As part of their batch-release of new Cybershots, Sony introduces the 8-megapixel DSC-T20 and DSC-T100, "destined to be the fashionista crowd's favorite party companion," at less than 0.5-inches thick. The T100 is a slight upgrade with its 3-inch LCD screen and 5x optical zoom Carl Zeiss lens, while the T20 sports a 2.5-inch LCD and 3x optical zoom Carl Zeiss lens. Both come with three accessory options for high def photo viewing, all compatible with Sony's VMC-MHC1 HD component cable for an easy connection to an HDTV set or to Sony's CSS-HD1 high definition Cyber-shot Station that includes a bundled component cable and remote. They also offer Super Steady Shot optical image stabilization, up to ISO 3200, and aBionz processing engine, initially used in Sony's Alpha DSLR system, that allows users to "keep snapping for the duration of the party" -- about 340 shots for the T20 and 380 shots for the T100, on a full charge. Keeping with this party-hardy theme, both also feature Sony's face detection technology, automatically adjusting white balance, flash, focus and exposure while identifying up to eight faces in the LCD frame. The color selection, of course, will "match your party gear" with coordinating cases sold separately. The T100 will ship in March for about $400 while the T20 will be available later in April for about $330.
