(SR4) UPDATED -> Sony will launch a new camera on November 18!

SonyAlphaRumors has got an important information from one of our most trusted sources. Sony is ready to launch a new camera on November 18! The camera will have the new (4/3 ?) exmor sensor and Full HD video recording. With the camera Sony wants to compete against the Panasonic GH1.

UPDATE: The only thing we know is that Sony will launch a direct GH1 competitor on mid November. This will be the first Sony camera with Video recording! We do not know if the camera will be the first model of a mirrorless system. We are working to get more infos!

UPDATE2: Most of the mystery is given by the “4/3” sign. We don’t know if it means that:
1) Sony will become a strong competitor of the Panasonic GH1 camera (which has a 4/3 sensor)
2) Sony will use a 4/3 sensor but with a proprietary mount
3) Sony will join the MicroFourThirds system

Option 1 is the more realistic answer.

Keep following us in the next days.

UPDATE: We downgraded the rumor from SR5 to SR4. We heard the source again and he still confirms the rumor. Anyway we thought we should only give SR5 value when we have a real proove (image or whatever).
