to respond to a photographer’s instincts.
These capabilities enable the capture of
unexpected picture opportunities, and
support more confident subject tracking
during continuous shooting.
◆ 4-channel data output from the D200’s
CCD image sensor works with fast image
processing to deliver high-speed continuous
shooting. These elements also work in
conjunction with the high-speed memory
buffer and optimized system buses to
achieve faster read and write access to
CompactFlash (CF) cards, while camera-tocomputer data transfer takes place via the
USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface.

High-Performance
◆ Captures fast action and fleeting expressions
with the ability to capture high-resolution
images at a rapid 5 frames per second (fps)
in continuous bursts of up to 22 NEF
(RAW) or 37 JPEG (FINE - LARGE) shots
◆ Shutter speeds from 30 to 1/8,000 second
can be selected manually or used in
conjunction with automated program
modes to provide a range that will match
challenging conditions.
◆ Additionally, flash-synchronized shutter
speeds of up to 1/250 second, and up to
1/8,000 second with Auto FP High Speed
Sync, greatly enhance creative exposure
flexibility and fill-flash effects.

D200
Autofocus
◆ Like the D80, the D200 is equipped with an
advanced Multi-CAM 1000 AF Sensor
Module offering 11-area AF that ensures
consistently fast and precise focus lock under
varying shooting conditions, all while
adding diverse and effective new focus area
options. However, not only is this system
able to use each of its 11 focus areas
individually, aiding in pinpoint focus on still
subjects, but it can also operate as a 7-wide
area AF system, offering broad coverage
that improves the camera’s ability to acquire
moving subjects and delivers greater
compositional freedom. Lens focus action
is controlled by the latest algorithms, which
further improve system response, focus
precision, as well as subject acquisition
and tracking abilities.
◆ Single Area AF is great for picking a single
subject out of a scene with multiple elements.
Use any one of the 11-area AF or 7 wide-area
AF spot sensors individually to achieve sharp
results, even when your intended subject is
located off center and surrounded by other
objects. Assisting operation with easy
confirmation, the selected area is indicated
within the viewfinder and on the Top
Control Panel if desired.
Magnesium Alloy Body
◆ With Nikon advanced technologies and
mechanisms housed within a rugged, but
lightweight magnesium body, the D200 is
durable, dependable and ready for the most
rigorous of assignments. And, with an
enhanced sealing system protecting each and
every seam, the D200 body offers reassuring
resistance to causal moisture and dust.
◆ The double-bladed shutter unit has been thoroughly tested to well over 100,000 cycles,
ensuring the highest level of durability and reliability. Employing a refined mirror
balance mechanism that completes its motion cycle and reaches a full stop virtually
without mirror bounce, it promotes maximum stability and speed as well as smoother
AF detection. It also provides the extended viewfinder visibility essential for fast,
accurate focus tracking and continuous shooting.
D200 Doesn’t Have
The D200 doesn’t have a ‘Retouch Menu’ (in-camera D-lighting, Red-Eye reduction, image
trimming, and filter effects. It doesn’t have “My Menu” allowing menus to be customized to
display only selected items. The D200 substitutes this with a ‘Recent Settings’ menu that reflects
the last 14 settings adjusted, offering a quick way to revisit these settings. The D200 offers
automatic flash with manual pop-up via button release. The D80 does the same but adds
automatic pop-up. The D80 records to SD (Secure Digital) memory cards, the D200 records to
Compact Flash cards.
◆ Dynamic AF used with Continuous servo-AF
mode operation helps maintain precise focus
should the subject move from its original
position – instantly and automatically
shifting the selected focus area to correspond
to the subject’s new location.
◆ Closest Subject Priority Dynamic AF can be
ideal for portraiture in characteristic settings
that include action or complex elements. It
automatically identifies the subject closest to
the camera using the 11 sensors, and enables
composition that captures the entire scene
while keeping the focus emphasis on the
closest subject.
◆ Group Dynamic AF recognizes patterns of
action in the scene and allocates a group of
AF sensors accordingly. Both Dynamic AF
and Closest Subject options are also available, enabling the capture of specific moving
subjects in a frame that may also contain
peripheral activity. Such broad ranging
focus capability is well suited to composition
situations, such as sports, where the action
can be expected to take place in a particular
part of the frame but at a speed too fast for
focus on a single spot.
Wireless Transmission Capability
With the Nikon WT-3A Wireless Transmitter
accessory attached to the D200, you can instantly
transmit images to your LAN computer-access
point using IEEE802.11b/g technology. It enables
cable-free image transfer with the added safety and
versatility of wide-ranging network and security
protocols. Powered by a single EN-EL3e battery and providing additional functionality,
including a vertical shutter release button as well as front and rear command dials, the
WT-3A delivers much more than outstanding wireless technology and performance.
◆ Provides simple operation, setup and
device registration, with support for
up to 9 device profiles with the Setup
Utility software.
◆ IEEE802.11 b/g wireless LAN supports
FTP and PTP-IP protocols with
effective transfer rates up to 10 Mbps
in the ad-hoc mode.
◆ Built-in wired (LAN) 100BASE-T
Ethernet capability with automatic
cable detection offering an effective
transmission rate of 15 Mbps.
◆ Network functions include Transfer,
PC and Print modes, remote
operation via Nikon Capture and
Capture Control Pro software, and
wireless printing with the PD-10
Print Mode adapter.
◆ The built-in antenna provides an
operational range of up to 256 feet.
◆ TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity
Protocol) and AES encryption
provides increased security for file
transmissions.

◆ The D2Xs offers versatility in its selection of
continuous shooting speed modes. In addition to taking a total number of 60 consecutive shots, capture 12.4 megapixel files at 5
frames per second for 17 consecutive RAW
(NEF) or 22 JPEG shots.
◆ Use the exclusive High-speed Crop mode to
shoot at 8 frames per second for 29 consecutive RAW (NEF) or 38 JPEG shots. Highspeed Crop mode uses data from the central
area of the sensor that results in a picture
angle comparable to that of a 35mm lens
with double the focal length. This offers a
useful option when shooting sports, animals
or other fast-moving objects from a distance.
◆ Shutter speeds from 30 to 1/8,000 second
can be selected in 1/3, 1/2 or 1 EV steps, with
Bulb exposure also available. Flash synchronization is possible using speeds up to 1/250
second, or up to 1/8,000 second when using
AUTO FP High-Speed Sync with an SB-800,
SB-600 or SB-R200 Speedlight.
◆ Nikon’s advanced color reproduction system
combines 3 available color modes and corresponding color profile choices to offer a
range of color treatments to match specific
assignments and workflow environments.
Black & White (sRGB) color mode further
expands the in-camera creative possibilities.
◆ Real-time noise reduction that can be ap-
plied during image processing may be augmented by long exposure and high ISO noise
reduction options, available via the menu.
◆ The D2xs body has exterior styling adopted
from a design created by famed designer,
Giorgetto Giugiaro. The body is proportionate and well balanced, with a well designed
interface that is intuitive and seamless.
◆ Image Overlay merges a pair of
selected
RAW files to create a new composite image
within the camera as a RAW, JPEG or TIFF
file. Multiple Exposure creates a single image
from up to 10 exposures, and can be used
with the camera’s built-in interval timer.
Accurate Exposure Metering
◆ To achieve optimum exposure for each shot, Nikon’s acclaimed 1,005-pixel RGB Exposure/
Color Matrix Metering Sensor and advanced algorithms determine the brightness and size of
highlight areas, while at the same
time evaluating all brightness,

◆ 3D-Color Matrix Metering II is available in High-speed Crop mode, while also optimizing the
areas calculated for using Center-weighted metering, Spot metering and i-TTL Flash Control.
◆ Modes and controls for optimizing exposure include [P] Programmed Auto with Flexible
Program, [S] Shutter-priority Auto, [A] Aperture-priority Auto, and [M] Manual. Manual
exposure compensation is available from -5 to +5 EV in 1/3, 1/2 or 1 EV steps.
◆ Sensitivity can be manually set between ISO-equivalent 100 and 800 in increments of
1/3 EV,
or boosted using the HI-0.3, HI-0.5, HI-0.7, HI-1 or HI-2 settings when high sensitivity is a
priority. The three settings between 800 and HI-1 give the D2Xs finer control over sensitivity.
◆ Automatic sensitivity adjustment help achieve optimum exposure while freeing photographers
to concentrate on composition. Offering greater control over the range within which AUTO
ISO operates, the D2Xs provides settings to specify the maximum value to which the function
can increase sensitivity and the minimum shutter speed at which AUTO ISO will operate.
Flexible and Accurate White Balance Control
◆ Advanced Auto White Balance (AWB) and Auto Tone Control (ATC) systems effectively handle
complicated lighting conditions, achieving optimum white balance along with refined color
and tone reproduction.
◆ Manual white balance mode selections include Color Temperature mode for directly setting
Kelvin color temperature from 31 values between 2,500K and 10,000K. Preset mode provides
quick selection from 5 white balance settings that may be saved to match the lighting conditions in known venues.
Ergonomic Design and Button Layout
The size, layout and operation of each customizable
button, control and function is designed for intuitive
operation and feedback, minimizing the need to
remove the eye from the viewfinder while shooting.
This combines with instant, predictable response to
free the photographer to concentrate on composition.
Operation remains consistently comfortable for either
horizontal or vertical orientation. The convenient
Function button on the front of the body can be
programmed for simpler switching such as in and
out of High-speed Crop mode when using continuous
shooting.
The eye-level viewfinder features frame coverage of virtually 100% and a 19.9mm eyepoint.
Information bars along the bottom and right edges display the current white balance mode,
image quality and size settings, ISO setting and more. The viewfinder also features an improved
view within the high-speed Crop mode frame for faster and easier composition.

