Cyber-shot® digital still camera
With superb 6.0 megapixel performance and top-quality Carl Zeiss® 3X Optical zoom lens with wide-angle shooting,
the compact Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-S600 provides excellent value for both first-time and step-up digital
photographers. Both powerful and affordable, the DSC-S600 also has high sensitivity, strong flash, 2.0” 2 LCD screen
and 32 MB1 Internal Memory for in-camera shooting.
6.0 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD
More megapixels mean more detail and
definition in digital photos -- important when
you’ re making large prints or posting photos
on the Internet. Sony’ s advanced Super
HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD is
designed to allow more light to pass to each
pixel, to increase camera sensitivity and
reduce picture noise.
3X Optical/2X Digital Zoom
What’ s the difference between “ optical”
and “ digital” zoom? Optical zoom uses
moving lens elements; digital zoom relies on
digital enlargement. In the DSC-S600, 3X
Optical zoom helps you frame your shots for
better digital pictures; Sony’ s Precision
Digital zoom provides an additional 2X
Carl Zeiss® Lens Design
The Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-S600 uses a
precision Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar lens
design with excellent wide-angle shooting
capabilities, making it easier to take indoor
photos and capture group shots -- and its
sophisticated design enables quick autofocus and incorporates a wide optical zoom
range within compact dimensions.
Strong Flash
The DSC-S600 provides strong flash to
illuminate subjects more effectively -- up to
a range of 33 feet, significantly greater than
previous Sony models so you won’ t have to
stand so close to get great pictures indoors.
High Sensitivity
A first in an entry-level digital camera, the
high sensitivity (ISO 1000) shooting mode of
the DSC-S600 gets great shots even in lowlight conditions -- a plus when shooting to
capture the mood or in locations where
flash is not permitted.
13X Smart Zoom™ Feature
At VGA resolution4 , Sony’ s Smart Zoom
feature intelligently “ crops into” the central
portion of interest in your photo without
sacrificing the resolution of the full CCD -thus avoiding the image degradation of
other digital zooms.
Large 2.0” 2 LCD Screen
In addition to the optical viewfinder, the
DSC-S600 also has a built-in 2.0” LCD
screen that makes it easy to read menus,
frame shots and check results while you’ re
still on the scene.
Real Imaging Processor™ LSI
To capture the moment before it gets
away, Sony’ s DSC-S600 uses a Real
Imaging Processor™ LSI (Large Scale
Integrated Circuit) that not only improves
camera response time and decreases
shutter lag, but also improves picture quality
and clarity and increases battery stamina.
5 Area Multi-Point Auto Focus
By intelligently evaluating 5 separate focus
areas of the frame, Sony’ s Multi-Point AF
system can help you automatically maintain
focus on the subject -- not on distracting
elements in the background.
AF (Auto Focus) Illuminator
This simple feature briefly illuminates the
subject, to help establish a positive focus
lock in low -- or no -- light conditions.
32 MB1 Internal Memory
What if you forget your flash memory card?
No problem -- with the DSC-S600, you can
capture great memories in-camera with an
internal 32 MB1 memory -- then easily
transfer your shots to optional Memory Stick
Duo™ media.
Burst Mode
For capturing a child’ s first steps or a pet’ s
bests tricks, this Sony feature lets you
automatically record up to 7 shots at full 6.0
megapixel resolution or 100 shots at
standard VGA resolution.
Optional Memory Stick Duo™ Media
Sony’ s compact, high-capacity Memory
Stick Duo™ media options can hold all your
digital images and connect you to a wide
range of compatible hardware and software
MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode
In MPEG VX Fine Mode, the DSC-S600 can
capture VGA (640 x 480) audio/video clips
at high frame rate (up to 30 frames per
second) -- another rarity in entry-level
cameras, with length limited only by the
capacity of your media. Video mail mode
captures smaller files sizes suitable for email.
Stamina™ Battery Performance
With standard AA alkaline batteries, the
DSC-S600 can capture up to 160 shots3 -and when you use optional Sony NiMH
rechargeable batteries, you can capture up
to an amazing 460 shots3 . That’ s enough
shooting capacity for an entire vacation.
Cyber-shot Viewer Software
Sony’ s new software that makes it easy to
import images via camera or Memory
Stick® media -- then organize and browse
through photos on your PC with simple
scrolling through thumbnail images.
PictBridge™ Compatibility
The DSC-S600 connects easily to any
PictBridge™ compatible printer with the
supplied USB cable, so you can print
directly from your camera.6 You can view
images and make print selections right on
the camera’ s LCD screen -- with simple
menus for print quality, date and index print.
