Sony Cyber-shot G1

Updated with LCD photo Sony rounded out its camera announcements today by revealing the Cyber-shot G1. While the camera itself is relatively modest at 6 megapixels, the design emphasizes features rarely seen in other models. The G1 uses a 3.5-inch LCD with 921,000-pixel resolution -- one of the largest ever for a camera, according to its creator. The extra detail improves several of the equally unique software features, including photo slideshows with music soundtracks, a more user-friendly interface, and a dynamic search system that can find photos by color, face, or framing.

A first for the Cyber-shot range is integrated Wi-Fi. The wireless link allows sharing between cameras and other devices that fit the Digital Living Network Alliance standard. To this end, the camera also contains 2GB of internal memory as well as support for Memory Stick Duo cards as large as 8GB, ensuring that the camera can keep files well after a photo session.

Capturing footage is suitably high-end, Sony says. Image stabilization is present to correct shots from the 3X optical zoom lens. Still shots can be taken at up to a moderate ISO 1000 native sensitivity, but the camera will also record 640x480 MPEG-4 videos with sound.

Sony plans to launch the camera in April at a price of $600; though high for a point-and-shoot, the company believes the extra features will persuade those looking for added multimedia features.
