    Adding to their slim T line of digital cameras, Sony has announcedthe Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 digital camera. While not as fully spec'ed as the previously announced T30, the T10 is also coming in about $100 less. In addition to the more attractive sticker price, the T10 will be available in four colors: pink, white, black and silver. TheT10 will be available in August for around $400.

    They have also announced the GPS-CS1 GPS receiver that, along with your Sony camera and software, can tag your images with your latitude and longitude. The GPS-CS1 will be available next month for around $150.

    The T10provides 7.2 megapixelsof resolution. A 2.5 inch LCD with 230K pixels provides a slightly smaller, but same resolution screen as the T30. The Carl Zeiss lens has a 3x optical zoom with a 35mm equivalent focal length of 38-114mm.

    Another great feature is Sony's Super SteadyShot image stabilization system. In addition to the optical image stabilization, the T10 can shoot at sensitivities up to ISO 1000, allowing for faster shutter speeds to capture moving subjects.

    As far as battery life, Sony claims that theT10 will get250 shots (CIPA standards), which is quitebit less than the 420 shots that the T30 is supposed to get. The T10 does have 56MB of internal memory and accepts Memory Stick Duo (and Pro Duo) media.

    Sony GPS-CS1 GPS Receiever

    In another global announcement, Sony has introduced the GPS-CS1 GPS receiver. Bymatching upthe time stamps on your imageswith the GPS log fromthe GPS-CS1, the included GPS Image Tracker software can attach a latitude and longitude to each image.

    Using the Picture Motion Browser software that has been bundled with Sony cameras and camcorders since July, each tagged image can become a "pushpin" on a map. The mapping website, with maps provided by Google Maps, can show you where you've been when you had taken a particular picture.

    The 3.5 inch long, 2 ounce GPS-CS1 comes with a handy carabiner to attach it easily to a backpack or belt loop. A supplied USB cable allows you to download the GPS log to your computer.

    Look for the GPS-CS1 next month (September) for around $150.

    I don't know what I like more, the stylish pink color or the GPS feature. The latter is pretty sweet, though I can't imaging most shooters are going to care that much. The design is pretty nice, as is typical for Sony.

    I'm a little confused on this GPS device. It simply records a log of your longitude and latitude and then when you synch it with your PC + Camera it uses the time to correlate the position of the picture? I wonder how much room this device has for logging -- it's obviously using flash to store that somewhere. Seems a little cumbersome to me and useful only for the real adventurous (like the position on earth where you take a high school graduation photo really matters), but this is probably a sign of things to come in a couple of years -- that GPS will be in some cameras.
