You can follow Sony’s press conference at 9am CET on 11 September!



On September 11 at 9am CET time Sony will have a press conference at the IBC show in Amsterdam. And you can follow the event live on the following Sony Uk page. I will also embed the live streaming on SAR.

Sony will ddefinitely announce a new E-mount 4K camcorder. There is a very small chance the might announce the A6xxx too. There is almost near zero chance to see the new A7sII. The PhotoPlus show in October is the more “ideal” place to announce the A7sII.

Zeiss Batis gets Cosina warranty in Japan (so now you know who builds them).



Zeiss stated many times that the new Batis lenses are manufactured in Japan without to mention the exact company. And of course we already highly suspected Cosina is the one making those. One more proof of that is that the first Batis lenses are now for sale on eBay Japan (Click here) and they come with a 1 year Cosina(!) warranty.

Last week Zeiss also promised that they will increase the production of Batis lenses. Let’s hope you can get your preorder soon! I already spent my $$$ on the 90mm FE

Why Sony Sees Its Next Big Hit at 1,000 Photos a Second (Bloomberg). And Canon announces a 250MP sensor.



Bloomberg reports that Sony is focusing on sensors that take photos at least 10 times faster than the human eye can see. Sony is working with Nissan Motor Co. and a Tokyo University to create an affordable 1,000 fps sensor for the automotive market.

What is really cool to see is the superfast tracking system that keeps the object in focus and in the center of the image:

The video is made by the University of Tokyo with whom Sony iw working with. It would be amazing to have a focus tracking system like this on a camera for sports and wildlife photography!

Image on top shows the Sony A7s sensor.

This comes via one of my highly trusted sources. He got news about a new Sony camcorder prototype having the same Sony A7s sensor and internal 4K recording. The source added that he doesn’t know yet when that camcorder will be announced. Let’s hope that is the new FS camcorder that Sony will announce on September 11.
