Sony announces two new cameras at CES 2014

Sony has just unveiled two new models for 2014, an inexpensive point-n-shoot and a new Alpha series ILC. The a5000 is a compact ILC that sits between the NEX-3N and NEX-5T. Sony has dropped the NEX designation for their E-mount line up, with all A-mount DSLRS and E-mount ILCs falling under the Alpha umbrella. The a5000 boasts a 20.1MP APS-C sized CMOS image sensor, BIONZ X processor, a 3.0-inch tilting display, full 1080p HD video recording in 60i, 30p, and 24p formats, built-in Wi-Fi and much more. Head over to our Sony a5000 ILC Preview to learn more.

Next up is a new Cyber-Shot point-n-shoot camera; the DSC-W830. This sub-$130 camera is easy on the pocketbook, yet not on features when you consider its price tag. Inside its very small frame, Sony managed to stuff a 20.1MP Super HAD CCD image senor and an 8x optical zoom lens. You can also record 720p HD video, and they have included all of their popular and easy to use exposure options; including iAuto (intelligent Auto), 11 scene modes, etc. See our Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W830 Preview to see a full list of features.
