Details emerge on Sony's DSC-W90, W200 digital cameras


The big PMA 07 trade show is still weeks away, but we seem to be already getting a pretty good idea of what Sony will be showing off, first with word of its 7.2 megapixel DSC-W80 getting out earlier today, and now with details on two additional models appearing on's discussion forums before not-so-mysteriously disappearing. Thankfully, good 'ol Google Cache has preserved all the relevant information so you won't have to wait until March to satisfy your curiosity. Apart from the difference in megapixels, with 12 on the W200 and 8 on the W90, the two cameras appear to be virtually identical, each boasting a 3x optical zoom, 2.5-inch LCD, Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar optics, Sony's trademark SteadyShot and Face Recognition features, ISO settings up to 3200 and, perhaps most notable, HDMI outputs. Unfortunately, there's no pics of either camera, although they'll apparently be similar in design to the W55 (pictured here), only with a "finer," "more beautiful" case. There's also no word on price or availability, although that should be revealed at the official PMA launch next month.
