Sony's latest addition to the Cyber-shot family is now shipping with a touch screen display.

The DSC-T50 screen has a whole three inches of scratch-resistant finger pad, which has "intuitive" menu options that allow for fewer physical buttons on the camera body.

As the top of the range in the T-series, it has a 7 Megapixel CCD imager, 3x optical zoom and 56 MB of internal memory. It is also supplied with Stamina InfoLithium batteries, which take up to 400 shots per full charge for the DSC-T50. It offers "Super SteadyShot" optical image stabilisation to minimise blur caused by shaky hands.

The Cyber-shot DSC-T50 camera ships in October for about $500 and will be available in red, black or silver. ®
