(UPDATED) Surprise: Sony A7s has full electronic shutter!

It’s a real surprise Sony didn’t make a big advertising on one of the Sony A7s biggest new features. According to Amazon US (Click here and read the “Additional Features” section) the A7s has full electronic shutter! It means you can shoot in full silence and with no vibration usually caused by the mechanical shutter! Quite a huge news nobody wrote about it! I hope this isn’t a mistake. This is Amazon’s description:

Silent shutter mode is ideal when discretionary shooting is required; like capturing a recital or wildlife. Activating the silent shutter eliminates the use of the mechanical shutter and therefore shutter noise by utilizing an electronic shutter in its place.

Also the well-known German Fotomagazin claims the Sony A7s is capable of shooting in full electronic shutter mode! The magazine also writes “Sony could not answer our question if the function (pure electronic shutter) could be updated in other Sony-A7-cameras.” (I don’t know if it’s technically possible).

Also Digitalversus writes:

“The other reason we’re dying to get our hands on the Alpha 7s is that it has an electronic shutter mode, which means it can snap photos in complete silence—a more-than-welcome surprise that puts it in competition with the Panasonic GX7.”

There is not detailed info yet about how exactly the silent electronic mode works on the A7s. Hope Sony will disclose more details about it soon!

(SR5) Hot: First RX100M3 images leaked!

UPDATE: Sony announce the stuff today (May 16):
Sony A7s preorder in USA at Amazon US (Click here), BHphoto (Click here), SonyStore (Click here).
RX100M3 preorders in USA at Amazon (Click here), BHphoto (Click here), SonyStore (Click here).
RX100M3 preorders in Eu at Sony DE, UK, ES, FR, IT, NL, BE, AT, CH, SE, NO, FI, PT.
RX100M3 in Asia at Amazon Japan.
Sony A7s EU pages (no preorder yet): Sony DE, UK, ES, FR, IT, NL, SE, FI, PL.

————————

These are the first images of the amazing new RX100M3 that will be announced on May 16 at 5am London time. I kindly invite you all to follow the announcement live here on SonyAlphaRumors!

As you can see the RX100M3 has a high-resolution built-in pop-up viewfinder. The camera costs 849 Euro or $899 Canadian Dollars.  The amazing new features compared to its predecessors are:

1) Zeiss 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens which is wider and brighter than the previous Zeiss 28-100mm f/1.8-4.9 lens
2) 0.39″ SVGA electronic viewfinder pop-up OLED viewfinder with 1,440,000 dots.
3) Built-in ND filter
4) XAVC-S video recording just like the Sony A7s

Some people complained that the compact is very expensive but they do forget that an external viewfinder usually costs $200-300 (here at Amazon) and ont he RX100M3 it’s included and nicely hidden when you don’t need it. That way the camera remains truly compact!

The new camera is 2,5mm thicker than the RX100M2 (and 5mm thicker than the first generation RX100). Full specs can be read here: https://www.sonyalpharumors.com/sr5-rx100miii-priced-at-899-canadiad-us-dollars-full-specs-leaked/.

(SR5) RX100M3 and A7s (price) announcement on May 16 and not on May 15.

UPDATE: Sony announce the stuff today (May 16):
Sony A7s preorder in USA at Amazon US (Click here), BHphoto (Click here), SonyStore (Click here).
RX100M3 preorders in USA at Amazon (Click here), BHphoto (Click here), SonyStore (Click here).
RX100M3 preorders in Eu at Sony DE, UK, ES, FR, IT, NL, BE, AT, CH, SE, NO, FI, PT.
RX100M3 in Asia at Amazon Japan.
Sony A7s EU pages (no preorder yet): Sony DE, UK, ES, FR, IT, NL, SE, FI, PL.

————————

Like it happened with the A77II announcement there seems to be slighty changes on the exact announcement hour and date. I just have learned that unlike the previous rumor I got the RX100M3 and A7s (pricing) announcement will take place on May 16 and not tomorrow May 15.

So please spread the word. that there is a 24 hours delay. Will let you know as soon as I know the exact announcement hour although usually this kind of announcements happen at around 5-6am London time.

Note: After the May 16 announcement I will start to work more “deeply” on the Photokina rumors which means new A-mount FF cameras, new RX2, new Medium format camera rumors and the next generation E-mount cameras.

A7s Preorder or pure notification store links:
USA: Sony USAmazon and BHphoto.
Europe:  Sony DE, UK, ES, FR, IT, NL, SE, FI, PL.
Asia: Digitalrev

Reminder: You will need the Atomos Shogun at BHphoto (Click here) to grab 8bit 4:2:2 4K video.

RX100M3 specs reminder:
20MP sensor (same as RX100M2 model)
ISO 125-25600
24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens
Built in View finder (SVGA OLED Tru-Finder 1440k dots)
Tiltable screen (180 degrees up)
Record in XAVC S format (Same format of the Sony A7s but with no 4K output option).
Almost same size and weight as the current RX100/M2 models.
I have been told all other specs are the same of the current RX100II model.
Price is said to be around 800-850 Euro in Europe. Should be around $800-850 in USA (US price is my guess)

Tomorrow (May 15) is the big Sony announcement day and you have to follow it live on May 16 (5-6 am London time) on SonyAlphaRumors.

A7s: And right now the official Sony Luxemburg store has listed the final A7s price which is set at 2295 Euro! Shipment will be late July! The same store sets the price of the A7r at 1899 Euro. That makes the A7s 20% more expensive. We can speculate the price in US to be 20% higher than the A7r too ($2295 here at Amazon). It would mean the A7s could price could be around $2750. UPDATE: The site now removed the pricing info!

RX100M3: Sony Luxemburg also leaked the RX100MIII price which is 849 Euro (which confirms our rumors were right!). Shipment July 8!

Stay tuned on SAR!!!

RX100M3 specs reminder:
20MP sensor (same as RX100M2 model)
ISO 125-25600
24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens
Built in View finder (SVGA OLED Tru-Finder 1440k dots)
Tiltable screen (180 degrees up)
Record in XAVC S format (Same format of the Sony A7s but with no 4K output option).
Almost same size and weight as the current RX100/M2 models.
I have been told all other specs are the same of the current RX100II model.
Price is said to be around 800-850 Euro in Europe. Should be around $800-850 in USA (US price is my guess)

————————

I have been told the A7s pricing will be announced soon and also that Sony will say the A7s will ship in June. But like I told you before expect real shipment in early July as best. I am yet not sure but the pricing could be announced on Thursday already because by then Sony will have an official press release for the RX100M3 launch.

I really do hope Sony doesn’t go crazy high with the price. The current only competitor is the Panasonic GH4 (priced at $1699 at Amazon). While the A7s has a larger sensor and superb High ISO performance the Panasonic can do internal 4K, has much faster AF and 10 bit 4:2:2 output. In my opinion the price should be just below $2,000 for the A7s too!
