Sony unwrapped today two new Cyber-shot digital still cameras that are the world’s first compact digital cameras to include full 1080i HD (1920 x 1080 60i) Advanced Video Codec High Definition (AVCHD) video capability. Both are also the smallest and thinnest AVCHD capable cameras currently produced.
Sony has announced two new 14-megapixel Cyber-shot cameras (models DSC-W370 and DSC-W350)with a CCD image sensor that provides the novel Sweep Panorama™ feature in a slim, compact body. Sweep Panorama mode (first introduced in Sony’s previous models) utilizes a CCD sensor to capture dramatic panoramic scenes, shooting images continuously to capture wide landscapes or tall buildings in one easy “press and sweep” motion.
Sony also announced three cameras (models DSC-W330, DSC-W310 and DSC-S2100) that offer a new thin, stylish design with advanced features such as longer zoom and wide-angle lenses.
