Russian website photar.ru has made a exclusive interview with Sony Managers. They told us that Sony a7S III is still not ready due to some tech reasons, and we can also expect the Sony a6500 successor (a7000) to be announced in near future.
Translated from Photar.ru:
In order for this camera to become as popular and breakthrough as the A7S and A7SII, serious fundamental improvements must be added to it. My personal opinion is that not all technologies are ready for this. What can be improved in comparison with A7SII?
You can improve the resolution and video detail. Develop 4K format or go to the next level.
This story requires the transfer of a huge amount of information – you need to take into account the power of the processor, and the capabilities of memory cards – you can make a camera that allows you to record 8K, but how to save this video? Either some devices fence around the camera as external invaders, or allow the camera to record inside. And I think that first of all videographers need exactly the maximum compactness and convenience.Now technologies of media and memory cards are developing – in the near future we will see certain breakthroughs both in speed and volume.
From this we can assume that there will be a further development of the A6500 line.
