Sony W180 and W190

Sony today had a rare Europe-first introduction today that launched two basic pocket Cyber-shot cameras, the W180 and W190. Either is meant for simplicity and has a slider to toggle between still photo and movie modes rather than a mode dial. They also have image stabilization, ISO 3,200 light sensitivity and Sony's more recent face detection, which tracks up to eight faces to keep them in focus.

A 3X optical zoom lens and a 2.7-inch preview LCD are also common on both cameras. The two differ chiefly through resolution, with the W180 sporting 10.1 megapixels and the W190 climbing to 12.1. Both should ship to Europe as of July; Sony hasn't said if or when either camera is due within the US.