CAPTURE NX
Next Generation Image Editing for Photographers
Capture NX is an image processing and editing software that gives digital photographers
powerful tools complimented by simple and visual operation that streamlines their workflow.
Next generation software, Capture NX inherits the robust RAW (NEF) processing capabilities
from Nikon Capture, and combines these with a host of features such as Nik Software’s
patented U Point technology, seamless image-browsing and advanced batch-processing
capabilities, superior color management control and comprehensive system compatibility
with Nikon's Digital Imaging System. Capture NX’s intuitive interface design offers
photographers a rewarding experience and delivers powerful performance while maintaining
an ease-of-use that is welcomed by enthusiasts of all skill levels.
In addition to providing cutting-edge features and capabilities for Nikon’s Electronic Format
(NEF) files, Capture NX also makes editing and processing of JPEG and TIFF files created by
virtually any digital camera simple and easy. With its wide-ranging features, user-friendly
interface and powerful performance, Capture NX makes image editing visually intuitive, allowing you to immediately see the
effects as they are applied as well as providing access to a wide range of enhancement tools.
F EAT UR E S
Non-Destructive Image Editing
NEF Quality
Capture NX applies non-destructive image processing to NEF files,
which means that you’ll never compromise your original NEF images or
image quality. All enhancements are saved in an Instruction Set along
with the original data and Thumbnail. Ordinarily, changes made to a
JPEG or TIFF file will affect its original image data; to avoid this, save
as another file name, or use Nikon’s original technology. So instead,
your Original JPEG and TIFF images can be saved conveniently as
“converted” NEF files.
To help you realize more of the potential of NEF, Capture NX utilizes
camera settings within any camera-produced NEF file and ensures that
parameters set within any Nikon camera-produced NEF file (White
Balance, Sharpening, Color Mode, Saturation, etc.) are applied to the
image as originally selected. So your creative picture taking decisions
are preserved, and there’s less to do later, when you’re working on your
picture on a computer.

U Point Technology
Capture NX uses Nik Software’s patented
U Point technology to give you the results that
you envision. This innovation in photo image
processing and editing, applicable to Nikon’s
NEF files as well as JPEG and TIFF files, features powerful tools to easily enhance images.
Simply select among the available Control
Points and adjust each point’s sliders until you
see the image as you like it. It’s a highly visual,
intuitive technique.
Color Control Points:
Color Control Points let you select and isolate
an entire image or an area within it for
enhancement in minutes. Choose and use any
Color Control Point to modify hue, brightness,
saturation, red, green, blue, warmth and
contrast within each selected area. When you
use multiple Control Points, Capture NX
learns to distinguish among the Control Points
and effects changes to your desired area-selection. With Color Control Points, it takes just a
few seconds to achieve the professional quality
image enhancement and control you want!
Black, White, Neutral Control Points:
Black, White and Neutral Control Points can
be used to set the dynamic range and correct
color casts in your images. Neutral Control
Points can also be used to set color balance in
an image. Each Control Point appears on the
image and can be dragged from point to point,
for precise movement and positioning to a
desired effect. Sliders let you adjust their effect
for the respective Control Point areas. Neutral
Control Points can be used to set a targeted
color to any color available within the color
picker. This is useful for removing color casts
and toning, even without a neutral object in
the scene. Use of multiple Neutral Control
Points helps reduce multiple color casts and
enhance selected colors in images. The drag,
point and slider control is easy to use, yet very
powerful and creative in its effect!
Versatile Functions and Intuitive Photo Editing
Selective Tools: With Capture NX,
you get additional tools for selective
application of over 25 enhancements.
For example, the Brush tool can paint
in or paint out an enhancement, the
Lasso and Marquee tools offer familiar
selections, and the Gradient tool can
gradually add or remove an effect.
Browser: The Capture NX Browser lets
you sort, organize, compare, tag and
improve images. Use it to select an
image to enhance, rename a series of
photographs, or quickly and easily apply
a batch process to a group of images.
Batching: By automatically applying one
or more enhancements to a series of
images, the batch processing of Capture
NX provides superior benefits of
simplicity and saved time.
Edit List: For easier, more intuitive editing, the Capture NX Edit List helps you to
track, cancel or add new modifications.
Markers: Markers let you create multiple
versions of an original NEF image, all
within the original image file. Imagine, 2,
6, 8, 10 or more versions within one file!
No need to search your computer to find
versions – just open the original NEF and
click on the Markers to review them. And
no need for extensive hard disk space for
many copies of versions. All copies can be
contained in one file for convenience and
efficiency – the original file’s size changes
by a tiny amount! Retain original NEF’s
raw versatility, as the original image and
each version is securely stored.
Advanced Noise Reduction: Capture NX
noise reduction offers the latest, Nikon
algorithms to reduce or remove unwanted
noise while retaining important details in
the image. This tool is especially useful
for images shot with high ISO.
Lens Correction Tools (some functions
available for RAW files only): Expand
your imaging possibilities with three
tools for correcting various lens effects:
Vignette Control can automatically
reduce the effect of marginal lumination;
Color Aberration Control can reduce
color fringing effects; and Distortion
Control can reduce pincushion and
barrel distortion effects.
16-bit image compatibility (available for
RAW and 16-bit TIFF files only): Capture
NX functions are fully compatible with
16-bit images, regardless of whether they
originate as NEF or TIFF files. Ensures
that all editing enhancements deliver as
much detail in your images as possible.
Color Management: Color Management
tools makes workflow management more
comprehensive. For example, the ability
to convert and assign a color profile helps
ensure that colors are accurate from your
first to last edit. Utilize the Soft Proof tool
to view how a specific printer will recreate
image colors on your monitor. The
Capture NX print function lets you use
an assigned profile to print your images.
D-Lighting: Lets you simultaneously
reveal details in shadows and highlights,
and correct for areas of underexposure,
backlighting or insufficient flash, without
altering properly exposed areas or
introducing unwanted artifacts. Slider
control allows you to select the relationship
of brightness to darkness. When used in
combination with the NEF Exposure
Compensation tool for restoring lost
highlight details, you can recover many
images that you might otherwise discard.
Printing: From Editor and Browser, you
can print individual images, contact
sheets and print packages, while maintaining a fully color-managed workflow.
Show Selection for Accurate Control:
Use the “show selection” feature for each Color
Control Point to see which area of the image is
affected by the Color Control Point. This
process reverses the image into a black and
white view and clearly shows the image areas
under adjustment.
Red-Eye Reduction
Thanks to U Point Technology, red-eye can be easily removed. Just place a Red-Eye Reduction
Control Point on each of the offending eyes, and away it goes! With just a few slider adjustments,
you can use a Color Control Point to make blue (or any other eye color) eyes brighter, darker or
more radiant. With a mere Ctrl-D click, you can duplicate your Color Control Point so you can
rest assured that the effect to each eye will be the same.

Greatly enhancing the versatility of Nikon’s Creative Lighting System, the R1 and R1C1 offers
photographers using Nikon i-TTL capable SLRs, including D-70, D-70s, D-80, D-200,
D2Hs and D2Xs a compelling way to get outstanding results with their close-up
photography while bringing an amazing level of simplicity and automation to
the lighting process. Designed to seamlessly fit within Nikon’s i-TTL Wireless
Creative Lighting System, the R1C1 includes the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight
Commander, two SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlights and a host of useful
accessories and mounting adapters all neatly packaged in one complete kit. The
R1 is identical with the exception of the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander.
The R1 is designed to take advantage of Nikon i-TTL digital SLR cameras that feature a
Wireless Commander built into the camera’s on-board Speedlight system, such as the D70, D70s, D80 and D200.

SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlights
Small and versatile, the SB-R200’s give you unlimited creative options in close-up photography
and other lighting. They attach easily o the front of the lens via the supplied SX-1 Attachment
Ring, which accommodates up to four units for shadowless, full - surround illumination of small
objects. Alternatively, they can be mounted on the supplied AS-20 stands and freely positioned
for desired lighting effects. When the SX-1 is detached from the lens, up to eight SB-R200s can be
mounted on the ring, creating a powerful and controllable wireless mono-light.

Close-up Attachment Lenses
Bellows Focusing Attachment and Accessories
Nikon’s easy-to-use close-up lenses screw
directly into the front thread of your lens–a
simple, easy way to increase magnification. Even
when attached, you can still use automatic
exposure control and TTL metering. To
improve image contrast and reduce flare, lenses
are treated with Nikon Integrated Coating.
Close-up lenses 1 and 2 are for lenses with a
focal length up to 55mm. 3T, 4T, 5T and 6T are
two-element achromatic lenses that ensure a
high image quality. 3T and 4T work best with
85mm to 200mm lenses, and 5T and 6T with
lenses from 70mm to 210mm. 5T and 6T have a
62mm front attachment size; all others 52mm.

