Although many camera makers have chosen to use CES to introduced advanced fixed lens cameras, Sony has chosen to stick primarily with thin point and shoot Cyber-shot models that offer some extra features.
The five cameras Sony has announced in Las Vegas are:
- Cyber-shot H200. This ultra-zoom camera ($250) is the exception versus the other models on this list, as it's quite a bit thicker than your typical Cyber-shot camera, offering a 26X optical zoom lens.
- Cyber-shot TF1. This camera ($200, pictured here) is able to operate safely in water depth of up to 33 feet.
- Cyber-shot W710. This sub-$100 camera has only a 5X optical zoom lens.
- Cyber-shot W730. The W730 ($140) is a colorful, thin camera with 16.1MP of resolution and an 8X zoom lens.
- Cyber-shot WX80. Sony has included Wi-Fi capabilities in this 16.2MP camera ($200).
Look for these cameras to be available for sale starting at the end of January. I'll have more details on all five models in the next several weeks in my blog.
