In place of the more traditional button array, the new T50 adds a touch-screen interface, a first among T-series models. As the upgrade to the T30, the T50’s equally-sized 3-inch, scratch-resistant, 230,000 pixel Sony Clear Photo Plus LCD is borrowed from the previous model but now includes the added touch screen functionality.
The Sony DSC-T50 carries over the same megapixel count and a non-extending, 3x optical zoom lens from the T30. Like the previous model, the camera comes with Sony’s Super SteadyShot technology for optical image stabilization to reduce hand shake. However the new model does tote a slightly lesser, but still reasonably generous 56 MB of internal memory.
T50 users can create "personal narratives," according to Sony’s press release, with the built-in slideshow effects. The musical slideshows have pan, wipe, and fade effects for playback.
With the included Stamina InfoLithium batteries, the camera can purportedly take 400 shots per charge, according to the release. The camera is compatible with optional Memory Stick Duo or Memory Stick PRO Duo cards.
Eager consumers can preorder the Cyber-shot T50 at www.sonystyle.com/T50 starting September 12.
