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 Digital Zoom
Sony's Precision Digital Zoom
provides an additional 3X
magnification without the
jagged edges of other designs, resulting in

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
An amber light briefly illuminates
the subject, in low – or no – light
conditions, helping to establish a
positive focus lock.
Selectable Focus Mode
Monitoring AF (Auto Focus) helps you
anticipate the action by focusing even

If the Multi-Pattern Measuring system
determines the subject is backlit or in shadow,
fill flash automatically fires to provide optimum
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.
