In an interview with DPR, Sony confirms a7s II successor. DPR spoke with Kenji Tanaka of Sony on a video chat. The discussion included the impact of COVID-19 on the business, the booming market for video, and the a7S II successor.
From the interview
We’ve received many requests, especially from professional video content creators, and I can confirm that a successor to the Alpha 7S II will be coming, later this summer. Right now we’re focused on the launch of the new camera, and it will be a complete redesign of the whole system, including the image sensor. Everything is new. We hope it will meet and exceed the expectations and requests of our customers. I’m very confident that our new model will meet their demands.
Tanaka continues to explain
The ‘S’ originally stood for ‘sensitivity’ but now I think it should stand for ‘supreme’ in terms of image quality, and expression. It comes from having really big pixels. I think that many professionals and high-end users will enjoy the new camera.
