Beware of rumors surfacing a few days after Canon announced a new camera. They usually…
Sony is teasing a new camera, “The One Never Seen”. More will be revealed on January 26, 2021. It could be the Sony a9 III.
For the time being it’s not known what camera Sony is going to announce, though Sony Alpha Rumors speculates it might be the Sony a9 III. The rumored specifications for the a9 III:
- Sony will launch a new High End camera in Q1 2021.
- It will be named as an A9x series camera and not A7x (not sure if it’s “A9s” or “A9III”)
- It has a new ~50 megapixel sensor
- 8k30p video confirmed with no overheating. It’s still an “infant” 8k mode…meaning it’s not 8k60 which would be crazy and there will be limitations in the quality you can record internally.
- Other specs similar to A7sIII (EVF, autofocus, and so forth)
- At least $1,500 more expensive than the Canon EOS R5 (but price hasn’t be finalized yet). Expect something like $4,999.
