According to SAR, Sony is now working on a 8K camera with the design of Sony A99. The source said this 8K camera will be released as early as 2016.
Yesterday, Sony also introduced a new CMOS sensor, calling it the highest sensitivity sensor of its kind. Developed for automotive use, the new chip can capture color images in light conditions down to 0.005 lux. The sensor is 1/3-inch type with 1.27 effective megapixels, and supports a Wide Dynamic Range system that uses extended exposure times rather than using multiple exposures.
