Sony Announces New 3D Point-and-shoot Cameras

Sony announced its first point-and-shoot cameras with the ability to capture 3D photos–the Cyber-shot TX9 ($399) and Cyber-shot WX5 ($299)–giving people an exciting and more personal reason to invest in a 3DTV. The camers will be available in September.

Like Sony's pocket D-SLRs, the NEX-5 and NEX-3, the new pocket shooters have you sweep the camera horizontally or vertically to capture multiple shots, which are then stiched together to create separate left and right-eye images. The resulting 3D still files (industry standard .mpo files) can be viewed on Sony's new Bravia 3D TVs when the cameras are connect through their mini HDMI out jack (compatibility with other manufacturers' TVs hasn't been confirmed). The only other 3D point-and-shoot camera, the Fujifilm FinePix REAL 3D W1, doesn't have video out for easy viewing.

Also of note are a pair of intelligent auto modes, iAuto for fast action shots and the new Superior Auto mode, which takes successive shots to achieve the best detail in challenging lighting environments.

Sony is doing the progress

Sony is doing the progress of 3D a great disservice
with this pathetic sequential 3D entry. Any 2D camera can do sequentials, but sequentials can’t capture action or movement of any sort,its a very limited option.
