The rumor mill has been buzzing with excitement over Sony’s rumored upcoming camera model, the “Sony a6700“. While there is no guarantee that this information is 100% accurate, it is worth taking a look at what we know so far.
According to industry insiders, Sony is gearing up to announce a number of new camera models in the coming months. First on the docket is the successor to the popular “ZV1” camera, which is set to be unveiled by the end of May. However, the real excitement surrounds a rumored “high-end APS-C camera” that is expected to be announced in August.
If the rumors are to be believed, the “Sony a6700” will be a powerhouse of a camera, boasting a 26-megapixel sensor and in-body image stabilization (IBIS) with a 7-step effect. It will also be equipped with the same “AI processor” as the “ZV-E1“, which is sure to delight fans of Sony’s cutting-edge technology. Additionally, the camera is expected to feature 4K120p 1.19 crop video capabilities and a newly designed body with the EVF placed on the left side and the wheel scroll placed on the front under the shutter button. The grip has also been redesigned for a more ergonomic feel, making it easier to handle during long shoots.
