(SR5) Follow SonyAlphaRumors! Sony product announcement on August 24!

Finally!

According to our sources Sony will announce the new translucent cameras, the A33 and the A55 on August 24! We also expect Sony to announce the new A560, the A590 and many new lenses. But we don’t knwo if those will be announced the same day or few weeks after (September 14th?).

Yeah, Sony made us angry because of some questionable choices (see the missing A700 replacement and the many redundant low-end DSLR’s). But what’s coming now is a new generation of cameras that really will kick Canon and Nikon in the a.. :)

The A33 and A55 will be the first DSLR camera designed to take very good quality video, with unique fast autfocus for stills AND video (Phase detection AF during video!), and a 2 stop better High-ISO performance (than previous Sony APS-C cameras).

Expect me to post more details on SonyAlphaRumors soon!

Sony press release on September 13th?

Sony plans a product announcement on September 13th. This is 2-3 weeks later than planed announcements form Nikon, Canon and Panasonic (They will unveil their new products in August). We form SonyAlphaRumors expect the announcement of 4 APS-C cameras and many new lenses. There is also a small chance that Sony will show the next A7xx and NEX-7 behind a glass (market release expected in 2011).

As you know we are not affiliated with Sony, and we are talking about “rumors. So there is still room for positive surprises ;)

UPDATE: One of our sources told us one month ago that there would be an announcement by late August. Or Sony delayed the press release or there will be two different product presentations. We will try to get more infos…

(SR3) No NEX-7 at Photokina (or maybe only behind the glass?)

Sony NEX-7 renderings from Tecnofotografia

According to two of our sources the Sony NEX-7 is not going to be announced at Photokina. One of our sources speculates that Sony may will show the NEX-7 prototype but the camera will be on market by early 2011 only. Sony wants to evaluate the NX-3 and NEX-5 impact on the market before to release the next NEX model. The NEX-7 is rumored to become a bigger and professional brother of the current NEX cameras.

In summary, if you want a NEX camera buy it now ;)
Check the NEX-3 price (Click here)
Check the NEX-5 price (Click here)

P.S.: I will soon start the E-mount lens poll !

Good morning!
It’s nice to wake up with good rumors in the mailbox ;)

According to an anonymous source Zeiss will release a new 28mm f/1.4 lens and the Sony G 200mm f/2.0 lens by 2011. One of our trusted sources confirmed the existence of the 200mm lens (and he will give me more news about the Zeiss soon). Sony could show that lenses at Photokina and give us more details about the official release period. Of course we all hope they will release it by early 2011 :)

New patent discloses a honeycomb image sensor

The new form of the photodiodes should improve the sensor performance. With that design less transistors are needed and as a consequence you can have more megapixels. We don’t know if it really works and if we will ever see such a sensor in a real camera!

* Patent Publication No. 2010-161200
* published 2010/07/22. Filled 2009/01/08
* Distance of the pixel is equal with all courses in the case of a honeycomb
* Less number of transistors used
* Low cost
* It can increase the number of the pixels
* Good sensitivity
* It assumes seven pixels one unit

(SR4) New generation of fullframe Sony sensor ready. FF camera to be announced by early 2011?


Sony is slowly introducing one revolution after another. The first have been the NEX cameras. Those cameras were expected to be announced in 2011 only but they are already here ;)

The next revolution are the pelllix cameras with high-quality video and autofocus. They will be announced in few weeks. The next ticket on the roadmap is the release of the A7xx. The original announcement period was early 2011 and the next FF camera by late 2011. But it is thanks your pressure on Sony that they decided to shorten the release cycle. As we told you the A7xx should be released by late 2010. I don’t know yet if they will announce the camera at Photokina and make it available by late 2010 or if they will announce it in November-December.

But what about the FF plans? Let’s start with the bad news. We don’t expect any new FF camera at Photokina (late September). It is true that Sony currently makes money with the NEX cameras and not with their Fullframe cameras and lenses. And if Nikon really starts to produce their own sensors than Sony fullframe sensor development and production will be even more costly. Espite all our sources us that the new generation of Sony fullframe sensors is ready. It will be a High-resolution sensor with fast 10fps and FullHD video and very good High-ISO image quality. The specs are not definitive. We were told that they have two sensor options: a new ExmorHD 24MPX and a new ExmorHD 30+MPX sensor. The design of the camera is based on the next pellix camera (which we will see in late August).

The good news. Sony will also shorten the relase cycle of the next FF camera. First expected by end 2011 the next FF camera should be announced by early 2011. Also in that case I don’t know if Sony will show us a prototype of that camera at Photokina (like it did for the A7xx at PMA in February). Sony knows they have to introduce a FF camera sooner than planned to compete against the Canon 5D markIICanon 5D markIICanon 5D markIICanon 5D markIICanon 5D markIICanon 5D markIICanon 5D markIICanon 5D markIICanon 5D markIICanon 5D markIICanon 5D markIICanon 5D markII.

In summary
– Next FF camera by early 2011
– ExmorHD highresolution sensor optimized for speed and high-quality video
– New very good High-ISO performance (up to 12.800 ISO)
– New design based on the next Pellix cameras (This also opens the question if it will feature an optical or an electronic viewfinder)

Editors note: It is very important that you continue to make pressure on Sony to release the A7xx and FF camera soon!
