Sony DSC-W30 Specification
Cyber-shot® Digital Still Camera
The Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-W30 is an ideal camera for starting out right in digital photography, combining the quality of 6.0
megapixels and Carl Zeiss® 3X Optical zoom, the performance of High Sensitivity mode for great low-light shots, the simplicity
of on-screen Function Guide for easy setup and the convenience of 32 MB2 Internal Memory for shooting images in-camera.
6.0 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD
Higher megapixels gives you more
detail and definition for large prints
and cropping in on your subject.
Sony’s advanced Super HADTM (Hole
Accumulated Diode) CCD design
allows more light to pass to each
pixel, increasing sensitivity and
reducing noise.
Carl Zeiss® 3X Optical/2X Digital
3X Optical Zoom helps the DSC-W30
bring distant subjects closer and lets
you frame shots for better
composition; Sony’s precision 2X
Digital Zoom provides an additional
2X magnification to enlarge details
without jagged edges.
Large 2.0"1 LCD Screen
The DSC-W30 has a bright 2.0” 1 LCD
screen for setting up and viewing
images -- with a one-touch “ Play”
button that makes it quick and easy
to view your photos.
Stamina® Battery Power
With its powerful Lithium Ion
rechargeable battery, the DSC-W30
can capture up to 4003 images -enough for a week of shooting. The
compact BC-CSG Battery Charger is
also supplied for battery recharging
on the go.
Simple Controls, Function Guide
User-friendly controls and simple onscreen Function Guide text/icon
display help you set up camera
functions -- and you’ll have greater
creative freedom to adjust color
mode (including “ Natural” for subtle
colors and “ Rich” for more intense
colors), sensitivity, brightness and
image size.
High Sensitivity Mode
A new High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 1000)
allows you to shoot with great
results in low-light conditions -- and
Sony’s original Clear RAW NRTM (Noise
Reduction) image processing
technology helps suppress the color
noise that can accompany highsenstivity shooting.
13X Smart Zoom® Feature
At VGA resolution4 , Sony’s Smart
Zoom® feature intelligently “ crops
into” the central portion of interest
in your photo without sacrificing full
CCD resolution -- avoiding the image
degradation of other digital zooms.
Capture Images In-Camera
With 32 MB2 Internal Memory, the
DSC-W30 allows you to shoot
without a flash memory card -- then
transfer your images to optional
Memory Stick™ Duo media, upload
to your computer or make prints on
your digital printer.
Memory Stick Duo™ Media
The DSC-W30 has a built-in slot for
optional Memory Stick Duo™ or
higher-capacity Memory Stick PRO
Duo™ media -- the ultra-compact
media for shooting, storing and
sharing your photo images.
MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode
The DSC-W30 can capture VGA (640 x
480) audio/video clips at high frame
rate (up to 30 frames per second),
with length limited only by the
capacity of your media.
Cyber-shot Viewer Software
Sony’s new software that makes it
easy to import images via camera or
Memory Stick® media -- then
organize and browse through
photos on your PC with simple
scrolling through thumbnail images.
PictBridge™ Compatibility
The DSC-W30 connects easily to any
PictBridge™ compatible printer with
the supplied USB cable, so you can
print directly from your camera. You
can view images and make print
selections right on the camera’s LCD
screen -- with simple menus for print
quality, date and index print.
