Sony is rumored to finally announce the price tag of the A7S 4K video recording mirrorless camera soon, while the A6000 has finally started shipping to the United States.
Earlier in April 2014, Sony has launched a new mirrorless camera with a full frame image sensor and support for E-mount lenses. It is called Sony A7S and it is capable of capturing movies at a resolution of 4K with the help of an external recorder.
The Japan-based company has not provided any availability details about the A7S. The only information that industry watchers and fans have told says that we will find out soon enough.
Sony A7S price and release date will become official on April 30
There are lots of voices claiming that Sony is holding a very important event ahead or during the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards exhibition. Beside the overall winner of the 2014 SWPA photo contest, the Japanese manufacturer will reveal a bunch of lenses and a couple of cameras at the Somerset House in London, UK.
Nevertheless, it appears that the Sony A7S price will also become official. There is no rumor regarding the exact amount, but a lot of people have said that it should not go over the Panasonic GH4 price, which stands at about $1,700 at Amazon.
Moreover, the release date should not be delayed for very long, but we should wait for Sony to make it official before speculating much longer.
The A7S features a 12.2-megapixel full frame sensor, BIONZ X image processor, maximum ISO sensitivity of 409600, 3-inch tilting LCD touchscreen, WiFi, NFC, and a Fast Intelligent AF technology.
Sony A6000 has begun shipping for some lucky customers
Another important camera in Sony’s line-up is the new A6000. Unveiled in February 2014, the device has been set for a late April 2014 release date and a price tag of under $650.
Most retailers say that the mirrorless camera with a 24.3-megapixel APS-C image sensor will begin shipping on April 29. However, there are reports saying that some lucky photographers have already received their pre-ordered units.
Meanwhile, Amazon is also selling the Sony A6000 for a price of $648. Let us know if you received your camera and do not forget to share your initial impressions in the comments section below the article.
