Sony Japan announced today the new DSC-T2, an 8Mpix compact digital camera with a 4GB internal memory and a 2.7" touch panel display.
The highlights of Sony's new Cybershot include a 4GB internal storage memory, the newly developed "Smile Shutter" technology which help users to shoot better pictures when people smile as well as "Face Scheme" feature that automatically focuses on people's face rather than any other elements appearing on a picture.
An album folder feature helps organise and access thousands of photos in the camera, with images viewed in chronological order and displayed in a calendar.
The camera also has a 'favourites' folder for instant retrieval of pictures, while the 'sharemark' folder can store those photos and videos deemed worthy for sharing beyond the camera onto the web.
The camera is pre-loaded with Sony PMB Portable software that automatically runs when the device is connected to a compatible PC via a USB cable. The software lets users publish photos and videos directly to popular web sharing sites, such as Crackle, Flickr, Photobucket, Shutterfly and YouTube.
Other features include an ISO range going up to ISO 3200 for increased sensitivity in dark environments and a 2.7" touchscreen LCD display. The camera comes with an 8.1Mpix CCD, Carl Zeiss lens and can be connected to HD TV sets in order to output high-definition (1920 x 1080 p) still images.
Sony did not provide pricing details for the new DSC-T2. It is expected to ship in December at an estimated price of $350.
