DSC-V1
Cyber-shot®
Digital Still Camera
F E AT U R E S
1/1.8" 5.0 Megapixel Effective Super
HAD™ CCD
Super HAD (Hole Accumulation
Diode) CCDs provide excellent
image quality by allowing more
light to pass to each pixel, increasing
sensitivity and reducing noise.
Traditional, Yet Compact Design
A unique combination of performance and
compactness, the DSC-V1 puts high
performance imaging right in your hand!
➤Carl Zeiss
®
Vario-Sonnar® Lens
Famous for sharpness & color
accuracy, the Vario-Sonnar 4X
Optical zoom lens features 8
elements in 7 groups with aspheric elements.
0 - 4.0 Smart Zoom (at VGA size)
Smart Zoom intelligently uses
the full CCD to let you zoom
into the portion of interest by
cropping the image size—thus avoiding
the image degradation of Digital Zooms.
➤5 Area Multi-Point Auto Focus
Evaluating 5 separate areas
of the frame, Sony’s MultiPoint AF system intelligently
focuses on the subject, and displays the
selected focus point. Alternately, choose
any of the 5 points for manual control.
➤Hologram AF™ Illuminator
Projecting a Class 1 laser
pattern, Hologram AF reads
the contrast between the
pattern’s edge and the subject for
precise focus, even in low or no light.
Continuous Auto Focus
To maintain accurate focus
lock with fast moving subjects,
Continuous AF keeps focusing
until the moment of exposure.
Multi-Pattern Measuring
Independently light-metering
49 points of the frame, MultiPattern Measuring establishes
the optimum exposure, even when highlight
and shadow isn't centered in the frame.
➤ S T E P - U P F E AT U R E
Memory Stick® Media
Digital. Powerful. Transportable.™
Memory Stick media is compact,
portable and rugged—
connecting a variety of hardware and
software applications.
➤
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.
NightShot® Infrared System
Capture infrared digital
images in total darkness at
up 15 feet. By illuminating the subject
with infrared light and removing the
CCD's IR cut filter, the NightShot® system
makes infrared digital imaging a reality.
➤
NightFraming System
To capture beautiful color
images in low or no light,
NightFraming illuminates the subject
with the NightShot® system for proper
framing, focuses with Hologram AF and
lights the scene with flash.
14-Bit DXP A/D Conversion
Sony’s 14-bit Digital EXtended
Processor captures the range
between highlight and shadow
with up to 16,384 values, for extended
dynamic contrast and detail.
➤Manual Exposure Controls
Flexible Exposure control is
provided with Aperture
Priority, Shutter Priority and
Manual Exposure modes. Program Shift
lets you select aperture/shutter speed
combinations for direct control of motion
and depth of field, while still in Program
AE mode.
Pre-Flash Metering
With a momentary pre-flash, the camera
illuminates the subject and sets exposure
through the lens for accurate flash
metering. Adjustable flash level and redeye reduction insure great flash shots.
Auto Daylight Synchro Fill Flash
When the Multi-Pattern Measuring system
determines the subject is backlit or in
shadow, fill flash automatically fires to
provide optimum exposure.
Dynamic Flash White Balance
By evaluating the Pre-flash, white balance can be set to the color temperature
of the flash for greater color accuracy.
Live Histogram Display
The live histogram displays number of
pixels at each luminosity making it easy
to evaluate correct exposure.
5 Megapixel (2592 x 1944) Image Size
With its high resolution CCD, the DSC-V1
captures in 4 different image sizes, Fine or
Standard JPEG compression.
1.5" LCD Monitor
High resolution 123K pixel design and
anti-glare coating help provide excellent
viewing and image playback clarity.
Multi-Burst Mode
Captures 16 320x240 frames
as part of a single 1280x960
image which plays back
sequentially in the camera. Selectable
1/7.5, 1/15, 1/30 second frame intervals
provide convenient motion analysis.
MPEG Movie VX Mode
Captures VGA (640 x 480)
high frame rate (16 frames
per second) audio/video clips
with length limited only by the capacity
of the media. Video Mail mode captures
smaller file sizes suitable for email.
➤Hot Shoe and ACC Terminal
Connect Sony's HVL-F32X flash or
Remote Controls with ACC terminal, or
synchronize other flash units or studio
lighting with the Hot Shoe terminal.
Rechargeable Infolithium® Battery
Provides reliable, long-lasting power for
continuous shooting, without "memory
effect". AC-LS5 adapter/ charger provides
stable power for USB transfer.
