FOCUS Enhancements DSC-T20 User's manual
Cyber-shot® digital still camera
The super-slim DSC-T20 combines superb performance, innovative features, and four fashion colors that make a brilliant
lifestyle statement. With new hi-tech features like Face Detection, in-camera retouching, D-Range Optimization and HD Output
1 , the DSC-T20 is an amazing Cyber-shot® camera value -- and high-resolution 8.1 MP imaging, the Sony Double Anti-Blur
Solution and Carl Zeiss® 3X Optical zoom lens design combine to deliver super-sharp color images in almost any light. And
shooting on the road is easier with 31 MB Internal Memory and up to 380-shot3 Stamina® battery power.
Four Stylish Colors in Ultra-Slim
With sleek metallic case in silver, black,
white or pink, the DSC-T20 makes a
dramatic fashion statement that fits any
lifestyle -- and also fits easily into your
pocket, briefcase, purse or handbag, so
you’ll always have a great little Sony CyberShot® camera on hand to save your
8.1 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.
Carl Zeiss®3X Optical Zoom Lens Design
An ingenious Carl Zeiss® lens design
provides 3X Optical zoom in amazingly
compact dimensions -- and even at full zoom
the lens doesn’t project beyond the camera
body, preserving its ultra-slim styling.
Face Detection
By automatically controlling focus,
exposure, color and flash, this new Sony
feature reveals faces in shadow, makes skin
tones look more natural and eliminates
harsh facial glare -- to help bring out every
expression on every face in every shot, so
you’ll capture the personalities and
emotions that make memories come alive.
The Sony Double Anti-Blur Solution
With Super SteadyShot® Image
Stabilization and high sensitivity (ISO
3200), the DSC-T20 compensates for shaky
hands, minimizes blur, brightens images
and allows flash-free shooting to preserve
the mood -- and Sony Clear RAW™ Noise
Reduction reduces the picture noise that
can ruin low-light shots.
HD Output1
Thanks to Sony, your photo album can go
high-def -- with direct HD output1 to your
HDTV screen, so you can view DSC-T20 still
photos in spectacular high definition clarity
and detail. Your life never looked so
HD Slide Show with Music
It’s the high-definition viewing experience
that makes photos come alive on HDTV
screens, accompanied by your choice of
visual effects and any of four preset musical
selections stored in memory or your
favorite MP3 tunes downloaded from PC to
your camera for use as background music.
9-Point Auto Focus
Because an off-center subject can make
your shot more interesting, the DSC-T20
can measure auto-focus precision at 9
points on your screen -- giving you greater
creative freedom to compose your image.
D-Range Optimization
The DSC-T20 lets you add creative effects to
photos after you shoot -- including soft edge
filter to soften backgrounds, cross filter to
place starry “ dazzles” at highlight points,
partial color filter to mute surrounding
colors, even fish-eye filter to create
interesting fish-eye lens effects.
In-Camera Red-Eye Reduction
Irritating “ glowing eyes” can ruin even the
most creative photos -- so the DSC-T20
provides in-camera correction at the touch
of a button to reduce lingering red-eye
effect that other systems might miss.
2.5” 2 Clear Photo LCD Plus™ Screen
With its Clear Photo LCD Plus™ design, the
big, bright 2.5” 1 screen of the DSC-T20
makes photos look more natural when
you’re sharing on location -- and gives you
adjustable brightness for viewing even in
bright sunlight.
Simple Setup Controls
A quick press of the Home button opens
your user-friendly GUI -- and you can select
functions by simply moving a cursor
vertically or horizontally to the
appropriate icon. Function names and the
on-screen Function Guide display make it
easier to learn camera setup operations.
31 MB Internal Memory
The DSC-T20 allows you to capture a large
number of images without a flash memory
card, so it’s great for traveling or for quick
candid snapshots.
Memory Stick Duo™ Media Convenience
A built-in slot accepts optional Memory
Stick Duo™ media or Memory Stick PRO
Duo™ media -- the compact, high-capacity
storage media that make it easily to
upload photos to your computer or make
lab-quality prints at home on your Sony
Picture Station™ digital printer (sold
