USA Today and Sony

USA Today and Sony have announced an exciting partnership. Gannett will equip their journalists exclusively with Sony Alpha imaging equipment and FX Cinema Line equipment.

This announcement includes the journalists at the nation’s largest newspaper, USA Today. Also, those from more than 250 additional regional and local papers under the Gannett banner. Between USA Today and Gannett’s other properties, the organization reaches around 50% of all Americans.

USA Today and Sony announces a partnership. Gannet reporters will shoot with bodies and lenses like the a9 II with the 600 attached.

Bruce Odie, director of Gannett’s in-house agency and sports wire service says of this collaboration

We are excited to bring Sony’s innovative equipment to our journalists to allow them to capture the moments and emotions in new ways to complement the compelling stories of the USA TODAY NETWORK.

As a Sony Mirrorless evangelist, this news is big. To rephrase it, the collaboration is a massive program. What’s more, it will have positive ramifications for news coverage for years to come.  And, the Gannett reporters join the AP in shooting exclusively with Sony.

In addition to product delivery, Sony will support Gannett with extensive product service offerings. Including, direct, on-site support for photo and video journalists at many key industry events.

My friends at Sony are extremely pleased with this collaboration.
