Just learned from sonyalpharumor site that the successor of A700 would be announced on this Sunday (the first day of PMA 2010) and it would be equipped with video capabilities which would blow away any presently existing video on Canikon bodies. If it is true they gonna post the exact model number (A7XX) and specification in next 24 hours. I am really feeling excited about it. I have been closely watching their rumors for last couple of months and found that they never went wrong for rumors marked as SR4/SR5. Anyway I believe if it is true then definitely there gonna be AF in video mode. Now the question is....will it be a pellicle mirror or normal mirror? I would be happier if Sony improves its JPEG engine in the A7XX as well as improvement in certain other areas. It must be a weather and dust proof, inbuilt GPS (for fancy users), WIFI transmitter (For me
), off course at least 7-8 FPs with AF working, not more than 15 megapixel, a whole improvement in noise reduction (otherwise Sony has to face bad reviews), mirror lock up etc etc. I do not want to see several same models with different megapixel or changing certain features like A230/330/380 or A500/500. What I want a solid model which would do a very good business.
