The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T70 features an eight megapixel sensor which is coupled to a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar branded 3x optical zoom and a roomy 16:9 aspect ratio 3.0" touch screen LCD.

The DSC-T70's 38 - 114mm equivalent lens incorporates Sony's Super Steady Shot optical image stabilization to minimize blur caused by camera shake at slow shutter speeds. Other T70 features include ISO sensitivity to a maximum of ISO 3200, a Memory Stick Duo / PRO Duo card slot plus 31MB of built in memory, and power from a proprietary Lithium Ion rechargeable battery. The T70 also offers USB connectivity for connection to a personal computer, and high definition video connectivity for viewing on the latest HD televisions.

The Cyber-shot T70 includes Sony's face detection technology, which is linked not only to the camera's autoexposure and autofocus systems as in most similar systems, but also to white balance and flash metering as well - allowing the camera to ensure proper flash exposure and pleasing flesh tones. Also, the T70 features Sony's Bionz image processor - first seen in the company's Alpha digital SLRs. Sony says Bionz offers improved image quality, faster response times, and better battery life in its compact cameras.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T70 ships from mid-September 2007 priced at US$330, and will be available in pink, white, black and silver.
