Sony has announced their latest offering in their T series, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T7. The camera is just over a third of an inch thick, their thinnest model yet. The camera also features a 2.5 inch "hybrid" LCD, 5.1 megapixel resolution, 3x optical zoom Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens, and an advanced power management system. The camera will be availabe in May 2005 for around $500. We'll have to keep an eye out for details on how this camera differs from the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T33, as the technical specs look exactly the same. The T7 also features a sliding lens cover and a start up time of under one second. The Sony "Real Imaging Processor circuitry" allows full resolution images to be taken approximately one second apart. Sony claims that the power management system, including the "InfoLithium " battery, can take 180 shots per charge. The camera is also able to shoot 640x480 movies at 30 frames per second and can be stored on Memory Stick PRO Duo media. The package will include the camera, a 32MB Memory Stick Duo, battery, connector block and external battery charger.
