Sony MAY announce on August 24

NEW CAMERAS:

VG-20 -> I have zero information other than the expectation a 16MP chip will be used

NEX-5N -> An updated Sony NEX-5 with 16MP sensor

NEX-7 -> has a Fuji X100 viewfinder


MISC:

LA-EA2 with built-in Translucent mirror feeding an AF sensor and AF motor for A-mounts

Vertical Grip VG-C77AM


LENSES:

16-50mm f/2.8 SSM -> may be 17-50mm
Zeiss 24mm f/1.8
Sony 55-210mm f/4-6.3 OSS
Sony 50mm f/1.8 OSS

STILL NO FAST (F2) MEDIUM (20-100mm) ZOOM!


WILL THESE CAMERAS FINALLY HAVE FULL MANUAL CONTROL IN VIDEO MODE?

A77 -> 24 megapixels
A65 -> Has the same 24 Megapixel sensor but less fps

Re: Sony MAY announce on August 24

I'm not sure it's realistic to expect a f2.0 20-100mm zoom in APS-C/S35 size from any lens manufacturer anytime soon...

Re: Sony MAY announce on August 24

Agreed. Nikon and Canon offer no intermediate zoom that has that range for either APS-C or FF. Best you can hope for is something along the lines of 24-70 f/2.8.

I was surprised when I saw some faster zooms for the GH1/GH2, but then again, its not the size of APS-C, let alone full frame.

Never mind one that most folks considering this form factor would consider AFFORDABLE...

Re: Sony MAY announce on August 24

Here's the VG20 image, if you believe the article. Looks a lot like the VG10.
And the A77. Very nice looking camera.

Re: Sony MAY announce on August 24

16MP Exmor sensor -- wheee
RAW image capture capabilities -- who cares on a video camera

Touch screen -- could be a big deal

Improved audio controls
19201080 24p, 60i and 60p video capabilities (AVCHD 2.0) -- will it be native p24 and p60? Is the 60i from a 60Hz sensor. I assume this all good news.

Price should be the same as the current VG-10. Too expensive if I get everything on the NEX-5 for about half the price. The NEX-7 might even offer more at $1300.

Re: Sony MAY announce on August 24

The A77 can record 1080/60P and 24P, like the VG20. I believe the NEX-7 can, too.
Are they viable options to the VG20? The A77 can record up to 30 minutes of continuous HD video. But will it be susceptible to overheating, like most HDSLRs? That would be a major drawback to me, especially here in sunny Florida.

Re: Sony MAY announce on August 24

Never mind the NX5 having an uprated sensor - let's just give it a decent top screen first, shall we? And while we're at it, can we have a font size bigger than the 1mm high icons we have at present?

Re: Sony MAY announce on August 24

What's your problem with the LCD?

And there is a great new VF.
