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.

Not Only are They Everywhere...
Japanese taxis are the most beautiful (and expensive) pieces of road-candy you could ever hope to see.

They exist in their own little auto-industry universe, still rocking the far-forward wing-mirrors for optimizing both the driver’s sight-lines and the passenger’s privacy.

RECAP & TOP 3: Venture Day Tokyo 2014 (GALLERY)
With attendance more than twice that of 2013, interest is clearly on the rise and the collaboration seems well placed among the growing and steadily maturing calendar of Tokyo startup pitching events. Pitches were made by teams led by both Japanese and/or foreign residents, non-Japanese multinational teams of students or alumni from the two academic sponsors, and even a completely non-affiliated American developer who joined from Osaka.

REVIEW: Sony AX100 4K Handycam (VIDEO; GALLERY)
The FDR-AX100 was the first consumer (provided those consumers were well off) camcorder that squeezed both a 1-inch Exmor R CMOS sensor (same one as the RX100) and the ability to shoot 4K Ultra HD 3840x2160 video into a compact-ish body. Does it work? It’s a Sony! BUT, there were a few catches...
