Sony also made its new top-of-the-line W model public today, with the launch of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300. The W300 features a fairly conventional 3x zoom, but boasts an impressive 13.6 megapixels of effective resolution.
In a press release this morning, Sony has provided details about the latest additions to its Cyber-shot line, including the 9.1 megapixel, 15x zoom Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50. The H50's most prominent feature, visually and functionally, is its 15x Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar zoom. Out back, the H50 wears a 3-inch tilting LCD that allows equally easy shooting from low and high angles.

In a press conference this morning, Sony put the announcement from Tuesday about the semiconductor division's development of a full-frame 24 megapixel CMOS sensor into a production context with the news that it is working to develop a flagship full-frame DSLR for its Alpha series. Other than its 24.6 megapixels of resolution and innovative A/D conversion technique for lower high-ISO noise, detailed specs for the new camera were few in coming. What is known is that the camera should be ready for market by the end of the year.
In an announcement today, Sony officially launched two additions to its digital SLR lineup. The 10.2 megapixel Sony Alpha DSLR-A300 and 14.2 megapixel DSLR-A350 introduce the manufacturers Live View system, allowing users to compose images on-screen rather than through the optical viewfinder alone.

The Sony T200 continues to be one of the most popular, most searched for cameras out there, but in an announcement this afternoon Sony indicated its intention to replace the device with a new model, the Cyber-shot DSC-T300. Baseline specs for the T300 are similar to its predecessor: 10.1 megapixel sensor (upgraded from 8.1), a 5x Carl Zeiss zoom, and Super SteadyShot mechanical image stabilization. Of course, much of the draw for this camera will undoubtedly focus on the fact that the T300 also keeps the T200's 3.5-inch touch screen.
We barely finished reviewing Sony's DSC-H3 pocket ultra-zoom before word of its replacement, in the form of the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H10, came down from the manufacturer. The new model comes dressed with same 10x Carl Zeiss zoom lens, long-range flash, and 8.1 megapixel sensor of its predecessor; the only noted physical modification, in fact, is the H10's move to a 3-inch Clear Photo LCD Plus screen.
In anticipation of PMA, Sony unveiled a complete reworking of its Cyber-shot W series, showing off the new W120, W130, W150, and W170. Providng replacements to Sony's popular W55, W80, and W90 models, the new gear promises more entry- and mid-level shooting power for the company's broadest camera series.
With its 3.5-inch touchscreen interface, the Sony Cyber-shot T200 certainly makes a big impression. Initial thoughts on the 8.1 megapixel, 5x zoom T200 are that it offers the goods in terms of style, ruggedness, and image quality to live up to the hype.
