It used to be that the only guarantees in life were death and taxes, but in this high-tech world we can add the march of technology and internet rumours to this list. Rumours of the next generation PlayStation have been especially abundant in recent months and they are painting a very interesting picture. With far more continuity between generations it is looking like Sony’s move to AMD for the PS4 is starting to pay off for everyone. Will this be a case of evolution being better than a revolution? Will the console wars switch tracks and be won by the dark horse Nintendo? Can anyone believe it’s been so long since the last GTA game?
The march of technology continues relentlessly like the beat of a military drummer, affecting every aspect of our electric lives. Photographic equipment is no exception especially when a company such as Sony is pushing hard to capture market share.
The rumour mill is churning with speculation of Sony’s next generation full frame cameras, pro-shooters that are pushing camera technology past its current limitations. Pushing the sensor resolution to 50 megapixels while trying a number of radical design changes should ensure Sony’s new pro-shooters captures everyone’s attention at the very least.
The upcoming CES (Consumer Electronics Show) should see Sony demonstrating some of the new models; the more radical designs may not make the cut. None the less Sony should have some very interesting new hardware on show in Las Vegas (January 8-11 2013)
