Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W620 Preview

For 2012, Sony has released three new Cyber-Shot W-series cameras; the DSC-W650, DSC-W620, DSC-W610. These ultra-compact models built upon the popular features of past cameras, with various 2012 upgrades. The most appealing feature of these new cameras is the price; each are under $140 USD!

While extremely affordable, the Cyber-Shot DSC-W620 still includes some nice features, like a 14-megapixel SUPER HAD CCD image sensor, a 5x optical zoom lens, 2.7-inch LCD screen, Intelligent Auto exposure controls, 360 Sweep Panorama, and Sony's Steady Shot image stabilization (sensor shift, not optical), and 720p HD (MP4) video recording to name a few. This camera is extremely compact, and should have no problem fitting in the smallest of pockets.
