Now Sony has a seven mega pixel compact camera


How many mega pixels do you want from your compact digital camera? It wasn’t that long ago that makers were telling us that three mega pixels were enough. Well now Sony has taken camera technology a step further by offering a model capable of taking 7.2 mega pixel images.

Due in September, the Cyber-shot P150 also incorporates a pop-up Carl Zeiss Varrio-Tessar 3x optical zoom lens and a 1.8in LCD monitor. Sony is also claiming a breakthrough in battery life, with the camera able to shoot up to 320 images from one charge. Other facilities include MPeg video movie capture, automatic and manual expo sure, macro, Flash and self-timer options and compatibility with Memory Stick and Memory Stick Pro storage cards.

Sony hasn’t confirmed a price, but we reckon it will be £4-500
