(SR4) Development of the new a-e hybrid bridge camera project confirmed. Release Photokina 2014.


I am getting more and more details about the new Sony roadmap. As I told you before the next camera should be the new NEX-7 successor (shipping from October). We will have new A-mount FF and APS-C cameras (mirrorless) in early 2014. And we will see the first FF-NEX compact camera in mid 2014 too.

And according to one of my best sources Sony also finally approved the new a-e hybrid bridge camera project development. This camera is scheduled for a release in late 2014 right in time for Photokina! As I told you before I have no clue yet how this thing is going to work. And the only example we have form the past is the Zeiss Ikon Contax I, II and III (here on eBay). It had a sort of native double mount on camera.

Anyway, stay tuned, I am working very busy with my sources to grab some info about the specs off all these new cameras. One thing is sure. 2014 is going to be a hell of a year for all of us A and E-mount owners!
