Sony DSC-F505 Specifications
Mega Pixel Digital Still Camera: The DSC-F505 features a high performance 1/2" Super HAD CCD with over 2 million pixels. This will capture professional looking still images with excellent picture clarity and true to life color reproduction.
Super HAD CCD: High quality Super HAD design CCD imager that reduces noise in the imager to improve signal-to-noise ratio for better overall image quality. Particularly effective when shooting black objects or in dark situations.
Uses Memory Stick digital data storage: The new standard for storage and transfer media. Smaller than a stick of chewing gum, Memory Stick digital data storage has many times the capacity of a standard 3.5" floppy disk, while providing the ability to interface with and between a potentially endless array of audio/video and computer products. With Memory Stick digital data storage, you can even transfer information, such as data, text, images and graphics without ever using a PC, using products such as the Sony CyberframeTM PHD-A55 digital photo frame or the DPP-MS300 Memory Stick Printer. Memory Stick storage media is currently available in 8, 16 and 32 MB capacities, with 64MB available fall '99.
High Quality UXGA high resolution: The DSC-F505 will capture still images with UXGA ultra high quality resolution (up to 1600 x 1200), which is professional quality for printing photos from your computer.
5X Optical/10X Precision Digital Zoom: Helps bring the action close up from far away. Improved interpolation technology means that digital zooming is cleaner and clearer than ever before, with less blocking and distortion than most other types of digital zoom.
Professional Quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar Lens: A professional quality precision lens that uses a unique lens coating that reduces glare and flaring, while providing improvement in detail and contrast.
2" Hybrid LCD Monitor with Brightness Control (122 Pixels): A Hybrid system consisting of a transmissive LCD combined with a reflective LCD. By turning the backlight off, the LCD will capture more ambient light allowing you to reduce power consumption by 20%. This will save on battery power, and help prevent LCD "wash-out" even in difficult lighting conditions.
MPEG Movie Mode allows you to capture video and audio onto Sony's Memory Stick digital storage media for input onto your computer. Use the Video Mail mode to record video and audio at 160 x 112 resolution for fast and easy downloads over the internet, or use the Presentation mode at 320 x 240 to add to your computer presentations or playback on your television at home or office.
Voice Memo Mode: Add narration to still images for e-mail or presentations, even play them back on your television.
Slide Show Mode: Create a slide show of your favorite images on Memory Stick storage media and use the video out to playback automatically on your television.
High Speed Scan Auto Focus with Auto Macro capability: Sony's new Auto Focus technology delivers the highest level of focusing accuracy. This high-speed system insures that your pictures are sharp and clear. For extra close-ups, auto macro allows the camera to focus sharply within 4" of the subject.
Audio/Video output (PAL/NTSC Switchable): Audio/Video output allow for easy viewing of images and MPEG movies on any television with standard video inputs. PAL/NTSC (selected in menu system) allows for viewing even while travelling abroad.
InfoLithium Battery with AccuPower Meter: The DSC-F505 uses a rechargeable InfoLithium battery with virtually no memory effect (NP-FS11). The AccuPower feature continuously displays the amount of power remaining, in minutes, in the LCD display.
White Balance (Auto/Indoor/Outdoor/One Push): Flexible for every shooting situation to assure accurate color. Choose from preset Auto, Indoor, Outdoor, or Hold White Balance control.
Playback Zoom with Crop and Save Feature: Edit images during playback by zooming in and cropping the original 1600 x 1200 image. Use the control button to move and search the entire area of the picture to select a portion to crop. The newly cropped portion is then saved as it's own VGA image file, while retaining the original UXGA file.
USB Interface: For fast, easy connection to PC with one of today's most popular and convenient interface standards. USB connection cable supplied.
RS-232C Serial Interface: Connect through virtually any PC via the RS-232C serial interface with the supplied serial cable. Picture Gear software is included to increase flexibility by offering basic manipulation and image catalog features.
