Sony Cyber-shot roundup
Sony has announced the release of two new Cyber-shots, the DSC-H50 and the DSC-W300, and it’s looking as though we’ve got a double whammy on our hands. Here’s what Crave has on the W300… “The W300 includes an impressive set of features under its shiny, titanium-coated casing. Its 35 to 105mm-equivalent f/2.8-5.8 lens seems fairly standard, but its 2.7-inch LCD screen and optical viewfinder give it surprising flexibility compared with most snapshot cameras. Like other Cyber-shot W-series cameras, the W300 includes a face detection system that Sony claims can distinguish between adult and children’s faces and–using the Smile Shutter mode–automatically take pictures when subjects smile. It also lets users share their photos with an on-board slide show with customizable MP3 soundtracks, includes in-camera photo search, and can output to HDTVs.”There’s also a built in noise-reduction feature that’s quite useful for the point-and-shoot, which are notorious for having grainy pics.Here’s what DigitalCameraInfo.com has on the DSC-H50…“Sony’s H-series of compact digital cameras are known for their sleek looks, long zooms, and easy-to-use features, which make the cameras ideal for point-and-shooters looking to upgrade to a more serious model. Sony today announced its H50, the follow-up to last year’s H9. The 9.1-megapixel model features a 15x optical zoom, a 3-inch, 230,000-pixel LCD screen, and a number of Sony’s new features and in-camera editing options.“So if your looking for some solid cameras for casual photography you many want to look into these options when they’re released.
