The S730's not exactly cutting edge, but it's got a solid mid-range spec: 2.4in display, 3x optical zoom, Carl Zeiss optics, ISO 1250 sensitivity and anti-shake technology.

There's no face detection, however. Or an optical viewfinder, so it's not best suited for shooting in harsh sunlight.

Sony claimed the S730's bundled alkaline batteries are good for 440 shots.

The Cyber-shot S730 will be available throughout Europe from mid January 2008. Expect to pay around £99.
