It all starts with the lens. Designed and manufactured to the highest standards of optical performance, the Sony G-Lens is optimized to
perfectly complement the advanced image sensors and image processing technology in Sony's cameras. G lenses are also used in high-end
digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras and advanced pro-sumer HD camcorders.
Panoramic Shots Made Easy
Sweep Panorama Mode goes far beyond traditional wide angle lenses to let you capture expansive, 260-degree shots of landscapes or skyscrapers.
Just press the shutter and shoot the scene with a sweeping motion and the camera does the rest. It even detects faces and moving subjects
to avoid distortion.
Goodbye Blurry Photos and Movies
Don't let a not-so-steady hand prevent you from capturing the perfect moment. Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization uses a built-in gyro sensor
to detect camera shake and automatically compensates to help prevent blur without sacrificing image quality. In addition, Active Mode compensates
for excessive camera shake in video by providing 10x compensation.
A Smarter Auto Mode
Unlike traditional auto mode, Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode thinks for you—recognizing scenes, lighting conditions and faces—then automatically adjusts the settings for the best-possible shot. The results? Clear images, less blur and faces with natural-looking skin tones.
Record and Upload HD Movies
Shoot and share HD movies with ease. In 720p MP4 movie mode, you can record 1280 x 720 HD movies at 30 fps for high-quality clips perfect for viewing and editing on your Mac?or PC, or uploading to sites like Facebook and YouTube (internet-connected computer required)
Put Yourself in the Picture
Self Portrait Timer helps take the guesswork out of self portraits by using Face Detection technology to recognize when your face enters the
frame. Once the camera detects your face, it triggers a 2-second timer, and then snaps a picture.
3.0?(230K dots) Clear Photo?LCD
3.0?(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.
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.4 Users will create high quality movies with full use of optical zoom in files small enough to transfer to compatible PC or Mac?when connected to the internet. Once transferred to a computer you can effortlessly upload your media to popular photo and video-sharing websites such as Photobucket?and YouTube?
Motion Detection, along with Face Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces.
Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them. Natural Flash mode takes a reference shot without flash and then uses that reference to correct the color, for far more lifelike images.
Face Detection technology
Sony’s Face Detection technology can automatically distinguish between children and adults. Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts flash, focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.
High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 3200)
High ISO allows for faster shutter speed, so you can take photos indoors or in low light without the need for a flash. In addition to High Sensitivity Mode (ISO), you can select up to seven ISO settings (Auto, 125, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200) when shooting in Program Auto Mode to adjust sensitivity to the shooting conditions.
Self-Portrait Timer helps take the guesswork out of self portraits by utilizing Face Detection technology to recognize when your face enters the frame. Once the camera detects your face, it triggers a 2-second timer, and then snaps a picture.
Includes Sony PMB (Picture Motion Browser) Software ver. 5.5

Optical SteadyShot?image stabilization
Optical SteadyShot?image stabilization uses a built-in gyro sensor to detect camera shake and automatically shifts the lens to help prevent blur without sacrificing image quality.
Intelligent Auto Mode
Unlike traditional auto mode, Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode does the thinking, 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.
In camera guide
Take all the guesswork out of photography with the in camera guide. Its convenient step-by-step instructions lead to a perfect shot.
It’s frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting or blinking. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot.
Easy Shooting Mode
With Easy Shooting Mode, even beginners can take great photos. In Easy Shooting Mode, easy-to-understand basic instructions are displayed on the LCD screen and the camera switches to all automatic settings, removing several function choices and allowing you to focus on just your subject. Since this mode works together with Intelligent Scene Recognition, the camera selects the optimum setting for each scene. In addition the easy mode simplifies preview mode.
PHOTOMUSIC combines images with music (4 tracks, 5 minutes per track) to produce fun and entertaining slide shows with standard visual effects (Simple, Nostalgic, Active, and Stylish). Select from pre-loaded tracks on the camera or transfer your own from your compatible computer (sold separately).
Sweep Panorama mode

Available in wide and ultra-wide options, the camera can take panoramic shots of up to 260 degrees. Now capturing wide landscapes is as easy as press and sweep.
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. Also select adult and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can be used together with Smile Shutter mode. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting.
