Last but not least is the H50, which has a massive 15x optical zoom. The sensor comes bearing 9.1 million pixels. Aside from these improvements, the same array of features as the H10 is present.
Finally comes the mack daddy of the W series, the Cyber-shot W300. While the zoom jumps back down to a standard 3x, the sensor receives a massive resolution increase to 13.6 million pixels. That makes it one of the highest resolution compact cameras available.
The W series isn’t the only range to get a makeover, two new units have also been added to the H series — Sony’s ultra-zoom category. The cheaper of the two is the Cyber-shot H10, which packs in a fairly impressive 10x optical zoom lens. Its other features include an 8.1-megapixel sensor, optical image stabilisation and a 3in rotatable LCD screen.
First cab off the ranks is the Cyber-shot W110. This is a fairly basic entry-level unit sporting a 7.2-megapixel sensor and a 4x optical zoom lens. Face detection and ISO 3200 also make an appearance. With a low price tag, it is suitable for novice users after a new happy-snap camera with some nifty features.
The Cyber-shot W120 is very similar to the W110. It offers the same feature set, sensor and zoom, but throws in optical image stabilisation to help keep your shots crisp.
The Cyber-shot W150 takes several things up a notch. The sensor receives a boost to 8.1 megapixels, while the zoom gets bumped up to 5x. The LCD screen is also a little bigger, measuring 2.7in.
