Sony China Reveals W610, W630 Cyber-shot Digital Cameras Before CES Announcement

December 30, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Sony, one of the main competitors in the camera market is always busy bringing in their new products.

Their two latest models, W610 and W630, are slated to make its debut in the Consumer Electronic Show, starting on January 2012.

But, in an unfortunate turn of events, the company’s plans have been spoiled by their branch in China. Accidentally or not, Sony China has unveiled the two W-series Cyber-shot digital cameras on their website.

So what was bad luck for Sony, has turned out to be favorable for us. The W630 model comes with a 16.1-megapixel Super HAD CCD image sensor which is supported by a retractable Carl ZeissVario-Tessar lens with 5X optical zoom and 25mm wide-angle focal length.

The shooter has an internal storage capacity of 2GB. It can capture 720p HD videos and clear pictures with no jittering by optical image stabilization mode.

Along with four different photo effects for fun, the camera can easily record vast landscapes with the help of Sweep Panorama mode. The $206 priced camera will be available in Gold, Pink, Silver, Black and Purple skins.

The other model, W610, priced at $166 is a cheaper one. It sports a 14.1-megapixel Super HAD CCD image sensor attached with a 4X optical zoom and 26mm wide-angle focal length lens.

It also has the Intelligent Auto mode and Sweep Panorama mode that is seen in the W630. The camera comes packed with 2GB inbuilt storage and debuts in Sliver, Pink, Black, Green and Blue hues.

Though the cameras are currently given price tags, after the official unveiling in the CES 2012, the prices will most probably be lowered in the US due to the tax differences.

Among W610 and W630, which one do you fancy?
