Sony RETISSA NEOVIEWER – An EVF for Visually Impaired Users

Adapter for visually impaired users

At this year’s CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show in Japan an interesting new adaptive device was introduced which will allow users with visual impairment to use a camera. (from the manufacturer) The DSC-HX99 is a small compact camera with a ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 24-720mm zoom, an 18.2 Megapixels sensor, and the capability of recording 4K videos in 3840×2160. The RETISSA NEOVIEWER housing wraps around the back side of the camera and is connected with an HDMI cable at the bottom. The unit currently works with Sony cameras and will be available in late March at selected Sony stores in Japan.

Though not manufactured by Sony, the Sony brand continues to be a source for accessibility features for visually impaired users of their brand. It is great to see manufacturers embracing their users wo have low vision, allowing those with less than perfect sight to create art. If you would like more information about this cool new adapter, check out the link below, and if you would like to see my article about the Sony camera with screen reader technology built in, check out that link below. 

As a professional photographer who is blind, I’d love to get my hands on this technology (or the camera listed below).
