Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P150
today introduced the Cyber-shot DSC-P150, which it bills as the world's smallest 7.2 megapixel camera. The DSC-P150 measures just one inch thick and takes photos with a resolution of 3072x2304 and features Sony's Real Imaging Processor that speeds up start-up and shot-to-shot times while improving focus and exposure. The P150 also features a Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar 3x optical zoom lens. Shipments of the camera are expected to begin in September for $500; an optional Cyber-shot Station, which functions as a camera dock, will sell for $80. [Site not updated.]
The camera also offers 310 shots per charge of the InfoLithium battery, features a 1.8-inch LCD screen, supports telephoto and wide-angle conversion lenses, has manual flash and exposure settings as well as nine preset scene modes, and includes 32MB Memory Stick.