AF-S DX NIKKOR LENSES
The latest additions to Nikon’s world-class Nikkor lens line-up, the DX Nikkor series was developed in response to the
demands of professional and advanced amateur digital SLR users for higher optical performance. Nikon created the DX
Nikkor series to provide Nikon DX-format digital SLR users with greater wideangle covering power. Mounting a 35mm

AF NIKKOR LENSES
When it comes to choosing photographic equipment, perhaps the
most important decision a photographer faces is which lens system
to use. For the majority of professional photographers, that choice
is simple: Nikkor. The reasons for this are many, not the least of
which is Nikon’s total commitment to controlling every aspect
of lens manufacturing. This no-compromise attitude toward
manufacturing extends performance. For each Nikkor lens is
designed to function seamlessly with Nikon SLRs. This is exemplified most clearly in the legendary Nikon F mount. Even the
most advanced Nikkor lenses incorporate this standard for its consistency and reliability. This design also ensures that when
Nikon introduces new cameras with revolutionary features such as 3D Color Matrix Metering and Multi-Sensor Balanced
Fill-Flash, you’ll always have an array of lenses available to handle these advances.
AF D-type Nikkor Lenses
AF Nikkor D-type lenses are special because they relay subject-tocamera distance information to AF Nikon camera bodies that use the
information. This makes possible new technologies like Nikon’s 3D
Color Matrix Metering and 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash.
Internal Focusing
Imagine being able to focus a lens without it changing in size. Nikon’s IF
technology enables just that. All internal optical movement is limited to
the interior of the non-extending lens barrel. This allows for a more
compact, lightweight construction as well a closer focusing distance.
Aspherical Lens Elements
Nano-Crystal Coat
Nikon introduced the first photographic lens with aspherical lens
elements in 1968. Aspherical lenses minimize the problem of coma and
other types of lens distortion—even when used at the widest aperture.
They are particularly useful in correcting the distortion in wide-angle
lenses. In addition, use of aspherical lenses contributes to a lighter and
smaller and lens design.
Nano-Crystal Coat (NCC) is derived from Nikon’s exclusive nano-technology. Using microscopic crystal particles, NCC endows a lens with a
super-low refractive index, providing superior anti-reflective properties
that virtually eliminate ghosting and flare and provide clear and vivid
images when shooting under strong sunlight or inside under spotlights.
ED Glass
Nikon developed ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass to make telephoto
lenses that offer superior sharpness and color correction by minimizing
chromatic aberration. (Chromatic aberration is a type of image and
color distortion that occurs when light rays of varying wavelengths
pass through optical glass). ED lenses deliver stunning sharpness and
contrast even at their largest maximum apertures.
Nikon Integrated Coating (NIC)
To enhance the performance of lens elements, Nikon employs
sophisticated multi-layer coating to help reduce ghost and flare to
negligible levels. Nikon Integrated Coating (NIC) minimizes reflections
over a wide wavelength range, and enhances color balancing. It is
carefully integrated into the design of each Nikkor lens type, with the
coatings calculated to match the lens type and glass.
Close-Range Correction System
Providing superior picture quality at close focusing distances and
increasing the close focus range, the Close-Range Correction (CRC)
system is one of Nikon’s most important focusing innovations. With
CRC, the lens elements are configured in “floating element” design
wherein each lens group moves independently to achieve focusing.
This ensures superior lens performance even when shooting very close.

AF-S Technology
AF-S lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM) which converts
“traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables
high-speed autofocusing that’s extremely accurate and quiet.
M/A Mode
AF-S lenses also feature Nikon’s exclusive M/A mode, that allows
switching from autofocus to manual operation with virtually no time
lag – even during AF servo operation.
Vibration Reduction System
Stability is critical for telephoto and close-up photography. Nikon
Vibration Reduction (VR) technology automatically compensates for
camera shake to ensure sharp pictures at slower shutter speeds. If you
can steadily hand-hold at 1/125 second, VR will enable you to shoot at
about 1/15 second. The system even automatically detects and compensates for panning when the camera is following a moving subject.
Defocus Image Control
A set of unique lenses for unique portraits, Defocus-Image Control
allows photographers to control the degree of spherical aberration in
the foreground or background by rotating the lens’ DC ring. This will
create a rounded out-of-focus blur that is ideal for portrait photography.

Combining fast f/2.0 performance with the precision of ‘Super ED’ Glass and
innovative Vibration Reduction (VR) technology, the AF-S VR Nikkor 200mm
f/2G IF-ED lens offers photographers razor sharp images in the most demanding
situations. It allows emphasis on subjects in portraits by rendering background
elements completely out of focus, or use it for its large aperture, superb clarity
and immense potential with VR technology for shooting in low light conditions
or from moving platforms.
Super ED glass is more resilient than typical fluorite lenses. While the optical
properties of this glass closely resemble those of fluorite, Super ED glass is
more resilient to rapid temperature changes (thermal shock)—ensuring consistent
performance even under extremely harsh shooting conditions. It also boasts a
higher refractive index, making it highly capable of correcting aberrations other than
chromatic aberration. Additionally, the unique composition of Super ED glass ensures consistency in optical properties and performance,
enabling applications in a variety of lenses including those with very large apertures.
The lens incorporates a host of convenient features within comfortable reach of photographers' natural grip, helping keep their eye on
the subject. A switch on the bottom of the lens gives fast access to the AF-L function, which allows a desired focus position to be easily
preset. The same switch can also be used to access the AF-ON function enabling more subjective focus with fine manual manipulation.

VR TELEPHOTO ZOOM LENSES
70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF VR
The AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED lens is designed with
professional and advanced amateur photographers in mind, offering them
a truly compact and lightweight telephoto zoom lens featuring some of
Nikon’s most innovative technologies. With Nikon’s advanced Vibration
Reduction technology, the lens enables photographers to make crisp, sharp
pictures by minimizing the blur caused by hand holding a camera at slow
shutter speeds and by potential shaking when shooting from a moving vehicle, aircraft or any other moving platform that induces vibration. Other
features include Manual Automatic mode (M/A) which allows for instant
switching between auto and manual focus, virtually eliminating lag time in
the transition and enabling photographers to make a last minute adjustment, even if the autofocus system has locked onto the subject. This performance is complimented by Nikon’s AF Tracking with Lock-on,
a technology that enables the system to maintain sharp focus even if the subject is momentarily obscured from view, or if the camera’s AF
sensor momentarily moves off the main subject. Includes HB-29 lens hood and CL-M2 case. Filter size is 77mm.
◆ Incorporates Extra Low Dispersion (ED) optical glass enabling
superior performance from this versatile, compact lens. Through
low dispersion characteristics the lens’ color performance is
enhanced by virtually eliminated secondary chromatic
aberrations that are common to telephoto optics that don’t
have ED glass; this technology enhances image quality with
added visible sharpness and contrast to the image.
◆ Designed for Nikon cameras with a built in Sub-Command Dial,
G-type design allows aperture control exclusively from the
camera. This facilitates better lens handling, and lets you keep
a more positive grip on the camera as you use your right index
finger to adjust aperture.
◆ Distance Technology provides precision distance information from
and fast autofocusing with superior accuracy and ultra-quiet
operation.

dramatically sharper pictures. Equipped with Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) technology and superior optical design, the AF VR 80-400mm delivers sharp images in otherwise
impossible situations. Extending hand-held picture-taking into the realm of photography
that usually requires a cumbersome tripod, sports and nature photographers can concentrate on capturing the hoop shot of the century or the flight of a rare bird knowing that
even if their hand is not steady, the images will be sharper and truer. Includes HB-24 lens
hood and CL-M1 case. Filter size is 77mm.
◆ Proprietary VR system detects and compensates for image blur
◆ Automatically detects shake that takes place during panning in
caused by camera shake. When activated, the system allows
photographers to shoot with ambient light at shutter speeds
that are slower by up to about 3 stops, when compared to the
restrictions of shooting without vibration reduction.
any direction. And there is no need to stop and reset the lens
for panning action; it happens automatically.
◆ The VR system uses angular speed sensors that detect minute
shifts in camera movement. Data from the sensors is used to
calculate the change in position and drive voice coil motors to
shift the position of the VR lens element.
◆ Three ED glass elements reduce secondary chromatic
aberrations and help the lens provide significantly sharper
pictures throughout the 80-400mm zoom range.
◆ Also features Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating, a nine-blade
diaphragm for rounder more natural highlights, and A/M
switch for fast switching from auto to manual focus.

EVOLT E-330/410/510
7.5-and 10-Megapixel Digital SLRs
‘with Live View LCD
The EVOLT E-330, E-410 and E-510 are the world’s only digital SLRs to
offer “Live” viewing through their LCD monitor, making it easier to
compose and capture the perfect shot.
Live View LCD enables framing of shots without the need to look
through the viewfinder, allowing photographers for the first time to
comfortably view the image they are taking no matter what position
their camera is placed in – a significant advantage for reporting or
sports photographers. As the image is relayed live on the bright LCD
screen, framing the subject is made much easier in situations when using
a conventional viewfinder is too awkward, such as when photographing underwater. On the E-330, versatility is extended
even further as the articulated LCD can be tilted or swivelled to virtually any angle.
They also offer a standard TTL optical viewfinder with built-in diopter adjustment, 3 fps burst mode, built-in flash as well
as a hot-shoe for an external flash, five metering modes, and dozens of exposure and easy-to-use scene select modes. For
convenience, they offer dual memory slots for Compact Flash, Microdrives and xD-Picture Cards.
Combined with 7.5-megapixel (E-330) and 10-megapixel (E-410/E-510) MOS sensor for
high speed and sensitivity, world-class optics designed specifically for digital
photography and Olympus’ patented Dust Reduction System, they let you shoot like
no other digital interchangeable lens SLR camera.
In addition to their higher resolution, they E-410 and E510 step-up with new
TruePic III processing for superior image quality in all lighting situations, and a
Super Control Panel with the capability to display dozens of shooting parameters.
The E-510 adds mechanical image stabilization with Supersonic Wave Drive
technology to provide blur-free images taken with any Zuiko digital-specific lens.

Live View LCD
With Olympus Live View LCD, you have the freedom to choose how to compose your shots—using the
LCD or traditional optical viewfinder. Live View LCD empowers you to easily compose your subjects live
on the 160° wide (E-330) or 176° wide (E-410/E-510) 2.5˝ HyperCrystal LCD before the shot has been
taken, offering a level of versatility that can not be achieved by other digital SLRs that only offer an
optical viewfinder. By holding the camera away from your face and using the Live View LCD to compose,
it’s possible to shoot upward from a low angle for dramatic composition, in close for detailed macro
photography, or photographing a parade over a crowd of people. Interacting with subjects, such as toddlers
and pets, is also now possible thanks to the Live View LCD. Capture life just the way you see it. For the
first time in a digital SLR, you can use the LCD as an active, versatile tool for framing and shooting.
With the exclusive Olympus Live View LCD, you can follow action easily and capture just the right moment. For portraits, you can wait until exactly
the right facial expression appears. What you see on the Live View LCD is what you get, from wide angles to accurate depth of field preview.
On all three cameras you get 100% Live View coverage and TTL auto exposure. The E-330 offers 7x magnification, the E-410/E-510 offer 7/10x. On
the E-330 (only) the LCD is ‘articulated’ — it can extend out from the camera body and swivel downward or upward, so you don’t have to stretch or
bend to capture a great image. Hold your camera high to shoot over a crowd. Hold it low for dramatic composition or in tight on your subject for detailed close-ups and macro photos. On the E-410/E-510 there is an AF frame display, shooting information display, IS activating mode, heat warning
and real-time histogram.

