Eight New Sony Cyber-shot Cameras Announced

Sony presents eight new Cyber-shot cameras - the WX series (DSC-WX100), HX series (DSC-HX200V, HX20V, HX10V), W690, TX series (DSC-TX20, TX66), and H series (H90).

The WX100 utilizes the newly-developed Advanced Aspherical (AA) lens which dramatically reduces camera body thickness to 17.5mm while increasing optical performance. Equipped with 10x optical lens, it features an 18.2-megapixel image sensor with the BIONZ image processing engine, ensuring that high quality images are taken with minimal noise.

Offering a 20x optical zoom, an 18.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, Optical SteadyShot and Sony's AA lens element is the HX20V, which includes a new GPS log recording function which allows users to track and log location details of photos captured.

At just 17.5mm thick at its slimmest part, the W690 packs a 16.1-megapixel Super HAD CCD sensor, 10x optical zoom G lens, improved SteadyShot, and 360 Sweep Panorama.

Waterproof, dustproof, shock and low temperature resistant, the TX20 is capable of producing consistent high quality photos and Full HD movies with its 16.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor and Optical SteadyShot under harsh environments.
