Sony 31MP APS-C sensor with GLOBAL SHUTTER might be coming to A6700

Comment on the forum

Sony has been listening to the feedback surrounding the A6300 and A6500, which had quite a severe rolling shutter (30ms+) in 4K.

Sony A7S – does it have Super 35mm 4K mode too?

Sony A7S APS-C mode

One of the enigmas emerging from the A7S is whether you can shoot 4K in APS-C crop mode as well. APS-C is Super 35mm in cinema language.

Sony’s information (above) implies that is the case with “both resolutions available at both full frame and APS-C size”.
