Sony has unveiled a device that will allow users to take full advantage of the respective HDTVs’ features. The new Cyber-shot T500 is actually capable of recording video clips at a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution (known as 720p) and then displaying them directly on a TV screen. The movie function is based on the MPEG4 AVC/H.264 codec for video compression and stereo audio. Benefits of the format include high-quality video as well as small file sizes that are easy to download, upload and share.
The Cyber-shot digital camera has been equipped with a 10.1-megapixel 1/2.3 type Super HAD CCD sensor, as well as a Carl Zeiss 5x optical zoom lens. In order to ensure that the images or video clips have a good level of clarity, the device even sports an image stabilization system, Double Anti-Blur with Optical SteadyShot, complemented by Clear RAW Noise Reduction, for good quality photos even in low-light conditions. The camera can continuously record a video clip up to 10 minutes in length. It can hold hours of clips by expanding the camera’s capacity with a Memory Stick media card. It also features a dual photo and video capture mode. Simply press the photo button while in movie mode and capture up to three photos with no recording interruption.
Sony’s new T500 sports a Face Detection system, which ensures that people’s faces in the scene are in sharp focus and have the exactly right level of exposure. Up to eight faces can be tracked at a time, users being able to select the respective faces by simply touching them on the 3.5-inch wide Clear Photo LCD Plus with touchscreen. The T500 camera connects to a compatible HD television via an HDMI cable. Photos and videos can be enjoyed as slide shows in high definition for a cinematic experience. Subjects can take center stage as slide-shows move through sophisticated pans, fades and wipes.
It will ship in elegant black with a brushed metal finish in late September for about $400. It comes with Picture Motion Browser software for easy organizing and viewing of images.