Dust Free Technology for Spot-Free Photos
◆ Five metering modes including a 49-point
AE sensor providing accurate exposure
values for ESP metering using an advanced
evaluation algorithm, as well as conventional
center-weighted average and spot metering
For tricky lighting situations highlight spot
metering (for clean, true whites with detail)
and shadow spot metering (for rich, dark
blacks with detail) is available to give ultra
precise control.
◆ Dedicated auto focus system offers 3
selectable AF points for accurate auto focus
operation. When automatic target zone
selection is active, a superimposed display
confirms the relevant target zone. Focus
modes are set via a manual switch for Single
AF, Continuous AF, and Manual Focus
operation. To ensure successful focusing in
the darkest environments, they utilize an AF
illuminator built into the flash.
◆ Four recording formats offer the flexibility
to control the quality of images and how
they're used. JPEG (for the fastest operation
and greatest number of photos); RAW (for
the highest-quality images); RAW+JPEG
(when you need the flexibility of both); and
TIFF (best image right out of your camera).
◆ Three color parameters to control color
saturation, contrast and sharpness levels
separately for each file. Select from Vivid
(for printer-ready colors, Natural (for true,
accurate colors) or Muted (ideal for Photoshop users who enhance and scale images).
◆ Five black-and-white monochrome modes
add dramatic effects to your black-andwhite pictures with tones of yellow, orange,
red, green and normal (no filter).
◆ Create exotic sepia toned photos or add
blue, green or purple tones to your blackand-white images. Contrast, sharpness and
tone controls allow you to customize settings that best suit your subject.
◆ Two color space settings let you add more
colors and details for commercial work.
Select from sRGB for easy viewing on your
computer and printing on your inkjet or
dye sublimation printer – or Adobe RGB.
◆ AE
Lock; exposure compensation of ±5 EV
in ±1, 2/3, or 1/3 EV steps; 3-frame exposure
bracketing in ±1, 2/3, or 1/3 EV steps.
◆ Noise reduction function uses a proprietary
Olympus algorithm to detect and eliminate
the fixed noise that can appear on longexposure images.
You rarely get a second
chance in photography.
The ideal moment is
unrepeatable. Yet the tiniest
spec of dust entering the
camera during a lens change
could ruin a perfect photo.
Since dust is all around us,
when swapping out a lens
on a digital SLR camera
there’s a chance that a
camera’s electro-statically charged image sensor will attract micro dust that can ruin photos.
In analog cameras, the dust particles were transported away as the film was wound on. This
meant that usually only one picture was affected. In contrast, dust landing on the image sensor of
a digital camera stays where it is – and more will join it over time. Even the smallest particle can
cover hundreds of pixels. This results in image flaws that must be corrected through subsequent
editing. In addition, photographers must endure the time and expense associated with regular
professional cleaning that consequently becomes necessary – which sometimes even requires the
camera to be sent away for servicing. Since the main advantage of using an SLR camera is the
ability to change lenses for better imaging effects, Olympus developed a way for photographers to
change lenses in the most challenging, dusty environments without compromising image quality.
Olympus’ Dust Reduction System produces spot-free photos with the exclusive Supersonic Wave
Filter, a patented ultrasonic technology that removes dust from in front of the camera sensor.
These spot-free photos liberate users from hours spent retouching photographs at the computer.
All Evolt E-Series cameras are equipped with this exclusive user-friendly technology. Each time
the E-330, E-410, E-500 or E510 are turned on, the system goes into action. The Super Sonic Wave
Filter vibrates 35,000 times a second, shaking dust loose from the image sensor –dust particles are
shaken off within milliseconds— then captured on a special adhesive membrane within the camera,
preventing their appearance on your photographs.
Evolt E-500 8-Megapixel Digital SLR
The most full-featured digital SLR in it’s class, the 100%
digital E-500 has all the features of the E-330 with
the exception of the ‘Live View’ articulating LCD.
Designed to be used by all photographers of any
skill level, the 8-megapixel E-500’s compact
and durable body features Dust Reduction
System for spot-free photos, TruePic
TURBO Image Processor for fast
response time, and easy-to-view 2.5˝
HyperCrystal LCD.
The E-500 epitomizes the Olympus
tradition of combining maximum
technical performance with exceptional
design. This especially applies to operability. Perfect ergonomics enable intuitive handling
which even lets beginners get the hang of things quickly so they can start shooting
immediately. From a technical perspective, the E-500 offers all manual and automatic
functions required for professional D-SLR applications. In terms of size and weight, it is
easier than ever before to take this camera along on holidays, assignments or wherever
you might need it.

2.5˝ HyperCrystal LCD
Cutting-edge technology is at the heart of the incredibly clear and
crisp view provided by the 2.5˝ HyperCrystal LCD included on
all Evolt E-Series cameras. Much like the immediate difference
you see when viewing images on an HDTV in comparison to a
standard television screen, the distinction between your photos
on the HyperCrystal LCD as opposed to them being viewed on a
typical display panel are night and day.
HyperCrystal LCD’s feature semi-transmissive technology, meaning the LCD utilizes an
additional layer that reflects light from any external light source – both indoors and outdoors to enhance the brightness of the LCD for a remarkably sharp view of images and movies, even in
direct sunlight. All parameters of the camera settings are displayed large and clearly.

shutter openings for longer exposures.
Megapixel Image Sensors
The E-330’s 7.5-megapixel, and the E-410/510’s
10-megapixel image sensor give photographers
the flexibility to blow up their prints to the
large sizes supported by many of today’s
printers, or crop the image to print only a part
of the image that is important to them. Their
high-performance Live MOS image sensors
deliver excellent dynamic range for accurate
color fidelity, and a state-of-the-art amplifier
circuit eradicate noise and captures fine image
details in the highlight and shadow areas.

JPEG images and extreme speed Compact Flash cards.
World’s Largest Selection of Digital Specific Lenses
The versatility of the E-System comes from the largest selection of
“Designed-for-Digital” lenses. Olympus’ Zuiko Digital Specific Lenses
come in a wide range of focal lengths for achieving the best image result,
and impress with their spectacular clarity and edge-to-edge sharpness.
Most other digital SLR cameras still use traditional 35mm film
lenses. But since those lenses are based on designs for film and
not for pixels, they deliver insufficient light at the edges of a
digital camera’s image sensor. This can result in reduced
sharpness and color definition, particularly when shooting with
large apertures and wide-angle lenses. Zuiko Digital Lense are
designed for digital capture with smart technology that allows the
lenses to communicate with the camera to ensure the best possible
image quality. Olympus dedicated digital optics coupled with an Evolt system camera renders
sharpness and contrast more consistently at any given f-stop. The lenses are matched to the Four
Thirds System standard image sensor for the optimal balance between image quality, camera and
lens size, and expandability.
Mechanical Image Stabilization (E-510 Only)
Unlike other digital SLR cameras in its class, the E-510 employs Mechanical Image Stabilization,
which compensates for camera movement. This new technology complements Digital Image
Stabilization, which compensates for a moving subject. Combined, Mechanical Image Stabilization
and Digital Image Stabilization provide a powerful solution, ensuring blur-free photos even in
active shooting situations where photographers may encounter camera shake or a moving
subject. This powerful combination resides within the camera's body, translating to blur-free
images taken with any of the more than 30 digital-specific lenses.

LUMIX DMC-L1
7.5-Megapixels 4/3 System Digital SLR Camera
Panasonic’s first digital single-lens reflex (SLR) camera with an interchangeable
lens, the DMC-L1 delivers clear, detailed, beautiful imaging, free of unwanted
digital characteristics, and allows advanced photographers and hobbyists
alike satisfying, intuitive shooting from a digital SLR.”
It is equipped with a Leica D Vario-Elmarit lens featuring an optical image
stabilization system – MEGA O.I.S – designed specifically for the Leica lens.
It features a magnesium-alloy body, which closely resembles a rangefinder
camera from years ago, and combines an aluminum-alloy lens section to
offer both high rigidity and a high-grade appearance. The DMC-L1 ensures
picture quality through incorporation of a Live MOS image sensor and a lens
mount system that conforms to the Four Thirds Standard. A full-time Live View
function uses a signal output directly from the Live MOS sensor, allowing users to
view the same image on the LCD screen as seen by the sensor and to compose shots with greater ease and accuracy. The camera
also offers a dust reduction system using a Supersonic Wave Filter that eliminates the problem of dust adhering to the sensor.
F EAT UR E S
7.5-Megapixel
4/3-type Live MOS Sensor
◆ The ideal sensor for DSLR cameras, the Live
MOS sensor delivers the same high image
quality as a CCD sensor with the low power
consumption of a CMOS sensor. The L1
uses a new readout circuit providing a
greater photoreceptive area per pixel than a
conventional CMOS sensor can provide.
The result is the type of wide dynamic range
that makes it possible to capture detailed,
expressive images with rich gradation.
◆ The Live MOS sensor not only slashes noise,
it embeds the photodiodes deeply into the
silicon layer, where they are resistant to noise.
This suppresses the rough image texture that
is sometimes noticeable (like viewing an
image through a dirty window) when
shooting in dim lighting, giving you clear,
smooth shots even in difficult conditions.
Leica D Vario-Elmarit 14-50mm f/2.8-3.5 ASPH. Lens
◆ Maker of
lenses that have captured some of
the world's most memorable photographs,
Leica has created its first interchangeable lens
exclusively for the digital SLR. The Leica D
lens series (‘D’ for digital), developed jointly
by Leica and Panasonic specifically for digital
photography, is an advanced lens that fuses
leading-edge optical and digital technologies
at an uncompromisingly high level. As it
joins the digital SLR arena,
Panasonic has also chosen to adopt the Four
Thirds™ system in order to maximize the
advantages of both image sensor and lens.
The D lens inherits the smooth tonal
expression and rich shading that make Leica
lenses the choice of both professional and
amateur photographers the world over.
PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
f/2.8-3.5 brightness from 28mm wide-angle
to 100mm telephoto (35mm equivalent).
With 16 lens elements in 12 groups,
including two glass-molded dual-sided
large diameter aspherical lenses, the D
Vario-Elmarit lens delivers a superb optical
performance.
◆ The lens minimizes distortion in wide-angle
shots and suppresses the loss of peripheral
resolution. An excellent multi-coating
process helps reduce ghosts and flaring. The
lens provides the sharpness, high resolution
and superb color reproduction that convey
even the ambience around a subject. The lens
barrel is fitted with an aperture ring for a
new level of easy, intuitive operation.
Minimum Hand-Shake with MEGA O.I.S.
◆ For accurate imaging, light must strike the
sensor at a perpendicular angle. When a lens
designed for a film camera is used, light from
the edge of the image area enters at an angle,
resulting in inaccurate color reproduction or
dark areas. The L1 uses a lens mount with
about twice the diameter of the image circle.
Light strikes the sensor at an almost
perpendicular angle, so images are clear and
accurate all the way to the edges.
◆ This wide-aperture zoom lens provides
The D lens features Panasonic's advanced optical image stabilizing system—MEGA O.I.S., making
it possible to take clear, sharp macro and low-light shots. With MEGA O.I.S., the Venus Engine operates 4,000 times per second to detect the amount and direction of hand-shake, and then shifts a
corrective lens accordingly. Light entering the camera is kept on a straight path as it passes
through the lens to the image sensor. Because the shake is corrected entirely within the lens, the
image is preserved with original quality intact. Built into the lens, the Venus Engine provides
quick, precise image processing for superb image stabilizing control. This permits the DMC-L1 to
shoot beautiful shots, without a tripod, in situations where you cannot use a flash or in evening
light. You get easier shooting and a wider range of expressive possibilities to explore.

