Short heads up: I got the final confirmation the Sony A7rII (and RX100m4/RX10m2) online preorders will start at exactly 11am London time. If you preorder the new camera at BHphoto using my affiliated links you will have the chance to win a $100 rebate! Feel free to also send me links of other stores accepting preorders. This way we will make sure SAR readers will get the first in line on the very long A7rII preorder list :)
Rebate action notes: Four preorders will be randomly chosen by BHphoto. They will get notified by BH and get the $100 off (The A7rII will cost $3098). This “action” is available for all worldwide preorders and not only for US!
One more thing: SAR reader Alin Popescu was present at the Sony London A7rII presentation event. He told me that:
YES – you can charge via USB while using the camera (possible maybe with new firmware updates for other cameras too)
YES YES – you can reprogram the Record Video button to be used with any other customizable button (not with the shutter button though). Here is a small Demo video I did to show this feature
YES – new ISO Auto Minimum Shutter Speed
New focus area Flexble Spot with area (or something like this, I forgot the name). What it does, it uses close focus points to the one selected
And many more goodies. I’ve posted some more images on my blog – http://www.alinpopescu.eu/blog/test-hands-on-cu-a7r-ii-rx100-iv-si-rx10-ii-hands-on/
