As DCR\’s Allison Johnson, who covered the event, reported, \”Behind the new concept is a new APS sized sensor, named appropriately enough, the Exmor APS HD MOS sensor. It will outsize its Micro Four Thirds competitors and offer 1080p HD AVCHD video recording. Along with the new sensor, Sony has committed to developing three types of new compact lenses to match the small form factor of the new system.\” Read more at DigitalCameraReview, Sony launches ultra-compact interchangeable lens camera concept.
