image quality by allowing more
light to pass to each pixel, increasing
sensitivity and reducing noise.
Rotating Lens Design
Rotating through a 300 degree
travel DSC-F88's lens lets you
shoot from waist level, overhead
or even fully reversed to let you get in the
picture with full view of the LCD.

0 – 12.0X Smart Zoom™ Feature
(at VGA Resolution)
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.

in the DSC-F88 not only improves
picture quality and clarity but also
improves camera response time, decreases shutter
lag and improves battery stamina.
