Good news folks! Sony unveiled the new compact cameras. Why is that good news? Tonight Sony will held a live press conference. I expect them to show something more than just the already presented compact cameras ;)

The first website to report the compact camera news is Focus Numerique.

Sony launched the H-Series with large zoom new waterproof cameras and more…That’s a total of 9 cameras! As we told you yesterday the compact cameras with 1080p60 will be announced in february and not yet!

Small CES updates

Share


I didn’t receive any new rumor about the “mysterious” NEX camera. The only thing we know for sure is that there will be at least one new NEX camera (prototype?). Another source told us that Sony will also show again a Sony A77 prototype. I really hope it’s not the same prototype shown at the Photokina (see the picture on top) as this is definitely NOT the real A77. Anyway I hope to have more reliable and detailed info soon. And if not, than the Sony live conference (scheduled for Wednesday 5pm Las Vegas time) will give us the final answer.

Rumor correction: A few Sony compact cameras will be announced in February and not at the CES. That includes the rumored compact camera with 1080p60 recording. We will post a new article about that soon.

(SR4) NEX-4 (prototype?) to be shown at CES

Share

We all know Sony has a maniacal love for prototypes. Now according to one of our very good sources Sony will show a prototype of a new NEX camera at the CES show. But before you start to blame Sony I have a good news for you. According to a second trusted source that camera will be on market within 2-3 months so unlike the A77 prototype we don’t have to wait that much to buy it!

It has been very difficult for me to get some info about that camera. It’s a prototype that only a few people have seen (it has been shipped from Japan to US without informing the press about his existence). That is what I got from different sources:

Trusted source 1: The new model is called NEX-4. But this could be the temporary name ony (for the prototype). I was told that this is not the NEX-7 which is supposed to become the GH2 competitor.
Trusted source 2: It’s a compact NEX with slightly bigger body than the current Sony NEX-5. It has advanced button controls like the Panasonic GF1.
New source 3: I suspect Sony will come out the new nex mirrorless version of a55 during CES next week. (Don’t know if the source wanted to say that it uses the same 16Megapixel sensor).

I was told Sony will also show the A77 prototype and maybe something else (Lenses?). If you have some rumors to share feel free to contact me using the contact form on the right sidebar or write me (Andrea) at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com.

(SR4) A new NEX camera to be announced within the next 2-3 months.

Share

According to one of my very best sources Sony’s next camera will be a new NEX model. The Sony A77 translucent camera will be launched 3-4 months after that model. I am currently investigating the details I received with the rumor. It sounds like this is an unexpected camera which means we never have talked about that camera before on SonyAlphaRumors. So please help me if you can :) If you know more about the next NEX camera (or other Sony cameras) feel free to contact me at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com. You can also use the contact form on the right sidebar. To keep yourself anonymous avoid to give me your real name and email address. But it would be nice if you could use some kind of nickname so that I can recognize you in future. Thanks!
