Sony Cyber-shot W80

Sony may have inadvertently previewed two of the Cyber-shot cameras it will introduce at next month's PMA expo, according to leaked information posted at online stores. Both the W80 and W90 should top the W70 in the point-and-shoot camera line, with the W90 boosting the sensor depth of the W70 and W80 from 7.2 to 8.1 megapixels. Both of the newer cameras have 3X optical zoom lenses, 2.5-inch LCDs, and extreme ISO modes as high as 3200 for reducing blur at night or in fast-motion shots.

The key differences between models will be sensors and memory, according to the leaks: beyond sharper imagery, the W90 will also sport 56MB of internal memory instead of the W80's 31MB. The higher-end model is expected to ship in black or silver for 349 ($458) in Europe by March, and should be available in North America as well. The simpler W80 will follow in late April for 280 ($368).
