Sony Compact Alpha Concept Camera
Sony Outlines 3D World Cup Fixtures (trustedreviews). To bad the A7xx will not be ready for that event :(
Sony announce Campaign Award winner (ePhotozine)
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V tested on shutterbug and photographyblog
The Sony A550 is still the most sold Alpha camera in Japan. According to BCNranking it is on position 21 of the weekly sales rankings.
Bad news! C.Garrard from Alpha Mount World wrote that “will suspending my reviews on Alpha related material until further notice”
He doesn’t give any motivation and he add that “My choice doesn’t have to do with a spat with Sony.“.
I hope to see you back soon C.!
We have a small rumor update for you. We had the chance to talk again with our sources and to verify our old rumors. The new Sony A2xx and A3xx will come few weeks after NAB (the NAB takes place on 10 April) and not have video recording. At NAB you will see the A7xx but the camera will not be ready for market release:(
As we already told you there will be a major Sony announcement in May. Sony will launch the two new entry-level cameras, the firmare update and the new mirrorless cameras.
I take the chance to wish you happy easter! Hope you will enjoy some rest with the people you love.
Thanks again for the help you are giving me to make this site become better and better. Your help really matters!
I have two good news to give you:
1) I am working together with 43rumors friends to redesign the website and create a new SonyAlphaRumors community
2) As I always told you this is a new website and I am still learning to manage the rumors I get. But I can guarantee you that the next two months will be full of much better rumors and Sony will definitely release some awesome new products before June!
Enjoy your easter-time!
DxOmark tested the Sony A450. Results are almost the same as the Sony A550. The only real difference is that the Sony A550 is available in the US and the A450 not.
UPDATE: This are fake specs :)
