6.0 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD
Higher megapixels gives you more
detail and definition for making large
prints and cropping in on your subject.
Sony’s advanced Super HAD (Hole

allows more light to pass to each
pixel, increasing sensitivity and
reducing noise.

rechargeable battery, the DSC-W50

compact BC-CSG Battery Charger is
also supplied for battery recharging
on the go.
Extra-Large 2.5”1 LCD Screen
The DSC-W50 has a bigger, brighter
2.5”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.
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.
Simple Controls, Function Guide
User-friendly controls and simple onscreen Function Guide text/icon
display help you set up camera
functions for terrific shots -- 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™ NR (Noise
Reduction) image processing
technology helps suppress the color
noise that can accompany highsenstivity shooting.
Carl Zeiss® 3X Optical/2X Digital
3X Optical Zoom helps the DSC-W50
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.
Capture Images In-Camera
With 32 MB2 Internal Memory, the DSCW50 allows you to shoot without a
flash memory card -- then transfer your
images to optional Memory
StickDuo™ media, upload to your
computer or make prints on your

480) audio/video clips at high frame
rate (up to 30 frames per second), with
length limited only by the capacity of
your media.
