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.
