Sony’s 2015 UHD 4K TV lineup: Android TV, ridiculously thin

Sony has just unveiled another team of Ultra HD Smart TVs, but this time the focus isn't on curves like its rivals in the industry. Sony's 2015 4K lineup is somewhat a bit more traditional but still a bit groundbreaking. For one, they are one of the few Smart TVs that have started bearing Android TV inside, finally making the ancient dream of "Google TVs" finally come true. And for another, at least two of them are so thin that they are thinner than the thinnest smartphone.

Vizio takes 4K TV down to $600, aiming for middle-class USA

Vizio takes 4K TV down to $600, aiming for middle-class USA

The last time we spoke about "affordable" 4K TVs, Vizio was the brand we were speaking about. That was back in September of 2014, and the word "affordable" was tossed around rather willy-nilly. At $999, a television isn't exactly the sort of equipment the average middle-class citizen is going to be picking up more than once every few years. Fast forward to April 2015 and Vizio's newest stab at the market is a 4K TV with a price just 60% of that which they presented a half a year ago.

Sony's line of 4K Ultra HDTV's are designed to provide incredible resolution, but 4K video offerings are still slim pickings.

Canon XC10 ‘hybrid’ 4k camera features 1″ sensor

Canon XC10 ‘hybrid’ 4k camera features 1″ sensor

Canon has taken the wraps off its new Canon XC10, a hybrid-like camera that resembles a DSLR, but that is able to shoot high-quality 4k video footage akin to what you'd get with a dedicated camcorder with accessories to aid. This gives photographers with a videographer slant the best of both worlds, and does so in a relatively compact and sleek body. Best of all, the XC10 features a 1-inch sensor, providing better image quality than what you'd get from a comparable camera sporting a smaller image sensor.

So, why isn't it clamoring to be the one of the first set-top boxes for the cable-cutting crowd to offer 4K video capability, especially if the A8 chip running the latest generation of iPhones is reputed to be capable of 4K?

Mirrorless Nikon 1 J5: high-speed, short lag, 4K videos

Nikon's DSLR cameras might be getting some tough competition and, quite amusingly, they will be coming from withing Nikon's own ranks.
