SONY Cybershot Digital Camera DSC H5 - 7.2 Mega Pixels

Sony Cybershot DSC H5 Digital CameraSavor every moment with true-to-life sharpness and detail. Sony?s powerful DSC-H5 is the choice for those who want professional-quality prints in almost any environment.

Get closer than ever with the Cyber-shot DSC-H5 digital camera from Sony. It offers a spectacular array of advantages for creative expression, including 7.2 megapixel performance for editing, cropping and making big prints, top-quality Carl Zeiss 12X Optical zoom lens and Super SteadyShot stabilization system for rock-steady long-distance photos.


7.2 Megapixel Super HAD? CCD:
Higher megapixels gives you more detail and definition for large prints and cropping in on your subject. Sony?s advanced Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.

Carl Zeiss 12X Optical/2X Digital Zoom/24X Total Zoom:
12X Optical Zoom helps the DSC-H5 bring distant subjects closer and lets you frame shots for better composition; Sony?s precision 2X Digital Zoom provides an additional 2X magnification to zoom in close without jagged edges.

57X Smart Zoom? Feature:
Sony’s Smart Zoom feature lets you magnify your subject beyond the 12x optical zoom - to 16x (5MP), 18x (3MP), even 57x (VGA). By intelligently cropping into the central portion of the scene, it avoids the image distortion of other digital zooms.

Super SteadyShot Optical Image Stabilization:
Super SteadyShot Optical Image Stabilization fights motion blur, even during longer exposures at full zoom.

Flexible Exposure Modes:
Choose Auto or Program Auto for convenience, or get creative with Aperture Priority or Shutter Priority modes. Manual Exposure Mode provides extended control with 46-step adjustable Shutter speed (30 - 1/1000 sec.), and Aperture control (F2.8 - F8.0).

Large 3.0" LCD Screen:
The DSC-H5 has a bright 3.0" LCD screen for setting up and viewing images - with a one touch ? Play" button that makes it quick and easy to view your photos.

Simple Controls, Function Guide:
User-friendly controls and simple on-screen Function Guide text/icon display help you set up camera functions - and you? ll have greater creative freedom to adjust color mode (including ?Natural" for subtle colors and ?Rich" for more intense colors), sensitivity, brightness and image size.

High Sensitivity Mode:
A new High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 1000) allows you to shoot with great results in low-light conditions -- and Sony?s original Clear RAW NR? (Noise Reduction) image processing technology helps suppress the color noise that can accompany high-sensitivity shooting.

Stamina Battery Power:
With its powerful Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) rechargeable batteries, the DSC-H5 can capture up to 340 images per charge -- enough for a week of shooting. The compact BC-CS2 Battery Charger is also supplied for battery recharging on the go.

Capture Images In-Camera:
With 32 MB Internal Memory, the DSC-H5 allows you to shoot without a flash memory card --then transfer your images to optional Memory Stick Duo? media, upload to your computer or make prints on your digital printer.

Memory Stick Duo? Media:
The DSC-H5 has a built-in slot for optional Memory Stick Duo? or higher-capacity Memory Stick PRO Duo? media -- the ultra compact media for shooting, storing and sharing your photo images.
