Even though it is packed with features, the DSC-W1 was designed to be incredibly easy to use. The huge 2.5-inch LCD monitor, live histogram display, 6 scene modes, and PictBridge™ compatibility all combine to make taking a picture and making a print simpler than ever before.
-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.
-2.5" LCD Monitor
The extra-large high-resolution 123K 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.
-Manual Exposure Mode
Manual Exposure Mode provides extended control with 46-step adjustable Shutter speed (30 – 1/1000 sec.) and 2-step Aperture control.
-Selectable Focus Mode
Monitoring AF (Auto Focus) helps you anticipate the action by focusing even before you press the shutter release.
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.
-9 Shot Burst Mode
Capture up to 9 shots (fine) or 16 shots (standard) at 1.6 frame/sec. even at 5 MP resolution. Perfect for high speed subjects or fast moving action such as sports.
Captures 16 320 x 240 frames as part of a single 1280 x 960 image which plays back sequentially in the camera. Selectable 1/7.5, 1/15, 1/30 second.
-Conversion Lens Compatible
With the optional VAD-WA adaptor, you can add tele- or wide- conversion lenses for greater magnification or wider field of view, as well as protective and special effect filters.
-Rechargeable AA NiMH Batteries
The high capacity 2100 mAh AA NiMH batteries provide reliable, long-lasting power for continuous shooting. The supplied BC-CS2 charger provides a convenient way to charge the batteries.
