It’s official: Sony announcement tomorrow (August 28) at 10am New York time!

Alphauniverse officially announced a new product announcement for tomorrow (August 28) at 10am New York time!

That’s 7am in Los Angeles, 16:00 in Berlin and 23:00 in Tokyo.

Here is what to expect:

90% chance of getting the new A6700
90% chance of getting the new A6200  (unsure if that’s the final name)
90% chance the new A6700 has IBIS
60% chance the A6700 has same A6400 sensor
60% chance the A6700 has 4k60p recording, more capable battery, same A7rIV EVF, and of course same A7rIV autofocus  system
40% chance of getting the new APS-C lenses (most likely a zoom)

Possible surprise:

I am 100% sure a THIRD camera will be announced soon too. I suspect  it’s coming in September/October and not tomorrow. And this might be the A7sIII. But we can always hope for miracles and we might get it tomorrow..

Spread the word and be online tomorrow on SAR!

Check out this! Sony A6300 officially listed as discontinued!

Now try  this: Search for the Sony A6300 on the BHphoto website and it now says that “this item is discontinued“. It’s many years Sony does NOT discontinue their older cameras. So this is quite a news and also a major prove that our rumors are spot on:

Tomorrow Sony will launch two new APS-C Cameras. Those likely to be the A6700 (with IBIS) and A6200!

Stay tuned on SAR  tomorrow (August  28) at 10am New York time!

Thanks Stan!

(SR4) The A6700 might be more exciting than early rumors suggests…

A6700 mockup

Trusted sources still didn’t give me tech specs of the new A6700. All we got so far  from a source is that the  A6700 is something like the  A6400 but with IBIS. Still two more sources said that the A6700 is more exciting than the “A6400+IBIS” rumor suggests.

I  don’t know what this means and I  also don’t want to hype you  too much on this. After all this is a very subjective matter…

What we know so far is this:
Sony has a product launch press event on August 29/30  ( I guess the public announcement will follow the event)
It’s rumored that they will announce two new APS-C E-mount cameras
Those cameras could be the new A6200 (low specs A6400 version) and  the new A6700 (has IBIS).
A third (A7sIII?) camera will be announced on soon to follow new press event…

UPDATE:
Plenty of rumors sites refer to this post on Personal View to say that these might be the A6700 specs. But I talked to PV and they told me it’s a mix of compilation, guesss and “talk” :)

Something stupid you have to know: My Macbook Pro Keyboard is completely broken

It’s time you learn a dark  secret about me: For months now I am using a broken keyboard. I own one of these famous 2016 Macbook PRO’s that keep having issues with their Keyboard. Because of all the rumors and announcements I had this summer I couldn’t afford to  give away my laptop for the  third time(!)  for  1-2 weeks.

And now again we will have  Sony announcement on August 29 and in September more Sony-Tamron-Sigma announcements  :(

So please pardon me if you see those kind of errors:

  • Missing space between words
  • Or suddenly a LOT of space between words
  • missing “g”  “c”  “e”  letters
  • or double-triple “gg” “cc”  “eee”  letters
  • …and so forth  :)

It  sucks…and now I am waiting to  get  the new 16 inch Macbook PRO that  should b announced soon. It will have the classic “scissor” keyboard.

On a positive note: I should receive my Sony A7rIV next week (ordered in Germany) US readers will have to wait 2 more weeks than me…sorry :) amzn.to/2Zk1bwW

Official Tamron teaser for the launch of four new Sony FE lenses!

And here it is the official Tamron teaser for the launch of FOUR new Sony FE lenses!

It’s pretty clear from the image that we should get a new zoom and three primes. The zoom looks to be something like a  70-200mm f/2.8 lens. I wonder how fast the primes will be…

Still from what  I heard it will  still take some time to see those four lenses announced. They will be displayed at the PhotoPlus Show in October and NOT before that!

 

(SR5) Tamron will soon announce FOUR new FE lenses!!!

One of our top sources just told us this:

Tamron will soon launch not one, not two not  three BUT FOUR(!!!) new FE lenses!

I  have no info about the possible specs yet but I  have been told we might “see” something within 24-48 hours!

Stay tuned!
