It was only a few months ago that we were fielding rumors
about Sony's CyberShot DSC-HX1
, and now we're struggling to keep our credit card at bay each time we waltz by
one in the local camera shop. Today, Sony Insider
has pointed out that the outfit may be readying a new duo to complement the megazoom: the DSC-TX1 and DSC-WX1. If the latest whispers prove legitimate, the TX1 will boast a 10 megapixel sensor, 4x optical zoom, 3-inch LCD, 720p movie mode and a price tag somewhere south of $400. The WX1 should check in as a lower-end model with 10 megapixels, a 5x optical zoom, 2.7-inch LCD and the same 720p movie mode; why exactly it'll be cheaper we're not sure, but that's the good word at the moment. E-tailer Provantage
already has listings for both cameras up, so it seems as if it's just a matter of time before Sony confirms all the good news.
