Sony just announced a real nice mirror less digital camera with interchangeable lenses. Best thing is it is a full frame sensor camera with a 36 megapixel sensor. I want a powerhouse in a small package and it is true that dynamite comes in small packages. This will turn the DSLR world on its head. I will be able to use the A-mount lenses and utilize the auto focus functions and I can also put on hundreds of older good glass for manual work. They will offer 3 new lenses from the beginning but I purchased it with only two adaptors to allow me to use my existing glass. Going to pick up some rigging from Jag35 so I can do a few things I was unable to do in the past. Or at least make it easier. It will be on par with all the major Full Frame DSLR cameras including the Blackmagic Cinema camera and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera. It will be a dynamite camera. I am stoked at being able to purchase it and its going to be perfect. I will be able to make a small but very functional package for taking on the road for doing some interviews of guys with electric car builds. It is something that is needed and since most are not doing it themselves I will provide that needed information. Part time of course and all on my dime.
The camera will do uncompressed raw as well as a few other codecs if you want and I can couple it to my Blackmagic Hyperdeck Shuttle 2 for a whopping 480 gigs of storage and either uncompressed or Apple Prores 422 HQ codec from the Shuttle. Photos are raw or jpg. I plan on all raw photos and uncompressed or Apple Prores 422 HQ.
I chose this one over either the Blackmagic Cinema or Pocket Cinema camera and this is a full frame sensor which neither of the Blackmagic cameras provide. I can utilize the entire industry of 35mm glass that is for a full frame size sensor and utilize many and still have autofocus functionality. Many will be plain manual but that is good as well. This is one kick ass camera. Should have it in my hands by the end of November and I will do a full review.
