Take everything you know about digital camera sensors and turn it around. That's what Sony is doing in developing a new 5 megapixel CMOS imager.
The Sony Alpha DSLR-A200 is the follow-on model to Sony's first DSLR, the entry-level A100. According to Sony, the A200 is faster, lighter, and easier to use than its predecessor, in addition to providing improved noise control and AF acquisition times. In a crowded entry-level DSLR field, it will be interesting to see whether these basic performance improvements keep Sony competitive.
No, it's not an April Fools prank: after half a year on the top of our Most Popular Digital Cameras list, the Sony Cyber-shot T200 hasn't just been dethroned - it's been completely removed from the top 10 altogether. With new models hitting store shelves, half of the cameras from last month didn't make a repeat appearance in March.

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.
