Features
High-Power Carl Zeiss® 15X Optical Zoom
A superb lens for bringing long-distance subjects up close, the pro-quality Carl Zeiss® VarioTessar® lens design of the DSC-H9 provides 15X Optical zoom design -- with 25X HD Digital zoom
to enlarge the center portion of the picture so you see even more detail.
8.1 MP Super HAD™ CCD
More megapixels give you more detail and definition for editing, cropping, and making large
digital prints. Sony’s advanced Super HAD™ (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more
light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.
3.0”1 Tilt-up Screen, Simple Controls
The DSC-H9 provides a huge, bright 3.0”1 Clear Photo LCD Plus™ screen that tilts up for
comfortable low-angle shooting -- plus simple camera menus, a new GUI Home button, and
Function Guide display that makes it easier to learn camera setup operations.
NightShot® Infrared System
Sony’s NightShot® system provides infrared illumination for shooting in near-dark or totally dark
conditions without using a flash -- so you can capture sleeping children, nocturnal animals and
creative night scenes that lie beyond the power of conventional cameras.
Advanced Sports Mode
To capture fast-moving subjects in split-second detail, this innovative DSC-H9 shooting mode
combines high shutter speed (1/4000 sec.) with Intelligent Continuous AF that responds more
quickly to rapid motion -- a great way to catch the perfect moment in sports, children’s games,
pet tricks and more.
Long-Distance Flash
A powerful flash provides extra illumination to light up subjects farther from your camera, with
precise light control and the ability to adjust flash for both front and rear sync when shooting at
low-speed sync setting.
Super SteadyShot® Optical Image Stabilization
Other image stabilization systems crop in to compensate for “camera shake” -- but with the
Super SteadyShot® system, optical sensors detect camera movement and send correcting
signals to a stabilization lens that allows even ultra-long-distance digital photos to capture more
detail with less camera shake distortion.
High Sensitivity Mode
With Super SteadyShot® image stabilization to minimize blur, High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 3200) lets
the DSC-H9 shoot effectively in low light without flash to preserve the mood -- and Sony’s original
Clear RAW™ NR (Noise Reduction) image processing technology helps suppress the color noise
that can accompany high-sensitivity shooting.
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.
HD Output2
Thanks to Sony, your photo album can go high-def -- with direct HD output2 to your compatible
HDTV screen, so you can view DSC-H9 still photos in spectacular high definition clarity and detail.
Your life never looked so exciting!
HD Slide Show with Music
It’s the high-definition viewing experience that makes photos come alive on compatible 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-H9 can measure
auto-focus precision at 9 points on your screen -- giving you greater creative freedom to
compose your image.
D-Range Optimization
Powered by the exclusive Sony Bionz™ high-speed processing engine, D-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.
In-Camera Retouching
The DSC-H9 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
In-Camera Red-Eye Reduction. Irritating “glowing eyes” can ruin even the most creative photos
-- so the DSC-H9 gives you in-camera correction at the touch of a button to reduce lingering redeye effect that other systems might miss.
Electronic Color Viewfinder
In addition to its bright 3.0”1 LCD screen, the DSC-H9 has a built-in electronic color viewfinder that
lets you shoot in traditional camera style and save battery power by turning your LCD screen off.
Remote Control Function
Remote Control Function. In both shooting and play mode, you can use a supplied remote
control unit to control basic camera functions -- including zoom, menu settings, etc. -- so you can
put yourself in the picture when shooting with a tripod or sit back and enjoy the show when you
share images on your home TV screen.
Wheel Dial for Manual Exposure Modes
For more creative freedom, a simple wheel-dial control lets you quickly change camera settings
in manual modes (shutter speed priority, aperture priority, manual exposure) and also control ISO
sensitivity, focus area, and exposure value. In play mode, the wheel dial provides a quick way to
view your next or previous shot.
31 MB Internal Memory
The DSC-H9 allows you to capture shots in-camera for later transfer to PC or Memory Stick Duo™
media -- so even if you forget your flash memory card, you can always get the shot.
Memory Stick Duo™ Media
The DSC-H9 has a built-in slot for optional Memory Stick Duo™ media or higher-capacity Memory
Stick PRO Duo™ media -- the ultra-compact media for shooting, storing and sharing your photo
images.
76X Smart Zoom® Feature4
Sony’s Smart Zoom® feature gives you an amazing ultra-close crop on the central portion of
interest in your photo while avoiding the image degradation of other digital zooms.
MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode
The DSC-H9 can capture VGA (640 x 480) audio/video clips at high frame rate (up to 30 frames
per second5) -- with Optical Zoom in movie mode to let you zoom in or pull back while taking
action shots.
Stamina® Battery Power
The DSC-H9 provides up to 250 shots3 with a fully charged NP-BG1 Lithium Ion battery -- enough
shooting capacity to cover a long weekend or a whole vacation.
