Sony unveiled 5 new Cyber-shot cameras today with the DSC-T900, DSC-T90, DSC-W290, DSC-W230 and DSC-H20.
Sony highlights the new intelligent auto mode found in the new T900, T90, W290 and H20 cameras.
The intelligent auto mode "thinks" for you and detects scene conditions then adjusts settings, especially in difficult lighting scenarios.
Sony has combined three key technologies to make these cameras smarter. Intelligent scene recognition (iSCN) detects up to eight scenes, recognizing objects, faces and lighting conditions (e.g. low light and backlight). Then, in one-thirtieth of a second, it changes the setting to get the best shot.Face detection registers up to eight faces; adjusts focus, exposure, white balance and flash; and detects motion. This intelligent camera combines face detection with iSCN, featuring blink detection. It takes two pictures and saves the one in which the subject’s eyes are the least shut.
The new Sony Cyber-shot cameras will be available for pre-order in March.
The Sony T900 (photo) camera will be available in silver, black, red, and bronze for about $380.
The Sony T90 model will be available in silver, black, pink, blue, and brown for about $300.
The Sony W290 model will be available in silver, black, blue, and bronze for about $250.
The Sony W230 camera will be available in silver, black, blue, and red for about $200.
The Sony H20 camera will be available in black for about $280.
