The DSC-W200 combines the amazing detail of 12.1 MP Resolution with the ultra-high-Sensitivity (ISO 3200) mode that allows shooting without flash even in very low light. Super SteadyShot; image stabilization keeps blur to a minimum - and new hi-tech features like Face Detection, D-Range Optimization, and in-camera retouching and red-eye reduction help bring out the best in every shot you take. For shooting and sharing on location, there's a large 2.5-inch TFT LCD Screen - and HD Output1 lets you share memories in spectacular High Definition clarity and detail on your home HDTV set.

12.1 MP Super HAD CCD - With more megapixels than most Digital cameras, the DSC-W200 captures greater image definition so you can make big prints and tight crops without losing detail. The advanced Sony Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each Pixel, increasing Sensitivity and reducing noise.

Carl Zeiss 3X Optical Zoom Lens Design - A top-quality Carl Zeiss 3X Optical Zoom Lens design helps the DSC-W200 bring distant subjects closer and lets you frame shots quickly for better composition - a real advantage for family sports, outdoor fun and travel photos.

Face Detection - By automatically controlling focus, exposure, color and flash, this new Sony feature reveals faces in shadow, makes skin tones look more natural and eliminates harsh facial glare - to help bring out every expression on every face in every shot, so you'll capture the personalities and emotions that make memories come alive.

Ultra-High-Sensitivity (ISO 6400) Mode - At 3 MP Resolution, you can shoot effectively without flash even in very low light to preserve the mood and capture fast action at high shutter speeds - with the Sony Clear RAW Noise Reduction system to take care of the picture noise that can ruin low-light shots.

Super SteadyShot Image Stabilization - With Super SteadyShot Image Stabilization, the DSC-W200 compensates for shaky hands and minimizes blur with optical sensors that detect camera movement and send correcting signals to a stabilization lens - so there's no need to crop in on your shot to reduce blur.

HD Output - Thanks to Sony, your photo album can go high-def - with direct HD output to your HDTV screen, so you can view DSC-W200 still photos in spectacular High Definition clarity and detail. Your life never looked so exciting!
* HD Output requires an optional Sony HD connector cable; HDTV sold separately.

HD Slide Show with Music - It's the high-definition viewing experience that makes photos come alive on HDTV screens, accompanied by your choice of visual effects and any of four preset musical selections stored in memory or your favorite MP3 tunes downloaded from PC to your camera for use as background music.

9-Point Auto Focus - Because an off-center subject can make your shot more interesting, the DSC-W200 can measure auto-focus precision at 9 points on your screen - giving you greater creative freedom to compose your image.

D-Range Optimization - Powered by the exclusive Sony Bionz high-speed processing engine, D-Range Optimization preserves image data in bright highlights and reveals more detail in shadows or backlit areas - for great results even in difficult lighting conditions.

In-Camera Retouching - The DSC-W200 lets you add creative effects to photos after you shoot - including soft edge filter to soften backgrounds, cross filter to place starry dazzles at highlight points, partial color filter to mute surrounding colors, even fish-eye filter to create interesting fish-eye lens effects.

In-Camera Red-Eye Reduction - Irritating glowing eyes can ruin even the most creative photos - so the DSC-W200 provides in-camera correction at the touch of a button to reduce lingering red-eye effect that other systems might miss.

Large 2.5-inch TFT LCD Screen - The DSC-W200 provides a large, bright 2.5-inch TFT LCD Screen that makes it easy to compose shots, check results and read menus even in bright sunlight as well as view and share photos in sharp, natural color.

Optical Viewfinder - In addition to its bright 2.5-inch LCD Screen, the DSC-W200 has a built-in optical viewfinder to allow shooting in traditional rangefinder camera style and save battery power by turning off your LCD Screen off.

Simple Setup Controls - A quick press of the Home button opens your user-friendly GUI - and you can select functions by simply moving a cursor vertically or horizontally to the appropriate icon. Function names and the on-screen Function Guide Display make it easier to learn camera setup operations.

31 MB Internal Memory - The DSC-W200 allows you to capture a large number of images without a Flash Memory card, so it's great for traveling or for quick candid snapshots.

Memory Stick Duo Media Convenience - A built-in slot accepts optional Memory Stick Duo media or Memory Stick PRO Duo Media - the compact, high-capacity storage media that make it easily to upload photos to your computer or make lab-quality prints at home on your Sony Picture Station Digital printer (sold separately).

18X Smart Zoom Feature - The Sony Smart Zoom feature intelligently crops into the central portion of interest in your photo, avoiding the image degradation of other Digital zooms.

MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode - Captures VGA (640 x 480) audio/video clips at high frame rate (up to 30 frames per second5), with length limited only by the capacity of your media.

Stamina Battery Power - The DSC-W200 provides up to 270 shots with a fully charged NP-BG1 Lithium Ion battery - enough shooting capacity to cover a long weekend or a whole vacation.

Picture Motion Browser Software - Supplied software makes it easier to upload, organize and Search photos on your PC - and provides a convenient map view function to sort photos by location and Display their origin on a world map by using an optional GPS unit.

Comments about Sony DSC-W200 Cyber-shot Digital Camera:

Very comfortable, It doesn't feel cheap like some of the new slim cameras. Has the quality of a Digital SLR, but in a compact digital camera form. It takes great landscape pictures and also low light pictures. The "Super SteadyShot" Did not work as well as I expected. Over all, great camera for a reasonable price.
I also plan on buying the optional Telescopic lens, and panoramic lens.

Comments about Sony DSC-W200 Cyber-shot Digital Camera:

Even though I just got this camera, I love already. When I found out it came in the mail, I literally jumped up and down--maybe even caused an earthquake--and ripped the packaging open with my own two hands. I couldn't wait for the battery to charge, so I just put it in, set the time up, and started taking pictures with it. Everything bad about this camera is stated in the manuel or guidelines already, so there's no complaining since they told you about it beforehand. You get extra buttons to press, that regular average cameras don't have, like trimming, and red eye reduction. It's like photoshop, a camera, videocamera, and much more all in one ! It's just a little expensive, but I like it alot.

Comments about Sony DSC-W200 Cyber-shot Digital Camera:

This camera is wonderful. It quickly takes pictures of moving images and displays beautiful vivid colors. The clarity is astounding. I love the buttons on the outside of the camera, which allow easy access to flash changes. Other models have only touch screen. This camera is well worth the affordable price for quality professional pictures.
