Sony NEX-5n first look and image samples. It is the most sold Sony camera and in Stock now at Amazon!

Share

The video on top belongs to Steve Huff (Click here) that just posted a new Sony NEX-5n preview: “The one thing I noticed when I started shooting the 5N is the color is greatly improved. Also, higher ISO all the way up to 12800 is improved with this new sensor so Sony has done it yet again in regards to low light performance in a tiny body. The shutter sound has improved and we now get a solid and quick snick compared to the sloppy thunk of the NEX-5. The 5N seems like a great BANG FOR THE BUCK kind of camera.“. You can also see some image samples on his website. Another two website posted a set of image samples, Dpnow (Click here) and Fotopolis (Click here).

And as you see from the latest Amazon ranking (Click here to see them) the Sony NEX-5n is the best sold (or preordered) Sony camera (Position 13).  Also because it is in Stock now (Click here)! The two NEX-7 kits (Click here to preorder) are on position 19 and 20.

(SR5) A Fullframe rumors summary.

Share

Paul Genge from Sony UK said at British Journal of Photography that the firm has still to make a decision on whether it will use its Translucent Mirror Technology in the upcoming models. And he said that a new Alpha full-frame camera would replace the A850 and A900 released in 2008.

That is more or less all what Sony had to say about their future Fullframe plans. What do I know more in terms of fullframe rumors?

1) The roadmap for FF lenses and camers has been shifted forward for a couple of months. Like it was for the A77 everything has been delayed. I will give you more info about the new Fulflrame lenses soon.
2) There will be more than one (probably three!) new fullframe cameras in 2012
3) Not a single one of those will have a classic DSLR design (no classic mirror, no prisma)
4) The A99 (one of the three cameras) should be unveiled before the Photokina 2012 show in September (I am not sure yet when Sony will announced about other one-two fullframe cameras)
5) Sony developed a new 36Megapixel fullframe sensor which will probably fit inside the A99.

Of course I received more details, but I need to double and triple check them with other sources. I ask my sources if they cans hare me some bits about the future Sony FF roadmap. As you know you can use the anonymous contact form on the right sidebar or write me at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com. Thanks!

What I can also say is that my trusted sources are sure the new FF cameras will shake the world. And I am sure they mean it very honestly!

See you soon!
Andrea

Sony NEX-FS100 review at Engadget.

Share

[viddler id=cf71bbcc&w=545&h=307]

Engadget (Click here) tested the Sony NEX-FS100: “Some gadgets are worth making sacrifices for, however, and this is one of them. It delivers the raw cinematic beauty permitted by a large sensor, along with a smart lens platform and all the essential video and audio controls and I/O options required by any professional shooter. Muscling through on a DSLR or VG10 does not even compare.“. You can get the NEX-FS100 at BHphpoto (Click here).

Sony NEX-C3 review at Soundimagesplus (Click here): “While I’m still not convinced that the NEX system, as it currently stands, is for me, there is no doubt that you get an awful lot of good things for your money. First and foremost here is the file size and image quality. Top quality and certainly equal to and in many cases better than a DSLR.“. The NEC-C3 is in Stock at [shopcountry 7207].

Juan sent me one of the most amazing fisheye pictures I have ever seen. You can see it at aragon360grados.260mb.com (Click here). It has been made with the [shoplink 3003]Sony NEX-5[/shoplink] + [shoplink 8622 ebay]Samyang 8mm[/shoplink]. It is a fast action 360º panorama, shot in maual mode and fast burst at the base jumping place in Montrebey, Aragón wall (Spain). The Samyang 8mm lens is available for NEX on [shoplink 8622 ebay]eBay (Click here to check specs and price)[/shoplink].
