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.
