Sony is teasing a new Alpha product announcement on January 26.


The catchphrase: ‘The one never seen’ certainly raises some eyebrows!

Are we going to be seeing the first consumer camera with a global shutter?

What do you think it will be? What would you like it to be? Or are you simply not fussed at all? :)

A9III is my guess based on recent rumors.
The catchphrase: ‘The one never seen’ is intriguing though!

If Canon is going to release an R1 this year then they will probably be trying to get the jump on them, that's also rumored to have a global shutter.

If this camera is a big step up on the a9 then it might be a new series all together or perhaps an a9R.

Just a few more days to speculate :)

Global Shutter: Image sensors with a global shutter allow all of the pixels to accumulate a charge with the exposure starting and ending at the same time. At the end of the exposure time the charge is read out simultaneously. In turn, the image has no motion blur on moving objects.

Which is very cool, if it works!

So Nokishita has confirmed the model name but nothing else.

α1 (ILCE-1)

So a new flagship camera most likely!

you think we'll see a new sensor? Like a curved sensor?

From what I've read a curved sensor would need new lenses, so probably not. A new sensor definitely I would imagine.
