Super HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCDs provide excellent image quality by allowing more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.
Briefly illuminating the subject in low, or no-light conditions, AF Illuminator helps establish a positive focus lock.
CD Mavica cameras shoot directly to 156MB CD-R/RW discs, so there's room for hundreds of images and movie clips. The optical disc also provides "instant archiving" — there's no need to transfer to the PC as with flash media.
Sony's 12-bit Digital EXtended Processor captures the range between highlight and shadow with up to 4096 values, for extended dynamic contrast and detail.
Provides reliable, long-lasting power for continuous shooting, and avoids the "memory effect" common to other batteries. AC-L10 adapter/charger provides stable power for USB download.
Captures (16) 320x240 frames as part of a single 1280x960 image which plays back sequentially in the camera. Selectable 1/7.5 or 1/15 or 1/30 second frame intervals provide a choice of motion analysis.
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.
By evaluating 3 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.
With a momentary pre-flash, the camera illuminates the subject and calculates exposure through the lens directly from the CCD for accurate flash metering. Adjustable flash level and red-eye reduction insure great flash shots.
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 difference, even long exposures can be clear.
Extra-large LCD provides excellent viewing and playback clarity, even outdoors. For eye-level viewing, add the optional DSAC-MVC eye-level finder.
Thanks to a large buffer memory, the MVC-CD250 can capture three full resolution images in just 2 seconds!
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.
3X Optical zoom helps you frame your shots for better digital pictures. And Sony's Precision Digital zoom provides and additional 2X magnification without the jagged edges of other designs, for smoother images.
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.
With 3 Scene Modes, camera parameters can be matched to the shooting conditions. Twilight slows the shutter for as long as 2 seconds to expose for available light, Twilight Portrait adds flash to illuminate foreground subjects, and Landscape optimizes distant focus.
Allows you to check each image before writing to disc, to avoid wasting space with mistaken shots.
With its high resolution CCD, the MVC-CD250 captures images in 4 different sizes, with selectable Fine or Standard JPEG compression and TIF mode.
Captures full frame playback, high frame rate (16 frames per second) audio/video clips with length limited only by the capacity of the media. MPEG Movie Video Mail and Present- ation modes capture smaller sizes suitable for email.
