Sony Unveils Seven New Cyber-Shots Cameras

On top of all the cameras being announced this evening, Sony has released seven new Cyber-shot models.

First up are two powerful compact models, which boast some of the most high-end features Sony has to offer. They claim that the DSC-HX5V and DSC-TX7 are the world's first compact digicams to include the ability to record full HD (1920 x 1080 60i) AVCHD video. On top of this, they offer GPS, in-camera HDR, Sony's Exmor R back illuminated CMOS sensors, their new TransferJet technology, large LCD screens (3.5-inch touchscreen on the TX7, 3.0-inch standard display on the HX5V), and versatile 25mm zoom lenses (TX7= 4x, HX5V=10x).

Next they added four new models to their ever popular W-series of durable ultra-compact models. The W370, W350, W330, and W310 offer features to suit the needs of any user. The W310 and W330 will work great for first time digicam buyers, or those who have a smaller budget, but still want great performance and quality. Both models feature 4x Carl Zeiss wide view optical zoom lens, with the W330 offering 14-megapixels and a 3.0-inch, and the W310 boasting 12-megapixels and a 2.7-inch screen.


The W370 and W350 share a 14-megapixel image sensor, Sony's Sweep Panorama function, 720p HD video recording, and Super SteadyShot image stabilization. The W370 uses a 7x optical zoom lens and a 3.0-inch LCD, while the W350 is equipped with a 4x zoom and 2.7-inch display.


Finally, we have the DSC-S2100. Sony designed this simple point-n-shoot for those who want an inexpensive model with basic features that can capture nice 12-megapixel photos. Other options offered are a 3x optical zoom, 3-inch LCD screen, AA battery power source.
