“Leaked” Sony A7R V photograph reveals a really completely different prime button design to Sony’s different mirrorless cameras


The Sony A7R V discuss has been hotting up a bit recently. It’s not shocking on condition that an announcement for Sony’s new high-resolution digicam is anticipated to return in just a little over two weeks on October twenty sixth earlier than an official Sony Artistic House occasion begins in New York on the twenty seventh and twenty eighth. Already, although, we’d have our first glimpse at what the digicam seems like. Perhaps. I’m not satisfied it’s legit.

It was despatched to Picture Rumors by a reader and reveals a prime digicam bearing the A7R V mark and reveals a considerably completely different structure to just about each different Sony mirrorless digicam. Most notably, the mode dial appears to have moved over to the left aspect of the digicam. It marks a notable shift in route for Sony, with the A7R collection including the document button of the A7 IV and A7S III whereas holding each of the A7R IV’s customized perform buttons on prime.

Once you see the picture of the alleged A7R V in opposition to the identical view of the Sony A7 IV, A7R IV and A7S III, the distinction is sort of noticeable. It’s a logical option to make if Sony desires to maintain each of the perform buttons discovered on the A7R IV close to the photographer’s set off finger in addition to add the video begin/cease document button discovered on the A7 IV and A7S III. However is it actual?

Till we see extra photographs of the digicam, it’s just about not possible to say however I’m leaning in the direction of in all probability not. Trying on the mode dials of the three cameras that exist already within the photographs above, their mode dials all look barely completely different to one another. They’ve completely different modes printed on them, they’re at completely different angles and so they have completely different lighting, proven by subtlety completely different highlights.

The mode dial on the alleged A7R V leaked photograph seems equivalent to that of the one within the official top-view photograph for the A7S III – as does the publicity compensation dial on the correct. The rear left aspect of the digicam additionally seems equivalent to the A7R IV and never the newer design of the A7 IV and A7S III.


I suppose solely time will inform!
