We have just been told that within 24 hours (read the Sony China message) Sony will announce a new RX10 successor camera. UPDATE: The RX100VII will be announced this week while the RX10V will be announced later)  Stay tuned on SAR to follow the announcement!

Reminder: There seems to be another announcement in August for a new E-mount camera…

Preorders:

(SR5) Confirmed by Sony China: New RX camera coming within 24 hours!

Sony China wrote this message on Weibo: “which RX camera do you expect?”. This confirms a new RX camera will be announced within 24 hours. When the 35F1.8 and A7R4 were announced they posted the same kind of teaser 24 hours before the official launch!

UPDATE: This time Sony China was well ahead of the announcement. It will take 72 hours instead of the usual 24hours and then we will get the new RX100VII.

Preorders:
Sony RX100VII in the USA at BHphoto, Adorama, BuyDig and Amazon.
Sony RX100VII in EU at ParkcamerasUK, WexUK.

(SR0) 99% chance this is a fake new Sony Evil S E-mount 8K camera :)

Important: I got this image from an anonymous source. So it could (and should) be completely bullshit. So stop to read here if you only care about more “realistic” rumors.

Still, even if this has a 99% chance to be a fake let’s discuss the features :)

The camera appears to a Sony A7sII successor in form of a new RX camera. The camera seems to have a fully articulating screen too. And here are the “leaked” specs:

But like I said, please threat this rumor with a grain of salt and with a 99% chance it’s wrong. If anyone knows who made this drop me a message!

Sony manager reassures: We are working to give you 4k60p and 10bit 4:2:2 on a Sony Alpha camera!

After the Sony A7rIV announcement there were some bloggers expressing concerns if Sony will ever release a new A7s camera. Well the answer is clearly yes! Sony managers confirmed in this interview that they are working to deliver a 4k60p and 10bit 4:2:2 Sony Alpha camera to their customers:

(SR4) New Sony RX camera to be announced next week

Sony is likely to announce a new RX camera next week (could be July 23 or July 24). We have no info about WHAT camera this is.

What we know is that Sony will have one more camera announcement in August too. No idea what this might be yet…but ti’s not the A7sIII and not the A9II.

(SR4) Sony has one new camera announcement next week and (SR3) one more camera announcement possibily in late August…

FACT: Sony has registered three new camera codes in Asia. This usually means the cameras will be announced within 1-2 months!

Yesterday Sony announced the new A7rIV. But this is not all what’s coming! The past hours we got confirmation that:

SR4 (70% reliable): Sony will announce one more camera next week (around 23-24 of July)
SR3 (50% reliable): There is a rumor about one more camera announcement in August (possibly late August)

Two big store managers told me that Sony said they plan to announce one product a month from now on til end 2019. Seems like a new strategy to keep attention on the Sony Alpha brand

What to expect:
On both of these launch events I do NOT expect a new A7SIII or A9II which. The A7sIII should be announced in autumn. The A9II should be on market within late 2019 or early 2020. What we should expect as next are new RX cameras, A6500 succcessor and maybe soemthing else I haven’t heard of…

Stay tuned on SAR!
