(SR5) A weird Sony KW1 compact to be announced the coming days.


Like I told you days ago there will be many multiple and separate announcements from Sony. The next one will be very soon and Sony will unveil quite a strange camera. The new KW1.

It’s a compact camera with tiny 1/2.3 inch Exmor RS sensor and a 23mm f/2.0 lens. Quite unusual for a small sensor camera like that to have a prime lens. Makes me wonder if the real special thing of that camera may be a sort of curved sensor…but this is just speculation from my side. Here are the likely real specs of the camera:

– Sensor 1 / 2.3-inch Exmor RS. The number of pixels 19.2 million effective pixels
– Lens Sony G lens. Conversion 21mm F2 (4: 3). Conversion 23mm F2 (16: 9)
– Optical image stabilization
– ND filter built-in
– Monitor 3 inches 1.23 million dots
– The shutter speed -1/8000 seconds 2 seconds
– Camera application corresponding
– MicroSD / SDHC / SDXC
– Wi-Fi, NFC
– The size is 57.7mm x 125mm x 20.1mm
– 120 g Weight (body only). (Including media and battery) 136 g
