Sony seems to have a thing about constantly trying to improve upon their existing product line, and their successful Alpha line of DSLRs is no exception.

As a bonus, both cameras also feature the same 14.2MP CCD formerly found in the Alpha a380.
You don't expect motion detection in a battery, but the new Dionic HCX from Anton/Bauer is smart enough to know when to go into a deep sleep, and when moved, to wake up.

To awaken the battery for normal use, you need simply to move the battery, thus activating the motion-detection feature.
Sony's point-and-shoot cameras are being marshaled to rally 'round the company-wide push for 3D TV with the announcement that two of three new Cyber-shot models will contain 3D Sweep Panorama capability.
