Looking oh so slim and trim, the Sony DSC-T500 shoots high def 720p video and 10 megapixel stills. Video is encoded in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec, which should make it an easier upload to Youtube, and viewing is had through a fatty 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD. Unfortunately, video clips max out at 10 minutes and memory expansion is limited to Sony’s 16GB memory stick. Other notables are a 5x optical zoom, face detection, image stabilization, HDMI out, flash and a $400 price tag.

Expect the Sony DSC-T500 out in late September of this year.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