LUMIX DMC-L1
Venus Engine III
Live View LCD
◆ The DMC-L1 features the Venus Engine III.
The full-time Live View system is well suited to the coming generation of digital still cameras that
pursue the true “joy of shooting”. The DMC-L1’s full-time Live View makes it easy to focus and
frame precisely on the 2.5˝ LCD monitor, which has superb 207,000-pixel image quality and a
virtually 100% field of view.
This image-processing LSI precisely reproduces the magnificent images that are
captured by the Leica D lens and sent to the
Live MOS sensor. Its color expression
maximizes the beauty of the original image
to produce highly natural picture quality.
This superb performance makes the Venus
Engine III an ideal match for the DMC-L1.
– The noise-reduction system distinguishes
luminance noise from the chromatic noise
that diminishes image quality, and selectively
targets the chromatic noise. Even when
shooting at a high ISO setting (ranges from
standard ISO 100 to very sensitive ISO
1600), you can capture abundant detail and
get smooth, clear shots with minimal noise.
– The L1 is built for spectacular high-speed
shooting, with a startup of only 0.8 second
and burst shooting at 3 frames per second.
The shutter works as fast as you do. The L1
has unlimited consecutive shooting. You can
keep shooting until the memory card is full,
and choose the best shots later.
– The Venus Engine III combines superb speed
and precision with low power consumption.
Together with the Live MOS sensor’s low
power consumption, this means more
shooting time between battery charges.
Enjoy extended shooting sessions without
worrying about the battery, even while
taking advantage of the L1’s many functions.
In this system, a mirror flips up, directing the same light to both the Live MOS sensor and the
LCD monitor. Full-time Live View operates for auto focusing. When you’re focusing manually,
full-time Live View lets you magnify a part of the image by 10x for greater focusing precision.
The DMC-L1’s large, high-image-quality LCD gives you a precise preview of the depth of field
without darkening , as the display is bright and easy to see. Checking the results of the 2-axis
white balance adjustment on the full-time Live View screen also assures more precise adjustment
before shooting. These versatile functions bring forth completely new shooting styles for SLR
cameras, and expand the possibilities for photo expression.
Choose the Mode that Best Suits your Creative Intent
The DMC-L1’s Film mode function lets you select from several different image looks according to
the subject you're shooting and your creative intent. When shooting in color, you can choose from
Standard, Dynamic, Nature, and Smooth. With black and white, you can choose from Standard,
Dynamic, and Smooth. You can also adjust the contrast, sharpness, saturation and noise reduction
levels, to reproduce exactly the mood and atmosphere you want. With these functions, the
DMC-L1 is a digital camera that gives you the same kind of flexibility and satisfaction you enjoy
when choosing film for a film camera.
Built-In Flash for Lighting Versatility
Choose from five flash settings, or use Bounce Lighting or 1st Curtain/2nd Curtain Sync.
Exposure can be adjusted ±2 EV in 1/3 EV steps. A hot shoe is provided. Optional compatible
flashes allow TTL auto adjustment. The new FP Lighting function also synchronizes the flash at
the lightning shutter speed of 1/4000 sec. This greatly expands shooting possibilities by allowing
more versatile and precise lighting control.
Records To SD Cards
The DMC-L1 is compatible with Secure Digital (SD) Memory Cards, and is compatible with the
mass-storage SD standard based on FAT32 and SDHC super-high-capacity SD Memory Cards
with capacities of more than 2 GB.
Light Metering
◆ Three light metering methods let you read
delicate lighting differences and accurately
match shooting conditions.
The Digital SLR that Feels the Way a Camera Should
– Use Intelligent Multiple light metering to
divide the image frame into 49 blocks for
multiple-zone light measurement.
– Or choose either Center Weighted or Spot
light metering. As for the focusing area, the
auto focus system employs a TTL phase
difference detection system with three
measuring points across a wide image area.
You can also specify a particular point as the
focal point. This can be useful in certain
shooting situations or shooting techniques.
◆ Auto Bracket mode permits up to 5 pictures
to be recorded in the selected exposure
compensation range each time the shutter
button is pressed.
An operating feel that is both perfectly intuitive
and deeply satisfying. A level of responsiveness
to capture even the most fleeting moment.
An expressive ability that inspires creativity.
Panasonic developed the Lumix L1 by delving
into the essence of the single lens reflex
camera and image creation. They combined
the first interchangeable lens designed by Leica
specifically for the digital SLR camera with the
advanced technologies that make Panasonic a
world leader in digital imaging. They ended
with a ground-breaking digital SLR that stands
apart from all the others.

LUMIX DMC-L1
Photographic Tool
Dust Reduction System—Protecting the Image Sensor
Designed to be a tool that photographers will
find both comfortable in their hands and a joy
to use – a camera that looks, feels and works
the way a finely crafted camera should. The
DMC-L1 is designed to deliver total satisfaction – in operation, performance and results.
One of the risks with a digital SLR camera is that, during a lens change, dust or dirt could make
its way into the camera and adhere to the image sensor. This would show up as a flaw in the same
location of every photo you shoot. Even worse, the foreign matter could damage the image sensor.
The only remedy would be to have the image sensor replaced – a costly undertaking. The L1
solves this problem with a supersonic wave Dust Reduction System. Each time the camera is
turned on, a filter positioned between the low pass filter and shutter vibrates around 30,000 times
a second to shake away dust or dirt. The loosened dust is collected by a dust adhesion section located under the filter. Because the area between sensor and filter is completely airtight, no dust
adheres to the low pass filter or image sensor. This advanced supersonic wave filter requires no
maintenance. If you use a digital SLR camera with interchangeable lenses, this kind of advanced
protection against dust is absolutely essential.
The DMC-L1 features analog-like controls that
feel comfortable and instantly familiar. Easily
adjust settings with the touch of a fingertip,
check them with a quick glance, and set the
exposure intuitively. Turn the aperture ring with
your left hand (which supports the lens) and
operate the shutter speed dial with your right
hand (holding the camera body). These two
controls adjust the exposure, which is critical in
picture quality. For photographers who consider
the way a camera feels an important part of
photo shooting, the DMC-L1 is a revolutionary
digital camera. It's easy to use and feels just
right in your hands. Each time you make a
1/3-EV step adjustment of either the shutter
speed or the aperture, the camera responds with
a reassuring click.
Bundled Software
LUMIX Simple Viewer:
This software is used to upload JPEG images taken by the
DMC-L1 to a PC, and easily manage, edit or correct them. It

Responsive Aperture Ring
Photographers who appreciate the feeling of
creating photo images place top priority on
the camera's operation. The DMC-L1 takes
operation a big step beyond conventional
digital SLR lenses by adding an aperture ring
to the lens barrel, alongside the zoom ring and
wide focus ring. You can set the aperture from
2.8 to 22 in 1/3 EV steps. This combines with
the shutter speed dial to give you quick,
precise, intuitive control over the exposure
setting. You'll feel a distinct click as you turn
the aperture ring. This not only enhances your
sense of control, it lets the photographer and
camera become one.
Familiar Shutter Speed Dial
The shutter speed dial and shutter button are
positioned along the same axis on the camera
top. They feel instantly familiar to your fingers
and provide comfortable, intuitive operation.
In manual mode, you can use the shutter
speed dial and cursor button to set the speed
from 1/4,000 to 60 seconds, or you can select
bulb shooting. The 1/160-sec X-sync speed
provides a wide response to flash shots.
Because the dial is right there for you to see,
operation is quick and easy.

