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.
The new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T2 is a new large screen, sharing-friendly, portable album, digital camera.

The T2 will be available in blue, green, white, pink or black, starting in December 2007 for around $350.

Well, we knew that Sony had two digital SLRs in the works and today they've announced the Sony Alpha A700, targeted at "photo enthusiasts or serious photo hobbyists".

Also available in October will be a kit that has the camera and a 18-70mm lens for $1500. In November, you can get a kit with a 16-105mm lens for $1900.
I really liked the Sony W70 I tested a couple of years back, so I approached the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 with a lot of enthusiasm. The W80 is an attractive entry-level auto-exposure only digicam designed to appeal to casual photographers, snap-shooters, first time digital camera buyers, and shutterbugs who value simplicity and ease of use.

Both cameras will ship in mid-September, with the T200 retailing for $400 and the T70 retailing for $330.
