Just like the MHz race in the processor market a couple of years ago digital camera makers are continuously releasing new models with more and more megapixels. More megapixels don't necessarily improve the image quality but unfortunately the general public only knows one specification of a digital camera and that's how many megapixels it has.
Sony follows this trend with its new DSC-W300 digital camera which has a 13.6 megapixel sensor. Other features include a 2.7" LCD display, 3x optical zoom, optical image stabilization, ISO 6400 and Smile Shutter technology.
The Sony DSC-W300 will be available in May for $350.
