It's been a while since I posted some tech news but these are hot so I couldn't resist :)
On the 24th of August Sony is about to reveal some exciting new products. The e-mount Sony NEX7 and the a-mount Sony A77 plus some lenses. There is a lot of buzz going on on the internet so I don't want to be too repetitive. Check the links at the end of this post for more information.
Key (video) features among others are:
- AVCHD 2.0
- full HD 1080p at 60/50/25/24p
- full manual control
- 50-16000 ISO
- New 3-way tilting LCD
- three million dot OLED VF
- 1/8000 shutter speed
- 19 point AF system with 11 cross sensors
- 12 FPS (Photo)
- 24 Megapixel sensor
This is the first time Sony is bringing that to the filmmakers. People (on internet discussions) expect image quality across the NEX7 & A77 will be very similar with the FS100 & F3. That would be amazing...
And all this for 1800 Euros (with a 16-50 f2.8 lens included)? I'll believe it when I see it. Maybe it's time to let my trusty hacked GH-1 go... :)
Let's see what the Panasonic GH-3 is coming up with. There are rumors that it will have a global shutter... exciting times :)
and so on...
