The successor to the Sony Alpha 7S II is coming this summer - what innovations will it bring? Although the camera hasn&t been introduced yet, rumors about possible specifications are growing day by day. Sony had already hinted that they had implemented features like 4K/60p and 10-bit 4:2:2, and pretty much everything should be new.
If you believe relevant sites like AlphaRumors, the camera seems to offer not only 4Kp60, but even 4K frame rates up to 120fps - externally via HDMI even in RAW. A new sensor with effective 12MP should allow a correspondingly fast readout. There is talk of a 600 Mbps data rate and a base ISO 160 in S-Log3. Dual ISO is supposedly not supposed to exist. A dynamic range of 15 f-stops is supposed to be specified by Sony for the camera.
The electronic viewfinder is said to be extremely high resolution with 9.44 million pixels (QXGA), the display is said to be as flexible as on the new ZV-1. The camera is apparently cooled passively, and heat problems like on the recently introduced Canon R5 / R6 are said to be non-existent (with a 12MP sensor, oversampling would not be an issue anyway).
According to the rumors page, the new Sony camera will be announced at the end of July and delivered from mid August. Only then there will be complete certainty about the specs, but one thing is for sure: it will be a pretty exciting late summer in terms of camera technology.
