Sony launches 4GB digital camera

Large memory stores thousands of snaps


Sony's Cyber-shot T2 digital camera

Sony has unveiled a new eye-catching Cyber-shot T2 digital camera which comes with a huge memory capable of storing thousands of pictures.

The electronics giant says the camera’s 4GB internal flash memory has enough space to store around 1,250 top-quality images.

And if you reduce the picture resolution the T2 can store over 40,000 images, with shots automatically indexed and arranged in albums.

The 8.1-megapixel T2 – which is available in black, blue, green, pink and white – also has ‘Sharemark’ technology which Sony says makes it easier to upload pictures directly to blogs and image-sharing web sites.

‘Smile Shutter’

The camera has a Carl Zeiss 3x optical zoom lens, a 2.7-inch touchscreen LCD display and comes with Sony’s ‘Smile Shutter’ and ‘Face Detection’ features.

The ‘Smile Shutter’ identifies when someone is smiling and will immediately take a shot without you needing to press the shutter.

If there are several people in the frame, the shutter only fires when the main subject – selected using the camera’s touchscreen – is smiling.

Sony says the Face Detection feature automatically adjusts exposure, flash and other settings – even at high zoom settings, in low light or with moving subjects.

Memory cards

Which? digital camera expert Chris Christoforou said: ‘Sony have been quite innovative with their cameras lately – this is their second model with a very large internal memory that can do away with the need to buy extra memory cards.

‘We like the sound of their Sharemark technology even more – Sony have recognised that more and more people are sharing their photos on the web, and any feature that tries to make this easier is welcome.’

The Cyber-shot T2 will be available from the beginning of November.
