Shutterbug and Panasonic are happy to announce the winner of our "Inspirations"
Photo Contest, conducted on the web site Galleries at Jim
Semonik, who resides in central New Jersey, submitted his image and won the
votes of judges and web commentators alike. Jim's shot was taken in Ft.
Lauderdale, Florida. Said Jim, "I saw the boat and took about 60 pictures
of it over two mornings -- the first day was overcast the second was perfect.
I still have 59 other shots from every possible angle."

to his growing love of photography, Jim said, "I had an interest in photography
back in the `70s but marriage, daughters (who had a nasty habit of wanting
to eat!) put hobbies on hold. Digital rekindled my creative spirit and I have
been trying to improve. I started with an HP 2MP camera went to a Fuji 3MP,
then 6 MP and finally took the plunge on a Nikon D50. The kids are grown now
and I love to travel. I get to see some interesting places because of my job
but I fell in love with the Southwest and the Islands. It's probably that
mid-life Jimmy Buffett deal!"

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, at Sony Style® retail stores
and at authorized regional dealers.
