Sony today unveiled two new Cyber-shot digital still cameras with the Sony DSC-TX9 and the DSC-WX5 that are the world's smallest 3D cameras, capturing 3D images with a single lens system using a sweeping motion.

The Sony DSC-WX5 uses the new 3D Sweep Panorama feature, which lets you take panoramic pictures in one press-and-sweep motion. The high-speed burst of frames is stitched together using innovative processing techniques to automatically create detail-packed 3D panoramas. These images can be enjoyed in 2D or stunning 3D on compatible 3D televisions.

Features of the Sony DSC-WX5 include 12.2 megapixel resolution, 2.8-inch LCD screen, Background Defocus, Superior Auto feature, Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 4x zoom lens and AVCHD HD video recording.

The Background Defocus mode feature provides artistic photos like those taken with a DSLR by making it easy to blur the image’s background, putting the emphasis on your subject and creating a bokeh effect. The camera takes two shots, identifies the background and applies a defocus effect keeping your subject crisp and clear in the foreground.

Superior Auto is the world's first auto mode that utilizes multiple shots. While there are other cameras with multi-shot technology, only Sony cameras know when to take multiple shots automatically. Only Superior Auto can evaluate the scene and automatically engage multi-shot technology to get the best shot.

The Sony WX5 will be available for about $300 in (silver and black) starting in September. Shop for Sony W series cameras on Amazon.
