Sony has launched six new digital cameras in India, and announced another, at CEIF 2013, just as we had predicted last week.
Sony has launched a slew of new cameras in India at the Consumer Electronic Imaging Fair (CEIF) 2013 in New Delhi, namely, three models in the Alpha series (Alpha99, NEX-5R, NEX-6), one in the Cyber-shot series (RX1), and two professional Handycam models (NEX-VG900 and NEX-FS700K). The Alpha NEX-7 was also introduced, though without pricing and availability details. We'd been expecting the Japanese giant to make a series of announcements at CEIF 2013, since last week.
The Sony Cyber-shot RX1 professional compact digital camera has been priced at Rs. 1,79,990, and is supposedly the first point and shoot camera to feature a 35mm full-frame 24.3MP Exmor CMOS sensor, along with a Carl Zeiss Sonnar T f/2.0 fixed focal lens. Other features of the Cyber-shot RX1 include a 3-inch 1.229k dot Xtra Fine TFT LCD, Sweep Panorama, face detection for 8 faces, SteadyShot Image Stabilization, intelligent auto, 13 picture effects, 1080p HD video recording at 60fps, BIONZ image processor and engine, ISO sensitivity up to 25,600, and contrast detection AF. It weighs in at 482 grams.
The Sony Alpha99 (or 99) has been priced at Rs. 1,79,990, and is the company’s mount flagship DSLT (translucent mirror) camera, featuring the same 35mm full-frame 24.3MP Exmor CMOS sensor as the RX1.

The Sony Alpha NEX-6 is priced at Rs. 49,990, and also features a 16.1MP Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor plus high sensitivity up to ISO 25600. The NEX-6 also features a new Fast Hybrid AF for shots up to 10 fps, dual dials and Quick Navi interface, integrated Wi-Fi, Play Memories Camera apps, face detection up to 8 faces, Smile Shutter technology, tracking focus, anti motion blur, Auto High Dynamic Range, shooting tips, Sweep Panorama, high-resolution XGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder, 3-inch 921k dot LCD, built-in flash and new Multi Interface Shoe, and ISO sensitivity up to 25600.

The Sony NEX-VG900E has been priced at Rs. 1,79,990, and is the company’s first interchangeable lens full HD Handycam with a 35mm full-frame 24.3MP APS-C HD CMOS sensor. Other features include A-mount (via supplied adaptor) and E-mount lenses, Full HD 50p/25p/24p progressive movie recording, extensive manual controls and ‘seesaw’ zoom lever, Quad Capsule Spatial Array Microphone for high-quality stereo and 5.1ch sound, a high contrast XGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder, and a 3.0-inch XtraFine touch panel LCD.
