Sony has decided to upgrade several of its digital still cameras with more of those juicy megapixels (higher resolution image sensors). The DSC-W55 ($200) and W35 ($180) will replace the current W50 ($200) and W30 ($200) models. The main difference is a 7.2-megapixel image sensor as opposed to the existing 6-megapixel one. The DSC-S650 ($150) and S-700 ($180) will both provide a 7.0-megapixel image sensor, an upgrade of 1-megapixel over the 6-megapixel S600 model. Other major features remain unchanged: all four cameras still have a 3X optical zoom lens, blur-reduction setting, a fragment of internal memory and Memory Stick Duo slots. Sony will begin accepting pre-orders online from January 23, 2007 while in-store availability will come in February and March 2007.
