Whereas full-frame is the place Sony has centered its efforts currently, the CineAlta model has been used since 1999. In that point, the corporate has included a variety of cameras with a wide range of sensor sizes.

For instance, earlier than the Venice digicam was introduced in 2017, Sony beforehand up to date the CineAlta line with the F5 and F55 which launched in 2012. These programs used a Super35 CMOS sensor and have been able to taking pictures at 4K and 2K and as much as 60 and 240 frames per second, respectively.

The Venice boosted the sensor measurement to full-frame however capped body charges at 60p in 5K and 30p in 6K.

In a publish on X, previously Twitter, the corporate shared a brief 15-second video that reveals a couple of photographs that have been presumably captured by the brand new digicam, the phrases “a brand new section,” the letter “G,” a diagram of a lens mount, and an announcement date.

Lumix USA printed the identical teaser:

Of notice, the diagram of the lens mount doesn’t seem like an L-mount, because the digital connection pins proven are under the sensor; they’re above the sensor on L-mount. That association is per Micro 4 Thirds, nonetheless. Using the phrase “section” and the looks of this mount would possibly sign the addition of section detection autofocus onto a Panasonic Micro 4 Thirds digicam, which might be a primary for the corporate. That is, in fact, solely hypothesis.
