Sony New Camera / Lenses Coming Next Week ?

Sony is rumored to announced Brand New Camera to Possibly a new Lens next week according to veteran rumor mills. However, at the same time the Rumor mill didn’t share any information on the type of product expected to arrive next.

Well Sony registered a product WW 771132  at Indonesian wireless agencies. You can See the list of products below [also at our upcoming camera code page]. So, once the company register a product, then usually they take 3 to 4 months of time to make it official.

We all know that Sony A7 S II camera update is overdue. So, we are expecting that Sony will going to update the Sony A7 S III camera as soon as possible without any for the delay. But, at the same time before announcement of any camera we do get lot of leaks including images, specs and images. And we aren’t getting any sort of information related to the upcoming product which make us believe that yes something is coming but it’s not the Sony A7S III camera.

Sony RX100 VI (WW 771132)

Japanese sources clearly hinting us that Sony will going to announce a new compact camera very soon. And as we all know that Sony RX100 V camera is the only camera left for an update. So, yes, their is a big possibility that Sony may going to announce the Sony RX100 VI camera in next few days or weeks.

We will update you soon as we get any new information, stay with us (FACEBOOK | TWITTER | GOOGLE+) If you have time –> see more Sony Rumor

Canon Patent 55-200mm IS II USM Lens

In a recent patent document we have spotted, Canon working on 55-200mm lens. The patent is very new, as usual the patent documents doesn’t contain a lot much details inside. But, we do believe that the lens will going to have NANO USM Motor as we have seen inside the Canon 70-300mm IS II USM Lens. Let’s talk in details.

The 55-200mm USM II lens is actually a successor of Highly popular EF-S 55-200mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM LensThe Canon EF-M 55-200mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens Announced back on June 17 2014. The lens is hardly 4 years old but we have seen a lot of improvement in Auto-Focusing tech inside Canon DSLRs And to match the AF speed requirement of current generation of DPAF sensor and to become compatible for future DPAF and QPAF Sensor they will going to introduce Nano USM AF Motors inside the lens which we have already seen inside the Canon 70-300mm Lens. The Nano-USM based lenses silent like STM but they do a blazing fast AF, even faster than the STM version.

Canon 55-200 MM USM II Lens Patent Details

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To obtain a zoom lens that is small in the whole system, has a high zoom ratio and high optical performance in the whole zoom range, and facilitates image blur correction.SOLUTION: The zoom lens is composed of, successively arranged from an object side to an image side, a first lens group B1 having a positive refractive power, a second lens group B2 having a negative refractive power, a third lens group B3 having a positive refractive power, a fourth lens group B4 having a negative refractive power, and a fifth lens group having a positive refractive power. Upon zooming, at least three lens groups move to vary intervals between adjoining lens groups. The third lens group B3 is composed of, successively arranged from the object side to the image side, a B3a group having a positive refractive power, a B3b group having a negative refractive power, and a B3c group having a positive refractive power. Upon correcting image blur, the B3b group moves in a direction having a component perpendicular to the optical axis. A focal length ft of the whole system at a telephoto end, a focal length f3 of the third lens group, and a total lens length TL at the telephoto end are each appropriately set.

Sony A7S III to Have UXGA OLED Micro-display

Sony finally announced a new 0.5-type UXGA OLED Micro-display, which is can be used as Viewfinder of  upcoming Mirrorless cameras such as Sony A7S III or may be A9R. The newly announced OLED display features Top-of-Class UXGA Resolution, Featuring the World’s Smallest Pixel Pitch of 6.3µm

OLED Microdisplays are widely used in digital camera electronic viewfinders (EVF) for their superior high contrast, high color gamut, and high-speed responsiveness. Sony, having achieved this high resolution and high frame rate, now offers even more realistic image display and accurate capture of subjects for use in high-end cameras that demand extremely high image quality.

.Sony Releases 0.5-type OLED Microdisplay with Top-of-Class UXGA Resolution, Featuring the World’s Smallest Pixel Pitch of 6.3µm

Tokyo, Japan—Sony Corporation today announced the upcoming release of the ECX339A OLED Microdisplay featuring UXGA (1600 x 1200 resolution), the highest in class for a 0.5-type. This product achieves the world’s smallest pixel pitch of 6.3μm by leveraging Sony’s OLED display technology and miniaturization technology, enabling a resolution 1.6x higher than the previous model*1. By employing a new drive circuit design that operates on half the voltage of the previous model*1, the new product achieves the same level of low-power operation as its predecessor but with much higher resolution. When paired with Sony’s original driving system*2, a frame rate up to 240 fps is supported—double that of previous product*1.

Enhancing the resolution on microdisplays has traditionally presented problems such as deteriorating image quality due to decreased pixel pitch and inferior viewing angle properties. The new product features optimized transistors layout and process to address uneven characteristics and loss of withstand voltage, the issues associated with transistor miniaturization. The Sony original variation compensation circuit also enhances picture quality. Additionally, the color filter is deposited directly on the silicon substrate, reducing its distance from the light emitting layer, and the filter’s color array has been modified. This helps to secure the viewing angle properties while achieving high resolution.

OLED Microdisplays are widely used in digital camera electronic viewfinders (EVF) for their superior high contrast, high color gamut, and high-speed responsiveness. Sony, having achieved this high resolution and high frame rate, now offers even more realistic image display and accurate capture of subjects for use in high-end cameras that demand extremely high image quality.

Going forward, Sony expects this high-definition OLED Microdisplay to be employed in a diverse range of fields and applications such as AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality) head-mounted displays.

  • *1Compared with the Sony OLED Microdisplay ECX337A (0.5-type QVGA (1280×960)).
  • *2Driving method of dual vertical line simultaneously (“Dual-line progressive” driving technique)

Main Features

  1. High-resolution UXGA in a 0.5-type
    The new product has achieved the world’s smallest pixel pitch of 6.3μm by leveraging Sony’s proprietary OLED display technology and miniaturization technology, and has superior resolution 1.6x higher than the previous model*1. Generally, transistor miniaturization results in characteristic variation and reduced withstand voltage. This product uses a Sony original compensation circuit and optimized layouts and process for each individual transistor to address these adverse effects. Furthermore, the color filter is deposited directly on the silicon substrate, reducing its distance from the light emitting layer, and the filter’s color array has been modified to secure the viewing angle properties while achieving high resolution.
  2. High-speed frame rate
    A new drive circuit design supports a high frame rate of up to 240 fps*2, nearly double that of its predecessor*1. This has made it possible to capture fast-moving subjects in the viewfinder with higher accuracy, so users will not miss a photo opportunity, delivering a more comfortable shooting experience. In head-mounted display devices, this will help to improve image delay issue for items superimposed on real-world vision of AR and to avoid motion sickness during usage of these kinds of devices.
  3. Low power consumption
    By employing newly-designed peripheral circuits that operate on half the voltage of previous model*1, the new product delivers the same low-power operation as its predecessor when operating at the same frame rate, despite the nearly 1.6x increase in the number of pixels.
