DSC-P8 Digital Camera
"While we're seeing incredible growth in the first-time buyer market, we know there are millions of consumers who are upgrading to get better picture resolution and more features," said Steve Haber, senior vice president of Sony Electronic's Digital Imaging Products Division. "Our new 2003 P-series Cyber-shot camera line-up now starts at 3.2 megapixels, a resolution threshold that will provide even novices with confidence in their photography results."
The size of the new DSC-P8 is ultra-compact with a metal construction. The digital camera is using a 14-bit DXP and a Clear Color/Luminance Noise Reduction function to make this end result as high quality as possible. The DSC-P8 features a Tracking Auto-Focus System to maintain continuous focus lock on moving subjects, a live histogram, and adjustable color saturation and contrast. The new Cyber-shot model is also able to handle with video clips with the new MPEG VX movie function that also records audio. The new Smart Zoom option replaces digital zoom, and intelligently uses the full resolution of the camera's imager at lower resolution settings to zoom into the portion of interest by cropping the image size.
