Hands-on: Sony’s a6300 mirrorless camera makes a great 4K shooting companion

The iPhone can shoot 4K video, and now even the iPad can shoot 4K video. Yet, there are times when you need the flexibility and power provided by a standalone camera.

Standalone cameras have inherent advantages over smartphone cameras, despite the major strides made by iPhone photography over the last few years. Even with amazing third-party apps like FiLMiC Pro, which lets you adjust things like ISO and shutter speed, you’re still stuck with a constant aperture and fixed lens.

While smartphones have replaced point and shoot cameras for a vast amount of people, standalone cameras, especially ones with interchangeable lenses like the recently-released 24MP Sony a6300, still have their place. more…

Apple’s iPhone image sensor producer Sony details Kumamoto earthquake impact

Sony Corporation has issued an official news release in regards to the status of their manufacturing companies in Japan after the Kumamoto earthquakes. Having confirmed the safety of their employees in the affected regions, Sony has listed out a few details of the manufacturing sites that have been impacted as result of the earthquake.

Sony’s semiconductor factory in Kumamoto, which primarily manufactures image sensors for cameras, had seen its production halted after the earthquake and has yet to be started again. According to Sony, damage to the site is currently being evaluated, but the timeframe for resuming has yet to be confirmed. Sony’s main facility for smartphone image sensors in Nagasaki and its sister-site, Oita Technology Center, had its operations suspended but production had resumed on April 17th.

Currently there is no news as to how or if this will affect Apple’s current or future product line-up, specifically the dual-camera rumored to be integrated into the iPhone 7. TSMC, one of Apple’s chipmakers, was also affected by earthquakes back in February. Seeing a long-term loss impact of around less than 1% for 2016 production, TSMC remained confident they would be able to hit revenue targets. That earthquake which was responsible for the deaths of 116, and injuring countless others, also saw major damages to multiple other manufacturing plants around Taiwan.
