Sony shows off lens-swap compact

Alpha range addition to sport DSLR-style sensor

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Sony will release its answer to the likes of the Olympus Pen and Panasonic GF1: a premium compact camera with interchangeable lenses.

Right now, Sony isn't saying much more than that. It has said the "ultra-compact" will be part of its Alpha range and sport an APS-size image sensor for "DSLR picture quality".

It will shoot video in the AVCHD format.

Sony is showing off what it calls a "concept" version of the camera at the Photo Marketing Association (PMA) show taking place this week in Anaheim, California.

At the prototype stage

The fact the prototype is labelled a 'concept' suggests it's a very early version and not necessarily what the final model will look like.

Sony committed itself only to release the compact Alpha sometime this year. ®
