JVC Micro Four Thirds camera brings its own support crew

When one hears of cameras, especially digital ones, we usually think of a single slab or contraption that we can take along with us for a ride. The new JVC GW-SP100E 4KCAM, however, is anything but portable. Or rather it is, at least in some ways. Instead of a single camera body, this is actually a full system, composed of a remote camera head, its own separate recording and playback unit, and a remote control to, well, control it all from a safe distance.

Sony betting big on gaming and image sensors for next 3 years

Given their success in selling the PlayStation 4 and surrounding technologies, Sony is ready to go big with their gaming segment.
