The latest additions to the Sony Cyber-shot range of digital cameras look as good as the sensational images they produce.

If you’re passionate about colourful, high-fashion styling and smart technology, look no further than the Cyber-shot T900 and T90. With slim, good looks, super-size touchscreens and new 720p HD movie recording, there’s no better way to show you’re serious about great images.

The intelligent, compact Cyber-shot W series gains a new range-topping model. The W270 (W290 in USA) offer HD movie recording, plus a powerful Carl Zeiss 5x optical zoom with 28mm wide angle lens to fit more into the scene.

If you need high performance in a compact, go-anywhere package, the Cyber-shot H20 teams a powerful 10x optical zoom range and HD movie recording with purposeful styling.

The easy-to-use S930 offers a great value introduction to the Cyber-shot experience. Available in a choice of silver, black and pink colour options, they’re packed with features like Face Detection and SteadyShot image stabilisation to make sure great images are taken effortlessly

Cyber-shot™ T900 and T90
Ultra-slim looks, breathtaking styling and attention seeking colour choices instantly mark out Cyber-shot T series from other digital cameras.

Just 15.1mm* slim, the T900 is available in a choice of silver and black colour finishes. Even slimmer at just 13.9mm*, the T90 offers silver, black, bronze, pink and blue colour options.

Both T series models are incredibly easy to operate. The 3.5”-inch wide Xtra Fine LCD touchscreen (T900) gives a detail-packed view of your pictures, as well as fingertip control of camera settings. There’s a new Intelligent Auto mode that makes operation simpler than ever. The camera automatically analyses the scene and sets the appropriate settings for the subject, for the best results with any scene.

The powerful BIONZ processor ensures flawless, low-noise images in any shooting situation – from holidays and fun-filled family moments to atmospheric interiors and low-light scenes.

Optical SteadyShot keeps things crisp and clear when you’re shooting handheld in low light, while enhanced Face Detection and Smile Shutter help you get more great smiling portraits without fuss.

Left your camcorder behind? No problem. New 720p HD movie recording captures detail-packed video clips at a smooth 30 frames per second. Up to 60 mins of crisp HD video and stereo sound can be stored on a 4GB MemoryStick™: that’s plenty of time to grab the highlights of a day out or short break. Even movie capture in low light isn’t a problem. The T90 and T900 both offer a high sensitivity movie mode that automatically adjusts exposure for low light movies.

Hook up the Cyber-shot T900 or T90 to any High Definition TV and enjoy the results at home. BRAVIA Sync makes it easy to control big-screen playback of movies and still photos with your BRAVIA TV’s remote.

Cyber-shot™ W270 (Cyber-shot™W290 in USA)
The new compact Cyber-shot W270 puts even more shooting power in your pocket.

Available in a choice of eye-catching colours, Cyber-shot W series is all about uncompromising picture quality and practical, easy to use functions.

With a generous 5x optical zoom range and 28mm wide angle, the Carl Zeiss lens broadens shooting possibilities – from detailed close-ups to panoramic landscapes and fun-filled group shots at parties.

The powerful BIONZ processor ensures pristine, low-noise 12.1 megapixel images plus responsive shooting performance. Coupled with high sensitivity (ISO3200), Optical SteadyShot reduces the effects of camera shake when you’re shooting handheld, especially at dusk or in dimly-lit interiors.

Enhanced Face Detection and Smile Shutter make it easy to capture natural, spontaneous portraits and group shots. 720p HD movie mode shoots smooth HD video clips and stereo sound to enjoy on your HD TV.

The 2.7-inch Clear Photo LCD Plus screen gives a crystal clear, high-contrast view of your pictures and HD video clips, even in bright viewing conditions. Ease of use is enhanced with Intelligent Auto mode that takes care of optimising camera settings to suit any scene.

All new Cyber-shot models include Picture Motion Browser 4.0. The latest version of Sony’s image management application simplifies sorting, viewing and searching through photos and video clips stored on your PC’s hard drive. There’s also a wide range of optional accessories available to help you get even more from your Cyber-shot.

There have been three new designs of soft carry cases introduced to protect the main unit against scratches and dust. The first, a leather case is available in four colours (Black, Red, Brown & White) – LCS-CSVA. The second, a pressed leather case in a different design is also available in four colours (Black, Blue, Green & Pink) – LCS-CSVB and lastly a casual soft carrying case with six colour variations (Black, Green, Silver, Pink, Brown & Blue) – LCS-CSVC.

A newly developed GPS unit kit GPS-CS3KA can put geotag data to pictures taken by Cyber-shot™ , these can then be viewed on maps with Google Earth™ software and uploaded on major web sharing services. The key benefits over the previous model are higher sensitivity, built-in memory card and SD slots and an LCD display for enhanced usage.

The Cyber-shot™ S930 is available from April 2009 at £99. The W270 is available from mid-March 2009 at £239, the T900 and T90 are available from April 2009 at £369 and £289, respectively, and the H20 will also be available from April 2009 at £269.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
