(SR5) The two pellix cameras will record in AVCHD, have an electronic viewfinder,…


Finally we have some more reliable infos about the Pellix cameras:
1) The Pellix camera will come with an electornic viewfinder (yes like it is shown on the Sony patent)
2) If you want you will be able to move-up the pellix mirror to avoid the light-loss (but phase detection will not work)
3) At least one camera will record in AVCHD (We don’t know if the A33 will record in AVCHD or Mpeg only)
4) The A55 has a 16 Megapixel sensor and the A33 a 14 Megapixel sensor

Both cameras will be released at Photokina. But As I told you before two more ExmorHD Alpha cameras will be announced soon (yes, before Photokina). More news about that will be posted as soon as we get some more reliable infos!


To make our site grow and become better we need your little help:

1) Send us rumors and news
When you find interesting news-rumors-reviews that we didn’t post help us and send us the link to sonyalpharumors@gmail.com.
We can keep you anonymous of course. If you want to feel safe when sending rumors you can also use the contact form on the right sidebar. It doesn’t store your IP-address and you can avoid to give me your name and email.

2) Critizes us
We are currently redesigning the website. So if you have some last-minute suggestions just let us know. If you don’t like something feel free to express your disappointment.

3) Link to us
Many websites do copy rumor/news without linking to us. I already saw 3-4 website which do claim that a certain rumor is from their sources but in fact they are “stealing” the rumor from SonyAlphaRumors. So please link to us :)

4) Help us to cover our server and redesign costs
Every mount we have a small ammount of server costs to cover. A major cost is the website redesign. We do not ask you for donations. The best way to help us is by using our links to amazon-adorama or bhphoto (or redcoon-pixmania if you are located in Europe) when you do shopping. Once you click on them and buy something (it doesn’t matter what) we get a small commission for it and you do not pay any penny more!
If you often shop in Amazon US or BHphoto you can bookmark following link:

When you click on the link to shop you know you will support us :)
If you are from other countries just click on the shop logo you see on the right sidebar. Those are all our affiliates!

This is it! Let’s go back to rumors and news now ;)
