Sony's announced a glut of new cameras today at CES, but instead of going through all 20-odd of them, I'm only going to show you the best. You deserve the best. Here's two of them, the DSC-W370 and DSC-W350.
The 14-megapixel Cybershot DSC-W370 and DSC-W350 have CCD image sensors with Sweep Panorama for capturing places like the Grand Canyon in one big movement. The W370 takes 243-degree shots and the W350 takes 268-degree shots, with the images coming in 7152x1080 size. Both models have 7x zoom lenses, Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation, and can record video in 720p (with an HDMI output for connecting to a TV).
The W350, which takes slighter better Panorama pics, is also Sony's smallest camera for the year. It has a 2.7-inch LCD screen, 26mm lens and 4x optical zoom. The W350 is on sale this month for $US200, and the W370 will be on sale a few months later, in March, for $US230. [Sony]
