Sony Affordable Fullframe Camera - Rumor Update

Sony-FF-NEX-image1According to a recent email we got from a anonymous emailer, Sony will announce Affordable fullframe camera within the next 6 months, Possibly before Q2 of 2016. The affordable fullframe camera is a part of Sony strategy to completely overtake the Fullframe camera market.

Sony recently announced next generation of A7 series camera that become Amazon best seller in short-span of time. The upcoming camera will compete with Nikon D610 and Canon 6D and will beat it with its advance specification and affordable price tag.


Sony affordable fullframe mirrorless patent

We have already published Sony Affordable fullframe mirrorless camera patent on October 2013.

Sony putting less attention towards the development of APS-C sensors based camera from past 1 year and only concentrating on fullframe business. We really like the effort made by Sony to bring High-end core specification under reasonable price tag. But at the same time we also want to say that Sony must put attention towards the development of SLT series and APS-C based mirrorless + SLT camera.

Sony A3000 Finally Discontinued, What Next ?

Sony-A3000-MII-imageSony now having a increasing list of left over camera, Sony A3000 finally discontinued in absence of a proper successor. The Sony A3000 was announced by Sony on 27 August 2013 and after 2 years, 1 months the camera production is fully stopped.

Sony A3000 was actually a E-mount based mirrorless camera by having a DSLR styled body, the camera was actually designed  to steal the attraction of entry level DSLR lovers. The camera features Large APS-C Exmor™ sensor with 20.1 effective megapixels and integrated SteadyShot technology for pro-quality pictures and Full HD AVCHD video.

The camera is still available at Amazon.com till stock last.

Sony also announced A3500 camera on March 2014 but it failed to show any noticeable difference from A3000. Why we said Sony again ignoring camera, for details click on the links [link 1] [link 2] ?



Why Sony Is ignoring A-mount Series ?


Will it be fair to believe that Sony is overlooking the production of A-Mount cameras? We’ll find it a much true upto a certain point. By the way, No need to describe the position of Sony in the imaging world, a royal corporate, better known for providing innovative and latest new products. But one thing we find hard to swallow is why Sony constantly keeps on ignoring the SLT series or A-mount cameras? And this very thing has forced us to write something to find out the cause of their ignorance.


Announcement date SLT/A-mount Mirrorless FE/E-mount cameras
Sep 2012 Sony A99
No A99 update arrive till now after its announcement
May 2014 Sony A77 II Sony A5100
The Sony A77 II was the SLT camera announced on May 2014
Aug 2014 Sony A7 II( full frame)
 Nov 2014  Sony A7 R II
Sep 2015 Sony A7s II

If you remember, Sony A77 II, may be the last camera built with SLT/A-mount, which was announced in May 2014. After A77 II, Sony brought one after one cameras but these all were mirrorless.

Sony A99 II update is due and users are waiting it for a long time. We do have lots of rumors related to A99 II but no confirmed information from Sony.

Recently, the back to back hit of Sony are its A7S II and Sony A7R II, but the one which influenced more is Sony A7R ii, sketched over complete and much more innovative specifications having the 399 AF system along with amazing 42.4 mp of resolution but at last it’s also full-frame mirrorless camera.

You know, thousands and thousands of users are searching answers about the putting a full stop to the A-mount production but Sony feel better to keep their mouth shut.

We are with Sony SLT users and we strongly recommend Sony to match the update frequency of SLT series with it’s Mirrorless series. Share this article in your social handle, Websites and forums.

Sony Hybrid Microlens Patent


Sony patented a Hybrid Micro lens, the micro-lens of the latest Sony sensor is composed to two sub-pixels, one pixel is dedicated for auto-focusing and the other pixel is light sensitive.

The main objective of Sony is to remove the light blocking pixels from the sensor. If all the micro-lenses of the sensor are photosensitive than the camera will give fast contrast AF and neat High ISO images.

Description, self-interpretation of the patent literature

  • Patent Publication No. 2015-153975
    • Published 2015.8.24
    • Filing date 2014.2.18
  • Sony patents

    • The first pixel for focus detection
    • The second pixel imaging
    • Micro lenses as viewed from the first pixel are inclined

Sony Confirmed - New Lenses Coming Soon


In an interview published at amateurphotographer Yoshiyuki Nogami, senior GM of the marketing division at Sony’s Digital Imaging Business Group, said: ‘Lens line-up expansion is very important and it is a must for Sony to do so.’

However later he clarified that Last year in an interview, Sony said it planned to expand the FE lens line-up to 20 in 2016.

If we look at the Sony lens line-up than they need to announce 10 more lenses to complete the count upto 20.

However according to the latest rumors floating over the web Sony is rumored to announce 8 new FE Lenses til Spring 2016!

 Sensor: Since both the siblings have 12.2MP Full-Frame Exmor CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Image Processor. Due to their presence, it minimizes the noise production and also enables sensitivity from ISO 100-102400, which is further expandable to ISO 50-409600. The Sony didn’t increase the ISO range of Sony A7SII. Our earlier expectation was that it will come with more ISO range than its predecessor, to make the image sensor more sensitive to light.

Auto-focus: Sony A7S II features fast and Intelligent AF system employs 169 AF points, the AF points are composed of 25 contrast-detection points and nine central AF points that have been split into 16 segments each, the AF system not only faster than of Sony A7s but it also features greater accuracy.

Sony A7S II supports Internal UHD 4K Recording, which the Sony A7S II was missing. The video of Sony A7S II contain more details, better color, contrast and sharpness compared to the Sony A7S. The Sony A7S II is free from line skipping or pixel binning, the A7S II features full pixel readout the terminates the issue loss of details, advance AF detection algorithm speed-up the AF speed of the camera 2 times more compared to its predecessor.

Sony Alpha 7SII vs. Sony Alpha 7S 2

Sony A7SII can record 120fps at 100Mbps without pixel binning in full frame format also results in 4x/5x slow motion footage in Full HD. It has the ability to shoot 4x/5x slow motion footage internally.

Introduction of image stabilization: presence of 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system in Sony A7SII makes it smooth shooting of stills and video by reducing five types of camera shake and it also it will give the option to the users to use any lens, or adapted lenses without facing any problems created by camera shake. But there is absent of such type of stabilization system in Sony A7S.

Rest of the core specification remains same.

Verdict: The Sony A7S II camera does have many upgrades over the Sony A7S camera but the sensor and image processor remains same. Finally the image quality of both the camera will be similar. For still shooters and owners of Sony A7S camera we don’t recommend to update you current camera against A7S II and you must wait for a better model, possibly the Sony A7S III with a new sensor and image processor.

The biggest disappointment is the use of same sensor instead of developing a new one, Sony does have the capability to make Hybrid sensor as we already see in Sony A7R II camera. It’s better to say Sony updated the Sony A7S Camera, it’s not a new version
