Sony is adding high-definition video recording to their digital camera line with the introduction of the Cybershot DSC-T500. The DSC-T500 has the ability to capture still images while in video recording mode. This camera is due to be released in late September and will sell for about $400.

The DSC-T500 uses MPEG-4 movie format to give you high quality video recording while maintaining a small file size. The DSC-T500, 10-megapixel camera, features a wide and full-screen 720p movie recording at 30 fps in fine, standard and VGA recording modes. This makes the resolution of this camera three times higher than a standard definition movie.

The LCD viewing screen measures 3.5" diagonally (16:9 aspect ratio) and is also a touch panel, which makes navigation very easy. Unlike other LCD screens, this LCD can be viewed in strong outside light. The camera incorporates a Carl Zeiss 5x optical zoom lens with a wide field of view of 33-165 mm, which is the 35 mm camera equivalency.

Additional features include:

• Optical SteadyShot - image stabilization
• ISO up to 3200
• Approximately 4 GB internal memory
• Expandable memory (memory stick media card)
• Face detection (automatically detects up to eight faces in the camera frame and adjusts focus, exposure and flash)
• Connect to HDTV via HDMI cable (sold separately)
• Record video in both wide and full-screen mode at 720p at 30 fps
• Create slideshows with sophisticated slide transitions, pre-recorded background music or add your own
• Picture Motion Browser software lets you organize and view your pictures
• 13 Scene Modes: high sensitivity, twilight, twilight portrait, soft-snap, landscape, beach, snow, fireworks, hi-speed shutter, smile shutter, gourmet, auto adjustment, and underwater
