Watching the news tonight, Sony made a statement as to the tough times it's experiencing, but is looking at inovation as the way through, specifically, releasing the A900F, a film camera modelled on the Minolta Alpha 9, but with a screen on the back, similar to the Minolta Alpha 7. It takes a memory stick to store exif info for upto 20 rolls of film (they didn't say what size card). Then they talked of cutting back more of the work force and moving their flat screen division.
Slightly related, the Japanese government, from today, has introduced tax exemptions for eco friendly cars, so Toyota and Honda are feeling more confident this year.
I wish they said what the price of the A900F would be.
