Spoiler alert: spring Sony A7R V review (opens in new tab) is here
But… we’re 10 minutes away from launch!
The live chat just goes down the path of silliness.
“the new all old very new design of old design of flawless turn … design of so, new!”
Lots of wild guesses (and dumb guesses) in the video chat and comments section about what this announcement will be.
Aside from silly suggestions like a new Sony A1, a lot of people are really asking about a new APS-C body. It would be really cool to see an A7000 at some point…
Early rumblings are that the Sony A7R V will cost £3,999 in the UK, which is roughly $4,630 / AU$7,140. What do you think, does that sound fair?
Another last-minute photo has leaked (opens in new tab) on Sony Alpha Rumors, which shows what is claimed to be the mode dial of the Sony A7R V. From this, the website concludes that the new camera has the same controls as the Sony A7 IV (opens in new tab) and that the C1 button sits higher to accommodate what is said to be a new 4-axis tilt/flip display (similar to the Panasonic S1H (opens in new tab)).
It’s Sony Alpha launch day!
In the UK where I’m writing from, it’s launch day for the new Sony Alpha camera!
Exciting times. I’m off to London soon for the live launch event, which means we’ll get hands-on with the camera and the chance to take test shots (and video)!
Potential leaked image of Sony A7R V
This image was shared by Sony Alpha Rumors (opens in new tab) a few days ago, and it’s apparently a leaked image of the Sony A7R V. Key findings? Curious eyes may notice that the 4K and Steady Shot markings found on the top of the AR IV are gone.
Some claim they can see a fully articulating screen from the image, but I’m not so sure that’s not wishful thinking!
This new camera launch ties in with Sony’s Creative Space event in New York on October 27-28, which is free to attend if you register in advance (opens in new tab).
Creative Space 2022 includes onstage talks, speakers and photo walks around NYC, and is designed for photographers and creatives to join Sony’s community of visual creators live and in person.
“Some of the biggest names in photography, video and film will share their knowledge and creativity directly with you. Make yourself known to a new audience and speak one-on-one with leading experts in imaging technology.”
