Security for virtualized datacentres

Sony beefed up its Cyber-shot range of snappers today, revealing a couple of compacts with snazzy sensors geared towards low-light settings.

The Sony Cyber-shot WX70 and WX50 rock up with a 16.2Mp Exmor R Cmos sensor and an improved image processor.

The 25mm lens features a 5x optical zoom and captures 12Mp stills when the camera is in snaps mode, and 1080p HD video when it isn't.

Both cameras boast an ISO range stretching to 12800, promising crisp shots in dimly lit conditions with six-times less noise than predecessors, Sony claimed.

The Sony Cyber-shot WX70 features a 3in touchscreen display, while its sibling, the WX50, clicks into gear with a smaller 2.7in panel. Both will be available this March, with prices yet to be set. ®
