Sony Japan has detailed two new variants of the feature-rich DSC-W350 Cyber-shot camera. These variants, known as the DSC-W350D, are available in silver and pink and have rhinestones embedded on the front of the camera. Sony aimed to have the surface coating of the pink unit to shine like pink satin. There is also a special coating around the lens ring on the pink version, which is made of a transparent material that is supposed to look like crystal. The silver DSC-W350D aims to look a bit different than the usual dull silver cameras out there and has a “sophisticated rhinestone dot pattern” that provides a “simple and elegant design.” Apparently the ring around the lens on the silver version also is very shiny. Expect these to launch at a price of Y27,000 on April 23rd, and it hasn’t been confirmed outside of Japan.
Sony also detailed two cases that will be available for sale when these cameras launch called the LCS-WJ. It has rhinestone decorations like the cameras and patterns that accent the metallic frame. Within the case, elegant patterns are embossed on the cloth to give it a truly unique and stylish appearance.
The DSC-W350D features a 14.1 megapixel sensor, Carl Zeiss 4x optical zoom, 2.7″ LCD, iAuto, Smile Shutter, Face Detection, Optical SteadyShot, Sweep Panorama, and 720p HD movie recording.
