Sony Japan today announced the all new DSC-T11 ultra-compact digital camera. Clearly based around the DSC-T1 the DSC-T11 appears to be even slimmer still and does away with the T1's sliding front cover to give the camera a completely flat front profile. The DSC-T11 also gets a larger, more prominent chromed neck strap attachment bar which runs down its left side. The DSC-T11 has a five megapixel CCD and three times folded optical zoom lens. Also announced today were the DSC-W1, DSC-P100 and DSC-P73 (which were all announced at PMA), new however is the DSC-P43 which appears to be based on the DSC-P73. It's unclear at this stage if the DSC-T11 or DSC-P43 will make it to the European and US markets.
