According to the tech specs on Sony Rumors that were found on Chinese social media site Weibo, the A7000 will have an upgraded sensor of 32MP, which is an increase from 24MP in the A6000. The ISO is increased from100-25,600 in the older model to an ISO of 64-640,000 and 4K video shooting, up from 1080p in the A6000.
Here’s what Sony Rumors is reporting:
- 32MP Exmor RS APS CMOS with DRAM
- New Ultra Fast LSI
- Blackout-free Shooting
- New BIONZ X
- 925-point PDAF, 60fps AE/AF
- 10fps/16Bit Mechanical Shutter
- 20fps/14Bit Electronic Shutter
- 30fps/12Bit AE-L/AF-C E.S.

- 4K/60p 10Bit Super35mm Video
- 4K/24p 10Bit 2.4:1 WDR Movie

Comparing this to the Sony A6000 and the Sony A6500 and there’s an upgraded sensor (32MP, from 24MP), increased ISO (ISO 64-64000, compared to 100-25600) and 4K shooting, up from 1080p (this was something found in the A6500 as well).
When is the SONY CES 2019 media event online?
You will be able to watch it from Sony’s official CES press event website.
The Sony A6000 is still one of the best cameras around (and it’s the price is quite appealing) and these new specs will surely put Sony at the top of its game with another hit on its hands.
