                Sony Rolls Out the DSC-S800 Digital Camera
                Sony's latest S series point-and-shoot camera boasts a 6 optical zoom
                Sony thought it's time to add a new point-and-shoot digital camera to their Cyber-shot S
                series of digital cameras. Cyber-shot DSC-S800 leads the "S pack" with a 30 X smart zoom,
                raising the optical zoom to 6 x. Instead of the usual Carl Zeiss lens, it comes with Sony's
                own high-sensitivity lens.

                 The camera features an 1/1.8-inch Super HAD CCD tiny image sensor (a “stunning” 8.1
                megapixels resolution), sensitivity rating up to 1250, 2.5-inch LCD monitor, Direct Playback
                mode, 56 MB of on-board shot storage, MSPro/ MSDuo compatibility. It also boasts the
                two-centimeter macro mode, 16:9 playback, PictBridge support, multi-language GUI support
                and a Motion JPEG video mode that's not going to impress anyone.
