January 7, 2010: Sony has released details of 12 new digicams at this year’s CES show in Las Vegas.
Leading the line-up is the Cyber-shot HX5, a slimline model with a 5.92 x 4.57 mm 10.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor and Sony G lens with 25mm wide angle and 10x optical zoom covering the equivalent of 25-250mm in 35mm format. It sports a 3-inch Clear Photo LCD monitor and can record Full HD (1920 x 1080i) video clips using the efficient AVCHD format. Optical SteadyShot with a new Active Mode is provided to minimise camera-shake and the HX5 comes with an improved Intelligent Sweep Panorama, a step up from the feature first introduced on last year’s Cyber-shot HX1, TX1 and WX1 models. The camera detects objects moving in the field of view as you sweep the camera and compensates for any mis-matching as images are automatically stitched together.

The new Cyber-shot TX7 brings AVCHD 1080i Full HD movie recording to the ultra-slim T-series line-up. The slender body conceals a Carl Zeiss 4x optical zoom lens and 10.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor. The 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD features TruBlack screen technology to minimise reflections and boost contrast for easier viewing outdoors. The Cyber-shot TX7 also features Intelligent Sweep Panorama and has an easy-to-operate user interface.
