Sony Digital Cameras Or Sony CyberShot Offer Great Value
DSLRs And Compacts That Challenge Their Competitors
Sony digital cameras are great value for money compared to other major
brands such as Nikon and Canon. Their DSLR range has so many great
features built-in as standard such as Image Stabilization and Tilting
Screens. They are also much cheaper than their competitors.
Sony has always been considered a global leader of home electronics,
home entertainment, and portable gadgets including their fine lineup of
Sony digital cameras.
They have achieved great success with their TV range offering fantastic
displays and visuals that never fail to impress viewers.
One of the biggest challenges that Sony faces is that they need to make
sure the quality of their digital cameras equals the standards of their
televisions and audio equipment.
The Sony HDTVs may be capable of displaying high quality pictures and
videos, but poorly processed digital images and videos can ruin the
Also, Sony faces huge competition from other camera manufacturers that
dominated the market even before digital technology went mainstream.
To combat the competition, Sony unleashed the Cyber-shot lineup of
digital cameras. All Cyber-shot digital cameras can be recognized with
the logo and DSC (Digital Still Camera) prefix on all of the models
regardless of the series.
What makes a Sony digital camera so unique is the number of different
models included in each series. This can sometimes be confusing for
customers, so I will explain each series individually to allow for a
All of the Point-and-Shoot cameras are capable of taking at least 10
megapixel images and above so megapixels should never be a major issue
when choosing a camera as 10 megapixels are more than enough.
Affordable models start with the S series with the cheapest model just
over $100. These models are followed by the slightly more expensive W
series which are created with a special coating and use a wide angle
On the top of the point-and-shoot chain in terms of price is a very
special digital camera in the G series which is the DSC-G3. This is
only the second G model with the first specializing in face tracking.
The G3 pulls off another huge technology by offering wireless Internet
connectivity and a large 3.5" touch-screen display. All of the S and W
models are geared for novice photographers.
Ultra Slim Cameras
If you ever see a T model, you can expect that camera to be an ultra
slim camera that may not have the Carl Zeiss lens, but still
incorporates plenty of useful image enhancing features to make every
shot still look good. This lineup of cameras are mainly for people who
are looking for a stylish camera as these ultra slims come in several
The reason why these cameras are a bit more expensive is not just
because of their slimness, but due to the fact that all of the T models
have a touch-screen LCD display starting at 3.0 inches. Higher-end
models like the DSC-T900 support HD video and have larger touch-screen
You won’t find much of a selection with the current lineup of advanced
cameras which fall under the H series. These cameras look a lot more
like the classic film cameras, but have advanced optics for superior
They are still pretty easy to use just like the
Point-and-Shoot cameras, but require a camera bag to carry around with
you. These cameras are best known for their higher optical zooming
capabilities and advanced video capturing options.
The newest model of
the lineup which is the DSC-HX1 introduces the Sweep Panorama mode
which is a first in the DSC series. This feature can capture wide-angle
views of up to 224 degrees.
Sony’s lineup of digital cameras won’t be complete without a good set
of DSLR cameras. Unlike the rest of the cameras previously mentioned,
these DLSR cameras do not have the Cyber-shot logo and are identified
as "A" models.
There are currently 7 "A" models being offered right now
each with unique features. Their flagship model is the A900 which is
the perfect choice for creative professional photographers that want to
take pictures at extremely high resolutions. The A900 can handle 24.6
megapixel images which far exceeds other DSLR cameras.
More Sony Camera Information
Most of the popular Sony digital cameras are best known for taking HD
quality images and videos so they look great on their BRAVIA TVs. For
that reason, easy connectivity with these TVs is supported to make it
simple for sharing. In addition, many models also have several
in-camera tools that are useful for correcting images without the need
of a computer.
Sony has an impressive collection of digital cameras that are worthy
contenders in the ongoing battle of digital devices. They also offer a
great range of camcorders too. These devices are brilliant for people
who want the
best of both worlds.
You can capture HD video of your favorite events and then print still
frames of the best parts as photographs. Two for the price of one! Just
remember, with all this extra use, your camera battery will flatten
very quickly. Always have a spare Sony camcorder battery available
make sure you never miss that golden moment.

branded home entertainment products are always better off with Sony
