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.
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.
To maintain accurate focus lock with fast moving subjects, Continuous AF keeps focusing until the moment of exposure.
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.
Provides accurate framing at eye level, great for added stability and following fast moving subjects.
Available for capture and playback, the live histogram displays number of pixels at each luminosity making it easy to evaluate correct exposure.
Captures 16 320x240 frames, as part of a single 1280x960 image which plays back sequentially in the camera. Selectable 1/7.5, 1/15, 1/30 second frame intervals provide convenient 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.
To help frame your shots for better digital pictures. Optical Zoom helps you bring distant subjects closer or pull back for wide shots.
Briefly illuminating the subject in low or no-light conditions, AF Illuminator helps establish a positive focus lock.
Digital. Powerful. Transportable™.Memory Stick® media is compact, portable and rugged — connecting a variety of hardware and software applications.
Monitors the scene for accurate framing. 123K pixel and anti-glare coating help provide excellent viewing and image playback clarity, even outdoors.
If the Multi-Pattern Measuring system determines the subject is backlit or in shadow, fill flash automatically engages to provide optimum exposure.
With 5 Scene Modes, camera parameters can be matched to the shooting conditions. Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Landscape, Snow, Beach, Fast Shutter and Fireworks presets make taking great shots easy!
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.
The DSC-P8's sleek metal body is small enough for most any pocket or purse, and easy to use with well placed controls.
Evaluating 3 separate focus areas of the frame, Multi-Point AF can intelligently focus on the subject and avoid undesired focus on the background.
Independently light-metering 49 points of the frame, Multi- Pattern Measuring establishes the optimum exposure, even in scenes where pronounced highlight and shadow areas exist in various portions of the frame.
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.
With a momentary pre-flash, the camera illuminates the subject and sets exposure through-the-lens for accurate flash metering. Adjustable flash level and redeye reduction ensure great flash shots.
With its high resolution CCD, the DSC-P8 records in 4 different image sizes, with selectable Fine or Standard JPEG compression.
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.
Provides reliable, long-lasting power for continuous shooting, without "memory effect". AC-LS5 adaptor/charger provides stable power for USB transfer.