The K110D and
K100D offers
the outstanding
benefit of lens
interchangeability
that allows users
to take advantage of
almost all existing Pentax
interchangeable lenses. (Pentax K, KA, KAF
and KAF2-mount 35mm-format lenses can
be used without an adapter or modification.
Pentax screw-mount 35mm-format lenses
and Pentax 645- and 67-system lenses can be
used with an adapter. Some functions may
not be available with certain lenses.)
Shake Reduction (SR) System —K100D Only
The K100D is equipped with the Pentax-developed Shake Reduction
(SR) system, which effectively reduces camera shake for sharp, blurfree images even under difficult shooting conditions, such as using
a telephoto lens, shooting in the dark or at night without extra flash
illumination, or using extended exposures for sunset scenes. The SR
mechanism incorporated in the K100D is designed to minimize
camera shake by oscillating the CCD image sensor vertically and horizontally at high speed
using magnetic force, while adjusting the speed of oscillation in proportion to the amount
of camera shake detected by a built-in sensor. As a result, it does not require special
anti-shake lenses, and can be used with almost all existing Pentax interchangeable lenses.
◆ The SR system is activated only when
you press the shutter release, any effect
on battery consumption is negligible.
◆ Leave SR on, turning it off
only when
using a tripod or panning (deliberately
moving the camera in the direction of
subject motion to blur the background).
◆ AF speed, shutter lag time and continu-
ous shooting rate are unaffected, because
SR operation is instantaneous, occurring
within the normal exposure interval.
◆ By building the system into the body, SR
provides maximum flexibility and requires
no compromises in optical quality.
◆ To provide optimal shake reduction, the
camera must “know” the focal length of
the lens in use. Pentax F, FA, D-FA, and
DA lenses automatically relay focal
length information to the camera. With
older lenses, users can manually input
focal length information via the SR
menu which allows focal lengths all the
way from 8- 800mm.

SD-14
14-Megapixel Digital SLR with
Foveon X3 Technology
Featuring the revolutionary Foveon X3 image sensor—which can capture
all RGB colors at each and every pixel—the SD-14 records sharper pictures
with truer colors and fewer artifacts than CCD-equipped cameras. The
colors produced by this three-layered image sensor, which works like
photographic film, create high definition images, rich in gradation and
with impressive three-dimensional detail. There's absolutely no loss or
distortion of the optical data which is transformed into a faithful image,
with no omissions.
The SD14 features a 5-point AF system, records three modes of RAW data and four modes of JPEG, has a bright pentaprism
viewfinder with 98% coverage, built-in flash, 2.5˝ 150,000-pixel LCD monitor, and an easy-to-use multi-function interface. It
offers high speed continuous shooting of 3 fps, mirror lock-up mechanism to prevent camera shake and an image sensor dust
protector. The durable shutter mechanism has a lifespan of over 100,000 cycles, and is ideal for the demands of professional
digital photography. For complete image management, it includes the versatile and easy-to-use Sigma Phot Pro 3.0 software.
Sigma designed the SD14 to free you up to concentrate on getting the shot, that you should be free to simply take great pictures.
That was the design policy for the SD14. They eliminated cumbersome operations and unnecessary extra functions, replacing
them with an intuitive user interface, and rigorously honing the camera's basic performance until it was capable of handling
the most difficult conditions. The SD14 doesn’t have any superfluous, complex functions. Just like a film camera, it combines
high performance with structural simplicity. That’s all you need. Once you’ve got these essentials, top-class image data and
your own inspiration will guarantee good photos. Just follow your heart, open your eyes, and press the shutter.

14-Megapixel Foveon X3 Direct Image Processor
All cameras have evolved to capture the moment better.
To create a more vivid record of emotion. To deliver
better image quality, better performance, better everything. Digital cameras are the ultimate in technology.
Yet, when it comes to conveying atmosphere, texture and
other ineffable qualities perceived by the human eye, they
just don't compare with old-fashioned film cameras.
A digital camera takes in basic optical data, and spins it into beautifullycolored shapes. We take this mechanism for granted, but it achieves its
results at the expense of true optical fidelity. With the SD14, no optical
data is lost. There's no distortion. Light is transformed into a faithful
image, with nothing left out. High image quality isn’t achieved by
manipulating optical data artificially, and synthesizing colors. The SD14
uses a unique direct image sensor capable of detecting red, green and
blue light at every single pixel. The elements of this sensor are arranged
in three color sensing layers, comparable to the three layers of emulsion
in photographic film. The result is a camera that reflects the user’s visual
sensitivity, and gives fresh impact. It also delivers the kind of extremely
vivid feel and texture that overturn existing standards of image quality.

It’s unique. It's groundbreaking. It’s an image sensor that
reproduces colors as faithfully as film. The conventional
image sensors used in most DSLR cameras can only detect
light intensity. Using a color filter, they use complex
computations to fill in the gaps in their color perception,
interpolating colors that aren't really there, and artificially
synthesizing hypothetical hues. This essential weakness
of the color synthesis mechanism is why most digital cameras produce
images that are sharply-defined, but weak on natural texture.
Thanks to the Foveon X3, a unique and ground-breaking direct image
sensor, the SD14 turns conventional wisdom on its head. The Foveon
X3 has three layers of color-sensing pixels — one for red light, one for
green and one for blue — just like the three layers of emulsion in
photographic film.
These three layers capture absolutely all the color directly, and record it
faithfully. Color is recorded without any distortion, creating an extremely vivid feel which out-performs the pixel count by a long way.
The image quality is pure, and the colors feel satisfyingly natural.

◆ Auto focus sensor features 5 focusing points
The SD14 features a large 2.5˝ 150,000 pixel resolution LCD
monitor. The LCD monitor displays 100% of the image,
allowing the photographer to easily and accurately confirm
the image composition. It features playback options
including single frame, thumbnail display (9 images),
and three types of magnification (which is achieved by use
of the 4-way controller). Shutter speed, aperture and other
settings can be seen by pressing the INFO button. The large
menu interface makes reviewing images and navigating
menu options easy.
(center, left, right, up and down) ensuring
consistently fast and precise focusing. The
AF metering features a cross type sensor in
the center of the screen. Selecting the AF
point can be done automatically or manually
by photographer.
Pentaprism Viewfinder
The SD14 is equipped with a newly developed
pentaprism viewfinder, which has 98%
(vertical and horizontal) coverage with 0.9x
magnification, an 18mm eye point and –3 to
+1.5 dpt dioptric adjustment.
Metering Modes
◆ The SD14 is equipped with three types of
metering mode: 8-segment Evaluative
Metering, Center Area Metering and Center
Weighted Average Metering. This enables the
photographer to select the metering mode
depending on subject and situation.
Exposure compensation function allows the
photographer to override the exposure value
set by the camera’s exposure meter.
◆ Auto Bracketing function allows the expo-
sure to be adjusted by 1/3 EV increments up
to ±3 EV from the exposure automatically
set by the camera. In situations where it is
difficult to determine proper exposure, the
auto bracketing function allows a sequence
of pictures to be taken of the same subject at
three different exposure levels; Appropriate
Exposure, Under and Over Exposure.
High Speed
Continuous Shooting
◆ Features a continuous shooting speed of
3 frames per second. Continuous shooting
can be accomplished in conjunction with the
camera’s predictive auto focus function
when photographing fast moving subjects.
The camera’s high-speed image processing
circuits are capable of handling large data
files generated by the high-resolution 14
megapixel sensor. The number of images
that can be captured in continuous shooting
mode is dependent upon the resolution setting; High - 6 frames, Medium - 12 frames
and Low - 24 frames. These figures apply in
either RAW or JPEG mode.
Built-in Flash
The camera’s built-in flash offers an angle of
coverage of 17mm (35mm equivalent of 28mm)
with 35mm full size) lens with a guide number of
11 (ISO 100). Built-in flash can be synchronized
to a shutter speed up to 1/180 sec. This built-in
flash enables automatic S-TTL shooting,
which allows simple, easy control of advanced
photography techniques.
Easy-to-Use Multifunction Interface
The layout of control buttons insures quick identification of the desired functions and easy use
of the multifunction interface in operating camera settings. Clearly marked buttons make it easy
for the photographer to display and adjust the most important settings, namely ISO, resolution,
JPEG quality and file type, and white balance on one screen, using one button. The top LCD
panel incorporates a backlight, which enables the camera to be easily controlled in low light or
dark conditions.
Versatile and Easy-to-Use SIGMA Photo Pro 3.0 Software
The SD14 comes complete with SIGMA Photo Pro 3.0 software, a RAW image developer that
converts all RAW data quickly and easily. Adjustments can be made in three separate modes. The
X3F Mode stores the original settings of the image at the point of capture. In the Auto Adjustment
Mode, the software analyzes and automatically makes adjustments to the RAW data. The Custom
Mode allows the photographer to make individual adjustments
(exposure, contrast, shadow, highlight, saturation, sharpness
and fill-light for example). The photographer can make subtle
or dramatic changes easily and quickly by simply adjusting the
slider controls within the software.
The X3F Mode stores the original settings of the image at point
of capture. Photographers` personal modifications can be saved
to the RAW, X3F file for future use.
SIGMA Photo Pro 3.0 supports 8-bit TIFF, 16-bit TIFF, and
JPEG file formats and also outputs images in sRGB, Apple RGB,
Adobe RGB and ColorMatch RGB color spaces. The default
setting for output resolution is the same as the resolution
selected when capturing the image on the camera (High,
Medium, or Low). It is also possible to half it, (for sending via
e-mails) or double it for high quality enlargements, max. 18.58
million pixels (5,280 x 3,520 pixels).

