The Sony HDR-AS30 action camera has been leaked ahead of its official introduction at the IFA Berlin 2013 show on September 4.
Sony will hold a huge press event at IFA Berlin 2013, one of Europe’s largest technology trade fairs. There are several confirmed devices for September 4, including the revolutionary DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 lens-cameras.
The list of upcoming Sony products also includes the Honami Z1 smartphone that features a 20.7-megapixel image sensor and a tiny G lens. This smartphone was previously known as i1 Honami, but the PlayStation seller will most likely go for the Z1 branding.
Sony HDR-AS30 action camera to be announced at IFA Berlin 2013
Either way, the company will make some movements on the action camera market. The Sony HDR-AS30 sports camera has just been leaked on the web on a Polish blog.
It seems like the source loves all things made by Sony and it has managed to obtain a photo of the action shooter ahead of its official announcement.
Sony HDR-AS30 to feature GPS, NFC, and 12-megapixel image sensor
The Sony HDR-AS30 will substitute two cameras: the HDR-AS10 and HDR-AS15. However, it is unknown whether it will be a direct replacement for both of them or if an HDR-AS35 version is coming as well.
According to the rumor mill, the new AS30 will feature a 12-megapixel Exmor R image sensor, Optical SteadyShot technology, Zeiss lens, GPS, NFC, SD card slot, and the ability to capture still images.
Plenty of surprises in tow at tomorrow’s event, but NEX-FF goodness is not among them
There are very few chances that new E-mount or A-mount cameras will be announced at IFA Berlin in Germany. These new products will most likely be introduced at a later time, therefore potential NEX-FF buyers should wait a few more weeks.
Meanwhile, the same thing cannot be said about 4K video camcorders. The FDR-AX1 is thought to be the company’s cheap shooter capable of capturing movies at 4K resolution for a price lower than $5,000.
Another higher-end 4K video camera is coming under the name of PXW-Z100. It should be released on the market at a price around $8,000 by the end of the year.
The event is less than 24 hours away when the rumored products are expected to finally become official. If you are interested in either of them, then you should follow our website closely.
