(SR5) Sony official invitation for “an exciting new camera”….but don’t get too excited, it might be camcorder only

Share

Sony sent out this newsletter to PRO film makers teasing the launch of “an exciting new camera” at the NABshow on October 18. I do hope this use of the word “exciting” will not disappoint us when the camera get’s…”real”. It might as well be something for the professional camcorder market. So please keep your expectations low as we learned from the RX10IV announcement!

Moreover I told you before that there are likely two announcements! One at the NABshow and one at the Photoplus. Don’t know yet if the new A7sIII (still unconfirmed rumor) will be announced at NABshow or Photoplus. What’s sure is that Sony will still announce a camera within the next few weeks as it got registered already (via Nokishita):

(SR4) Surprise: Two press announcements from Sony: One on Oct 18 and one on Oct 25-26?

Share

I am 100% that on Wednesday (Oct 18) Sony will announce a new camera. But I just got a “hint” that there might be a second announcement at the PhotoPlus Show on October 25-26.

UPDATE: We don’t know with 100% certainity if the camera coming on October 18 is the new A7sIII or a new camcorder.
