Sony launches T500 Cyber-shot – HD video and more

My goodness, there has been a lot of digital cameras launched within the last few days. Nikon, Canon and now Sony. This firm’s latest sports a 10.1 megapixel paired up with a 5x optical zoom and a 3.5-inch touchscreen, but the main selling point of the T500 has to be the HD video capture mode. This mode allows for up to 10 minutes of continuous video that should fill a 4GB memory stick. Said video files are recorded, surprisingly in a non-Sony proprietary format, in MPEG4 AVC/H.264. There is even a way to snap 720p images while shooting the video.  The T500 drops in October for a yet to be announced price.
