SonySony Europe today announces two pocket digital still cameras in its Cyber-shot U range that are close to making the digital still camera an essential lifestyle accessory. First is the DSC-U30, one of the most compact digital still cameras available in its class and the successor to the popular DSC-U20, a model which introduced the concept of the digital still camera as a pocket accessory. Next, the sporty DSC-U60 is the first waterproof pocket digital still camera in the Cyber-shot U range. A host of new features for both models include a hybrid LCD screen, more scene selection functions, enlarged playback and compatibility with Memory Stick PRO. Image resolution is 2 Megapixel and styling is sleek and classic.
The DSC-U60 is the first Cyber-shot U digital still camera to be waterproof. It has all of the qualities of the DSC-U30 in a slightly larger, sporty chassis, and can take shots in water of up to 1.5 metres deep. It is the ideal holiday digital still camera to use when snorkelling, snowboarding, on the beach, or simply at the local pool.

The DSC-U30 is ultra-compact and ultra-stylish and is available in up to four colours - silver, gold, blue and grey*. A reflective disc on the sliding lens cover is cleverly designed to act as a mirror, helping you to easily frame self-portraits.

New features on both digital still cameras make it easy to take great shots in challenging conditions. For example in Playback Mode, Enlarged Playback allows you to check the focus of a shot immediately after it has been taken by enlarging the centre of the image to either 2.5 or 5 times its actual size, a feature which is particularly useful in low light conditions.

New scene settings, Twilight and Active Outdoor, add to the existing Soft Snap, Illumination Snap and Vivid Nature. The Underwater setting on the DSC-U60 makes it easy to shoot when you are having fun in the water without having to worry about the camera set up.

Sony has applied ingenious technology to create a new Hybrid LCD screen that performs as well in bright, outdoor conditions as in indoor or lower light environments. The one-inch, 64,000 pixel screen has a smart way of using both transmitted and reflected light to maintain clarity, thus eliminating the need to switch between viewing modes.

The cameras provide impressive storage capabilities and image transfer is easy, making them an ideal accessory for the connected lifestyle. Both are Memory Stick PRO compatible, giving up to 1GB storage and cable-free transfer to other Memory Stick PRO compatible devices. Both are also USB-equipped and are supplied with software that provides direct image transfer to a PC; this can be done even when the camera batteries are empty as the USB cable provides power for the transfer. Image transfer software, which is supplied and easily installed in a PC, automatically downloads the images and sorts them by date to user specified folders.

The DSC-U30 and DSC-U60 will arrive in shops all over Europe in July.
