Sony might announce the A6100 mirrorless camera by the end of November, according to some sources, who have also leaked some details about its specs list.
Although FE-mount cameras are selling like hot pancakes, the Japanese company has not completely forgotten its older customers. The A-mount is not dead, as Sony has just revealed the lower-end A68 camera, and the same thing can be said about the E-mount.
Multiple sources are reporting that the Sony A6100 will be unveiled this November as a successor to the A6000, while revealing some of its specifications, such as the total count of megapixels and autofocus points.
Sony A6100 announcement event scheduled for late November 2015
The E-mount saga is not over, yet. A lot of gossips have been spread around regarding the A6000 and A7000 replacements. It was said that the A7000 will replace the NEX-7, while some said that it would also succeed the A6000. After many months of rumors, it seems like the Sony A6100 is the one which is coming and it will only substitute the A6000.
The existing model has been revealed in February 2014 as the NEX-6 heir alongside a 24.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, BIONZ X processor, and a new autofocus system capable of focusing in only 0.06 seconds.
More than one and a half years have passed since its introduction and this would be the right time for a replacement. As things stand, the A6100 will finally become official towards the end of November 2015 during a major product launch event.
A6100 specs list to include 28MP sensor with 4K recording
Beside the Sony A6100 announcement date, some of the camera’s specifications have been leaked on the web. The mirrorless camera will feature a 28-megapixel Exmor R APS-C-sized image sensor that will be capable of recording 4K movies.
Additionally, it will have the 4D autofocus technology introduced in the A77 II, which has not been much advertised during this camera’s launch. However, it played a big part in A68’s recent revealing, so it should receive a lot of attention during A6100’s unveiling, too.
The AF system will comprise 399 autofocus points that will deliver quick focusing, while providing accurate subject tracking even in low-light conditions.
Although it is being introduced in November, the mirrorless shooter will be released by the end of 2015. Either way, stay tuned to Camyx for the Sony A6100 announcement event!
