The video on top has been shoot by Jamie Unwin with the great help from Sony UK. I am glad to hear that Sony sponsors that kind of projects. That iw what Jamie told me:
“I’m an advocate for Sony UK, my latest film about The Illegal WIldlife Trade in Malawi, Africa has just been released.
This year Malawi stands up to wildlife crime, I spent my Christmas producing a short 8 minute film that was shown to the President of Malawi, Peter Mutharika the film was then aired on national TV in Malawi. As a result the president has decided to burn the entirety of Malawi’s Ivory stock piles as a clear signal to the world that Malawi is serious about protecting its wildlife. The film worked as a persuasive and deterrent conservation tool, to show the people of Malawi that if they protect their wildlife and natural places it will benefit them economically by attracting tourism, creating a spiral of economic benefits. The film also exposed that Malawi is taking wildlife crime seriously, enforcing prison sentences to those who commit the crimes.
We know you have a big media following and as we are trying to reach as many people as possible it would be incredibly beneficial if you would share the film for us.
Sony provided all the equipment to make the film. it was entirely shot on using the Sony a77mk2 and a99.

The new revised Sony financial forecast report.
It really looks like the big Sony financial crisis will be over soon. Playstation sales and Imaging Sensor Business made Sony post its best quarterly profit in seven years and increase its projection for annual sales. Sony now expects a full-year operating profit of 20 billion yen, compared with an earlier forecast for a 40 billion-yen loss.
Smartphone-selfie ready cameras and autocar cameras are pushing the Sony sensor sales. There is yet no specific info about how good the Alpha-RX cameras business is doing. But having a booming sensor business certainly helps the digital camera division to keep costs down and to get the best tech :)
