Sony announced the recall of 8 different models of Digital Cameras from its Cyber-shot lineup last week during the Thanksgiving holiday, actually on Black Friday the day that many US consumers line up at the doors of retailers across the country to get spectacular discounts and promotions on goods for holiday presents.

This is the second major recall of Sony Digital cameras in just over a year and yet another major recall of Sony products in 2006.  Sony’s brand image has suffered greatly after the recall of close to 10 million laptop batteries after an initial Apple laptop recall of Sony batteries quickly spread as an internet video circulated showing a Dell computer burn up at a conference and then later as an IBM laptop caught fire and by some accounts blew up at LAX.
