Sony's new mega-capacity Cyber-shot® DSC-T2 digital camera is an
8-megapixel model that features 4GB of internal memory and can store up to 40,000
VGA-quality photos or 1,000 8 megapixel pictures, eliminating the need to manage
multiple media cards. The camera's album folder makes it easy to organize
and access thousands of photos in-camera. Images can be viewed in chronological
order and displayed in a helpful calendar view. By installing the bundled Picture
Motion Browser software, you can also view images by events like birthdays or
Sunday BBQs.



The "sharemark" folder can store those photos and videos deemed
worthy for sharing beyond the camera onto the web. The T2 model is pre-loaded
with Sony PMB Portable software, a user-friendly application that automatically
runs when the device is connected to a compatible PC via the supplied USB cable.
The software lets you publish photos and videos directly to popular web sharing
sites, such as Crackle, Flickr, Photobucket, Shutterfly and YouTube.



The camera has a new look with a compact silver body; black LCD frame; and a
sliding lens cover available in blue, green, pink, white or black. The Sony
LCS-TWE carrying case is also available in the same colors to match the camera.
Its touch-panel LCD screen replaces small buttons with on-screen icons and a
user-friendly interface to make camera operation fast and simple. You can touch
the screen to select the subject you want to focus on (shooting mode) and where
you want to zoom in (playback mode).



Sony's distinctive "smile shutter" function makes capturing
informal portraits and family snapshots effortless. The function automatically
detects and captures a person smiling without the need to press the shutter.
If there are several people in the frame, you can select the primary subject
for the camera to watch by touching the screen. A sequence of up to six smiling
shots can be taken without the need to manually press the shutter.



Combined with such technologies as face detection, optical image stabilization
and high sensitivity (ISO 3200), the camera is equipped to capture life-like
holiday memories.



The T2 camera can be connected to the TV set via HD component cable or an HD
cradle (both sold separately). Equipped with a built-in slide show function,
the camera lets you view photos, complete with dynamic transitions choreographed
to your choice of programmed music clips or by adding your own.



The Cyber-shot DSC-T2 digital camera will ship in December for about $350. Additional
accessories will include batteries, travel chargers, sports packs and cases.
All can be purchased online at sonystyle.com, at Sony Style® retail stores
(www.sonystyle.com/retail),
and at authorized regional dealers.

Fujifilm has introduced three new models to its digital camera portfolio, including
the FinePix S9000 and FinePix E900 digital cameras - the world's first consumer
level cameras with nine MegaPixel sensors. In addition, Fujifilm's popular S-series
line
now features the new FinePix S5200, offering five MegaPixels with a fully automatic
point-and-shoot feature set.



These three new models will feature Fujifilm's Real Photo Technology, a synergy
of the newly developed RP Processor, the 5th
Generation Super CCD HR sensor and a Fujinon lens that is said to provide many
benefits including reduced noise for sharper pictures, better low-light shooting,
faster operation and higher shutter speeds that minimize blurriness in photos
even at the high ISO setting, as achieved by the FinePix S9000 model.



The FinePix S9000 offers traditional SLR-like styling for serious photo enthusiasts
and Fujifilm's proprietary Super CCD HR (High Resolution) sensor to capture
nine million effective pixels - the first consumer digital camera on the market
to offer such resolution. In addition to increased MegaPixels, the FinePix S9000
features a new 10.7x optical zoom with a 28mm-300 wide-angle equivalent.



According to Fujifilm, users of consumer-level digital cameras found that higher
MegaPixels often meant more noise, resulting in pictures files that were big
enough for enlargements, but often lacking in sharpness. With the FinePix S9000
users are said to be able to capture beautiful digital images with very little
noise at the high ISO settings at full resolution.



Additional features of the S9000 include a tilting LCD screen for shooting from
a variety of angles, the ability to shoot in the RAW file format, dual media
slots, 30 fps video at VGA resolution, hot shoe mount for external flash systems
and ultra high resolution achieved through the electronic viewfinder.



The FinePix E900 adds to Fujifilm's current E-series lineup, providing consumers
with a powerful nine million-pixel sensor in a compact design.



Similar to its predecessors, the FinePix E900 is a point and shoot camera that
expands with users as they broaden their imaging expertise. In addition to a
4x optical zoom and large two-inch LCD screen, the FinePix E900 also caters
to users seeking more advanced features, including mode dial for easy access
to common shooting functions, RAW mode and optional lens adapters. By incorporating
Real Photo Technology, the FinePix E900 can also achieve higher shutter speeds
that minimize blurriness in photos at ISO equivalent settings as high as 800.




Availability

The FinePix S9000 will be available in early September at $699.95. The FinePix
E900 and FinePix 5200 will be available in October at $499.95 and $399.95 respectively.
The FinePix S9000 and S5200 models will ship with four AA alkaline batteries
and the FinePix E900 model comes equipped with 2 NiMH rechargeable batteries.
All three models use Fujifilm's xD-Picture Card(tm) storage media.

The Leica M8 marks the digitization of the famous Leica M line of rangefinder
cameras. The 10+ MP sensor, designed specifically for this camera, has a "native"
speed of 160, with a maximum ISO setting of 2500. Available later this year,
the M8 retains the classic Leica rangefinder look and feel, even down to the
baseplate cover removal for insertion of the memory card. Standard M lenses
made since 1954 will fit the mount, with a 1.33 focal length multiplication
factor. A new lens, the Tri-Elmar 16-21mm, has been introduced with the camera
as well. This, and all lenses made by Leica from July 1, 2006 onwards will have
special 6-bit coding on the bayonet ring, allowing lens data and special processing
instructions to be transferred to the image processor. Lenses made prior to
that date can be retrofitted with the coding, but can be used without it as
well.
