Cyber-shot® Digital Still Camera
The Sony DSC-W120 has Smile ShutterTM technology that captures smiles the moment they happen. The sleek and
enviable, compact body features 7.2 megapixel resolution, Carl Zeiss® 4x optical zoom lens, and Sony’s Double
Anti-Blur solution for crisp, clear images. In addition, it has Face Detection technology that detects up to eight
faces and optimizes flash and color for accurate, natural photos of family and friends.
7.2 MP Super HAD™ CCD
More megapixels give you more detail
and definition when you make big
prints or crop in tight on your subject.
The advanced Sony® Super HAD™
(Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD
design allows more light to pass to
each pixel, increasing sensitivity and
reducing noise.
Super SteadyShot® Optical Image
Compensates for shaky hands and
minimizes blur with a built-in gyro
sensor that detects camera movement
and sends correcting signals to a
stabilization lens -- so
there’s no need to crop in on your shot
to reduce blur.
Carl Zeiss® 4X Optical Zoom Lens
4X optical zoom brings distant subjects
closer to help you capture sharp,
detailed long shots and quickly frame
images for better composition -- great
for family sports, outdoor fun, and
travel photos.
High Sensitivity (ISO 3200) Mode
With high sensitivity of ISO 3200, you
can shoot effectively in low light
without flash to preserve the mood,
while the Sony Clear RAW™ Noise
Reduction system helps suppress the
color noise that can degrade low-light
2.5”1 TFT LCD Display
The large, bright 2.5”1 TFT LCD (115K)
display makes it easy to compose
shots, check results, and read menus in
sharp natural color, even in bright
Face Detection
Face Detection technology
automatically controls flash, focus,
exposure, and white balance to help
reveal faces in shadows, make skin
tones look more natural, reduce redeye, and eliminate harsh facial glare.
Now with adult or child priority so you
can determine who the focal point
should be.
Smile Shutter Mode
Smile Shutter (TM) technology captures
smiles the moment they happen without the need to press the shutter. The
mode can be set to capture when your
subject laughs, smiles or even grins,
and like Face Detection is able to
differentiate children and adults to set
Sony Double Anti-Blur Solution
The combination of Super SteadyShot®
optical image stabilization and high
ISO sensitivity helps compensate for
shaky hands, minimizes blur, and allow
flash-free shooting to preserve the
Dynamic Range Optimization
Powered by the exclusive Sony Bionz®
high-speed processing engine,
Dynamic Range Optimization preserves
image data in bright highlights and
reveals more detail in shadows or
backlit areas -- for great results even in
difficult lighting conditions.
Automatic Macro Shooting
Standard Auto Focus now covers the
macro focus range, eliminating the
need to manually change focus modes
for close-up photography. The Macro
mode has not been eliminated, and
enabling it accelerates Auto Focus
when shooting at point-blank range.
9-Point Auto Focus
Because an off-center subject can make
your shot more interesting, a 9-point
auto focus measures auto-focus at 9
precision points instead of 5 -- giving
you greater creative freedom to
compose your image.
Smart Zoom® Feature5
The Sony Smart Zoom® feature
5 intelligently “crops into” the central
portion of interest in your photo,
helping avoid the image degradation
of other digital zooms.
Burst Mode

situations, you can choose from several