SD-14
High Performance
SD-14 Specifications
◆ Most digital SLR cameras are typically vul-
nerable to dust entering the body especially
when the lens is removed for changing. Dust
and dirt entering through the lens mount of
a digital camera can be seriously detrimental
to image quality. The dust protector of the
SD14 prevents dust from entering and adhering to the image sensor. Even if dust adheres to the dust protector it will not have
an adverse influence on image quality as the
dust protector is located away from the
image sensor and is therefore out of focus.
◆ The durable focal plane shutter mechanism
has life cycle of over 100,000 exposures. The
shutter is ideally suited to the requirements
of digital cameras. This new shutter dramatically reduces the amount of dust and dirt
from the shutter mechanism. The photographer can enjoy taking pictures without worrying about dirt and dust adhering to the
image sensor either from inside or outside
the camera.
◆ The mirror lock-up mechanism raises the
mirror thus preventing vibration when the
shutter is released. This prevents camera
shake, and is especially effective for macro
photography, using extremely long telephoto
lenses or scientific work. Use of a remote
controller (sold separately) or cable release
(sold separately) also reduces the possibility
of camera shake.
◆ The top LCD panel allows the photographer
to quickly and accurately confirm information such as resolution setting, metering
mode, battery status, and the number of images that can be recorded on the CF card. It
also incorporates an orange backlight which
enables the camera to be easily controlled in
low light or dark conditions.
◆ The BP-21 Lithium-ion battery (included)
lets you take approximately 500 images on
one full charge. It takes about two hours to
fully charge with the BC-21 Charger (also
included). The optional PG-21 Power Grip
has a vertical shutter release button and can
hold two BP-21 batteries, supplying more
than enough power for most shoots. Can
also be powered via optional AC adapter.
◆ The SD14 records to CompactFlash (Type
I/II) and Microdrive cards. Has a USB 2.0
port and can be used with over 40 Sigma
lenses such as ultra-wide, ultra-telephoto,
macro, and fisheye.

AF Lenses for Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Sigma & Sony
As the world’s largest independent
manufacturer of zoom and fixed focal
length lenses, Sigma offers a highly
innovative and creative selection of
lenses ranging from 8mm to 800mm
and virtually everything in between.
The lenses offer a high level of
performance, easy handling and
advanced optical precision to create
profound and emotional images.
Sigma lenses are built with
corresponding mounts to make them fully compatible with digital cameras from Canon, Nikon, Sony/Minolta, Pentax,
Olympus, Panasonic, Leica, and of course, Sigma.
Sigma digital camera lenses come in two flavors, DC (Digital Camera) and DG (Digital)
For DC digital SLR camera lenses, the image circle has been designed to match the image elements which correspond to the APS-C size. These
high performance lenses combine the technologies and know-how for lens power arrangement, coating design, etc., accumulated during years of
developing lenses for analog SLR cameras, with up-to-date digital image technology. Reduction of the inner circle diameter makes it possible to
reduce their size and the weight, and contribute widely to the handling characteristics at the time of taking pictures.
The most suitable lenses for 35mm film as well as digital SLR cameras, Sigma’s DG range of lenses concentrate on the correction of distortion and
aberrations. Magnification of chromatic abberation is particularly conspicuous with digital cameras. The optical design and cutting-edge technology
incorporated by Sigma eliminates flare and ghosting from the image sensor and creates excellent color balance. Vignetting is minimized while
marginal illumination is ensured.

Sigma Advanced Lens Technology
Sigma has refined optical technology, in order to fully realize the possibilities of single lens reflex cameras and to respond exactly to the demands of the photographer, helping him to bring his vision to reality. Sigma’s huge choice of lenses enables photo
enthusiasts to maximize their creativity. Each and every Sigma lens offers optimum optical performance and smooth handling
characteristics through a combination of experience and advanced technology. Sigma’s design and precision engineering helps
photographers to maximize their true creativity by fulfilling the full potential of their cameras.
Aspherical Lenses
EX Lens
The aspherical lens complex allows freedom of design, improved
performance, a reduced number of component lenses and a compact
size. This lens provides high optical performance while maintaining a
compact size. For example, the 12-24 mm F4.5-5.6 EX DG ASPHERICAL
lens widens the range of wide-angle lenses, and it provides distortion-free
images with image reproduction performance equivalent to that of a
single focal length lens. Aspherical lenses allow the production of highquality images from compact, lightweight telephoto zoom lenses.
The exterior of this lens is EX-finished to denote the superior build and
optical quality, and to enhance its appearance.
Hyper-Sonic Motor
This lens uses a motor driven by ultrasonic waves to provide a quiet,
highspeed AF.
Inner Focus
To ensure stability in focusing, this lens moves the inner lens group or
groups without changing the lens’ physical length.
APO Lens
In order to attain the highest quality images, the APO lens has been made
using special low-dispersion (SLD) glass and is designed to minimize
color aberration. Sigma's APO zoom lenses minimize color aberration.
As the refractive index of glass depends on the wavelength of light,
color aberration occurs when different colors form images at different
points. This problem often occurs with telephoto lenses, but the Special
Low-Dispersion (SLD) glass and Extraordinary Low Dispersion (ELD)
used in Sigma's APO lenses helps to compensate for color aberration,
thereby allowing them to produce of sharp images.
APO Teleconverter EX
This lens can be used with the APO Teleconverter EX. It can increase
the focal length and will interface with the camera's AE (automatic
exposure) function.
OS (Optical Stabilizer) Function
This function dramatically expands photographic possibilities by
alleviating camera movement when shooting by hand held camera.
The OS (Optical Stabilizer) function uses two sensors inside the lens to
detect both vertical and horizontal movement of the camera. It then
moves an optical image stabilizing lens group, to effectively compensate
for camera shake. The system has two optical stabilizer modes. Mode 1
determines camera shake in vertical and horizontal panning and
compensates for image blurring. It is therefore effective for taking
general photography or for shooting landscapes and other static
subjects. Mode 2 detects vertical camera shake and compensates for
blurring. It is effective for panning the camera to photograph moving
subjects such as motor sports.
MACRO LENSES
50mm f2.8 EX DG Macro
To maintain high optical performance from infinity to close-up 1:1 macro photos without accessories,
the Sigma 50mm f/2.8 EX DG incorporates a “Floating Internal Focusing” (FIF) system. As a result,
the lens also features a non-rotating front lens group which makes it easier to work with polarizing

TELEPHOTO ZOOM LENSES
APO 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 EX OS
An ultra-telephoto zoom lens with a built-in image stabilizer to eliminate blur caused by camera
shake. Two modes compensate for image blurring. Mode 1 determines the camera shake in vertical
and horizontal panning and compensates blurring, which is effective when shooting static subjects.
Mode 2 detects the vertical camera shake, and overcomes blurring. It is especially effective with
moving subjects such as motor sports etc.
New multi layer lens coating and lens design reduce flare and ghost, which is a common problem
with digital cameras and also creates an optimum color balance through the entire zoom range. Two
Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements in the front lens group and one in the rear group offer
effective control of color aberration. This lens features full-time manual focusing and a removable
tripod collar. The rear focus eliminates the need for the front of the lens to rotate, thus allowing the
use of circular polarizing filter. A zoom lock switch is built in to prevent the lens from extending due
to its own weight, and the lens is easier to use. Filter size is 77mm.

10-Megapixel Digital SLR Camera
The DSLR-A100 is a top-quality 10-megapixel DSLR camera that combines Minolta
Corp’s 20-year legacy of photographic leadership and expertise with Sony’s
advanced digital imaging technologies. It features anti-shake compatibility
with hundreds of Minolta A-mount lenses sold worldwide for the past quarter
century. It also features Sony Dynamic Range Optimizer to automatically
increase detail in bright and dark picture areas; high-sensitivity shooting
with Super SteadyShot in-camera image stabilization; Anti-Dust technology
to keep the CCD imager clean for better pictures, and Eye-Start Autofocus
system for faster camera response.
The high-speed Bionz image processing engine allows you to capture pictures
at lightning speed. It allows high-speed burst shooting at up to 3 fps continuously,
at 10.2-megapixels and the finest JPEG compression. For those action shots, you’re
limited only by the speed of your media card. For convenience, you can shoot 750 shots
on a single charge of it’s battery. In addition to being compatible with most of the former
Minolta Maxxum mount lenses, there are 19 high-quality Sony lenses available, including three
co-developed with Carl Zeiss, as well as a full range of accessories, including a line-up of flashes, cable releases, rechargeable
battery packs and several styles of carrying cases.
F EAT UR E S
10.2-megapixel CCD
◆ With an outstanding resolution of
10.2
million effective pixels, the large APS-C size
(23.6 x 15.8mm) CCD sensor with Sony’s
advanced design allows more light to pass to
each pixel, increasing sensitivity while
reducing noise — and providing greater
detail when you make big prints or crop in
close on your subject.
◆ More pixels mean more detail. 10.2-million
pixels means stunning prints… even when
they’re blown up to A3 size.
◆ The combination of
large (APS-C size) CCD
sensor, RGB primary color filter and BIONZ
image processor assures breathtakingly crisp,
high definition images with superlative
detailing, a wide tonal range and the subtlest
color gradations.
BIONZ Image Processing Engine
A digital camera must retain every nuance of detail entering the lens that’s captured by the
sensor... and translate it faithfully into stunning pictures. The DSLR-A100’s BIONZ image
processing engine ensures that what’s falling on the CCD sensor accurately represents the full
beauty of every moment without compromise. The ‘brain of the camera’ the BIONZ processor
uses a powerful image processing algorithm to reduce sensor noise without lowering resolution.
Tones are reproduced accurately with vivid coloration and excellent sharpness, creating images
with astonishing natural beauty and depth.
A major creative advantage offered by digital SLR photography is the ability to control the
blurring’ of out-of-focus areas in an image – such as the foreground or background. Blurring of
other parts of the image can make the subject stand out even more, providing a more threedimensional feel. The large image sensor inside the DSLR-A100 makes it possible to exercise
greater control over blurring using wide aperture settings for a wide range of creative effects.
Compact
Camera
◆ The APS-C size wide area CCD blurs
backgrounds to create a melting beauty that
brings out the character of the subject.
◆ Sharp eyes, soft skin texture, and resolution
down to a single hair are captured with the
realism that can only be achieved by a large
number of pixels and wide area CCD.

100
The blurring of out-of-focus areas is the greatest when aperture is open (small ‘f ’ value). These
photographs were taken using the 100 and a compact digital camera with an open aperture.
Because the background of the 100 image is blurred very gently, the in-focus section stands out
more effectively.

