Sony introduced this week the new a6500 mirrorless camera that shares the same unrivaled 4D FOCUS system as the a6300 camera. The new 4D focus system can lock focus on a subject in as little as 0.05 seconds, the world's fastest AF acquisition time. The camera also features 425 phase detection AF points that are densely positioned over nearly the entire image area – the world's highest number of AF points on any interchangeable lens camera. The new model can shoot images at up to 11 frames per second with continuous autofocus and exposure tracking and up to 8 frames per second in a live-view shooting mode that makes it easy to track fast moving subjects, as it combines all of the benefits of an electronic viewfinder with the immediacy of an optical viewfinder.

Sony today introduced their new flagship A-mount camera, the A99 II. The new A99 II camera is Sony's first full-frame camera to feature the acclaimed 4D Focus system, bringing a supreme level of AF performance to Sony's A-mount line-up. The Hybrid Phase Detection AF system is enabled by combining a precision 79-point dedicated phase detection AF sensor with 399 focal plane phase detection AF points to produce a 79 hybrid cross AF point array. In addition to its advanced autofocusing, the A99 II has been designed to allow for high resolution, continuous shooting at high frame rates. The back-illuminated full-frame 42.4MP(9) Exmor R CMOS sensor in the new a99 II model features a gapless-on-chip design that allows for fast readout of large volumes of data and maximizes light gathering ability.

All the inside details on Sony's stunning new 4K / Full-HD compact camcorder are answered in this Q&A style document. The Z150 is the world’s first professional camcorder to feature a 1.0 type stacked CMOS image sensor. This breakthrough in sensor integration delivers a 2x increase in read-out speed compared to a conventional 1.0 sensor for stunning 120fps slow motion in Full HD and spectacular 4K recording. Full pixel read-out helps realise the full potential of the big 1.0 type sensor - there's no need for pixel binning or line skipping which can result in moire effects.
