1/1.8" 5.1 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD

Super HAD (Hole Accumulation
Diode) CCDs provide excellent
image quality by allowing more

light to pass to each pixel, increasing
sensitivity and reducing noise.

3X Optical/2X Digital/6X Total Zoom

Optical zoom helps you fill the
frame with your subject for better
pictures. And Sony’s Precision

Digital Zoom helps bring your subject closer
with an extra 2X magnification.

0 – 12.0X Smart Zoom™ Feature 
(at VGA Resolution)

The Smart Zoom feature
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.

Carl Zeiss

® Vario-Tessar® Lens

The Vario-Tessar lens is specially
produced for very compact cameras.
This specialized design allows quick

auto-focus, appealing zoom range while still
maintaining a compact design.

Real Imaging Processor

The innovative Real Imaging Processor
in the DSC-W1 not only improves
picture quality and clarity but also

improves camera response time, decreases shutter
lag and improves battery stamina.

2.5" LCD Monitor

The extra-large high-resolution
123K LCD Monitor makes framing
shots and reviewing pictures easy.

Live Histogram Display

Available in capture and playback
the Live Histogram Displays the
concentration of pixels at each

luminosity value making it easy to evaluate
correct exposure.

14-Bit DXP A/D Conversion

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.

5 Area Multi-Point Auto Focus

By evaluating 5 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.

Manual Exposure Mode

Manual Exposure Mode provides
extended control with 46-step
adjustable Shutter speed

(30 – 1/1000 sec.), and 2-step Aperture control.

AF (Auto Focus) Illuminator

Briefly illuminating the subject, in
low–or no–light conditions, the
AF Illuminator helps establish a

positive focus lock.

Selectable Focus Mode
Monitoring AF (Auto Focus) helps you
anticipate the action by focusing even before
you press the shutter release.

Multi-Pattern Measuring

Independently light-metering 49
points of the frame, Multi-Pattern
Measuring establishes the

optimum exposure, even when highlight and
shadow isn’t centered in the frame.

Scene Selection Mode

With 6 Scene Modes, parameters
can be matched to the shooting
conditions. Choose from one of

the following: Twilight, Twilight Portrait,
Landscape, Soft Snap, Candle, or Beach.

Pre-Flash Metering
With a momentary pre-flash, the camera
illuminates the subject and sets exposure
through the lens for accurate flash metering.
Adjustable flash level and red-eye reduction
ensure great flash shots.

Slow Shutter Noise Reduction

During long 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.
