Sony has today announced their new flagship mirrorless camera, the Sony A9 II. The rumours of a 36-megapixel sensor were wrong, although it still looks like a nice upgrade over the original Sony A9. While some of the specs look quite similar, Sony says many features have been upgraded to “meet the needs fo professionals”.
It looks like Sony might finally be getting ready to announce an A7S III. Or, possibly an A9 II. Nokishita posted up a list of camera models and their respective internal code numbers for a whole bunch of different camera manufacturers. In amongst them was “WW942051”, which doesn’t match up to any existing known Sony mirrorless camera.
According to Sony Alpha Rumours, their sources have confirmed that this new model, WW942015, is going to be a full-frame camera. A new “BIG ONE” camera, and it will have the same WiFi capabilities as the recently announced Sony A7R IV. Beyond that, nothing else has been released.
With the flood of new mirrorless cameras on the market offering 10-bit video, and those expected in the new year, it looks like Sony is taking no prisoners. Sony Alpha Rumors is reporting that Sony is about to announce two 36-megapixel and 60-megapixel sensors capable of shooting 8K video at up to 6o frames per second. And they may even offer 16-bit RAW stills.
