With everyone and their mother trying to make the move to 4K right now, it was only a matter of time until reports of Sony coming out with a 4K DSLR style camera emerged. Since Canon released the C Cinema style cameras, we’re sure that companies like Sony have been looking at the success and now want to get into the game themselves. Sony Alpha Rumors is reporting that the company may be launching one sooner or later–which makes perfect sense since this year is also a Photokina year.
However, Sony may be announcing it a bit before NAB 2014–which means very soon. The camera is said to have an FZ mount; which an adaptable system that lets you put PL, A or E mount lenses on. Even further is that the camera may have 2 axis stabilization–which borrows from the technology in the Sony A99.
Recently, Sony hasn’t been making huge waves in the pro video scene. It’s been all about Canon and ARRI instead. Years ago though, everyone loved Sony’s offerings and this may be the company’s way of trying to push back at everyone else. One of the biggest complaints that videographers and editors have though is the company’s codec and the versatility of the files.
What we’re also wondering though is when 4K video may come to their regular DSLRs and mirrorless cameras.
