Sony develops Full-Circle 360° Camera Module


Dennis Hissink : 2003-12-10 00:10:23
Until now, taking a 360° panorama with a normal lens has required taking multiple shots while rotating the camera slowly and then combining ("stitching") those shots together to form the panorama. In contrast, the 360° full-circle lens allows the full 360° surroundings of the camera to be imaged at the same time with a single lens. Sony has now developed a camera module that uses this 360° full-circle lens, and is releasing as commercial products both a camera module that uses a 380K-pixel, 30 fps CCD that outputs a ring-shaped image as a composite video signal as well as a high-resolution camera module that uses a 1.28 MP, 7.5 fps CCD with a built-in panorama expansion processing function.


Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T1: Extensive first impression


Mark Peters : 2003-11-21 14:11:16
In October Sony introduced one of her latest assets: the completely newly designed Cyber-shot DSC-T1 camera. This striking model has every potential to start a completely new line of design cameras from the stable of Sony. The DSC-T1 puts in a high stake: it sets the tone with a resolution of 5 Megapixels and a built-in 3x optical zoom. LetsGoDigital has this pre-production model, of which there is only 1 in Holland at this moment, in the house for a short while. We take the opportunity to give you an enhanced first impression of this new showpiece from Sony. The following article is based on a pre-production model camera, the impressions that I got from this camera are therefore based on a camera that has not reached the final status yet.


Sony USA unveils DSR-PD170 DVCAM camcorder


Mark Peters : 2003-11-13 00:04:24
Sony has introduced the DSR-PD170 compact camcorder to its DVCAM line of professional video equipment, the fastest-growing professional video format with more than 400,000 units sold worldwide. The new DSR-PD170 builds on the legacy of its predecessor model, the DSR-PD150, the overwhelming choice of video professionals in applications ranging from corporate and educational production to ENG/EFP, television and independent cinema production. "The DSR-PD170 distinguishes itself with the addition of several performance and ergonomic enhancements, many of which are the direct result of customer feedback," said Robert Ott, vice president of professional audio and video products for Sony Electronics' Broadcast and Production Systems Division.


Sony brings world's smallest 5MP camera - DSC-T1


Dennis Hissink : 2003-10-22 14:35:00
Inspired by Casio and Minolta? Who knows, but at first sight it seems Sony has taken the best ingredients from the ultra slim cameras and added their wish list and 'Sony" specialties to them resulting into the world's smallest 5 Megapixel camera. The new DSC-T1 has a special design and features a Carl-Zeiss Vario-Tessar internal optical zoom lens. Internal optical zoom lens you said? Yes, by designing a special lens construction (like we have seen before with the DiMAGE X series) Sony was able to create a very slim body. The internal optical zoom lens has the advantage of a much quicker start-up time and a "full-proof" lens protection. Beside the internal 3x optical Carl-Zeiss zoom lens the DSC-T1 features a 5.1 Megapixel CCD.

Dennis Hissink : 2003-10-22 13:37:59
Today Sony USA announced a new Cyber-shot camera, the DSC-U40. This Ultra slim designed 2 Megapixel camera is a new member of the U-series. First we had the DSC-U10 and before we know it we are looking at a complete line of U-cameras. This DSC-U40 is another new Sony camera that is supporting the Memory Stick Duo and Memory Stick PRO Duo. This smaller form factor is starting to gain its share among the Sony cameras and according to prognoses of one of the leading flash manufacturers it will become a major player in the upcoming years. The new DSC-U40 will be available in different colours although we don't have information on the availability in Europe yet. I hope to get some more up-to-date information this day.
