There were some “rumors” that Sony will have a new camera on display at the 2019 Photo Plus show… Well, this will be kind of hard because from what I can see Sony will not take part in the 2019 Photo Plus show. Sony is not listed at the official 2019 Photo Plus website and I […]

Where is the high-end Sony APS-C mirrorless camera with a built-in EVF?

Several readers asked me where the “rumored” high-end Sony APS-C mirrorless camera with a built-in EVF is.

In an interview, Sony’s manager also confirmed that they are planning to announce a new APS-C mirrorless camera before the CP+ show […]

The Internet is flooded with fake pictures and made-up specifications of the upcoming Sony APS-C camera. The model names are also all over the place (a6700, a7000, a5500 etc).

If you believe the Internet, Samsung is now also making sensors for Fuji/Pentax/Ricoh

In addition to making full frame sensors for Panasonic (?) and coming back with their own new mirrorless camera (?), Samsung is apparently now also making APS-C sensors for… Fujifilm and also Ricoh/Pentax… The source?

List of questionable reports about new products “rumored” to be announced for Photokina

As I already reported, the Sony product announcement at the IBC 2018 show yesterday was not photography related: Sony announced only two new camcorders (HXR-NX200 and HDC-3500). No new Sony a6500 replacement or a Sony a7sIII cameras were announced at the IBC show yesterday as some websites have suggested. There was also no Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF […]
