Sony new camera specs revealed

Sony has four new cameras in the pipeline and their specifications have leaked onto the web. The four cameras are:
  1. APS-C A77 (24.3MP CMOS DSLR)
  2. APS-C A65 (Same MP but lacking moisture and dust-proofing of the A77)
  3. NEX-5N (16.1MP sensor, same as NEX-3)
  4. NEX-7 (24.3MP sensor as in A77 and A65)
Its expected that Sony will make an official announcement later this month. However, the revelations include some interesting details that will interest many photographers, especially those whoa re in the market for an upgrade and not tied to any of Sony's competitors.

The A77, for instance, is rumoured to offer 12 fps and a 1/8000 sec shutter speed. It will also come with a 3 million dot OLED viewfinder, have built-in GPS and multi-frame noise reduction.

The A65 will have a similar spec but without the dust and moisture-proofing of the A77. It will have the same 24.3MP Exmoor HD CMOS sensor and 19 point AF system, but only 3 cross-type sensors compared to the A77's 11. Both cameras will come with a tilting LCD.

As for the NEX-7, it will also come with a 3 million dot OLED viewfinder, as well as the 24.3MP CMOS sensor. The NEX-5 retains the 16.1MP sensor of the NEX-3. Both, however, will have a 10 fps AF and a 1920 x 1080 60p/60/25p AVCHD video recording capability.
