I’m over in Rhodes at the Sony press event at the moment. It’s a bit strange to say the least – hundreds and hundreds of journalists from all over Europe, sitting in a series of workshops during which time they get brief glimpses of some gadgets. It makes a very welcome change from the usual press event which involves being herded round a large hall being told lots of product numbers and specs, but It’s proving a bit difficult to actually get hold of samples so that I can shoot you some videos. One product I’m very keen to get my hands on is the Sony Cyber-Shot T100, and hopefully I’ve have a chance before the trip is over. In the mean time, I can tell you that it looks mighty perty. It’s got 8.1 megapixels, Carl Zeiss lens, 5x optical zoom and a 3-inch LCD screen. So far, so normal, but it also comes with Full High Definition 1080 output for displaying photos on your HD TV. It comes with face recognition technology (a first for this range) and it’s got the same image processor that the Sony Alpha SLR camera uses – all in a 22mm wide body.
The Cyber-shot T100 will be available throughout Europe from the beginning of March 2007. Pricing TBC. [Katie Lee]
