Sony's W370 and W350 Cameras Are First CCD Cameras With Sweep Panorama

Sony's announced a glut of new cameras today at CES, but instead of going through all 20-odd of them, I'm only going to show you the best. You deserve the best. Here's two of them, the DSC-W370 and DSC-W350.

The 14-megapixel Cybershot DSC-W370 and DSC-W350 have CCD image sensors with Sweep Panorama for capturing places like the Grand Canyon in one big movement. The W370 takes 243 degree shots and the W350 takes 268-degree shots, with the images coming in 7152 x 1080 size. Both models have 7x zoom lenses, Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, and can record video in 720p (with a HDMI output for connecting to a TV.)

The W350, which takes slighter better Panorama pics, is also Sony's smallest camera for the year. It has a 2.7-inch LCD screen, 26mm lens and 4x optical zoom. The W350 is on sale this month for $200, and the W370 will be on sale a few months later, in March, for $230. [Sony]
