NEW: Sony DSC-W300 and DSC-H50

Sony's just released updates to two digital cameras in their Cyber-Shot line: the DSC-W300 and the DSC-H50. As always, it depends what you're up to in your photo life, but take a good look at the W300 -- it could make many a photographer happy. You can pre-order these on SonyStyle.com.

Sony DSC-W300: the mega-pixels just keep coming

13.6 mega-pixel compact point + shoot (that's right, 13.6!)
3x optical zoom, Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens
2.7-inch LCD display
Ability to shoot at high speeds -- 5 frames/second (you have to drop down to 3 mega-pixels though)
Image stabilization, Automatic scene detection to adjust color
ISO 6400 mode -- this will eliminate blur but increase grain/noise
Face and smile detection (see our earlier post)
A Bunch of Sony Goo: Sony BIONZ image processor, Clear RAW Noise Reduction
Scratch-resistant titanium coating
About $350, ships in May -- preorder at Sonystyle

Sony DSC-H50: great for fast-action shooting
9.1 mega-pixel
15x zoom (WOAH!), Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens
3-inch LCD display
Sensitivity from ISO 80 to 3200
Powerful flash -- at ISO 3200 it will illuminate subjects up to 55 feet away
Advanced light metering -- matrix, spot, center
9-point auto-focus with "assist lamp" (when you're focusing, the camera shines a small light so it can better see what it's focusing on)
Image stabilization, Automatic scene detection to adjust color
Face and smile detection (see our earlier post)
15MB internal memory (get a memory stick, quick)
About $400, ships in May -- preorder at SonyStyle
