1/2.7" 4.1 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 –10X Smart Zoom
(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.
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-L1 not
only improves picture quality and
clarity but also improves camera response
time, decreases shutter lag and improves
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
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.
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.
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,
Landscape, Soft Snap, Candle, Snow, or Beach
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.
