Sony RX100 VII Preview First Shots • Gallery Images Almost every year since Sony first debuted its pocket-friendly, large-sensor RX100 camera series back in 2012, the company has had something of a tradition. And in the midst of every summer (other than those of 2016 and 2017), Sony has treated us to a new RX100-series flagship camera in either June or, much more often, Ju
Our Firmware Friday roundup this week is a single-company affair, with only Japan's Sigma Corp. having released any updates in the past seven days. If you're not shooting a Sigma lens on a Sony E-mount body, you can move along now, safe in the knowledge that there's no new firmware for your gear this week.

This week's Firmware Friday roundup is uncommonly brief, with just one new firmware update appearing on the scene in the past seven days.

As I usually do, I stayed on in Japan after this year's CP+ trade show, and while there had a chance to visit Olympus' research and development headquarters in Hachioji where I sat down with some of their engineers.
