® DSC-L1 Cyber-shot Digital Still Camera ® COLOR OPTIONS F E AT U R E S 1/2.7" 4.1 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD Super HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCDs provide excellent image quality by allowing more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise. 5 Area Multi-Point Auto Focus By evaluating 5 separate focus areas of the frame, Sony’s Multi-Point AF system can intelligently focus on the subject and avoid mistakenly focusing on the background. Memory Stick Duo™ Media Digital. Powerful. Transportable.™ Memory Stick Duo media is compact, portable and rugged— connecting a variety of hardware and software applications. 3X Optical/2X Digital/6X Total Zoom Optical zoom helps you fill the frame with your subject for better pictures. And Sony’s Precision Digital Zoom helps bring your subject closer with an extra 2X magnification AF (Auto Focus) Illuminator Briefly illuminating the subject, in low – or no – light conditions, the AF Illuminator helps establish a positive focus lock. 4 Shot Burst Mode Capture up to 4 shots at full resolution at 1.1 frames/sec. Perfect for high speed subjects or fast moving action such as sports Selectable Focus Mode Monitoring AF (Auto Focus) helps you anticipate the action by focusing even before you press the shutter release. Multi-Burst Mode Captures 16 320 x 240 frames as part of a single 1280 x 960 image which plays back sequentially in the camera. Selectable 1/7.5, 1/15, 1/30 second. 0 –10X Smart Zoom® Feature (at VGA Resolution) The Smart Zoom feature intelligently uses the full CCD to let you zoom into the portion of interest by cropping the image size – thus avoiding the image degradation of Digital Zooms. Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® Lens The Vario-Tessar lens is specially produced for very compact cameras. This specialized design allows quick auto-focus, appealing zoom range while still maintaining a compact design. Real Imaging Processor™ Technology The innovative Real Imaging Processor in the DSC-L1 not only improves picture quality and clarity but also improves camera response time, decreases shutter lag and improves battery stamina. Live Histogram Display Available in capture and playback the Live Histogram displays the concentration of pixels at each luminosity value making it easy to evaluate correct exposure. 14-Bit DXP A/D Conversion Sony’s 14-bit Digital EXtended Processor captures the range between highlight and shadow with up to 16,384 values, for extended dynamic contrast and detail. ➤ STEP-UP F E AT U R E Multi-Pattern Measuring Independently light-metering 49 points of the frame, Multi-Pattern Measuring establishes the optimum exposure, even when highlight and shadow isn’t centered in the frame. Scene Selection Mode With 7 Scene Modes, parameters can be matched to the shooting conditions. Choose from one of the following: Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Landscape, Soft Snap, Candle, Snow, or Beach Pre-Flash Metering With a momentary pre-flash, the camera illuminates the subject and sets exposure through the lens for accurate flash metering. Adjustable flash level and red-eye reduction ensure great flash shots. Slow Shutter Noise Reduction During long exposures, Slow Shutter NR captures the scene, and then the CCD noise pattern with a dark frame exposure. By subtracting the two, even long exposures can be clear. MPEG Movie VX Standard/Fine Mode with Audio Captures VGA (640 x 480) high frame rate (up to 30 frames per second) audio/video clips with length limited only by the capacity of the media. Video mail mode captures smaller file sizes suitable for email. Super Compact Design The DSC-L1 is super compact (less than 100 cc's) and easy to use, helping you capture life as it happens. Small enough to wear, with colors to complement any fashion. PictBridge™ Compatibility Connect to any PictBridge™ compatible printer with the supplied USB cable and print directly from the camera. Images can be viewed and selected for printing right on the camera’s LCD, with menus for print quantity, date and index print. Rechargeable InfoLithium® Battery Provides reliable, long-lasting power for continuous shooting, without “Memory Effect”. The supplied AC-LS5 adapter/charger provides stable power for USB Transfer.
