Sony has announced two new Cyber-Shot compact cameras, the W830 and W810.
Both cameras feature a 20.1 megapixel sensor, and ZEISS lenses. The W830 features an 8x optical zoom, while the W810 features 6x.
Beauty Effect means that you can retouch minor blemishes on camera to make sure you are looking your best. This is in addition to an extended range of Picture Effects.
The new models also offer the opportunity to shoot stunning 360 degree Sweep Panorama shots, giving an entirely new perspective on your surroundings and feature an advanced flash which optimally controls ISO sensitivity so users can light faraway subjects to really bring their pictures to life.
The DSC-W830 combines the brilliance of ZEISS optics and a BIONZ processor with a 20.1 megapixel CCD sensor for beautifully detailed photographs in a sleek and compact body. Optical SteadyShot technology keeps blur from camera shake to a minimum and Optical SteadyShot Active Mode used in conjunction with electronic image stabilisation means video is incredibly smooth. The camera body has been updated to an advanced design and a metallic finish brings out the vibrancy of four available body colours.
With the addition of a front grip and metallic hairline-style finish, the W810 has a truly premium feel in the hand and a dedicated movie button on the rear means that it’s even simpler and quicker to start shooting HD video.
Both the Cyber-Shot W830 and W810 are available to pre order now on the Sony website. The W830 is available in black, silver, pink and violet, and the W810 is available in black, silver and pink.
Both cameras will go on general sale in February 2014. The W810 will be exclusively available from Dixons, Sony Centres and the Sony website.
