Curious error on the A9 unveils 8k recording menu option
An early tester of the new Sony A9 sent me this:
Today I had the opportunity take a sneak peek at the Sony A9, and while checking the menu there’s a 8K VIDEO option but it’s disabled in the camera, when I asked more about this option the Sony representative took the camera away and noted that it could have been a pre-production error.
Of course the Sony A9 is not capable to record 8K because that would require at least a 33 megapixel sensor. But we know the new menu is going to be used in all future A7 and A9 cameras. So it might be that the A7sIII or A7rIII will have a 33MP sensor with 8K recording? My bet is that the A7rIII would be perfectly suited for such an option. That said I doubt we really need 8K video yet!
