Tim Stevens from Engadget.com is reporting that both models have a HDMI output, SDHC and Memory Stick storage, and 2.7-inch LCD screens. The A390 model has live view allowing the user to take photos without peering through the view finder.

The cameras will be great step up in picture quality for people that would normally use point-and-shoot cameras, but with the in-built user guides easy to use. The A390’s LCD screen can be tilted, and both models have an ISO range from 100 to 3200.
