Toshiba announces 'Sora' PDR-T20

Jun 5, 2002 at 18:36 GMT

Toshiba Japan has today announced the new 'Sora' PDR-T20 digital camera. This ultra-compact vertical orientation digital camera features a two megapixel CCD sensor and two times optical zoom lens. The camera is clad in a metal case and will be available (in Japan at least) in three different colour finishes. Turn the camera on its side and it does look a little like Canon's S30/S40.
