Sony Cyber-shot range gets megapixel boostNew Cyber-shot cameras showcased at CES 2009
22 January 2009
Sony unveiled a new line-up of digital cameras at this month's CES 2009 event in Las Vegas. The company took the wraps off the Cyber-shot DSC-W210, the Cyber-shot DSC-S950, the Cyber-shot DSC-W220 and the Cybershot DSC-G3 digital cameras.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-G3 received most of the attention, as it's the first camera to feature Wi-Fi web-browsing capabilities. It features a 10Mp sensor, 4x optical zoom and 4GB of internal memory.
The W220, the W210 and the SP950 each feature a 4x zoom. Both the W220 and the W210 offer 12.1Mp of resolution, while the SP950 has a 10.1Mp sensor.
Ben Stevens, Which? researcher, said: 'Of all the cameras launched at this year's CES, the G3 from Sony stood out due to its unique web-browsing function. This function will appeal to users who want to instantly upload their photos to picture-sharing sites such as Flickr.'
