Smartphones Don't Shoot Like This
Make it memorable with Sony Full HD/60p quality. Capture amazing footage in low
light, get close to the action with a 27x zoom, wide-angle Carl Zeiss® lens and
say goodbye to shake with SteadyShot™ image stabilization. It's the perfect
starter camera.

The Makings of a Masterpiece
Precious moments become even more special the second time around when
recorded in exquisitely rich 1920 x 1080/60p Full HD video. And now thanks to
Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R® CMOS sensor, you can capture every minute of
birthday parties, campfire sing-alongs, or any other situation where lighting is
less than perfect in vivid clarity and lifelike detail. Notice the perfect photo
op while recording? You can shoot 9.2MP still images and video at the same time
so you won't miss an ounce of the action.

Wide-Angle Shooting
Fit more fun into every shot with a high-quality 29.8mm wide-angle Carl
Zeiss Vario-Tessar® lens, the authority in lens technology.

Incredible 27x Optical Zoom
Get amazingly close with 27x optical zoom plus 54x Clear Image digital zoom.
Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject,
resulting in blurry images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor
compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match
selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear
Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos and video.

Sharp Screen for Perfect Shots
The 2.7" (16:9) Clear Photo™ LCD (230K) screen displays sharp, bright, vivid
images, letting you compose a shot more easily – even outdoors, while giving you
the ability to change settings to best capture the scene.

Shake-free Footage
SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater
degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video – from wide angle,
all the way to full telephoto shooting. Innovative 3-way shake-canceling adds
electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture. It's perfect for
shooting footage while walking, chasing after the kids or any other
less-than-steady scenario.

Face Detection with Voice Enhancement
Capture every smile, every laugh and every memory in perfect clarity via
Sony's Face Detection technology with voice enhancement and noise reduction. It
automatically distinguishes between children and adults, and also detects up to
eight individual faces to adjust flash, focus, exposure, and white balance to
help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.
