Sony at CP+ 2023: Sony a7RV, Sony FE 50mm F1.4 GM, FE 20-70mm F4 G, FE 600mm F4 GM OSS, and Retinal Projection Camera Kit For Low-Vision Users

CP+ 2023 has started, and DC.Watch has coverage on the floor. The fascinating Sony retinal projection camera kit for low-vision users we covered earlier today was on the showroom floor, and the first-hand account of how it works is very interesting. The low-vision viewfinder for the Sony DSC-HX99 projects the image onto the user’s retina, and the user reported that he could see floaters in his eye like dust on the image sensor. For those unaware, as the eye breaks down with age, material accumulates in the eye called floaters, and they can be seen at various times.

I wish Sony would have made this system even more helpful by making it compatible with many cameras and camera systems because I do know quite a few low-vision photographers that would love to use Sony’s new retinal projection camera kit. Their current workaround is to use the rear LCD of a camera with an adapter that focuses the large LCD into an eye piece that is easier for low-vision users to compose with.

Sony also had the new Sony FE 50mm F1.4 GM, FE 20-70mm F4 G, and FE 600mm F4 GM OSS there to test and handle with their eye autofocus exhibit that allowed Sony to easily show off their eye AF system on the Sony a7RV.
