DSC-P8
Cyber-shot®
Digital Still Camera
F E AT U R E S
1/2.7" 3.2 Megapixel Effective Super
HAD™ CCD
Super HAD (Hole
Accumulation Diode) CCD’s
provide excellent image quality
by allowing more light to pass to each pixel,
increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.
➤Ultra Compact Design
The DSC-P8's sleek metal body is small
enough for most any pocket or purse,
and easy to use with well placed controls.
3X Optical Zoom Lens
To help frame your shots for
better digital pictures. Optical
Zoom helps you bring distant
subjects closer & pull back for wide shots
0 - 3.2 Smart Zoom (at VGA size)
Smart Zoom 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.
3 Area Multi-Point Auto Focus
Evaluating 3 separate focus
areas of the frame, Multi-Point
AF can intelligently focus on
the subject and avoid mistakenly focusing
on the background.
AF (Auto Focus) Illuminator
Briefly illuminating the
subject in low–or no–light
conditions, AF Illuminator
helps establish a positive focus lock.
➤Continuous Auto Focus
To maintain accurate focus
lock with fast moving subjects,
Continuous AF keeps focusing
until the moment of exposure.
Multi-Pattern Measuring
Independently light-metering 49
points of the frame, Multi-Pattern
Measuring establishes the
optimum exposure value, even when highlight
or shadow isn't centered in the frame.
➤ S T E P - U P F E AT U R E
Memory Stick® Media
Digital. Powerful. Transportable.™
Memory Stick media is compact,
portable and rugged—
connecting a variety of hardware and
software applications.
Slow Shutter Noise Reduction
During long exposures, Slow
Shutter NR captures the
scene, and then a separate
exposure of just the CCD noise pattern.
By subtracting the two, the noise which
often distorts long exposures is reduced.
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.
1.5" LCD Monitor
Monitors the scene for accurate framing.
123K pixel and anti-glare coating help
provide excellent viewing and image
playback clarity, even outdoors.
True Zoom Optical Viewfinder
Provides accurate framing at eye level,
great for added stability and following
fast moving subjects.
Pre-Flash Metering
With a momentary pre-flash, the camera
illuminates the subject and sets exposure
through the lens for great flash shots.
Auto Daylight Synchro Fill Flash
When the Multi-Pattern Measuring system
determines the subject is backlit or in
shadow, fill flash automatically fires to
provide optimum exposure.
➤Live Histogram Display
Available for capture and playback, the
live histogram displays number of pixels
at each luminosity making it easy to
evaluate correct exposure.
QXGA (2048 x 1536) Image Size
With its high resolution CCD, the DSC-P8
captures in 4 different image sizes, with
Fine or Standard JPEG compression.
Scene Selection Mode
With 7 Scene Modes, camera
parameters can be matched
to the shooting conditions.
Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Landscape,
Snow, Beach, Fast Shutter and Fireworks
presets make great shots easy!
Multi-Burst Mode
Captures 16 320x240 frames
as part of a single 1280x960
image which plays back
sequentially in the camera. Selectable
1/7.5, 1/15, 1/30 second frame intervals
provide convenient motion analysis.
MPEG Movie VX Mode
Captures VGA (640 x 480)
high frame rate (16 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.
Clip Motion Mode
Capture up to 10 images and
convert them to an animated
GIF with 2 fps playback. By
varying the interval between shots you
can create animations not possible with
other motion capture modes.
Playback Zoom, Trim and Resize
During playback, magnify
any portion of the image up
to 5X and trim to the area of
your interest. Then, save the
new image as a new file in
any of the image sizes
available from the menu.
➤Rechargeable InfoLithium
®
Battery
Provides reliable, long-lasting power for
continuous shooting, without "memory
effect". AC-LS5 adaptor/charger provides
stable power for USB transfer.
