Cyber-shot is Sony's line of point-and-shoot digital cameras introduced in 1996. Cyber-shot model names use a DSC prefix, which is an initialism for "Digital Still Camera". Many Cyber-shot models feature Carl Zeiss trademarked lenses, while others use Sony, or Sony G lenses.
All Cyber-shot cameras accept Sony's proprietary Memory Stick or Memory Stick PRO Duo flash memory. Select models have also supported CompactFlash. Current Cyber-shot cameras support Memory Stick PRO Duo, SD, SDHC, and SDXC.
Currently the W and T-series use Sony N-type batteries While most H-series use G-type batteries.
From 2006 to 2009, Sony Ericsson used the Cyber-shot brand in a line of mobile phones.
On March 31, 2012 Sony unveiled the Sony Cybershot DSC W690 as the world`s thinnest 10x optical zoom camera.
