Sony HXC-FB80 Camcorder Announced for NAB 2017, No Sony a7S III

Sony officially announced the new entry-level full HD camera system – Sony HXC-FB80 Camcorder and HXCU-FB80 camera control unit (CCU) – for 2017 NAB Show in New York City. This Sony HXC-FB80 Camcorder is the “Exciting New Camera”, really disappointing!

Sony will have another product announcement on October 25-26 at 2017 PhotoPlus show. So, which camera is coming?

Sony already registered two new cameras with the code name “WW158299″ (probably Sony RX100 VI) and “WW940439″ (probably Sony a7S III or a9S).

Maybe Sony will bring us a big surprise, unveiling the Sony RX100 VI camera together with the Sony a7S III.
