Sony has been impressive so far this year, especially with the latest announcement of the Sony A7 and A7R cameras. If you like where Sony is heading with their cameras, you’ll be more excited when you find out what Sony shooters can expect next year!
Sony Alpha Rumors has posted a list of the rumored cameras from Sony in 2014:
- New APS-C E-mount cameras (branded as Alpha). This includes the NEX-7 successor and new entry level APS-C E-mount cameras
- New A-mount FF camera
- New E-mount FF cameras (yes guys….I intentionally used the plural!)
- With 80% reliability also a hybrid A-E mount high end camera to come.
- UPDATE: I am still not sure if there will be an APS-C A-mount camera. I know there are prototypes of such cameras. Don’t know if and when they will release them.
Panasonic is also expected to release a 4K micro four thirds camera in 2014:
According to two highly trusted sources Panasonic will launch a new High End Micro Four Thirds camera that can record 4K video. The camera will be in Stores by 2014. The model is placed above the current Panasonic GH3. It will not(!) replace it and it will cost much more than the GH3!
And oh, by the way, Sony has a booth at the PDN PhotoPlus 2013 in New York. If you can’t go there, you’ll be glad to know that you can take a tour of their show stand, virtually. Click the image below to get started:
