The Cyber-shot DSC-H200 is Sony’s latest super zoom digital camera. The Japanese company says that the camera’s DSLR-like styling and grip design are modelled after its Alpla line of interchangeable lens cameras. Instead of li-ion rechargeble battery, the shooter is powered by four AA batteries that can be easily obtained in shops around the world.
The Sony H200 comes equipped with a 20.1 Megapixel Super HAD CCD sensor and a 26x optical zoom Sony lens. To capture blur-free images, it includes Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with 2-way Active Mode to correct camera shakes, both vertically and horizontally, even when you are walking. It is a bit disappointed that the H200 doesn’t support Full HD video recording, but only 1280×720 HD movie shooting. It includes Picture Effects for adding creative touch and Beauty Effect for fine-tuning skin tons. Other features include Intelligent Auto mode, D-Range Optimizer, Tracking Focus, 360 Sweep Panorama, Face Detection and Blink Detection, Smile Shutter as well as In-camera editing.
The 26x zoom Cyber-shot comes with a 3-inch large LCD display. It uses MS Duo and SD/SDHC memory cards. It will be released in March for $249.99.
