Sony launch 28th July ....
#1
Sony to launch the A7SIII on the 28th of July .......

Video centric 12 Mps ML camera ...... 4K no 8K (obviously) .... Sony claim no overheating in video ......

 For those of us who are OVF stalwarts ....... the A7SIII will have a 

......... 9.4 million dot EVF .......

........ maybe that will test our faithfulness to the DSLR? ....... maybe not!

A 12 MP sensor ....... or ....... has a sensor of 12MPs ...... both are correct !

MPs is not correct, actually. Like Kilobyte has KB as unit symbol, for Megapixel it is MP. So even if it is more than 1 megapixel, it is still just MP. And it is 230V, not 230Vs. And a marathon is 42.195 km, not 42.195 kms.

So what? 
Rant!!

I speak traditional English before such technical terms as megapixels existed .... 
..... now we are supposed to say one euro  ...... two euros ..... three euro ...... four euro .... a nonsense in my view.
...... Why?  because some Euro bureau ordained it as such! ....... so I won't ...... I say ten euros ..... and bugger them!

BTW.   I also refuse to say "an hotel" ...... Why? ...... they say it's because of French "un hôtel" ...... but hotel in french is not ........aspirated...... and is pronounced "otel" .......it is aspirated in English (if you don't drop your aitches) so IMHO it should be "a hotel" ........ 95% of English say " I stayed at a hotel " .........  Cockneys would say I stayed at "an otel"

 BTW.  We used to say ......... "Bert is a small/short man" ...... now the powers that be insist that we say ..... "Bert is vertically challenged" ..

before it was a description ...... now he is under attack !! ..... I mean really ??
 
 Do you really expect to lay down my arms without a fight??  Smile

You can of course say, "I biked 10 kilometers". Or, that you have an apple that weighs 216 grams. But if you write the unit, do it right. So, 12MP, 10km, 216 g, 1024KB (1MB). And Bert is also terribly fat. And bald.

  Is it because the Sont A7SIII has a 9.4 million dot EVF and doesn't overheat which has promoted all this??

BTW you don't start a sentence with And !!
