I found on Slashcam a very interesting rumor about an upcoming VDLR camera from SONY.

The full sensor VDSL concept with interchangeable lenses (code-named "Alpha 1000") is believed to be released no later then 2011 and it will merge photo and video capabilities "as never before"?!

I really hope they going to
employ Sony’s new “Exmor R” back illuminated CMOS sensor technology to improve shooting in low-light scenarios, enhancing image clarity and drastically reducing grain. (-> read more about it here)

2011 is still far away, I would be very surprised if we would not have a full sensor vdslr with 24/25 fps and full resolution hdmi output anyway on the market at that time.


Other Sony rumors (Sony 2010 roadmap):

  • -CES, Las Vegas, January 7-10 2010: Sony A950 to be announced (32 MP sensor, no video, high ISO).
  • -600mm lens to be announced between January and April.
  • -NAB, Las Vegas, April 10-15: Sony A1000 (DSLR video camera hybrid, similar to RED).
  • -A cheap Sony A150 without built-in AF motor is expected.
  • -Fotokina, September 8-10: Sony A820 (32 MP sensor, smaller body, SD card, video mode, built-in flash, simplified viewfinder).

So already April 2010 might be release date for A1000 with no less then 32 MP sensor.
