Christmas comes early for Sony

Sony has unveiled a new line of consumer products due to hit the UK in the second half of the year, including cameras that shoot in 3D and new MP3 players.

The NEX-5 is the world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens digital camera. Along with the NEX-3, the device can capture HD movies and also features Sony’s 3D Sweep Panorama technology. By capturing a high-speed burst of frames, the devices automatically combine information from up to 100 images to create a three dimensional image.

Sony’s new Cyber-shot compact cameras the WX5 and TX9 also feature 3D Sweep Panorama technology. Both cameras have a 12.2MP Exmor R CMOS Sensor, as well as a full HD movie mode.

Meanwhile, the vendor claims its Handycam NEX-VG10E is the world’s first consumer HD camcorder with an interchangeable lens. It uses a 14.2 effective MP ExmorTM APS HD CMOS sensor to record HD movies with background de-focus and is fully compatible with E-mount interchangeable lenses, as well as A-mount DSLR lenses (via an optional adaptor).

The device’s inbuilt microphone combines signals from four separate omni-directional microphone capsules to create high-quality stereo sound with less background noise. Users also have the option of adding an additional stereo mic, while a headphone jack allows audio monitoring.

Two new Walkman MP3 players have also been unveiled ahead of the Christmas season the A Series and E Series. The latter even has the ability to remove vocals from songs and display lyrics in time to the music, giving it the functionlity of a miniature karaoke machine.

Sony has also launched a number of new iPod and iPhone docks, including the RDH-SK8iP a portable dock which lets the user change its appearance with customisable skins.

The vendor has also refreshed its range of Bravia TVs and Vaio laptops.
