Sony's new Cybershot DSC-W350 ultra-compact digital camera is loaded with more useful features than a camera this size should hold. It sports a 14.1-Megapixel imaging sensor, 4x optical Carl Zeiss lens, Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, Sweep Panorama and 720p HD video capture, just to name a few. The wide end of the 4x optical zoom reaches an extra-wide 26mm, allowing you to capture vast landscape images or large group portraits. If this is not enough, Sony's Sweep Panorama mode allows you to capture images with a 268° "sweep" of the camera either side-to-side or up and down.
