These models all showed up as rumors last week so we skipped right over (becuase standard camera rumors aren’t too exciting), but now they appear to be the real deal.The DSC-W100 (picutred above) and W70 are two high-end compact models.
The DSC-W100 is 8 megapixels with a manual exposure mode. It has extended controla for up to 46 steps of adjustable shutter speeds (30 – 1/1000 sec.), two steps of aperture control, and a 1250 ISO. The DSC-W70, 7.2 megapixels, has a maximum ISO setting of 1000. The W100 model features 64MB of internal memory while the W70 has 58MB and both accept Memory Stick Duo media cards that can hold up to four GB of data.
Both cameras have a 2.5″ LCD screen, a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3x zoom lens, MPEG1 movie recording, high-light sensitivity settings, and a mode dial to quickly switch among photo, video, and preview. Both cameras snap up to 360 shots on a full charge.
