Sony unveiled 3 new digital cameras at the CES 2009 with the Sony Cyber-shot S950, W210 and W220.
Available in a choice of silver, pink or black finishes, the easy-to-use Cyber-shot S950 features a 10.1MP sensor and a 2.7 inch screen.
Originally introduced on high-end Cyber-shot models, enhanced Face Detection can track up to eight faces in a scene, fine-tuning focus and exposure for beautiful portraits. SteadyShot image stabilisation compensates for camera-shake. In tandem with a special High Sensitivity mode (max. ISO 3200), it’s the key to crisp, beautiful images – especially when you’re shooting indoors or in low light without a tripod.
The Sony Cyber-shot S950 will be shipping in February.

Sporting a high resolution of 12.1 effective megapixels, the Cyber-shot W220 and W210 feature a top-quality Carl Zeiss lens with 4x optical zoom to bring your favourite subjects closer. Both models also feature SteadyShot image stabilisation (W220: Optical SteadyShot). Coupled with high sensitivity (max ISO 3200), this reduces camera shake for crisper pictures when you’re shooting handheld without a tripod.

Smile Shutter captures more happy moments and is great fun to use, it automatically fires the shutter when someone smiles. Adjustable to prioritise children’s or adults’ smiles, it’s perfect for relaxed, informal portraits. Smile Shutter also works in conjunction with Face Detection. This fine-tunes focus, exposure, white balance and skin tones for beautiful portraits.

Both new W-Series models also feature Intelligent Scene Recognition for simpler shooting in difficult conditions. This automatically adjusts camera settings for best results in a range of commonly-encountered situations like backlit scenes or twilight portraits.

Detail-packed pictures can be enjoyed on the large, clear 2.7-inch LCD screen. High Definition slideshows with music add an extra dimension of fun to viewing your shots - either on the LCD screen or a connected BRAVIA television. PhotoTV HD means even more vibrant, colourful images when the camera is connected to a compatible BRAVIA TV (requires optional HD cable).
The Sony Cyber-shot W210 and W220 are available from February 2009.
