Sony has announced Xperia Z/ZL here at CS yesterday, along with with some other products, but the Japanese company also announced 5 new point-and-shoot cameras.
Potentially the most popular of the new cameras will be the CyberShot WX80 – a $200 camera with a 16.2MP sensor, 8x optical zoom (25-200mm), 1080i60 video capture and built-in Wi-Fi. It also features Optical Steady Shot stabilization and 10fps burst shots.
A cheaper model ($140) is the CyberShot W730 – it has a 16.1MP sensor, 8x optical zoom and Optical Steady Shot, but it only does 720p video and lacks Wi-Fi. The W710 is $100 and has the same features, except the optical zoom, which is 5x.
The CyberShot TF1 drops the optical zoom reach to 4x, but it gains waterproofing (IPX8, up to 10m), along with shock (MIL-STD 810F), freeze and dust (IP6X) resistance. It’s $199.
Finally, there’s the top-end model – the CyberShot H200. It’s a $250 superzoom camera with a 20.1MP Super HAD CCD sensor, 26x (22.3-580mm) optical zoom, Optical Steady Shot stabilization and 720p video recording.
All these cameras have Advanced flash (which boosts the camera’s sensitivity), 360-degree panoramas and Beauty shot. They will be available this month from Sony’s site, stores and authorized retailers.
