As part of CES 2011, Sony is announcing plans to offer 11 consumer-level point and shoot cameras this spring. The cameras are:
- Cyber-shot DSC-H70. The H70 (MSRP $230) includes a 10X optical zoom lens with limited wide angle capabilities.
- Cyber-shot DSC-HX7V. With up to 10 frames per second captured at full 16.2 megapixels of resolution, the HX7V ($300) is a power-packed camera.
- Cyber-shot DSC-T110. A 3-inch touch screen LCD highlights the T110 ($230).
- Cyber-shot DSC-TX10. The TX10 ($330, pictured here) is Sony's "tough" camera, with the ability to operate under water.
- Cyber-shot DSC-TX100V. A bulit-in GPS and a 3.5-inch touch screen LCD give the TX100V ($380) plenty of power.
- Cyber-shot DSC-W510. The W510 ($110) is Sony's most basic model announced at CES 2011, with 12.1MP of resolution.
- Cyber-shot DSC-W530. With a 2.7-inch LCD and 14.1MP of resolution, the W530 ($130) is aimed at beginners.
- Cyber-shot DSC-W560. You'll find 720p HD video capabilities and 14.1MP of resolution in the W560 ($160).
- Cyber-shot DSC-W570. The W570 ($180) likely will be the least expensive 16.1MP camera upon its February release.
- Cyber-shot DSC-WX9. Featuring a CMOS image sensor, the WX9 ($220) can shoot full HD video and 16.2MP of resolution.
- Cyber-shot DSC-WX10. The WX10 ($280) also offers a CMOS image sensor, along with a 7X optical zoom lens.
I'll have more details on each of these new Sony Cyber-shot cameras closer to their actual release dates in February and March. It looks like Sony is appealing to a wide range of beginning photographers with a mixture of colorful and powerful models!
