Our 2020 rumors were right all along: Sony officially registered the “surprise” (RX?) camera that we told you would be announced soon!

Today Sony officially registered a new camera model with 5.1GHz Wifi (via Nokishita). This means it’s a high end model !!!

Our rumors are therefore confirmed!
We told you on May 15 that Sony plans to launch the A7sII successor and a “surprise” model in June (max early July). And indeed Sony has now registered a total of two camera featuring the 5.1Ghz module:

WW271448 (Sony Corporation of Japan and for)
WW850128 (Sony Digital Products (Wuxi) Co., Ltd, China)

UPDATE: The new High End camera might be an RX model because it has been registered by Sony China?

I got some early whispers about this “surprise” model but I need to dig more into it before I can share something with you. Anyway. it’s going to be an exciting time on SAR and if you don’t follow us on Twitter and Facebook you will be banned from SAR :)

So far in 2020 we have a very good track on our rumors:
May 18: We leaked the first ZV1 images
May 6: We reported first about the new ZV1 launch
April 17: We leaked the Samyang 75mm specs
April 3: We leaked the Tamron 70-180mm price and market release date.
February 17: We leaked the Sony 20mm FE specs
February 13: We leaked the first Sony 20mm FE info
February 7: We leaked the Prime lens rumor

Note: The timeline of Camera rumors posted before the Covid-19 outbreak did get shifted. So if there was a rumored FF E-mount camera launch at Cp+ or Photokina this would of course be postponed by up to 6 months.

 

First leaked image of the ZV1 back

The image on top shows you the back of the new ZV1 camera. Below you can find the press text and more images:

Press text:

The Sony ZV-1 is a 20.1MP digital camera specifically designed for vloggers and content creators. It features a 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor and super-fast AF for high quality images and 4K video. The 24-70mm zoom lens is perfect for both portraits and wide-angle shooting. The Image stabilisation helps to keep your photos and videos blur free. It has an ergonomic, comfortable grip plus a 3-inch vari-angle LCD screen with recording lamp, which makes selfie-shooting very easy.

The ZV-1 is designed around the needs of vloggers and content creators, and focusses on intuitive controls for vlog & video creation. The vari-angle screen ensures selfie-shooting is easy enabling you to check your framing while shooting. The grip provides a comfortable and secure way of holding the camera.

A directional 3-capsule Microphone utilises technology from Sony’s advanced video camera systems to deliver high quality sound capturing performance and noise reduction in full-stereo. In addition, a wind screen that greatly reduces wind noise in outdoor conditions is supplied. A 3.5mm input jack is also onboard in case additional mics need to be added.

Get leading-edge movie AF for vlogging. Developed for the interchangeable-lens camera Alpha series, Real-time Eye AF locks on and tracks subjects with high accuracy and speed. It uses AI-based subject recognition technology to detect eye information in real-time, allowing people’s eyes to be recognised and tracked, even when shooting 4K movies.

Soft Skin Effect enables you to reduce skin wrinkles and marks while ensuring you preserve skin-tones and the sharpness of eyes and mouths. Skin tones are optimised for both movies and stills to deliver ideal subject emphasis when using your vlogging camera for YouTube, Instagram, and other platforms. Finally, an original face priority AE algorithm – detects the face and adjusts the exposure to ensure it is depicted at optimal brightness, even during selfie-shooting scenes with large light-dark changes.

By simply pressing the Bokeh Switch (C1), even without a deep knowledge of cameras and video, you can obtain the blurred background effect. Another simple operation – Product Showcase Setting – enables the focus to shift rapidly from your face to a product or object being held up to the lens without having to hide your face. Easy to use this can be abled by the press of a single button (C2). Perfect for product review videos.

RUMOR: Sony 12-24mm GM and Sony A7sII successor are coming in June! And definitely “one big surprise” coming too…

The very same three sources who shared ot us the Zv1 specs and images (leaked yesterday here) also told us that in June Sony will announce this:

  • 12-24mm f/2.8 GM lens
  • Sony A7II successor. Note: A new Full Frame E-mount camera that was already registered in Asia (article here).

At the moment I have received no A7sII successor specs. But let’s hope it has the fully articulating screen on the side like the ZV1 has.

But wait…there is more!

There is also a rumor about a “third surprise” product. But it’s not clear yet if this product will be announced together with the A7sII or on a second event in June/July. What I can tell you yet about this “surprise” product is that it’s not an A7IV.

I am working to be able to give you soon the info about this “surprise” product!
