Sony and Harrison Cameras
To be perfectly truthful, Sony were not on our radar for quite a few years as they were late into the camera market and we didn't feel that a new-comer would have the expertise of the older more established photographic companies. Well, how wrong we were, the range was brilliant and Sony had all the resources to throw at the Digital Age of photography, teaming up with Carl Zeiss in order to put their lenses on selected cameras. Sony soon became a major player at Harrison Cameras, knocking on the door of Canon, Nikon and Olympus with their Alpha and NEX cameras and proving that they were a professional company with great ideas.
