Sony Alpha Rumors has leaked details of a new and rather innovative attachment for Sony A7-series cameras. A joint collaboration by Chinese brands TILTA and Zhiyong Technology Co. Ltd, the device resembles a conventional L-bracket, albeit one with an ergonomic grip on the vertical section. But this isn't just a simple grip, as it houses a 512GB M.2 SSD.

The camera therefore thinks it's recording to a regular Type A card, yet the data gets sent to the SSD.
