Sony has announced three Cybershot cameras for a September release, including two models that have the ability to capture images in 3D.
- Cybershot DSC-T99. Sony's T99 ($250 MSRP) doesn't offer the 3D capabilities of the other two recently announced models, but it can shoot at 14.1 megapixels of resolution and a 3.0-inch touch-screen LCD.
- Cybershot DSC-TX9. The TX9 ($400 MSRP, pictured here) contains a 3.5-inch, high-resolution LCD screen that can simulate 3D images.
- Cybershot DSC-WX5. Despite a smaller LCD screen, measuring 2.8 inches diagonally, the WX5 ($300 MSRP) also can simulate 3D images on its LCD screen.
I'll have more details on the Sony 3D cameras closer to their release dates. These new Sony cameras join several models that Sony has released in 2010, including seven models in January, two in February, and one in May.
The images that two 3D cameras create are viewable on 3D televisions (with 3D glasses). The images also can be viewed in 2D. It will be interesting to learn more about the technology behind the Sony 3D cameras, and to see whether it differs from Fujifilm's 3D technologies, which I wrote about earlier.
