More Sony rumors have been revealed by a reliable source, who is claiming that we should not rule out the possibility of seeing a NEX-7 replacement with a full frame sensor being launched sometime in September 2014.
Numerous Sony products are expected to become official in the coming weeks. The Japan-based company may held several announcement events around the Photokina 2014 in order to introduce multiple cameras and lenses.
The list can now grow by one more product as a highly-trusted source is reporting that a Sony NEX-7 replacement with a full frame sensor might be unveiled in September.
Sony NEX-7 successor rumored to feature full frame sensor and to come this September
A Sony NEX-7 replacement had been rumored for months in 2013 before it became clear that such product would not be announced last year.
When the A6000 was launched, it took the place of both the NEX-6 and NEX-7 shooters. However, many photographers are still expecting to see a true heir to the top APS-C E-mount camera.
According to a source familiar with the matter, who has been right in the past, the device is finally coming this September with the Photokina 2014 as a strong candidate for its launch event.
It appears that the PlayStation maker has developed a NEX-7-like prototype featuring a full frame image sensor, which could make its way onto the market soon. This would put the camera in the same department as the A7, A7R, and A7S.
Nevertheless, the presence of a full frame sensor would mean that the camera is not a real Sony NEX-7 successor. It is a matter of perspective, but the information is based on gossip talks therefore it needs to be taken with a grain of salt.
About the Sony A6000
Sony has announced the A6000 as a camera with the fastest autofocus system in the world that consists of 179 AF points. It has been said to be an NEX-6 successor. However, it has quickly been revealed that it serves as an NEX-7 replacement, too.
The shooter comes packed with a 24.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, integrated OLED electronic viewfinder, 3-inch LCD articulated screen, maximum ISO of 25,600, and a continuous shooting mode of up to 11fps.
The mirrorless camera features built-in WiFi and NFC, meaning that it can be connected to a mobile device. If you want to experience this first hand, then you can purchase the Sony A6000 at Amazon for roughly $650.
