The highly anticipated, and often leaked, details of the Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 digital SLR have finally been made public. After acquiring assets from Konica Minolta last year, the photography world has been waiting to see what Sony would introduce. The 10.2 megapixel A100 and 19 lenses will surely be under the microscope in the months to come.
Digit.no has posted an interview with a Sony representative about the upcoming Alpha digital SLR, expected some time this summer.
Sony announces the branding of the digital SLR cameras that are expected to be available this summer.
Finishing up their announcements for PMA, Sony has announced the Cyber-shot DSC-H5 and Cyber-shot DSC-H2 ultra zoom digital cameras. Also two new cameras will be added to their W line, the Cyber-shot DSC-W70 and Cyber-shot DSC-W100. UPDATE: Added some product shots and sample images.
In a prelude to the PMA show at the end of February, Sony has announced two new cameras for their "W" line of cameras. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 and Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 will be available in February and March, respectively. The W30 will retail for $230 and the W50 will retail for $250.
It's been a while since our last "Users Speak Out..." article, but the topic of today, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N1, has had a recent jump in popularity on our site. We thought that more of you would like to see what people are saying about this camera. The opinions will be chosen based on the value of the information (in our opinion) to our readers.
In an announcement today, Konica Minolta has said that they're exiting the camera business. Since they announced their "partnership" with Sony in July of 2005, they've been working to sell a portion of their assets to Sony. Sony is expected to continue to develop digital SLR cameras using the Maxxum/Dynax assests from Konica Minolta.
Along with several new products that they're featuring at CES, the one digital still camera (they also have a hybrid camera - the Cyber-shot DSC-M2) that they've announced is the Cyber-shot DSC-S600. It looks like Sony is aiming for a much lower price point than they have in the past with this model, for which they're taking pre-orders for $199 now.
Sony has announced the Cyber-shot DSC-T9, the latest in their T series of ultra-slim digital cameras. This camera shoots 6 megapixels and has a 2.5 inch LCD. The non-protruding lens has a 3x optical zoom and, new with this camera, optical image stabilization. This is the first camera to use a lens shift stabilization system in the "folded-path" lens. The T9 will be available in January for around $450 from Sony at www.sonystyle.com, at Sony Style retail stores and authorized dealers.
This week, Samsung and Pentax announced that they are entering an agreement to develop digital SLR cameras (not unlike the Sony/Konica Minolta arrangement announced recently). Samsung's electronics experience and Pentax's lens expertise will allow both companies to combine resources and remain competitive in the segment of the digital camera market that can still yield a decent profit.
Sony continues to come out with devices that define a new category. With the Sony Cyber-shot N1, you can take 8 megapixel pictures and then view/share then on the 3 inch touch screen LCD. The N1's album feature can handle up to 500 images, so all you have to do is shoot away. The N1 digital camera will be available in mid-November for about $500 online at SonyStyle.com.
