    .Sury, in my humble opinion, what JBTaylor referred about the sunburst /glare due to the used lens is not just competing unnecessarily, it's taking over the naturalistic look of the whole shot. The sunburst also is a mechanical effect whereas the rest of the beauty of the scene comes from the natural and living environment. […]

All new Cyber-shot models include Picture Motion Browser 4.0. The latest version of Sony’s image management application simplifies sorting, viewing and searching through photos and video clips stored on your PC’s hard drive. There’s also a wide range of optional accessories available to help you get even more from your Cyber-shot.

There have been three new designs of soft carry cases introduced to protect the main unit against scratches and dust.  The first,a leather case  is available in four colours (Black, Red, Brown & White) – LCS-CSVA.  The second, a pressed leather case in a different design is also available in four colours (Black, Blue, Green & Pink) – LCS-CSVB and lastly a casual soft carrying case with six colour variations (Black, Green, Silver, Pink, Brown & Blue) – LCS-CSVC.

A newly developed GPS unit kit GPS-CS3KA can put geotag data to pictures taken by Cyber-shot™ , these can then be viewed on maps with Google Earth™ software and uploaded on major web sharing services. The key benefits over the previous model are higher sensitivity, built-in memory card and SD slots and an LCD display for enhanced usage.

The Cyber-shot™ S930 is available from April 2009. The W270 is available from mid-March 2009, the T900 and T90 are available from April 2009, the S930 is available from April 2009 and the H20 is available from April 2009.

    That is good, so the W170 is now on $179 in SonyStyle… 😉

    NOTE: the T900 LCD 3.5″ is a HD LCD 921K of resolution, like to a700, but a little bigger.

    Is a good signal that is very probable Sony has resolved the thickness of the LCD HD to 3 and 3.5″.
    So we could to see a in the future a new Alpha with LV and a LCD HD and tilting.
