Sony has released an extremely small 5.1 megapixel camera that is just over one third-of-an inch thick. The DSC-T7 sports a 2.5-inch LCD screen, 3x Optical Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens, MPEG-VX fine mode recording at 640×480. The sleek thin body is what caught my attention, it packs a lot of camera into such a small body and Sony is definitely playing that card.
Sony states that the ultra-compact camera represents a milestone in ingenious design. There are already ultra-thin cameras on the market, but none as thin as this so it will be sure to turn some heads. Sony is also claiming the camera’s image quality is equally as impressive as its design, let’s hope the Cyber-Shot T7 is what they say it is.
The NP-FE1 InfoLithium battery that powers the DSC-T7 should last for around 180 shots, it can be recharged through the supplied recharger block. Other features include a 1cm macro mode, 1 shot per second burst mode, and mult-shot shooting modes. It accecpts Memory Stick PRO Duo cards and will come supplied with a useless 32MB card.
Expect to see the DSC-T7 on shelves this May for around $500 USD.
