Sony have revealed two very early prototype cameras at NAB. They are hybrid stills / video cameras from the pro A/V division in Japan. One is a DSLR style camera with what looks like a PL mount. Sony is also committed to developing a range of full frame cinema prime lenses.

Whatever comes out on the specs side, this exagonal prototype is really neat !

 

If the new mount on the DSLR is something  kind of "universal", that could be very interesting. 

 

Anyway, Sony is clearly showing they continue to push forward their pro-sumer/pro video line-up, that's the good news!

Looks like the Sony fzmount to me with adapters for their A and E mounts. The fzmount can be fount on their f5 and f55 as well..

This article implies that these new Sony camera are directly competing with the cinema EOS line.  Isn't that what the F5 and F55 are already doing?  I see the reason for a 4K DSLR from Sony, but I'm not sure where the  hexagonal camera falls in place with the F5, F55 and F65.  I guess we'll have to wait for the specs and price to find out.

If it gives 10bit colour, s-log, s35 crop, and is half the price of the 1dc I'm in!

Sony seem to love making announcements about announcements, show us a product with a time frame or go home.

Sony's 16-bit RAW codec on either of these cameras will be cool. The hexagonal design reminds me of Kineraw S35, perhaps they want to enter this market.

If theirs cameras can show up at the play ground, they have a chance. So far they can barely deliver some units. Very disapointing.

Don't think Arri or RED or Blackmagic have too much to worry about from either of these cameras.  A year or so away, probably quite expensive, probably a bit of a clumsy workflow.  Canon, on the other hand, is in trouble.  

 

Great to see a crowded marketplace driving innovation and prices, tho.
