This week Sony has made clear that they’re not about to let the leaksters and the rumor-mongers have their way, showing off the Sony A7S release and pricing information for the first time. While it should be made clear that we don’t expect Sony is reacting to the rumors going around on the Sony A7S, their pricing does put the machine in a much more favorable - and affordable - light than camera-hungry readers expected.
Sony's new RX100M3 can't stop leaking, and hot on the heels of the full spec list come images showing the camera and its unusual pop-up viewfinder. The compact 20.1-megapixel shooter manages to squeeze an electronic viewfinder (EVF) into its pocketable body, with a 1.4m dot resolution for those times you don't want to use the 3-inch adjustable display.
Sony's 4K Ultra HD Media Player has been priced up, for 4K TV owners hoping for some on-demand ultra-high-definition content to actually make the most of their expensive sets. The box, which is expected to ship in July, supports both Sony's own Video Unlimited 4K service, which has over 200 Sony Pictures films, along with around 50 TV shows, all in 4K, as well as Netflix's 4K streaming.
Sony has acquired the movie rights to a book by Glenn Greenwald, detailing the Edward Snowden NSA leaks. Greenwald’s book centers around meeting Snowden in a Hong Kong hotel, and the ensuing backlash from the leaked information.
Sony has taken a scalpel to the a7, chopping open its full-frame mirrorless camera to show off what's going on inside the unusual shooter. The video - which also shows the results of cutting a Vario-Tessar FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS lens in half like a sub - gives an inkling of just how crammed the camera's internals are.
The upcoming E3 event next month will encompass a variety of conferences, including one from Sony, the details of which have reportedly been leaked in great detail to the folks at DualShockers. There are game details galore, and a claim that price drops for the PlayStation 3 and Vita will supposedly be revealed at the event.
