Sony Rumored to be Working on a Full Frame Mirrorless NEX Camera


Mirrorless cameras are designed to offer DSLR-esque sensors inside smaller form-factor bodies, but so far the only company offering full frame mirrorless cameras has been Leica with its M line of rangefinders. That may soon change. sonyalpharumors is reporting with certainty that Sony is working on putting a full frame sensor in a NEX mirrorless camera.

They write,

I just learned via (many) trusted sources that the third revolution from Sony is about to happen. After the SLT and NEX introductions (first two revolutions) Sony is about to change the photographic and video industry with the third revolution… a new Full Frame NEX system!

Sporting APS-C-sized sensors, Sony NEX cameras already boast some of the largest sensors found in mirrorless cameras. Leading the charge into full frame would certainly shake up the market and force other manufacturers to either jump aboard or fall behind.
