Sony has announced 3 new CyberShot cameras to its Ultra-Thin T-Series line, one of which is the DSC-TX200V digital camera. This new release features a 3.3″ Xtra Fine Tru-Black OLED touch screen on the back and a reinforced glass design on the front, similar to that of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s smartphones.


Equipped with an 18.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, which is currently the highest-resolution sensor on a point-and-shoot camera, this new CyberShot is also waterproof up to 5 meters, dust proof, and freeze proof. Included in the gadget’s features are 9 total Picture Effects, Extra High Sensitivity Technology for low-light shooting, 10x virtual zoom via Clear Zoom Technology, full HD movie shooting capability,  and Dual Record able to capture 12 megapixel still images while taking video. The Sony DSC-TX200V camera will be available in silver, red, and violet for an estimated retail price of $500 USD (approximately Php 21,500). In the same month, Sony will also be releasing two other lesser-priced CyberShot cameras, the DSC-WX70 and the DSC-WX50.
