Sony slims-down Cyber-shot snappers

Thinnest camera in the world**

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Sony has freshened up its Cyber-shot range with two snappers, one of which the company claims is the world's thinnest camera… well, among models with an anti-shake system function, that is.

Sony Cyber-shot TX55

The Sony Cyber-shot TX55 is a 16.2Mp snapper that measures in at a touch over 12mm thick. It takes MicroSD/SDHC cards up to 16GB and features a 3.3in touchscreen that spans the entire back panel.

The company has also revealed the slightly-thicker 16.2Mp Cyber-shot WX30, which comes with many of the same features, but a smaller 3.0in display.

Both models handle 1080i HD video recording, blur-free zoom and sweep panoramics, as well as 3D effects created by capturing a couple of frames in quick succession and adding depth based on the subsequent evaluation.

The Sony Cyber-shot TX55 and Cyber-shot WX30 will be available from this September. Prices have yet to be confirmed. ®
