CES 2009: Sony shows off three more Cyber-shot compact digital cameras

Cameras, CES 2009

sony-cyber-shot-w210-w220-s950.jpgSony may have revealed its Cybershot G3 Wi-Fi enabled camera which we (apparently) are not going to get a sniff off in the UK, but we’ve got three Cyber-shot cameras of our own to keep us busy.

I’m not sure if these have been shown at CES or not, but everything else seems to have been, so this is where I’ll pretend we’ve seen them first.

The W210, W220 and S950 are compact digital cameras with a fairly standard set of features. Is it worth getting excited about them? Read on and find out.

The Cyber-shot W210 and W220 models both offer 12.1 megapixels, Carl Zeiss lens, 4x optical zoom, smile shutter and face detection (so hopefully you’ll catch shiny happy people in your photos), intelligent scene recognition, 30mm wide angle lens, and a range of body colours – silver, black, blue, pink and green, depending on the model.

The Cyber-shot S950 is a 10.1-megapixel camera using one of Sony’s own lenses. It shares many of the features of the W models, including 4x optical zoom. It’s available in silver, black and pink.

All three models come with a 2.7 inch LCD screen (the W series are TFT LCD screens) and SteadyShot.

Nothing spectacular, but not shoddy cameras either. Available in the UK from next month, with pricing to be confirmed.
