While full-frame cameras are desired by most photographers, the fact of the matter is that full-frame cameras are expensive. For example, the Sony A7s which is a full-frame mirrorless camera is priced at $2,000-$2,300, making it a bit expensive for non-professionals. Even the Sony RX1 full-frame compact camera is priced at around $2,700.
That being said, could Sony be working on an affordable full-frame E-mount camera? Well according to Sony Alpha Rumors, the answer is yes, there is a possibility of that happening. As you might recall, about a week ago we reported that a possible new Sony mirrorless camera was listed by an Indonesian agency.
According to Sony Alpha Rumors’ sources, apparently that camera, the WW024382, is a cheap entry-level full-frame camera that is part of Sony E-mount lineup. Of course it remains to be seen if that is actually the case, but based on Sony’s previous naming schemes, the model number in the listing did seem to hint at a full-frame camera.
Take it with a grain of salt for now, but if a full-frame camera is what you’re after and you don’t want to break the bank, then perhaps this upcoming camera could be for you. In any case check back with us at a later date for the details, but in the meantime are photographers excited at the possibility of an affordable full-frame camera from Sony?
