Sony Cyber-shot S800 Jacked Up to 6x Optical Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot line is getting a punch in the arm next month with the launch of the S800. The S800 has done away with the Carl Zeiss lens and is now equipped with a proprietary 6x optical zoom lens that ensures those in your face shots will reveal every crevice. Other features include anti-blur technology, 8-megapixels with an ISO rating up to 1250 and a 2.5-inch LCD. It also includes 56MB of storage with the expansion for Memory Sticks to up the ante. Sony also throws in a pair of rechargeable batteries that are said to last up to 390 shots. Look for the S800 next month, but no word on price.
