Sony Introduces New Range Of Sleek Cyber-Shot Cameras

New cameras? Sony's got 'em. The company just launched a new assortment of compact Cyber-Shot point-and-shoot cameras this evening. Three new models include the DSC-TX200V model from the ultra-thin Cyber-shot T series and the DSC-WX70 and DSC-WX50 models from the stylish, traditionally designed W series, each featuring a high-resolution "Exmor R" CMOS sensor and an improved BIONZ image processor that together boost low light performance and enhance auto-focus speeds, among other benefits.

The new TX200V camera features a newly developed 18.2 MP "Exmor R" CMOS sensor, the highest-resolution currently offered in the "point and shoot" market, and a new BIONZ processor, which work together to create images and video files with extremely low noise. The advanced model also offers lightning-fast AutoFocus speeds of approximately 0.13 seconds in daytime and 0.25 seconds in low-light situations (speeds may vary based on shooting conditions), helping to ensure you never miss the moment.

Additionally, the TX200V Cyber-shot showcases a new beautiful, reinforced glass design with a large, 3.3-inch (8.3cm) Xtra Fine TruBlack OLED wide touch-screen. It is also water-proof (up to 5m or approx.16 feet), dust-proof and freeze-proof (up to 14oF), and features a "Photo Creativity" interface that lets users easily adjust creative settings to produce unique, custom-styled photos.

The new WX70 and WX50 models each are equipped with a high-resolution 16.2 MP "Exmor R" CMOS sensor, with the WX70 featuring a 3.0-inch 921k dot LCD touch-screen and the WX50 featuring a slightly smaller 2.7-inch LCD screen. The TX200V, WX70 and WX50 cameras also offer image stabilization during video and still shooting. Additional notable features of the new lineup include nine "Picture Effect" options for expanded creativity, "Dual Record" capabilities, 3D shooting modes (3D Still Image, 3D Sweep Panorama and Sweep Multi Angle), fast shooting speeds (10 fps burst mode) and more.

One thing's for sure -- these guys are sleeker than sleek.

Wow! I love the sleek design and the 18.2 MP for the TX200V is very impressive for a point and shoot camera as well as the OLED display. Water proof, dust proof, and freeze proof? I think it's time for me to trade-in my 6 year old Nikon for this one.
