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.
