There's always a moment when the harsh nature of reality is crystallised; when however hard you try, you can't pretend any more that things are OK. For most people, this type of thing happens when they get their first credit card bill after Christmas. For Red, one imagines, their corporate hearts stopped for a moment last Tuesday, 30th October, when Sony revealed the scale of their new camera ecosystem.
RedShark Technical Editor Phil Rhodes delivers a dose of sobering news: some noise in imaging systems is impossible to eliminate. Blame physics.
With RedShark's 4K month just two weeks away, 3NET Studios, a joint venture owned by Sony, Discovery and IMAX, has announced that its initial slate of TV series and specials will include the first ever 4K television series: Space.
Sony has been teasing us with glimpses of their new 4K delivery system since shortly after they released details of their 84" 4K Bravia TV. Concrete details have been thin on the ground, and we still don't know what the final product will look like. And there's a bigger question as well…

This is a product that I wouldn't normally look at. Binoculars for me are purely optical devices and while they're useful, of course, sometimes, they're not something I pay much attention to. So it was with a mild feeling of indifference that I watched this video. But then it dawned on me that the whole industry should be looking at this new Sony product
Shooting films is better lit with, you know, lights. But if you just have to use a candle as your sole light source, there's hope for you yet. Not only that, but Sony's light-sipping A7s could get you out of all sorts of low-light trouble
Sony and Panasonic have announced that they are working together to develop the next generation of Optical Discs for Archive purposes
