Cyber-shot® Digital Still Camera
The DSC-T30 is the cool, sharp ultra-slim Cyber-shot® camera that turns on inspiration, turns off blur -- with high-tech creative features
for shooting and sharing, including 7.2 megapixel resolution, High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 1000) for superb results without flash to preserve
the mood or shoot in areas where flash isn’t permitted, and the Super SteadyShot® system to reduce blur from shaky hands. You can also
create Slide Shows with select music playback2 for viewing on an extra-large 3.0” 1 Clear Photo LCD Plus™ screen.
Sleek Styling, Ultra-Slim
The DSC-T30 is Sony’s sleekest ultraslim design -- an amazing demonstration
of how much image resolution and hightech performance can be incorporated
in a camera that’s only about the size of a
credit card.
7.2 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD
It’s another step up in megapixel
performance, giving each photo greater
detail when you make large prints and
view pictures on big-screen TVs -- with
Sony’s advanced Super HAD (Hole
Accumulated Diode) CCD design that
allows more light to pass to each pixel,
increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.
Super SteadyShot® Optical Image
To compensate for shaky hands, Sony’s
Super SteadyShot® system detects
camera movement and sends
correcting signals to a stabilization lens to
reduce image blur -- a real advantage
when shooting in low light with such a
small camera.
Sharp, Clear Photos Without Flash
The DSC-T30 provides High Sensitivity
Mode (ISO 1000) to let you shoot in low
light without flash to preserve the mood
or capture great shots in locations where
flash is not permitted. Sony’s Clear
RAW™ Noise Reduction system also
counters the picture noise traditionally
associated with high ISO imaging -- and
with Sony’s Super SteadyShot® system
to compensate for camera shake, you’ll
be able to get great results with a wide
range of subjects and lighting conditions.
Carl Zeiss® 3X Optical/2X Precision
Digital Zoom
An ingenious lens design provides 3X
Optical Zoom capability in amazingly
compact camera dimensions -- and
even at full zoom the lens doesn’t project
beyond the camera body, preserving
the ultra-slim styling of the DSC-T30.
Capture Images In-Camera
With 58 MB Internal Memory, the DSCT30 allows you to shoot photos without a
flash memory card -- so you can always
get your shot even if you forgot your
card. From internal memory, you can
easily transfer your images to Memory
Stick Duo™ or Memory Stick PRO
Duo™ media, upload to your computer
or make prints on your digital printer.
14X Smart Zoom™ Feature 4
Sony's Smart Zoom feature lets you
magnify your subject beyond the 3x
optical zoom - to 3.6x (5MP), 4.5x (3MP),
even 14x (VGA). By intelligently cropping
into the central portion of the scene, it
avoids the image distortion of other digital
Real Imaging Processor™ LSI
To improve camera response and
extend battery life, Sony’s Real Imaging
Processor™ LSI (Large Scale
Integrated) circuit decreases shutter lag,
improves picture quality and clarity, and
increases battery stamina.
Memory Stick Duo™ Media
The DSC-T30 has a built-in slot for
optional Memory Stick Duo™ or
Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media that
provides ultra-compact, high-capacity
shooting and recording.
MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode
The DSC-T30 can capture VGA (640 x
480) audio/video clips at high frame rate
(up to 30 frames per second6 ), with
length limited only by the capacity of your
3:2 Aspect Ratio Mode Adjustable
3.0” 1 Clear Photo™ LCD Plus
With its Clear Photo™ LCD Plus design,
the large 3.0” 1 screen of DSC-T30 gives
you a big, bright image that makes it
easy to set up shots, share results and
read menus even in bright sunlight.
Slide Show with Select Music
The DSC-T30 lets you view in-camera
images in Slide Show sequence, with
one-button operation, selectable
transition effects and up to four music
background tracks that make it more
entertaining to share your memories with
family and friends. You can even use
supplied Picture Package Music
Transfer software to add your own
favorite music.
Versatile Color Modes
The DSC-T30 gives you greater creative
Slow Shutter Noise Reduction
freedom to adjust color mode for the
