Panorama™ mode. Simply press the
shutter button and sweep the camera in
the desired direction and the camera
continuously shoots at a high speed,
then seamlessly stitches the images

degrees. Now capturing wide

720p MP4 HD Movie Mode

shoots 1280 x 720 high definition
movies at 30 fps, a standard format
when working with a PC.5 Users will
create high quality movies with full use
of optical zoom in files small enough
to transfer to compatible PC or Mac

Optical SteadyShot™ image
Optical SteadyShot™ image
stabilization uses a built-in gyro sensor
to detect camera shake and
automatically shifts the lens to help
prevent blur without sacrificing image
Active mode
Stabilize hand held HD movies with
active mode. For recording on the go
this feature was designed to minimize
motion capturing the video without all
of the movement.
Motion Detection
Motion Detection, along with Face
Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity
and increases the shutter speed when
movement is detected, reducing blur in
moving subjects and faces.
Intelligent Auto Mode
Unlike traditional auto mode, Intelligent
Auto (iAuto) mode does the thinking,
recognizing scenes, lighting conditions,
faces, and adjusts settings resulting in
clear images, faces with natural skin
tone and less blur. Take advantage of
all the technology without leaving Auto
mode. Kids on the playground,
landscape shots, a beautiful flower or
an indoor birthday party; all result in
clear images without leaving auto
Soft Skin mode
Portrait subjects will love the results. Soft
Skin mode recognizes skin tones and
reduces the appearance of blemishes
and wrinkles without affecting the rest of
the shot.
Natural Flash
Conventional point-and-shoot camera
flash shots just don't capture colors the
way the eye sees them. Natural Flash
mode takes a reference shot without
flash and then uses that reference to
correct the color, for far more lifelike
In camera guide
Take all the guesswork out of
photography with the in camera guide.
Its convenient step-by-step instructions
lead to a perfect shot.
Smile Shutter™ technology
Smile Shutter™ technology captures a
smile the moment it happens. Simply
press the Smile Shutter™ button and the
camera does the rest. Also select adult
and child priority and indicate the
degree of Smile Detection sensitivity.
Intelligent Scene Recognition can be
used together with Smile Shutter™
mode. This means that beautiful smiles
can be captured with settings
optimized for the particular scene, even
in difficult conditions such as twilight
and backlighting.
Face Detection technology
Sony’s Face Detection technology can
automatically distinguish between
children and adults. Face Detection
technology detects up to eight
individual faces and adjusts flash,
focus, exposure, and white balance to
help deliver crisp, properly lit images of
family and friends.
Anti-blink Function
It’s frustrating to capture the perfect shot,
only to review it later and discover
subjects blinked during the photo. When
the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Antiblink function captures two images,
recording only the photo with less
squinting or blinking. If a blink is
detected in other shooting modes, a
warning will be displayed after you
take the shot.
