Cyber-shot W Series 2007

Accompanying the release of the H- and T-series, Sony on Tuesday expanded its Cyber-shot line to include a trio of cameras in the W series. At the forefront is the W200 (pictured): the camera is the first compact point-and-shoot to claim a true 12.1 megapixels, delivering shots as large as 4000x3000. The 8.1-megapixel W90 and 7.2-megapixel W80 also stand as improvements over the earlier line, according to Sony.

More details and a gallery can be found after the break.

All three also bring with them the HD output support of the other new Sony cameras introduced today, letting them plug in through a component cable to an HDTV and to deliver live previews of photos for a new Sony photo printer. Similarly, all three share 3X optical zoom with image stabilization, ISO 3200, and a 2.5-inch LCD. The W80 and W90 will be ready in March at prices of $250 and $300 respectively; a special W80 kit with a TV docking cradle, remote, and the previously mentioned printer ships in April at a price of $400. The flagship W200 appears in May at a cost of $400.
