MVC-CD400 CD Mavica® Digital Still Camera F E AT U R E S ➤1/1.8" 4.0 MegaPixel Effective Super HAD™ CCD, 4.1 MP Gross Super HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCDs provide excellent image quality by allowing more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise. ➤Carl Zeiss ® Vario Sonnar Lens Famous for its superior sharpness and color accuracy, the Vario Sonnar 3X Optical zoom lens features a unique coating to resist chromatic aberration. Its fast f2.0 maximum aperture is great for available light shooting. ➤5 Area Multi-Point Auto Focus By evaluating separate focus areas of the frame, Sony’s Multi-point AF system intelligently focuses on the subject. Five manually selectable points allow creative control of the focusing system. ➤Hologram AF Projecting a Class 1 laser pattern, Hologram AF reads the contrast between the pattern’s edge and the subject for most accurate focus, even in low or no light. Multi-Pattern Measuring Independently light-metering 49 points of the frame, MultiPattern measuring establishes the optimum exposure value, even in scenes where pronounced highlight and shadow are not centered in the frame. Pre-Flash Metering With a momentary pre-flash, the camera illuminates the subject and calculates exposure through the lens directly from the CCD for accurate flash metering. Adjustable flash level and red-eye reduction insure great flash shots. ➤ S T E P - U P F E AT U R E CD-R/RW Media CD Mavica cameras shoot directly to 156MB CD-R/RW discs, so there's room for hundreds of images and movie clips. The optical disc also provides “instant archiving” — there’s no need to transfer to the PC as with flash media. ➤Manual Exposure Controls Flexible Exposure control is provided with Aperture Priority (f2.0-8.0), Shutter Priority (8 sec-1/1000 sec) and Manual Exposure modes. EV Compensation allows further fine tuning. ➤Scene Selection Mode With 4 Scene Modes, camera parameters can be matched to the shooting conditions. Twilight slows the shutter to as long as 2 seconds for available light, Twilight Portrait adds flash to illuminate foreground subjects, and Landscape and Portrait optimizes distant and near focus. Slow Shutter Noise Reduction During long Twilight mode exposures, Slow Shutter NR captures the scene, and then the CCD noise pattern with a dark frame exposure. By subtracting the two, even long exposures can be clear. ➤14-Bit DXP A/D Conversion 14-bit Digital EXtended Processor captures the range between highlight and shadow with up to 16,384 values, for extended dynamic contrast and detail. Confirm Before Write Mode Allows you to check each image before writing to disc, to avoid wasting space with mistaken shots. Rechargeable Infolithium® Battery Provides reliable, long-lasting power for continuous shooting, and avoids the “memory effect” common to other batteries. AC-L10 adapter/charger provides stable power for USB download. ➤4MP (2272 x 1704) Image Size With its high resolution CCD, the MVC-CD400 captures in 4 different image sizes, with selectable Fine or Standard JPEG compression and TIF mode. ➤3 Shot Burst /AE Bracket Mode The MVC-CD400 can capture three full resolution images in just 2 seconds, and Bracket Exposure in 1/3, 2/3, or 1 EV increments. Multi Burst Mode Captures 16 320 x 240 frames as part of a single 1280 x 960 image which plays back sequentially in the camera. Selectable 1/7.5 or 1/15 or 1/30 second frame intervals provide convenient motion analysis. MPEG Movie HQX Mode Captures full frame playback, high frame rate (16 frames per second) audio/video clips with length limited only by the capacity of the media. MPEG Movie Video Mail and Presentation modes capture smaller sizes suitable for email. 2.5" LCD Monitor Extra-large LCD provides excellent viewing and playback clarity, even outdoors. For eye-level viewing, add the optional DSAC-MVC eye-level finder. Playback Zoom, Trim and Resize During playback, magnify any portion of the image up to 5x and trim to the area of your interest. Then, save the new image as a new file in any of the image sizes available from the menu. ➤Hot Shoe and ACC Terminal Connect Sony’s HVL-F1000 flash or Remote Controls with ACC Terminal, or synchronize studio lighting with the Hot Shoe terminal.
