Sony targets enthusiasts
Sony has announced a mini digital camera blitz including the first in a range of models designed to appeal to enthusiasts. The Cyber-shot W1 features a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with a 3x optical zoom in a tough aluminium body.
It can capture five megapixel images, which can be previewed on its 2.5in LCD. It will be launched next month, but there are no details yet on price.
Sony has also unveiled a trio of point-and-shoot compact digital cameras – the Cyber-shot P43, P73 and P93. The first two models take four megapixel images, while the P93 takes five megapixel images. The P73 and P93 also have a 3x optical zoom lens. All three reach the stores in early June.
