Pictures Leak Of New Sony NEX C3 Camera

25 Apr

Some rogue in the DP Review forums has posted pictures of the next entry in Sony’s NEX series, the C3. We just recently heard that the NEX-3 was being discontinued (though it still seems to be available) so perhaps this is its successor.

Rumored improvements are a improved shutter and sensor, as well as physical changes – but no 1080p yet. There’s also that cool new external flash, which one forum member insists will be back-compatible with other NEX cameras electronic gadgets. Sounds good to me. More pictures at Sony Alpha rumors. The leaker seems to have found an Alpha a35 too.

Sony Ericsson slaps Walkman logo on X8, renames it W8

22 Apr

Take one Xperia X8, add a dash of color, paint a “W” on it and, voilà, you have the first Walkman phone running Android — the W8 electronic gadgets. We’re not seeing it on the US Sony Ericsson site yet, but a quick visit to the company’s German page reveals the decidedly low-end specs:

a 3-inch, 320 x 480 touchscreen, a 600MHz processor, 168MB of RAM and Android 2.1. The W8 may not recapture the luster the Walkman brand enjoyed in its TPS-L2 heyday, but at least it’ll update your Twitter status. Gallery below.

Sony shoots out CineAlta F65 4K camera and PMW-TD300 3D camcorder at NAB

12 Apr

The current trend in the world of home theater may seem like 3D cinematography is all the hype these days, but Sony’s latest imager in its CineAlta family begs to differ. Unveiled at the 2011 NAB Show, this F65 mammoth camera electronic gadgets pack one beastly 20.4 megapixel, Super 35mm CMOS sensor — a huge leap from the F35’s 12.4 megapixel 1080p CCD. Aside from the obvious quantitative difference, what’s special about this new chip is that unlike the Bayer BG-GR subpixel matrix on conventional 4K sensors, here we have green pixels forming the 4K grid while an RB-BR matrix fills in the space, thus doubling the number of horizontal pixels to 8K for a finer 4K picture (see illustration after the break), as well as allowing better visual effects editing using the extra data. What’s more, this sensor is fast — not only can it capture up to 72fps on 4K, but these electronic gadgets can also crank up to a smooth 120fps on 2K. As for those seeking to squeeze out every bit of detail from their clips, don’t worry: the F65’s got you covered with a 16-bit RAW output (19Gbps) at 4K resolution, or it can be compressed to 5Gbps for the convenience of recording onto the new SR-R4 portable 4K recorder. Looks like Sony’s finally found a candidate that’ll put a lid on film stock, but then again, at the end of the day it’ll depend on the price tag when it comes out in Q3 this year.

Of course, Sony isn’t going to just ignore the 3D scene here. Also announced at NAB is the PMW-TD300, which will be the first professional 3D camcorder sporting a shoulder mount. Featuring a pair of Exmor 3CMOS sensors, hardcore cameramen will finally be able to go mobile with this new toy while filming 3D in 1080p. Not sure how the videos will turn out, though — we’re not keen on the idea of watching shaky and potentially nauseating 3D captured by someone running along the sideline. Anyhow, these electronic gadgets will be up for grabs in Autumn this year.

Sony CEO accidentally outs possible 8MP camera in iPhone 5

8 Apr

An inadvertent slip of the tongue by Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer could confirm rumors that Apple will use the company’s 8MP camera sensor in its upcoming (but allegedly delayed) iPhone 5 electronic gadgets.

Possible details about Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5 have emerged from an unlikely source: Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer.

While speaking with the Wall Street Journal‘s Walt Mossberg at a forum at New York City’s Carnegie Hall on Friday, Stringer made an off-handed comment that may indicate that the next-generation iPhone will come loaded with an 8MP camera — a significant boost from the iPhone 4′s 5MP camera.

The comment was made by the Sony CEO while he was talking about the one of the company’s plants Senai being damaged by the tsunami that hit Japan last month. So far, Apple has sourced mobile cameras from OmniVision electronic gadgets, which provided the 5MP camera for iPhone 4 and the 3.2MP camera for the 3GS. But if interpretations of Stringer’s comment are correct, it would indicate that Apple may start buying cameras from Sony.

“Our best sensor technology is built in one of the (tsunami) affected factories,” said Stringer (as paraphrased by 9to5Mac founder Seth Weintraub, who caught the quote). “Those go to Apple for their iPhones…or iPads. Isn’t that something? They buy our best sensors from us?”

According to Electronista, interpretations that Sony is taking over Apple’s camera production are corroborated by a rumors in February that Sony was stepping in because OmniVision couldn’t have an 8MP camera sensor ready in time for Apple’s launch date. Also, Sony’s sensor, which is currently used in its Xperia Neo handset, would meet Apple’s demands of quality over megapixel quantity with its low-light, low-noise capabilities.

As 9to5Mac points out, The Street reported in April 2010 that Apple would adopt Sony’s 8MP camera for the iPhone 5. This was included in the same report that correctly predicted a 5MP camer for the iPhone 4 electronic gadgets.

Damages to Sony’s Sendai plant — which is located in one of the areas hardest hit by the devastating earthquake and resulting tsunami — could also explain why Apple is said not to be debuting the iPhone 5 during its WWDC on June 6, which has been the release event for Apple’s latest iPhone since its release of the iPhone 3G in 2008.
