Rumor: Photos and Full Specs for the Sony a3500 Leaked


Well that was quick… only seven months after the E-Mount a3000 made its debut, it looks like Sony already has a followup ready to release. And thank to sonyalpharumors we get to look at a few product shots of the camera and what looks to be a full official list of specs.

We won’t cover everything here, for a full list of specs and more pictures you can visit SAR, but the TL;DR is that the differences are extremely minor. A new 18-50mm f/4.0-5.6 Sony lens and better battery life are the only differences we could spot (let us know in the comments if we missed something). Other than that, it looks like the biggest difference between the a3000 and a3500 will be the name badge.

Not that that’s a bad thing. If you’ve had your eye on the a3000 you’ll probably be able to get one cheap just as soon as Sony makes the announcement official.

As always, take the specs and pictures with a grain of salt. SAR seems very confident of the veracity of this information, but you never know with rumors. Keep checking back and we’ll be sure to update you if and when this camera makes its official debut.

    So, still the same sh** viewfinder?

    Have you ever even used Sony’s EVF?

    The A3000 has a very bad EVF. It’s not even 1M dots.

  • Mike Burchard

    The a3000/a3500 doesn’t feature the fantastic EVF used in the higher-end e-mount cameras… SLRian had it right: in this camera, it’s a sh** EVF.

  • SeoulFood

    Yeah, but you can’t expect too much from a $300 ILC though. Surprised it even comes with a viewfinder.

  • Ramayana

    Crap viewfinder is still better than no viewfinder, to me. I prefer this and its form factor to the a5000, so choice is good.

    I don’t know why critics are giving the a 300 so much slack it is a beginner camera and for the price it is very ideal plus the image quality is amazing
