(SR4) Also a 54MP FF variation of the 4um architecture used in A6500 is said to be announced in the near future

Also a 54MP FF variation of the 4um architecture used in A6500 is said to be announced in the near future. This is the info I got from a source:

Got word on a new Sony FF sensor, Exmor R, 54MP, 4um photosite, essentially a full frame version of A6500 sensor. Also, Sony Semicon supplied Fujifilm the sensor for X-T3, the latest gen 3.76um photosite architecture seen on IMX411/IMX461 medium format sensors, BSI+copper interconnect+16bit ADC.

Competiton rumors: Panasonic S1R prices above the Sony A7rIII. New Canon High-rez camera and Nikon f/0,65 lens

We got some interesting rumors from the direct Sony competition:

Panasonic:
Sankei believes Panasonic S1R price is above $4,000+ (MirrorlessRumors). This is considerably more expensive than the A7rIII. Yes, the Panasonic will have 4k60p and probably better weathersealing. But autofocus is unlikely to be as good as the Sony and I doubt at this price many will buy this camera.

Canon:
Canon EOS-R will announce a new High Resolution camera in 2019. Probably with 60+ Megapixels (MirrorlessRumors).

Nikon:
Nikon marketing is working hard to pass the message that their larger mount is better. They now say that “In theory” they could make f/0,65 Z-mount autofocus lenses! (MirrorlessRumors). But of course this is just marketing BS because in reality there will be never such a fast lens. Even their current f/0,95 lens can only be made without autofocus and is extremely big:

I am now curious to see if Sony will “update” their cameras with some of the features you see on the new FF competition: An example could be the addition of th LCD top screen and the larger grip.

The big news/rumors roundup: New Sony E-mount camera registered and first 8K FF sensors specs

In the midst of the big Black Friday event we got some quite major news and some of you might have missed them. So here is the recap:

1) Sony A7000:

Sony officially registered a new E-mount mirrorless camera in Asia. Usually it will take up to 2 months until this camera will be officially announce. I believe this is the new A7000 or A6xxx. A New High End camera:

– it’s not an A6500 successor
– it has a new design with EVF in the center
– it’s a new High End APS-C camera
– mini-A9
– probably 20 fps and 5.6 milion dot EVF

2) Two new Sony Full Frame sensors:

Sony will soon announce two new FF sensors that will be available for third-party companies too. There is a new 8K capable sensor too:

Sensor 1:
60MP
16 channels (which is crazy, normally it should be 8),
4.6FPS@16bit
12FPS@14bit
8k30P@12bit
8K60p@10bit
4k60p@12bit
FHD300P@10bit
Sensor 2:
36MP
10FPS@16bit
60FPS@10bit
on-chip PDAF
3) Sony A7sIII
And old-time and reliable source told us this about the new A7sIII:

The development of α7sⅢ has been postponed because of heat issue (SAR note: That’s why it’s not coming in 2018).
α7sⅢ will have stacked CMOS sensor but the sensor is different to α9’s.
α7sⅢ will be sold in 2019’s early.

4) Sony 35mm f/1.8 G

Two sources told us this lens is on Sony’s roadmap. No details about the announcement date but I guess it’s coming in 2019

(SR5) Updated: These are the next two new Sony Full Frame 16bit sensors (also for third party manufacturers)

This is from a source that was 100% correct with the rumors he shared in the past. According to him Sony will soon announce these two new Full Frame sensors:
Sensor 1:
60MP
16 channels (which is crazy, normally it should be 8),
4.6FPS@16bit
12FPS@14bit
8k30P@12bit
8K60p@10bit
4k60p@12bit
FHD300P@10bit
Sensor 2:
36MP
10FPS@16bit
60FPS@10bit
on-chip PDAF

The source also told me the sensors will have this:

1: Weighted pixel binning: improve the image quality when shooting videos with pixel binning. Already featured in a lot of Sony sensors.
2: A new dual-gain ADC mode: improve the dynamic range by almost 2 stops. The sensor loses 50% speed when using it. Details not known yet. Already in XT3’s sensor.
3: Digital Overlap HDR (DOL-HDR): It’s like bracketing, but you can shoot 2 frames almost at the same time! (The minimum time interval is only 1/6000 seconds). All the new sensors with 3.76um pixel size have this function.
As I said I am 99% sure the rumors is valid and these sensors will be on market soon. UPDATE: The source now added that these two sensors will be available for Sony own products and for third party companies.
My guess is that the A7sIII or other High End Sony E-mount cameras will not use those sensors. But as pointed out by our rader Primitivelamps:
It is irrelevant if these specific sensors are used or not in the next Sony cameras. The point is the sensors/tech are available, so it is not a stretch to think the next Sony cameras are using something similar.
Yes, I expect Sony’s next generation cameras to use a similar sensor. What I also wonder is if Sony will use Global Shutter sensors…

(SR5) Sony registered a new mirrorless camera in Asia! Sony A7000 is coming!

At last folks!  Today Sony registered a new camera code in Asia. According to Nokishita the code “WW715296” is for a mirrorless system camera! We know from our sources the High End APS-C cameras is the next camera that will be announced by Sony. So I bet this is the new A7000 (or A6xxx).

When will the camera be announced? Only one source told me that the camera might be announced before Christmas. Last time the Sony A7III has been registered in Asia only ONE DAY before the official announcement!

So hopefully that one source is right. But I repeat so far we have no 100% solid evidence the camera will be announced within weeks. All we know from the A7000 is that:

– it’s not an A6500 successor
– it has a new design with EVF in the center
– it’s a new High End APS-C camera
– mini-A9
– probably 20 fps and 5.6 milion dot EVF

With the new camera launch there will be new lenses too! At least one of them is for APS-C only!

(SR4) Sony A7sIII has new stacked sensor and will be on market by early 2019

Small update on the Sony A7sIII camera. A long time Asian source sent me this:

The development of α7sⅢ has been postponed because of heat issue (SAR note: That’s why it’s not coming in 2018).
α7sⅢ will have stacked CMOS sensor but the sensor is different to α9’s.
α7sⅢ will be sold in 2019’s early.

The A7sIII will surely have 4k60p and 5.6 milion dot EVF.
Before the As7III gets launched we should get the new High End APS-C camera along with new lenses.

A fake A6700 spec list is going around the web

I got this image last week but I didn’t post it because I know with 100% certainty this is fake. But some sites posted exactly theses specs and readers asked my opinion on this. So here is my opinion: It is fake as you can see from the image showing the FF sensor inside the body. Moreover I know the source of this image and I know it has a long history of sharing such fake spec lists.

The only 80% reliable info I got so far is that the new APS-C High End camera will be Sony’s next announcement (and before the A7sIII). And it will have the EVF in the center and NOT be the A6500 successor but a new kind of model. It’s unclear when it will be announced although one single and usually reliable source told me he heard Sony has one more announcement before Christmas. But I got no other confirmation to back this up and it might be that this one source may be mislead by Sony…
