(SR5) UPDATeD: Sony press release teaser!!!


And now it is official! Sony will announce the new DSLR on August 24! They also say that those are “never-before-seen Sony SLR’s”!!! And since November 2009 SonyAlphaRumors is telling you that those are the new translucent cameras. The semi transparent pellicle allows to have Phase detection during video recording. You can alos move up the transparent mirror (if you don’t want to have the little light loss when using the mirror). Very fast 10fps (frames per second).

UPDATE: We now know the original source of the teaser leak:

(SR4) Sony training with new DSLR on August 31?


Prime time crew has intercepted an email from a local camera shop regarding training on three new digital slr’s. At least one of these is a pellicle mirror camera. Numerous people within the company have seen and handled it. The training starts on Tuesday August 31. The email also says that the new cameras will be introduced on August 22nd (but we from SonyAlphaRumors do not know if that is a public event or just a private introduction for dealers).

Thanks Primetimecrew!