Anti-Dust Technology
Super SteadyShot Image Stabilization System
◆ A simple lens change can let dust particles
◆ Unlike most Digital SLRs, the A100 has image stabilization built into its body, so that any lens
collect on the image sensor surface, degrading picture quality - and once there, dust is
difficult to remove. To combat this constant
problem, the DSLR-A100 features an
advanced anti-dust system to minimize the
effects of dust particles entering the camera
body when lenses are exchanged.
◆ The CCD sensor’s Indium Tin Oxide anti-
static coating acts as a barrier to dust, while
a CCD vibration function briefly shakes the
sensor every time the camera is powered off
to dislodge what little dust particles settled.
There’s also a selectable menu function that
vibrates the sensor more strongly.
you use benefits from a stabilized image. The Super SteadyShot system empowers you to take
spectacular shots where un-stabilized lenses would give you blur. It's great anywhere a tripod
is unavailable, or in museums where flash is prohibited. It also makes the camera perfect for
indoor sports shooting, and candlelit subjects that would be ruined by flash.
— Instead of depending on an anti-shake mechanism within each lens, Super SteadyShot detects
camera shake and shifts the position of the CCD sensor to compensate for camera movement,
thus reducing image blur.This means that it works with all compatible Sony system lenses –
without the need for expensive specialist optics that include built-in image stabilization.
— As well as reducing the blur caused by camera shake, Super SteadyShot also permits handheld
shooting in situations that would normally require a tripod or flash. Enjoy sharp, blur-free
photos… even with a telephoto or zoom lens at high magnification, or handheld macro
shooting with a reduced risk of camera shake.
— The actual compensation effect depends on the lens and shooting conditions, but typically it’s
equivalent to between 2 and 3.5 steps in shutter speed. An indicator in the bottom right hand
corner of the viewfinder also provides real time indication of the amount of camera shake.
Eye-Start Autofocus System
◆ Some DSLRs don’t start focusing until the
shutter button is half-pressed, but that can
slow down camera response. The Sony
DSLR-A100 is equipped with a unique
Eye-Start system that ensures focusing is
complete by the time the shutter button has
been released.
◆ The camera begins its precision autofocus
adjustments the moment you bring your eye
to the viewfinder. The camera’s infra-red
sensor detects when you look through the
viewfinder, automatically activating
autofocus (and switching the LCD screen
off). Coupled with a super-fast response
time of 0.9 seconds from power-on, the
DSLR-A100 is always ready for action.
Four Focus Modes
Indicator and warning icon in the
viewfinder provides immediate
indication of camera shake status.
Amount of camera shake is
measured on a scale of 1 to 5
indicator bars. Warning icon also
illuminates whenever the danger
of camera shake is high.
High danger of
camera shake
Small camera shake
Dynamic Range Optimizer
The Dynamic Range Optimizer ensures evenly-balanced reproduction of the brightest highlights
and the deepest shadows... even when you’re shooting high-contrast scenes or against the sun.
While normal exposure compensation retrieves low-light detail at the expense of burnt out
highlights, Dynamic Range Optimizer assures perfectly exposed pictures by automatically
adjusting gamma curve and color balance settings. Two modes available:
• In Standard Mode brightness and
contrast levels for the whole image are
automatically corrected in real time.
◆ Fast, positive focusing is easy with four
modes to suit any scene and your creative
preferences.
– AF-S (Single AF) mode keeps focus fixed at
the point where it’s been brought into focus.
– AF-C (Continuous AF) mode is ideal for
keeping a moving subject in continuous
focus.
– AF-A mode selects automatically between
two modes by assessing the scene.
– A DMF (Direct Manual Focus) mode can
also be selected, allowing you to focus
manually after AF is complete for fine-tuning any scene to perfection.
• Advanced Mode offers a higher degree
of compensation by analyzing and
adjusting tone and color reproduction
for each area of the image separately
– a process that only takes around
0.5 seconds to achieve.
switched off
Standard Mode
Advanced Mode
When switched off, the subject’s face will appear dark in photographs taken directly against the
sun. Off is appropriate if the intention is to take a photograph with a silhouette.
In Standard mode, the contrast and exposure of the complete image are automatically adjusted
and the subject’s expression is easier to see compared to the OFF setting.
In Advance mode, a higher degree of compensation occurs. The photo balances with high
precision the strength of the color of the background sky, the brightness of the subject’s face and
the green of vegetation.

9-Point AF Selection
◆ The
DSLR-A100 gives you all the focusing
options you need for composing shots with
foreground, background or off-center subjects
– including manual focus point selection,
Spot AF, Continuous AF and AF Lock.
– In ‘Wide focus area’ mode, the DSRL-A100
automatically selects optimum sections from
the nine individual focus points displayed in
the viewfinder, making it easier to capture
moving subjects.
– Predictive focus control dynamically predicts precise focus for moving subjects at the
moment the shutter is released. This makes
the 100 the perfect choice for sports and
action photography. You can also focus on
the centre of the frame only or select
manually from one of nine focus points.
3 fps Continuous Burst
◆ To catch fast action, the camera offers
continuous JPEG image capture at up to
3 fps, up to the limit of your flash memory
card – plus RAW Burst Mode (up to 6 shots)
with intelligent buffer management to allow
more shots to be captured without waiting
for the buffer to clear. So you can keep on
shooting to your heart's content.
High Performance
◆ With high-sensitivity (ISO 1600) shooting,
the DSLR-A100 captures great photos
without flash even in low light — which
makes it an ideal system camera for shooting
without a tripod or in locations (like
museums and churches) where flash is
prohibited.
◆ At the heart of
the DSLR-A100 is the
advanced Bionz Image Processor, using
hardware-based Large Scale Integrated
(LSI) circuitry that responds ten times
faster than software image processors —
improving camera response time, handling
Dynamic Range Optimization processing
and extending Stamina battery life.
◆ Accurate framing and focusing depends
directly on the quality of the optical
viewfinder. The viewfinder of the DSRLA100 features Spherical Acute Matte screen
technology that enhances image brightness
for sure, accurate focusing. The viewfinder
provides a 95% field of view with 0.83x
magnification.

WB bracketing captures the scene with three different WB settings, so you can pick the best one.
◆ Fine tuning an image’s color balance can turn a great picture into something really special.
Manual color temperature adjustment features 19-step magenta/green compensation to emulate
the effect of professional color correction filters.
Four Image Quality Modes
Image Finishing Options
Has four image quality modes (RAW, RAW
+JPEG, Standard JPEG and Fine JPEG) and
three image sizes. Choosing the right mode
and image size is all about finding the right
balance between quality and capacity to suit
your needs. When you need to retain the
highest possible image quality however, the
RAW format records the image signal exactly
as it’s been captured by the CCD to create
‘digital negatives’. Since the RAW data is
uncompressed, there’s non of the compression
artifacts associated with JPEG images. RAW
files also provide the opportunity to process
the image further with minimum degradation.
Image finishing options allow image settings
to be adjusted according to your personal
preference. Fine-tune your image or create
powerful, dramatic effects with eight (Standard,
Vivid, Portrait, Landscape, Evening Scene,
Night Scene, Monochrome and Adobe RGB)
image finishing modes that select optimum
white balance, contrast, color saturation and
sharpness to suit any scene. Whether you’re
looking for an ultra-sharp look or highly
saturated colors, it’s easy to choose the right
image finishing mode to match the vision
inside your head. You can also adjust individual
parameters to suit your personal preference.

Specially designed for the CCD imager of the DSLR-A100 camera, this is the standard zoom lens that
brings you closer to your subject. With superior all-in-one lens performance for everyday shooting,
its 35mm-equivalent range of 27mm wide-angle to 300mm telephoto excels at capturing faraway
ubjects, sports events, dramatic landscapes and intimate close-up views.
Internal lens elements move, so the overall length does not change — creating a lens that focuses
more quickly and doesn’t change balance. Three aspherical elements correct visual aberrations more
effectively across the entire zoom range and help reduce weight. Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass
elements minimize flare and greatly reduce chromatic aberration, giving you sharp, clear shots even
at full telephoto extension. Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for
low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect ...................................459.95

24-105mm f/3.5-4.5
(SO2410535)
A high-performance standard 5x zoom for the DSLR-A100, this compact lens offers the 35mm equivalent of
a 35-157mm. Two glass-molded aspherical lens elements correct visual aberrations and improve picture
quality across the entire zoom range. Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for
low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect. Filter size is 62mm................419.95
70-200mm f/2.8 G-Series Telephoto Zoom Lens
(SO7020028)
A precision zoom lens with bright aperture and fast, quiet auto-focus response, this superb G-Series zoom
lens covers a broad range of telephoto applications with a 35mm equivalent range of 105-300mm. Fast
f/2.8 aperture and quiet, high-speed SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) makes it ideal for long-distance
photography. Four precision ED glass elements correct chromatic aberrations through the full zoom range.
Internal lens elements move, so the overall length doesn’t change — creating a zoom lens that focuses
much quicker and doesn’t affect the balance of your camera. Two DMF (Direct Manual Focus) modes let
you quickly revert to manual focus by just turning the manual focus ring of the lens. There are three focus
hold buttons, plus an electronic slider focus range selector switch. Filter size is 77mm ......................2299.95
75-300 - f/4.5-5.6 Telephoto Zoom Lens
(SO7530045)
A compact, lightweight 4x zoom lens that brings you closer to action, this lens is the ideal choice for
covering outdoor activities and sports action, even in large stadium locations. It’s wide zoom range of
112.5- to - 450mm (35mm equivalent) handles both middle-ground subjects and portraits shot from a
relaxing distance, so people won’t be nervous — even captures intimate details and natural wonders close
at hand. Circular aperture gives light sources a pleasing circular defocused effect in backgrounds. Designed
for both DSLR APS-size CCD sensors and 35mm format cameras. Filter size 55mm............................209.95
