Sony on Sunday announced the addition of three new digital camera models to its Cyber-shot family, including the DSC-TX200V from the ultra-thin Cyber-Shot T series, and the DSC-WX70 and DSC-WX50 models from the traditionally designed W series. Each of three new cameras feature a high resolution "Exmor R" CMOS sensor and improved BIONZ image processor that work together to produce better shots in low-light scenarios and enhance auto-focus speeds, Sony says.

The TX200V sports a newly developed 18.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor, the highest resolution currently offered in the point-and-shoot market, Sony claims. Auto focus speeds are as low as 0.13 seconds in daytime conditions and 0.25 in low-light situations. It has a TruBlack OLED wide touchscreen and a semi-rugged design that's waterproof up to about 16 feet, dust-proof, and freeze-proof up to 14F.

Sony's WX70 and WX50 both sport 16.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensors. The WX70 features a 3-inch LCD touchscreen and the WX50 has a 2.7-inch LCD.

Beginning in March, the DSC-TX200V will be available in silver, red, and violet for $500; the DSC-WX70 in silver, black, pink, violet, and white for $230; and the DSC-WX50 in silver and black for $200.
