The Ferociously Nonchalant Cats of Ikebukuro (Alpha 7S GALLERY) -

They Just Don't Care
(about being photographed up close with the 
Sony α7S, or much else)
This week's gallery of Tokyo shots ties in with our recently review of Sony's fabulous new shooter. Senior Contributor Nayalan Moodley shot a whole lotta stuff to complete his review, including this gallery of the very well-maintained street cats from Tokyo's Ikebukuro Ward.

Gallery links are below, and those interested in learning about the camera behind today's collection can jump on through to the operatic, hands-on review.

Tokyo Street Shots

AkihabaraNews is Japan & Asia tech, and we work to find the cool and cultural news accessible only to a boots-on-the-ground team. Our editors and contributors also provide perspective on everyday life: meeting the people, eating the foodtaking the train, using the tech, and walking the streets of this pulsating seethe of technology and social structure that, with approximately 36 million metro area inhabitants, is far and away the world’s largest city.

That's Right, Yet Another Big-Ass Gallery of Really Great Photos. Of Toys 

Sony has changed up the form factor a bit, JVC and Ricoh have gone for full-on assault drop Space Marine armour (for the glory of the imperium of man!), and Panasonic went with the duo of innovative mounting option and first-to-the-market 4k for theirs. In the end though, they all did basically the same thing: capturing the action. The one Japanese electronics behemoth that was noticeably absent from the fray was CASIO… until now.

Taking underwater photos of girls in bikinis wearing knee-high mecha-socks might be one of the better jobs ever to have been conceived in the history of work. And if one could also get those photos published in a book and sell it for money, the gig would definitely crack the top 10. Well, someone nailed it.

Very Big Game Show
If you haven't been to Makuhari Messe before, know that 'convention center' doesn't quite do it justice. No, 'stadium' is a closer approximation of the venue's size and footprint on the northeastern edge of Tokyo Bay [MAP], part of the Tokyo Metro Area, but actually in Chiba Prefecture (not far from from Tokyo Disney Land).

REVIEW: Casio Selfie-Cam (Me, Myself & I)

The Casio EX-TR35 is a peculiar beast...
Were you to look at the specs, you’d see a 12 megapixel 1/23 inch backlit CMOS sensor mated to a 3.8mm (Full frame equivalent of 21mm) lens in a small, but not particularly impressive, plastic body.
