Sony DSC-V3 announcement clippings

With its 7.2 megapixels and a Carl Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar® lens with 4x optical zoom, Sony's new Cyber-shot® DSC-V3 digital still camera puts outstanding image quality, sophisticated controls and a compact ergonomic design in the hands of photo enthusiasts.

Providing all the versatility of a much larger camera, the V3 is a compact, classic rangefinder-style camera featuring a large easy-to-handle grip. The new design incorporates a 2.5-inch LCD viewfinder, providing more room than ever before to see and share images the moment they are captured.

"The Cyber-shot DSC-V3 model is for a special class of photographer that wants creative control over the picture-taking process in an ultra-portable package," said Greg Young, general manager for digital still camera marketing in Sony Electronics' Personal Mobile and Imaging Division.
