Product Details

Sony Cyber-Shot 20.1 Megapixel Black Digital Camera - DSCW830B

It’s the amazingly easy-to-use camera that slips right in your pocket—with an 8x optical zoom, 20.1MP photos and beautifully-detailed HD videos. And pics stay clearer, even with shaky hands thanks to Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization. You can also enhance your images with built-in effects that adjust skin tone and texture or even whiten teeth.

Features:

  • 20.1 Megapixel Plus 8x Zoom
    A powerful 20.1 megapixel CCD image sensor helps you capture gorgeous images with superb contrast and clarity down to the finest detail. With 20.1 megapixels, you can create stunning, photo-quality prints up to A3+ (13x19”) size, or crop your images and still come away with high resolution shots. The 8x zoom Carl Zeiss® Vario Tessar lens helps you get much closer to your subjects
  • Optical SteadyShot™ image Stabilization with 2-way Active Mode
    Sony's Active Mode image stabilization gives you the freedom to shoot movies even while walking or running. 2-way Active Mode corrects for both vertical and horizontal motion
  • 720p MP4 HD Movie Mode
    In 720p MP4 movie mode the camera shoots 1280 x 720 high definition movies at 30 fps, a standard format when working with a PC.¹ Create high quality movies with full use of optical zoom in files small enough to transfer to compatible PC or Mac® computer. Once transferred to your computer and connected to the internet, you can effortlessly upload your media to popular photo and video-sharing websites such as Photobucket® and YouTubeTM
  • Creative shooting with Picture and Beauty effects
    Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Beauty Effects allows edits to skin tones, skin smoothing, shine removal, eye widening, and teeth whitening. Beauty Effects can be combined to further enhance the image
  • Advanced Flash illuminates distant subjects
    Advanced Flash allows you to shoot bright, beautifully lit photos. The built in flash reaches farther resulting in brighter subjects in dimly lit rooms or outdoors in the evening
  • Intelligent Auto Mode
    Unlike traditional auto mode, Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode thinks for you, recognizing scenes, lighting conditions, faces, and adjusts settings resulting in clear images, faces with natural skin tone and less blur. Take advantage of all the technology without leaving Auto mode. Kids on the playground, landscape shots, a beautiful flower or an indoor birthday party; all result in clear images without leaving auto mode
  • Sweep Panorama™ mode (up to 360°)
    Reach beyond the traditional wide angle lens, and capture more breathtaking shots with Sweep Panorama™ mode. Simply press the shutter button and sweep the camera in the desired direction and the camera continuously shoots at a high speed, then seamlessly stitches the images together with automatic position adjustment to create one stunning panoramic image. Available in wide and up to 360° full circle, the camera can take a variety of panoramic shots. Now capturing wide landscapes is as easy as press and sweep
  • Face Detection technology
    Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends
  • Smile Shutter™ technology
    Smile Shutter™ technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter™ button and the camera does the rest. You can also select adult and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can now be used together with Smile Shutter™ mode when the Intelligent Auto mode is on. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting
  • 2.7” (230K dots) Clear Photo™ LCD display
    Generous 2.7” (230K dots) Clear Photo™ LCD display features sharp, natural color that makes it easy to compose shots, read menus, and view photos, even in bright sunlight

        Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot 20.1MP Silver Digital Camera:

        Great little camera. Fits in wifes (small) purse, which is what it was bought to do. Has loads of features and capibilities, wayyy more than expected for such a small product.
        Only down-side is it's major feature, it's small size. Makes holding firmly diffacult, but like I said, that's it's major up-side, being easy to carry everywhere.
