Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W800 Preview

Sony has announced a new compact point and shoot digicam, the Cyber-shot DSC-W800. Sony's camera includes a 20-megapixel CCD image sensor mated to a BIONZ image processor and a 5x optical zoom lens. While CCD sensors are not the best in lower lightning conditions, and can only record 720p HD Video (not "Full HD"), the W800 is an extremely affordable camera designed to fit in pockets and purses.

The W800 also boasts 8-person Face Detection, SteadyShot image stabilization to reduce motion blur and video camera shake, a 2.7-inch LCD display, 1 frame-per-second Burst Shooting for faster action, 360 Sweep Panorama for the instant creation of ultra-wide shots, and Beauty Effects, which touch up and enhance facial blemishes.
