New Sony A9 High End E-mount Camera Rumor: 20fps, Fast AF, Low MP, Price $6000

Yesterday we reported that Sony already registered a new camera with the code name “WW361847”, and this new camera is expected to be the upcoming Sony A9 or A7III E-mount mirrorless camera.

The previous rumor said the upcoming Sony A9 (name is NOT confirmed yet) high end E-mount mirrorless camera will NOT have such a high megapixel (72MP), and this camera will feature fast auto focus, high ISO sensitivity and high-speed continuous shooting. We also said Sony will release several different version of this new high end E-mount camera line. Today SAR received a new rumored specs list of the upcoming Sony high-end E-mount mirrorless camera, take a look:

1.The camera under development seems to have 2 models.
One is high-resolution model around 70MP, and the other is super high-performance AF, super high speed continuous shooting, and super high ISO sensitivity model.

2.The first model to be released will be the low rez and usper high-perofrmance AF camera

3.I don’t know whether both models are released like α7, 7R or A9.

4.Many professional photographers introduce Emount, and Sony receives many requests from professional photographers through PRO support. High-end Emount camera (probably α9) will become the camera in response to the demand of professional photographers.

5.The camera with lower resolution sensor is very fast and has in its prototype stage shoots around 20 fps

6.Estimated price range is $6,000
