of the anonymous sources that gave me tidbits about the Sony medium Format Camera is that you have to imagine it as a sort of digital Mamiya 7 (here on eBay). But the camera should look better and be smaller :). This means it is definitely a mirrorless camera and probably has a built-in EVF. I still have no specs (a aprt of the 50MP sensor) or any confirmation from my trusted sources. That’s why I rank the rumor as SR3 only (50% chance it’s true).
