Sony Could Have An Entry-Level Full Frame Mirrorless Camera In The Works

Want to get a full frame mirrorless camera? Unfortunately, full frame mirrorless cameras aren’t exactly cheap and Sony’s A7 is probably the cheapest you can expect from the company. However, that might not necessarily be the case in the future, at least according to Sony Alpha Rumors.

The publication is claiming that come September, Sony is expected to announce an entry-level full frame mirrorless camera that will be part of its mirrorless lineup. The naming of this camera is unclear, but it has been speculated to be called either the A5 or the A6, which kind of makes sense given that Sony’s mirrorless lineup consists of the A7 and A9 series.

Now, these aren’t actually new TVs and have been announced before, but according to Sony, these are the TVs that you should consider if you want to get the most out of your PS5 gaming experience. This includes the X900H 4K HDR Full Array LED and Z8H 8K HDR Full Array LED models.

So what about these TV models that makes them better suited for the PS5? According to Sony, “’Ready for PlayStation 5′ TV models also boast Game Mode, which allows users to automatically play games on the PS5 with low latency. Thanks to Game Mode, users can wake both the TV and PS5 at once with the DualSense wireless controller, and also seamlessly control their PS5 using just the TV remote.”

Sony Might Limit Ps5 Orders To One Per Household

Sony Might Limit PS5 Orders To One Per Household

The Sony PS5 is expected to be released later this year. Given the popularity of the PlayStation series in general, we expect that there will most likely be a rush of gamers eager to place their orders. In order to ensure that gamers will be able to purchase the console, it seems that Sony could be employing a preventive measure that will limit one console purchase per household.

This is according to a post on Reddit in which it details the backend code for PlayStation Direct where it suggests that only one household may order one PS5 at a time. Presumably this is done to prevent people from purchasing multiple units at once in order to resell them at higher prices due to potential limited supply at the start.

Bored at home during the pandemic lockdown?

The PS5 is expected to be released this year and instead of producing 5-6 million units, which is what some analysts have predicted, the reports are claiming that Sony might produce several million more where it could result in an initial production reaching as many as 9 to 10 million units of the PS5 console.

This Is How Sony Could Handle Backwards Compatibility On The PS5

When it comes to backwards compatibility on consoles, it’s safe to say that Microsoft has done a much better job compared to Sony. For instance, the PS4 supports backwards compatibility with PS3 games, but that’s pretty much it, whereas the Xbox One supports the original Xbox and Xbox 360 games.

However, in a tweet by @Renak_schedule, they have discovered what appears to be a patent by Sony in which the company is looking at an idea on how to make its consoles more backwards compatible with older consoles, like the PS4, PS3, PS2, and the original PlayStation through the use of cloud gaming.

Canon Takes The Fight To Sony With Its New EOS R6 Camera

When it comes to full frame mirrorless cameras, it’s hard to deny that Sony has pretty much the market cornered. However, in the past few years, we’ve started to see more efforts from other camera makers looking to challenge Sony’s position on the throne, and it looks like Canon might have a potential camera that could rival Sony.

The company has officially announced its latest full frame mirrorless camera in the form of the Canon EOS R6. The camera will come with a 20.1MP full-frame CMOS sensor and DIGIC X image processor, and if you’re wondering why this sounds familiar, it is because this is the same sensor used in Canon’s flagship EOS-1D X Mark III DSLR camera, so you should be able to expect similar performance, but in a smaller package.
