a couple of new digital cameras. The intricacies of photography being somewhat over our head, we don’t usually spend too much time on cameras, but the Sony pair boasted a feature that I hadn’t seen in a digicam before: a touchscreen. Of course, digital cameras have been using LCD screens for years now, but using them to help control the interface strikes me as a spot-on idea. At 3″, they’re decent-sized screens, too.
Besides the touchscreen, the features are fairly ordinary. You get your choice between the stylish 7.2 megapixel DSC-T50 (available in silver, black, and red) and the out-and-out power of the 10.1 megapixel DSC-N2 (only in champagne gold); both feature a 3x optical zoom and lithium-ion battery packs. They’ll run $500 and $450 respectively, and will be available for pre-order tomorrow from
