SONY's Backstage 101 - Closed!
Yeah, the "open" SONY Digital Photography discussion forum is ...
The discussions turned sour, as SONY steers away from the important aspects of digital photography and does not want to hear about its decisions from the masses. Political variations on the same old corporate nonsense. :p When you have a good thing going ... spoil it.
Future developments that mean something
While "adaptive optics" ideas are all over the place, they still represent the REAL change in photography that is worth of the 21st Century technological advancement.
I believe even a slight improvement in this area would be a very cool effort and clearly demonstrate that there is a future in photographic development, not just another "marginally improved" camera body to put in the annual SONY stack.
What I guess I am pointing to, is the fact that you could truly give "legacy glass" new life in ways that simply are unobtainable with any other method and save the entire planet a lot of money and landfill space. How GREEN an idea is that? (I'm trying to appeal to their environmental/political bandwagon interests)
I know what you are thinking ... will Minolta glass NEVER die? This could very well provide such an answer.
