Sony has announced new Cyber-shot® DSC-T500 model enhancing it with high-definition movie recording capability. Users get to shot up to 10-megapixel stills and full-screen 720p movie recording at 30 frames per second (3x higher resolution than standard-definition movies). The model also uses AVC/H.264 codec for video compression and stereo audio – known for its high compression rate producing high-quality video as well as small file sizes that are easy to download, upload and share. T500 is extensible with a Memory Stick® media card (media sold separately), which now has capacities up to 16 GB. Detailed specs are as following; wide (16:9), 3.5-inch touch panel LCD screen, Carl Zeiss 5x optical zoom lens with a wide field of view (33 – 165 mm, 35 mm equivalency), Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization and high sensitivity settings up to ISO3200. Sony DSC-T500 will ship in elegant black with a brushed metal finish in late September for about $400. Pre-orders begin on Aug. 29 at www.sonystyle.com.
