Sony fires two new Cyber-shots

Sony gave it both barrels today with the introduction of two new still digital cameras to its Cyber-shot range. “The Cyber-shot T77 is the world’s slimmest camera to feature 4x optical zoom and optical image stabilisation,” a Sony suit told us. “Meanwhile, the Cyber-shot T700 boasts a 4GB hard drive for storage of a massive 40,000 photos.”

Sony said both cameras had been designed with the eye-catching style
that people expect of Sony products, and both are bursting with amazing
features to help you take great pictures.

Here’s the company’s official word on both models:

Cyber-shot T77 – little camera, big personality

“At just 15mm thin, the super-svelte Cyber-shot T77 will fit in the
pocket of even the skinniest of jeans. It’s the slimmest camera ever to
feature 4x optical zoom and optical image stabilisation, so whilst its
diminutive size is impressive, it’s the pin sharp images you can
capture at the touch of a button that will bowl you over.

The impressive zoom capability is complemented by 10.1-megapixels,
3-inch touchscreen LCD, Smile Shutter technology for automatic capture
of smiling faces, and Face Detection and Anti-blink technology to make
sure everyone looks perfect. All-in-all it’s the friendliest little
camera you’ll come across.

The Cyber-shot T77 comes in five vibrant colours; midnight black, mauve, apple green, chocolate brown and silver.”


Cyber-shot T700 – your life in pictures

“The Cyber-shot T700 offers the best possible image quality
and the latest technology to easily share images after shooting. The
massive 4GB in-built memory provides enough space for 40,000 images,
making the T700 a portable photo album. The 3.5-inch 921K dot LCD
screen allows the user to view images in stunning high resolution, and
the Sharemark technology makes uploading images to photo-sharing sites
incredibly easy. The T700 is perfect for students wanting to document
their gap year travels, families not wanting to miss a moment of
children growing up, or that last-minute night out with friends.

This new camera also boasts 10.1-megapixels and a host of Sony
favourite features, including Smile Shutter, Face Detection and
Anti-blink technology. It will be available in a choice of colours -
gunmetal grey, silver, candy pink, raspberry red and champagne


Both models can be slotted inside a new marine housing that means users can capture the action above and below the water.

The Cyber-shot T77 and Cyber-shot T700 will be available from September 2008, with prices to be confirmed.
