The Sony A9 50-megapixel camera will not become official in the near future, says the same source who recently revealed that the device will be announced within a few weeks.
In recent times, a trusted source has claimed that Sony will introduce a 50-megapixel full frame camera sometime during the second quarter of 2015. However, it seems like this information is not true. The same source has just revealed that the device will actually come later in 2015 instead of within a few weeks. Although the exact release date remains unknown, it is said that the Sony A9 50-megapixel camera will still “easily outperform” the quality of the sensor found in the Canon 5DS and 5DS R cameras.
Sony A9 50-megapixel camera coming later in 2015 with new design
The Sony A9 50-megapixel camera is real and is on its way, but it will not become official soon. The source says that there was a misunderstanding with the information he had received, so the device will not be announced within a few weeks.
Nevertheless, the shooter is still coming to the market by the end of 2015 and it will be capable of capturing high-quality photos. Its image sensor will be better than the one found in the Canon 5DS and 5DS R cameras, the source added.
Furthermore, the camera will employ a brand new design, which is different from that of the company’s current cameras. As you have noticed, it appears that the camera is actually an FE-mount full frame model instead of the A-mount flagship replacing the A99. Either way, it will be revealed in 2015, so stay close to Camyx!
A7RII is a Sony camera that will be announced in the near future
Sony fans should still keep their spirits up as the PlayStation maker is definitely planning to introduce a new camera soon.
Recently, we have reported that the A7RII will replace the A7R
The mirrorless camera is expected to feature a similar image sensor to that of its predecessor, but with built-in 5-axis image stabilization technology.
It is very likely that Sony will wait a few days for the NAB Show 2015 event to close its doors in order to introduce its camera, therefore you should not hold your breath over a launch for now.
