qx1_1

You get a leak! And you get a leak! Everybody gets a leak!

It looks like somebody (or a few people) in the know at Sony were feeling very generous this morning because we woke up to not one, but two separate sources of leaked photos showing a very exciting new product from Sony: the next QX, smartphone-mounted ‘lens camera.’

And it’s exciting because, in this case, the term ‘lens camera’ doesn’t really work anymore. This isn’t a whole camera contained in a lens… it’s more of a smartphone-attachable E-Mount that will let you swap out lenses! Read more…

Earlier this week we shared the reliable rumor that Zeiss was about to lift the veil on a new ‘Loxia’ lens lineup designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras — at this point limited to the Sony a7, a7r and a7s.

You know what they say: see a need, fill a need. Or, in the case of Sony’s upcoming perfume bottle-shaped selfie camera, “see a fad, create a product.” We assume that’s written somewhere in the internal memo that first gave life to the camera you see above, a seemingly very real and definitely very strange camera that trusted sources tell Sony Alpha Rumors will be one of the first to feature Sony’s revolutionary curved sensor.

Mirrorless Sports Photography: Capturing the Tour de France with the Sony a6000

tour_1

I was under the spell of mirrorless ILCs from their birth in 2009 when Panasonic and Olympus literally tore up the rule book and started from scratch. Their debut models, the G1 and EP1, may have been a little rough around the edges, but I was immediately smitten: these were the future of cameras, at least as far as I was concerned.

With each passing week it seems as though a new piece of information is coming out about Sony’s latest curved sensor technology. First it was the rumor, then the specs for a 2/3” sensor, then the first image captured with said sensor.
