Sony expanded its line of CD Mavicas with the introduction of the MVC-CD250 and MVC-CD400 at last month’s PMA show.
The two Mavicas will ship with a media pack of one CD-RW and six CD-R discs, giving each camera over 1GB of available storage. The MVC-CD250 captures images with 2-megapixel (effective) resolution and 3x optical/2x digital zoom. Some new features it shares with the MVC-CD400 include MPEG HQX movie mode with audio and a three-shot burst mode for taking photos in rapid succession. It is expected to sell for about $600.
The MVC-CD400 offers 4-megapixel effective resolution, an f2.0 Carl Zeiss lens and a Sony’s Hologram AF function, which is designed to achieve accurate focus on subjects with little contrast in dark conditions. The MVC-CD400 CD Mavica camera will be available in May for about $900.
