Sony A7000 Rumored to Feature 5-axis IBIS

More information have been leaked online for the Sony A7000. The high-end E-mount mirrorless camera with an APS-C image sensor is rumored to come with in-body 5-axis image stabilization technology.

According to sources at SonyAlphaRumors the rumored A7000 camera (name is still not clear yet) will include the 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization technology, which has been introduced with the Sony A7II full-frame camera.

The Sony A7000 APS-C E-mount camera is said to be positioned above the current A6000, meaning that it is a possible NEX-7 successor camera. The rumored 5-axis on sensor stabilization tech also makes the Sony A7000 become the first APS-C E-mount camera. We’ll see!
