A handful of new compact cameras from Sony are heading their way into stores in March. Part of their CyberShot range, the WX70 and WX50 are slim, pocketable cameras perfectly friendly to beginners. Sharing many features, both measure 92.2 x…

Sony planning 3G-connected Cyber-shot digital camera?

Rumblings over on the gdgt blog are suggesting that Sony could be readying a 3G-enabled Cyber-shot point-and-shoot digital camera. With an embedded 3G modem, the camera would be able to geo-tag and upload photos to the web and social networks…

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

Sony 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…

CES 2009: Sony Cybershot G3 – Wi-Fi camera with built-in browser

Gosh, this is rather nifty. Sony’s new Cybershot G3 camera has an inbuilt web browser! Eat that, Eye-Fi. You can log on to a wireless hotspot, and surf the web to your heart’s content. Disclaimer – depending on the sites your heart wants to render, it may not end up 100% content.

Sony provides a “Easy Upload” homepage, with quick links to Shutterfly, Picasa, Dailymotion, Photobucket and YouTube (no Flickr?). It’ll store your login information, too, so you don’t have to type it in on the 3.5″ touchscreen every time. But what about the camera itself? It’s got a 10 megapixel sensor, 4x optical zoom and Face Detection, along with 4GB of internal storage. Available right now, for $500 (£330).

YouTube Hits: Latest Sony advert, 'Foam City'


Last week we speculated on what the next advert for Sony would look like, with a video set in London being our top pick.

Sadly, Sony didn’t choose the indie London video maker to direct their latest campaign for their Handycam and Cybershot ranges, instead sticking with their tried and tested agency which created the three previous advertisements. This last one, ‘Foam City’, required 16 hours of filming in the centre of Miami, which was filled with 460 million litres of foam, enough to fill an Olympic…

Shiny Video Review: Sony Ericsson C702i and C902i mobile phones


I have something to confess about this video – the C702i and C902i phones shown in the video aren’t actually working units, they’re just plastic models that Sony Ericsson sent us, so we could show you what they’ll look like in 360 degrees.

They’re part of Sony Ericsson’s Cybershot range, both HSDPA-enabled, with 3.2-megapixel and 5.0-megapixel sensors…

3GSM: Sony Ericsson stand fails to excite

Shiny Susi laments the lack of any new Sony Ericsson goodies at 3GSM. That’s because it got a little over excited last week and revealed all its news in London before the Barcelona gig even kicked off! Check out last…
