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.
Digital. Powerful. Transportable. Memory Stick media is compact, portable and rugged, connecting a variety of hardware and software applications.
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 accurate framing at eye level, great for added stability and following fast moving subjects.
Captures full frame playback, high frame rate (16 frames per second) video clips (w/o audio) with length limited only by the capacity of the media. MPEG Movie Video Mail and Presentation modes capture smaller size, lower frame rate files suitable for email.
Reliable power is provided by Sony's Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) Stamina® batteries with external charger. Or, choose AA Alkaline cells or optional AC-LS1 AC power adapter.
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.
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.
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 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.
2X Optical zoom helps you frame your shots for better digital pictures. And Sony's Precision Digital zoom provides an additional 3X 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.
Monitors the scene for accurate framing. 61K pixel and anti-glare coating help provide excellent viewing and image playback clarity, even outdoors.
With its high resolution CCD, the DSC-P51 captures images in 4 different sizes, with selectable Fine or Standard JPEG compression.
Capture up to 10 images and convert them to an animated GIF with 2 frames per second playback. By varying the interval between shots you can create animations not possible with other motion capture modes.
