Today we met Sony's new flagship DSLR, the a99: A professional-grade, full-frame sensor camera that gives all the rest a run for their money. With that in mind, we'll just call the Sony Cyber-Shot RX1 "Honey I Shrank the Full-Frame". Yes, it's freaking crazy. It's potentially brilliant too. » 9/12/12 12:00am 9/12/12 12:00am

The Best Rugged, Waterproof Camera

Tough, waterproof point-and-shoot cameras are supposed to be awesome. Small enough to fit in your pocket. Submersible to depths of 40 feet. Able to survive drops from heights above a man's head. » 6/07/12 10:00am 6/07/12 10:00am

Sony's new glass-faced TX200V is a decidedly opulent stab at something we've been asking for around here: a waterproof camera that doesn't sacrifice optics and design. It's just that it does it at a pretty painful price point. » 1/30/12 11:25am 1/30/12 11:25am

Sony's Cybershot TX55 Shoots Photos and Video Simultaneously (With…

There's potentially a lot to dig in Sony's TX-55: Like, it's only 12.2mm thin and there's a 3.3-inch OLED touchscreen. More importantly: It'll let you snap nearly full-res photos while shooting HD video, and Sony's promising full-res, pixel-perfect virtual zoom up to 10x. » 7/25/11 12:01am 7/25/11 12:01am

Sony Cybershot H55: Big 10x Zoom, Small(ish) Camera

Sony's other new camera is the H55, which goes for the "stuffing a fat zoom lens into a tiny body" party trick (like Nikon's S8000). It's a 10x zoom, starting at a 25mm wide-angle. (I'm curious to see what kind of lens distortion we might get here, if any.) » 2/17/10 11:00pm 2/17/10 11:00pm

Sony's Cybershot Exmor Ad Is Laughably Unfair

The best part is, I don't even know to whom. Future camera buyers? Other cameras? To Sony's own Exmor-equipped point-and-shoots, which got this instead of a respectable marketing campaign? In any case, this is dumb. Let us count the ways! » 8/07/09 8:20pm 8/07/09 8:20pm
