MVC-CD500
CD Mavica®
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) CCD’s
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 sharpness & color
accuracy, the Vario-Sonnar 3X
Optical zoom lens features 7
elements in 8 groups with 2 aspheric
elements. Its fast f2.0 aperture is great for
low light shooting.
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 Multi-Point
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
Recordable CD 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.
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
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 great flash shots.
Auto Daylight Synchro Fill Flash
Because 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.
➤ 5 Megapixel (2592 x 1944) Image Size
With its high resolution CCD, the
MVC-CD500 captures in 4 image sizes,
TIFF and Fine or Standard JPEG.
Scene Selection Mode
With 6 Scene Modes, camera
parameters can be matched
to the shooting conditions.
Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Portrait,
Landscape, Snow and Beach presets
make great shots easy .
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, 1/15, 1/30 second
frame intervals provide convenient
motion analysis.
MPEG Movie VX Mode
Captures VGA (640x480) high
frame rate (16 fps) audio/
video clips with length limited
only by the capacity of the media.
MPEG Movie Video Mail mode captures
smaller files 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.
➤ Live Histogram Display
The live histogram displays number of
pixels at each luminosity making it easy
to evaluate correct exposure.
➤ 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-L15 adaptor/ charger provides
stable power for USB transfer.
