Sony DSC-W170/G Specification
Cyber-shot® Digital Still Camera
The Sony DSC-W170 features an enviable 10.1 megapixels, Carl Zeiss® 5x wide optical zoom lens, and
all of the advanced shooting functions you expect from Sony. Elicit stunning detail from special
moments with Face Detection technology, Smile Shutter, and Intelligent Scene Recognition.
10.1 MP Super HAD™ CCD
More megapixels give you more detail
and definition when you make big
prints or crop in tight on your subject.
The advanced Sony® Super HAD™
(Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD
design allows more light to pass to
each pixel, increasing sensitivity and
reducing noise.
Carl Zeiss® 5X Optical Zoom Lens
5X optical zoom gives you the power
to get even closer to the action -- a real
benefit for distant landscape views and
dramatic portraits.
Wide Angle Lens
Wide angle (28 mm-140mm4 ) lens
captures more of the scene
Clear Photo LCD Display
A large, bright 2.7”1 Clear Photo LCD
(230K) display includes an antireflective coating that provides for
excellent visibility to help you
compose, view, and share photos with
superb clarity and color reproduction,
even in bright sunlight.
Face Detection
Face Detection technology
automatically controls focus, exposure,
white balance, and flash to help reveal
faces in shadows, make skin tones look
more natural, reduce red-eye, and
eliminate harsh facial glare, so your
photos bring out every expression on
every face in every shot.
Smile Shutter Mode
Smile ShutterTM technology captures
smiles the moment they happen6 without the need to press the shutter. The
mode can be set to capture when your
subject laughs, smiles or even grins,
and like Face Detection is able to
differentiate children and adults to set
Sony Double Anti-Blur Solution
The combination of Super SteadyShot®
optical image stabilization and high
ISO sensitivity helps compensate for
shaky hands, minimizes blur, and allow
flash-free shooting to preserve the
Super SteadyShot® Optical Image
Super SteadyShot® Image Stabilization
compensates for shaky hands and
minimizes blur with a built-in gyro
sensor that detects movement and
sends correcting signals to a
stabilization lens -- so there’s no need to
crop in on your shot to reduce blur.
Convenient Photo Modes
To adjust quickly for specific shooting
situations, you can choose from several
convenient photo modes, including
Auto, Program Auto, and Scene
Selections such as Twilight, Twilight
Portrait, Fireworks, Smile Shutter,
Underwater, Landscape, Soft Snap,
Snow, High Sensitivity, and Beach
MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode
Capture VGA (640 x 480) audio/video
clips at a high frame rate (up to 30
frames per second7 ). The maximum
length of time you can shoot
continuously is about 10 minutes.
High Sensitivity (ISO 3200) Mode
With high sensitivity of ISO 3200, you
can shoot effectively in low light
without flash to preserve the mood,
while the Sony Clear RAW™ Noise
Reduction system helps suppress the
color noise that can degrade low-light
Automatic Macro Shooting
Standard Auto Focus now covers the
macro focus range, eliminating the
need to manually change focus modes
for close-up photography. The Macro
mode has not been eliminated, and
enabling it accelerates Auto Focus
when shooting at point-blank range.
Intelligent Scene Recognition Mode
Intelligent Scene Recognition mode
automatically detects 5 different types
of scenes and selects the appropriate
camera setting: Backlight, Backlight
Portrait, Twilight, Twilight Portrait,
Twilight using a Tripod. Intelligent Scene
Recognition has two different modes,
advanced and auto. In Advanced
mode, if the camera detects the
particular scene, it will take one more
picture. In Auto mode takes a single
shot, arbitrarily deciding on the proper
9-Point Auto Focus
Because an off-center subject can make
your shot more interesting, a 9-point
auto focus measures auto-focus at 9
precision points instead of 5 -- giving
you greater creative freedom to
compose your image.
Dynamic Range Optimization
Powered by the exclusive Sony BIONZ
TM high-speed processing engine,
Dynamic 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. New DRO
Plus mode enhances optimization,
analyzing each region of an image
and performing additional image
Smart Zoom® Feature5
The Sony Smart Zoom® feature
5 intelligently “crops into” the central
portion of interest in your photo,
helping avoid the image degradation
of other digital zooms.
