Sony's new stylish shooters
Sony announced the Cyber-shot DSC-T70 and T200 digital cameras, slim fashion cameras available in a variety of colors.
Sony's two new Cyber-shot T-series cameras don't look very different from past models, but they certainly feel different; these new cameras eschew buttons in favor of big, touch-sensitive LCD screens.

Apart from the touchscreens, the T200 and T70 are nearly identical to their predecessors. They both use the same sensors and lenses as their bigger siblings; the T200 sports a 35 to 175mm-equivalent 5x lens just like the T100's, while the T70 uses the same 38 to 114mm-equivalent 3x lens found on the T20. The only other change is the T200's optional HD-output, found on the T20 but not the T100. Hopefully, Sony's improved its touchscreen interface in the last two years, otherwise you'll probably want to stick with the old-timey, button-driven models.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T200 and T70 hit stores in early October. The T200 will be available in red, black, and silver for about $400, and the T70 will come in pink, black, white, and silver versions with a suggested retail price of $330.
