Sony’s up bright and early today with news of two spanking new compact cams, the Cyber-shot WX1 and Cybershot TX1. Both a re high on life, cramming in enough features to keep even the biggest photography snobs happy. Keep reading and we’ll serve up the latest on these slick new Cyber-shots for you.
Both the Cyber-shot TX1 and Cyber-shot WX1 have got plenty going to sate you need for decent pics without having to splash out on a pricey DSLR. Each one rocks 10.2MP, alongside Sony’s killer sweep panorama mode, so you don’t have to stitch any widescreen pics together.
There’s also an Exmor R CMOS sensor and BINOZ imaging processor, which Sony reckons will offer up top–drawer high speed shooting low noise snaps. There’s ISO 3200 on both the TX1 and WX1.
Hi–def 720p video is also on board, but that’s where the two dinky peepers split. The Cyber-shot WX1 touts a Sony ‘G lens’ with 5x optical zoo, and 24mm wide angle. Meanwhile the TX1 packs in a Carl Zeiss 4x optical zoom and 3in touchscreen round the back, with a sleek new interface.
The TX1 will roll up clad in grey, silver, blue, gold or pink while the WX1 will land in black, silver and gold. Each one will play nice with Sony’s new Party Shot accessory too and both are due to drop in September. Full pricing is coming soon.
