Going Digital - Sony Digital Camera Cyber-shot T series

DSC-T1 Cyber-shot

The high-end camera that fits in your back pocket. Sony’s DSC-T1 features a huge 5.1 Megapixel resolution, 3X Optical Zoom, and a 2.5” Hybrid LCD Monitor, all in a package the size of a credit card. The T1 even packs extra features you would normally expect on a camera twice its size, such as a high-quality Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® Lens, Sony’s high-speed Real Image Processor, 5 Area Multi-Point Focus. It is even able to capture full screen VGA (640x 480) video at an astounding 30 frames per second. It’s twice the camera at half the size.

The ultra-compact and thin size of the DSC-T1 makes it the perfect camera to tuck in a pocket or purse for high-quality, high resolution photos almost anywhere.
  Real Imaging Processor
The innovative Real Imaging Processor in the DSC-T1 not only improves picture quality and clarity but also improves camera response time, decreases shutter lag, and improves battery stamina.
  3X Optical/2X Digital/6X Total Zoom
3X Optical Zoom helps you frame your shots for better digital pictures. And Sony’s Precision Digital Zoom provides an additional 2X magnification without the jagged edges of other designs, resulting in smoother images.
  0 – 4X Smart Zoom™ Feature (at VGA Resolution)
Smart Zoom 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.
  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.
  2.5" Hybrid LCD Monitor
The enormous 2.5” LCD provides a high resolution view while shooting, with transmissive/reflective Hybrid design for extraordinary brightness in direct sunlight and large, easy to read menus. Unique in such a compact camera, this large screen makes it easy to share image playback with friends.
  Continuous Auto Focus
To maintain accurate focus lock with fast moving subjects, Continuous AF keeps focusing from the time the camera is turned on until the moment of exposure, providing properly focused mages even when your subject is moving.
  Memory Stick Duo™ Media
Digital. Powerful. Transportable.™ Memory Stick Duo media is compact, portable and rugged— connecting a variety of hardware and software applications.
  Multi-Burst Mode
Captures 16 consecutive 320 x 240 frames as part of a single 1280 x 960 image which plays back sequentially in the camera or as a single image on your computer. Selectable 1/7.5, 1/15, 1/30 second frame intervals provide convenient motion analysis.
  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.
  Rechargeable InfoLithium® Battery
Provides reliable, long-lasting power for continuous shooting, without “Memory Effect”. The supplied AC-LM5 adapter/charger provides stable power for USB Transfer.
  USB Cradle
Placing the DSC-T1 on the supplied USB Cradle provides a quick and easy connection between the camera and a TV for easy viewing, or a USB supported computer for MPEG video and still image transfer. It also supplies power to the camera for charging the battery.
