Sony A7c Is A Full-frame Camera Stuffed Into A Compact Body

Sony A7c Is A Full-Frame Camera Stuffed Into A Compact Body

One of the upsides of using a mirrorless camera over a DSLR is that generally speaking, mirrorless cameras are smaller and lighter which makes them easier to carry around. Sony’s A7 series of mirrorless cameras are relatively compact, but the company does make even more compact models.

This creates a conundrum for photographers who want the power of the A7 series, but want a smaller body. Sony has since introduced a solution to that problem in the form of the newly-announced Sony A7c. This is a full-frame mirrorless camera that has been stuffed into a compact body similar to that of Sony’s A6000 series.

2021 Nissan Rogue Specs Compared With Compact Crossover Suvs

2021 Nissan Rogue specs compared with compact crossover SUVs

Nissan has finally revealed the 2021 Rogue, which means we have basic specs for the upcoming redesigned crossover. This clean-sheet overhaul should breathe new life into a compact crossover that once challenged the segment leaders for sales superiority. 

As usual, we've decided to define "top rivals" as the most commonly searched models in the segment: the 2020 Chevy Equinox, 2020 Honda CR-V, 2020 Ford Escape, 2020 Subaru Forester and 2020 Toyota RAV4. Also, for the purposes of this comparison, we're only looking at each vehicle's gasoline internal combustion engines, so we're leaving out the hybrid versions of the Escape and RAV4, though that information is included in the accompanying tables. 

Acura Roadmap Leaks, Suggests Compact Type S And Mdx Type S Coming

Acura roadmap leaks, suggests compact Type S and MDX Type S coming

The Type S moniker is back along with the 2021 Acura TLX Type S sedan. And today, the internet has sprouted some more Acura Type S news. We caught wind of a forum post on Acurazine through a thread on Reddit that includes a link to a video allegedly shown during Acura's 2020 dealer meeting webcast. That video doesn't appear to be live anymore, but an enterprising individual happened to screenshot the most important slide from the video: Acura's product roadmap to 2022. Here's the link you're looking for.

Take this information with a grain of salt. There's a good chance that this intel is correct, but plans change. Most imminent is a redesigned Acura MDX with a Type S variant. We expect an MDX Type S to follow the same formula as the TLX Type S. Acura's new 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 would be a fine candidate for this duty. With that powerplant (horsepower unknown, but likely around 400 ponies), it could punch up against SUVs like the Mercedes-AMG GLE 53, or punch down to the Ford Explorer ST. tuned suspension, plenty of appearance add-ons and sportier interior would also likely be along for the ride. It's placed directly after the TLX on the chart timewise, so there's a good chance that we see a new MDX soon.

Honda's Compact Ev Will Swap Out Side Mirrors For Cameras

Honda's Compact EV Will Swap Out Side Mirrors For Cameras

According to Honda, “The next-generation camera technology helps the car retain a modern, clean and simple design, and complements the stepless A-pillars and flush ‘pop out’ door handles, also confirmed for the production version of the Honda e. Unlike conventional side mirrors, the cameras are contained within the width of the car and do not extend beyond the wheel arches.”

The company also claims that with the removal of the side mirrors, which can stick out a bit, it can help to reduce the drag of the car, which in theory should reduce the amount of energy required to move forwards, thus potentially extending the range of the car as a result. The cameras will transmit information to screens placed on the dashboard inside of the car.
