New Cameras Unveiled
Speaking of smiles, some of Sony’s new models include a feature dubbed “Smile Shutter”, which automatically captures an image when the subject smiles - without having to press the shutter. This function even lets you prioritize adult or child faces to capture photos only when the intended subjects smile.
The 10.1-megapixel DSC-W170 and 8.1-megapixel DSC-W150 models also feature Carl Zeiss 5x optical zoom lenses with wide angles of view, 28 mm - 140 mm and 30 mm - 150 mm, respectively, and 2.7-inch LCD screens along with eye-level viewfinders. Rounding out the W series are the 8.1-megapixel DSC-W130 models and 7.2-megapixel DSC-W120 units with 4x optical zoom and 2.5 inch LCD screens.
GE continues to add to their digital camera portfolio, growing the number of cameras in the line to 15 and adding some fairly unique features into the mix as well, including smile detection, blink detection, upgraded lenses, and LCD screens that adjust to changes in ambient light. One new model, the E1050, adds HDTV, touch-screen and GPS capability.
