Sony packs more power into its compact cameras with the RX100 V and a6500

Sony has a pair of new cameras for sale — though perhaps “new” isn’t the word, since they’re more like upgrades to existing devices. The price is upgraded, too — you’re not getting away for under a grand, though you’ll be getting a lot of camera for your money.

He used a Form 2 SLA printer, which can put out objects …
