Sony Launches New 'Retinal Projection Camera Kit

The rumor mill suggests Sony is near due for a major new camera announcement of some sort. With the Sony A7R5 and FX30 launches well behind us, the most salivating guesses to date have been a new vlog-ready interchangeable lens camera akin to the Sony ZV-E10 (which Sony Alpha Rumors says is all but confirmed for late March), a sequel to the compact full-frame Sony A7C, or perhaps a proper, long-awaited update to the Sony A7S III.

So, you'll have to forgive us for bubbling with excitement when we saw the announcement of a new camera today. It's not exactly what we'd hoped for, but it's no less cool — Sony has announced the DSC-HX99 RNV, and if that name sounds familiar, it's because there's already an 18-megapixel point-and-shoot camera by a similar name in play, and this particular product is largely based on that.

It sounds like an odd dud of a rehash at first blush, but this camera adds what Sony is calling a Retinal Projection kit, with the overall purpose being to help the vision-impaired see their everyday surroundings better.

Sony created this special version of the camera in partnership with QD Laser, which developed a Retissa Neoviewer viewfinder that uses laser retinal projection to deliver digital images directly to your eyeballs. It gives those with severe visual impairments a new tool to read the world around them.

In addition to acting as a real-time visual aid, users can also capture photos and raw video just as they would with any ordinary point-and-shoot, making this a tool whose utility can be equally fun as it is necessary for the target consumer. The wide focal length range of 24-720mm allows you to track subjects from incredible distances, with the super-telephoto end providing more reach than most folks need, even for wildlife photography.

This sounds like a project of passion for Sony, as the company will eat the costs to offer the kit for just $600, only about $150 more than you'd have paid for the original DSC-HX99 when it first launched. It arrives this summer, and there will only be a limited quantity available in the U.S. through Sony's website.

How to Navigate the Enrollment Process for Individual Health Insurance Plans

Health insurance comes in different types and offers coverage against the increasing costs of medical treatments. However, there are some differences between individual health plans and family health plans.
