About the size of a credit card, the ultra-slim Sony Cybershot DSC-T30 Digital Camera combines power, portability, and playback with features that will help you take great shots with or without a flash. With 7.0 megapixels of effective resolution, a High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 1000) for superb results without flash to preserve the mood or shoot in areas where flash isn't permitted, and the Super SteadyShot system to reduce blur from shaky hands, you'll be able to get fantastic images, regardless of the subject or shooting environment. You can also create slide shows with select music playback for viewing on an extra-large 3.0" Clear Photo LCD Plus screen.

Sleek Styling with Ultra-Slim Dimensions
The Sony DSC-T30 has a sleek, ultra-slim design that's only about the size of a credit card.
7.2 Megapixel Super HAD CCD
Sony's advanced Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise, thereby giving each photo greater detail when you make large prints and view pictures on big-screen TVs.
Carl Zeiss 3x Optical Zoom Lens
An ingenious lens design from world famous lens manufacturer - Carl Zeiss, provides 3x Optical Zoom capability in amazingly compact camera dimensions. Amazingly, even at full zoom, the lens doesn't project beyond the camera body, preserving the ultra-slim styling of the DSC-T30 Digital Camera. There is also 2x Digital zoom providing a combined zoom capability of 6x.
14x Smart Zoom Feature
Sony's Smart Zoom feature lets you magnify your subject beyond the 3x optical zoom - to 3.6x (5MP), 4.5x (3MP), even 14x (VGA). By intelligently cropping into the central portion of the scene, which avoids the image distortion of other digital zooms.
Super SteadyShot Optical Image Stabilization
To compensate for shaky hands, Sony's Super SteadyShot system detects camera movement and sends correcting signals to a stabilization lens to reduce image blur - a real advantage when shooting in low light with such a small camera.
High Sensitivity Mode
Get sharp, clear photos without flash - the DSC-T30 provides a High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 1000) to let you shoot in low light without flash to preserve the mood or capture great shots in locations where flash is not permitted. Combined with Sony's Clear RAW Noise Reduction system and Super SteadyShot system, you'll be able to get great results with a wide range of subjects and lighting conditions.
MPEG Movie Capture
The DSC-T30 can capture movie clips using the MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode, which provides VGA quality (640 x 480) video clips with sound at high frame rate (up to 30 frames per second), with length limited only by the capacity of your media. There is also the MPEG Movie VX Standard Mode (640 x 480 at 16 fps) and a Video Mail mode (160 x 112 @ 8.3fps).
Versatile Color Modes
The DSC-T30 gives you greater creative freedom to adjust color mode for the creative results you want, with a Natural setting for subtle colors and a Vivid setting for more intense colors, in addition to Standard, Monochrome and Sepia color settings.
Real Imaging Processor LSI
To improve camera response and extend battery life, Sony's Real Imaging Processor LSI (Large Scale Integrated) circuit decreases shutter lag, improves picture quality and clarity, and increases battery stamina.
High-Stamina InfoLithium Rechargeable Battery
A supplied NP-FR1 InfoLithium rechargeable battery lets you shoot up to 420 pictures on a full charge, recharges quickly and easily, and shows you about how much shooting time remains.
Built-in and Expandable Memory
With 58MB of Internal Memory, the DSC-T30 allows you to shoot photos without a flash memory card, so you can always get your shot even if you forgot your card. The available memory can be expanded up to 2GB with memory Stick Duo or Memory Stick Pro Duo Media. Furthermore, images can be transferred from internal memory to Memory Stick media for easy sharing.
3.0" Clear Photo LCD Plus Screen
With its Clear Photo LCD Plus design, the large 3.0" screen of the DSC-T30 gives you a big, bright image that makes it easy to set up shots, share results and read menus even in bright sunlight.
Slide Show with Select Music Playback
View in-camera images in Slide Show sequence, with one-button operation, selectable transition effects and up to four music background tracks that make it more entertaining to share your memories with family and friends. You can even use supplied Picture Package Music Transfer software to add your own favorite music.
