Sony’s new patent for inter-lens shutter may be prepared for medium format models
Recently, Sony has exposed its latest patent for mirror shutter on the patent website.
In fact, the inter-lens shutter has long been used in Sony RX1 series digital cameras, but in this patent, Sony describes that the new shutter mechanism is developed for equipment with interchangeable lenses.
Therefore, some people speculate that Sony’s announcement of this patent at this time is very likely to pave the way for the upcoming new “Silent” series of lenses for E-mount cameras. There are also opinions that the patent may also be Sony’s technological precipitation for future medium-format professional cameras.
The main advantages of the inter-lens shutter are 1) it can synchronize with the flash very well at the shutter speed within the limited value range, 2) the inter-lens shutter is smaller in size than the traditional focal plane shutter, and it works well. 3) When shooting moving objects, it will not cause distortion of the subject.
and its shortcomings are mainly concentrated in the inability to achieve the same high shutter speed as the traditional shutter, which will have certain restrictions on the camera focal length and aperture.
I don’t know if you are looking forward to Sony’s new silent lenses or more medium format cameras?
