Step-up Feature
' New Feature
1/1.8" 5.1 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.
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.
0 -12.0X Smart Zoom™ Feature (at VGA
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-W5 not only improves picture quality and
clarity but also improves camera response time,
decreases shutter lag and improves battery
2.5" LCD Monitor
The extra-large high-resolution 115K LCD
Monitor makes framing shots and reviewing
pictures easy.
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.
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.
Manual Exposure Mode
Manual Exposure Mode provides extended
control with 46-step adjustable Shutter speed
(30-1/1000 sec.), and 2-step Aperture control.
AF (Auto Focus) Illuminator
Briefly illuminating the subject, in low-or
no-light conditions, the AF Illuminator helps
establish a positive focus lock.
Selectable Focus Mode
Monitoring AF (Auto Focus) helps you anticipate
the action by focusing even before you press
the shutter release.
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, Soft Snap, Landscape, Beach, Snow,
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.
