Sony CEO Hirai talked a lot about the A7s, A7 and great Sony sensor technique. But there were no new A and E-mount announcements today (as expected). For that we have to wait just 4 weeks more (early February).

The focus at CES was on TV’s and other stuff including the new 4K actioncamera and 4K camcorders. All that stuff can be seen on that Sony special CES page (Click here).

And here are some info:
Action Cam HDR-AS200V Promotion Movie (Sony Action Cam Youtube). And many more sample videos at youtube.com/user/ActionCamfromSony/videos
Action Cama nd Camcorders hands-on pictures at Engadget.
Videos about more of their new CES stuff like TV’s at Sony Youtube.

(SR5) First image leak of the new Sony 4K actioncamera.


Bildschirmfoto 2015-01-05 um 13.22.02

Dvinfo found images of the new Sony stuff. This is the first image of the Sony 4K Actioncamera. The $500 X100V is a 4K actioncamera with image stabilization which will be in Store by February. It costs $100 more than the GoPRO4 but unlike the GoPro the Sony comes with on lens stabilization. Keep in mind that the GoPRO Hero4 is the most sold overall(!) camera at Amazon US (ranking here). Let’s see if Sony can succeed to dethrone that hotseller!

There is also a new AX33 4K camcorder that will go on sale for $1,100 AX33 in February.

No E or E-mount stuff will be announced today. But we will not have to wait a long time. Only 4 weeks until the next Sony press announcement before CP+ ;)

Thanks Cliff!

I got my hands on a list of products that Sony will announce today in Las Vegas (5pm Las Vegas time):

1) HDR-AS200V: Successor of the current Sony HDR-AS100V POV Action Cam. This is rumored to have 4K recording (Source: ActionCameraRumors).

2) Three (all 4K!) camcorders: FDR-X1000V, FDR-AXP35 and FDR-AX30

So far no new A and E-mount stuff (as expected).
