* 1/2.7' 3.2 Megapixel Effective Super HAD CCD
Super HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCD s provide excellent image quality by allowing more light to pass to each pixel, increasing
sensitivity and reducing noise.
* 0 - 3.2 Smart Zoom (at VGA Size)
Smart Zoom 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.
* 3 Area Multi-Point Auto Focus
Evaluating 3 separate focus areas of the frame, Multi-Point AF 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, AF Illuminator helps establish a positive focus lock.
* Multi-Pattern Measuring
Independently light-metering 49 points of the frame, Multi-Pattern Measuring establishes the optimum exposure value, even in scenes where pronounced highlight and shadow are not centered in the frame.
* Auto Daylight Synchro Fill Flash
If the Multi-Pattern Measuring system determines the subject is backlit or in shadow, fill flash automatically fires to provide optimum exposure.
* Pre-Flash Metering
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 insure great flash shots.
* Memory Stick Media
Digital. Powerful. Transportable. Memory Stick media is compact, portable and rugged- connecting a variety of hardware and software applications.
* Scene Selection Mode
With 5 Scene Modes, camera parameters can be matched to the shooting conditions. Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Landscape, Snow and Beach presets make it easy to optimize difficult shooting environments.
* Slow Shutter Noise Reduction
During long Twilight mode 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.
* 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.
* 1.6' LCD Monitor
Monitors the scene for accurate framing. 61K pixel and anti-glare coating help provide excellent viewing and image playback clarity, even outdoors.
* Auto Bright Monitoring
To help framing in low-or no-light situations, CCD gain is briefly increased to provide an extra bright display on the LCD viewfinder just before exposure.
* Optical Viewfinder
Provides accurate framing at eye level, great for added stability and following fast moving subjects.
* QXGA (2048 x 1536) Image Size
With its high resolution CCD, the DSC-P32 captures in 4 different image sizes, with selectable Fine or Standard JPEG compression.
* Multi-Burst Mode
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 frame intervals provide convenient motion analysis.
* MPEG Movie VX Mode
Captures VGA (640 x 480) high frame rate (16 frames per second) audio/video clips with length limited only by the capacity of the media. Video
Mail mode captures smaller file sizes suitable for email.
* Clip Motion Mode
Capture up to 10 images and convert them to an animated GIF with 2 fps playback. By varying the interval between shots you can create animations not possible with other motion capture modes.
* Playback Zoom, Trim and Resize
During playback, magnify any portion of the image up to 5X and trim to the area of your interest. Then, save the new image as a new file in any of the image sizes available from the menu.
* Rechargeable NiMH Batteries
Long-lasting power is provided by 2100 mAh rated Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) Stamina batteries with BC-CS2 external charger. Or, choose 'AA' Alkaline cells or optional AC adaptor.
* 2 Shot Burst Mode
* Clear Color/Clear Luminance NR
* MPEG1 Cue, Review and Divide
* 3:2 Aspect Ratio Mode
* Video Output (PAL/NTSC Selectable)
* 4 Mode In-Camera Picture Effects
* 5 Step Manual Preset Focus
