(SR4) Sony November 18 rumor…

Share

Dear readers,

we had a second small talk with our trusted source. He again confirms that a new camera will be announced next week. And certainly it will not be the Sony Alpha 750 or whatever. The Sony 700 successor is planned for next year.

The rumored camera will be a completely new one. It will be the first movie and still camera from Sony!

Other sources can’t confirm this rumor. Could be that he received false informations? Improbable, but he promised me to tell me more in few days!

(SR2) Sony

Share

A dpreview user wrote following text: “I found that the Sony RAW file (ARW and SF2) Exif metadata includes a camera model code, stored as the Sony makernotes tag 0xb001. You can read this tag using applications like ExifTool or PhotoMe. The (decimal) codes are as follows:

2 = DSC-R1
256 = DSLR-A100
257 = DSLR-A900
258 = DSLR-A700
259 = DSLR-A200
260 = DSLR-A350
261 = DSLR-A300
???
263 = DSLR-A380
264 = DSLR-A330
265 = DSLR-A230
???
???
???
269 = DSLR-A850
???
???
[??? = DSLR-A500 Files not examined]
273 = DSLR-A550

The “holes” in the list suggest that six (or seven, depending on the unknown A500 code) additional cameras have at least reached the stage in which they get their own code.”
