The Super-slim styling of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T70 Digital Camera incorporates an impressive range of high tech features including a high quality super sharp 3x zoom Carl Zeiss lens that utilizes Sony's acclaimed Steady-Shot image stabilization, 8 megapixels of image resolution for astounding photo detail, and a large 3.0" widescreen touch-panel LCD dispaly. The camera also includes other exclusive innovative technologies like Face Detection-2, Smile Shutter Mode, in-camera retouching, D-range optimization and HD (high definition) output to expand the possibilities of digital photography, while making the camera extremely easy to use for photographers at any skill level.

Sleek, Ultra-Slim Design
The Ultra slim design of the DSC-T70 easily slips into your pocket, or handbag, while the styling is so clean and sharp that you won't want to keep it there. Furthermore the touch-panel LCD simplifies the cameras appearance and operation by replacing cumbersome function buttons with easy on-screen icons.
8.1 Megapixel Super HAD CCD
The advanced Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD is specially designed to allow more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity while reducing noise, so your images will look gorgeous - even when taken under low light conditions. Furthermore, the high resolution ensures that your photo prints will look sharp, even at printouts of 20x30" in size.
Carl Zeiss 3X Optical Zoom Lens
The world renowned quality of the Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens ensures that your images will be sharply focused while the 3x zoom range ensures that you will be able to obtain intimate images without disturbing the scene. The optical zoom is also available while the camera is shooting video - making the T70 an excellent camcorder replacement. Moreover, the macro and magnifying glass modes are provided for super-sharp close-ups and miniature hobby photography.
Super SteadyShot Optical Image Stabilization
Sony's exclusive Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization combined with a high sensitivity (ISO 3200) means that the DSC-T70 compensates for shaky hands, minimizes blur and allows flash-free shooting to preserve the mood, plus Sony Clear RAW Noise Reduction reduces the picture noise that can ruin low-light or high ISO shots.
9-Point Auto Focus
The DSC-T70 can measure auto-focus at 9 points over the image, giving you greater creative freedom to compose your image, and place your subjects off of the center of the image, yielding a more interesting composition.
15X Smart Zoom (at VGA Resolution)
The Cyber-shot DSC-T70 intelligently "crops into" the central portion of interest in your photo without sacrificing full CCD resolution - avoiding the image degradation of digital zooms.
D-Range Optimization
The exclusive Sony Bionz high-speed processing engine provides the T70 with D-range optimization that preserves image data in bright highlights and reveals more detail in shadows or backlit areas.
Face Detection-2 and Smile Shutter Mode
Sony latest Face Detection technology recognizes up to 8 faces in a photo and automatically controls focus, exposure, color and flash to bring out the best in everyone. The Smile Shutter Mode helps you capture more smiles by shooting automatically when your subject laughs, smiles, even grins after the focus has been fixed. You select the person to watch and the expression to catch and the Face Detection system and intelligent Smile Shutter algorithm do the rest!
MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode
The DSC-T70 can capture VGA (640 x 480) audio/video clips at high frame rate (up to 30 frames per second), with length limited only by the capacity of your media. The camera can also record standard quality and presentation quality videos for viewing on your computer screen or using video clips on web pages.
Built-in and Removable Memory
With 31MB of built in memory, the DSC-T70 allows you to shoot photos without a flash memory card so you can always get your shot even if you forgot your card. You can easily transfer your images from camera memory to optional Memory Stick Duo media, upload shots to your computer or make prints on your digital printer.
3.0" Widescreen Clear Photo LCD Plus Display with Touch-Screen Operation
The impressive 3.0" Widescreen Clear Photo LCD Plus displays photos in superb clarity and natural color, and incorporates an AR (anti-reflective) coating for excellent visibility even in bright sunlight. Furthermore, the touch-panel LCD replaces small buttons with simple on-screen icons and a user-friendly interface that make camera operation faster and simpler.
In-Camera Retouching and Red-Eye Reduction
Add creative effects to photos after you shoot. Included effects are soft edge filter to soften backgrounds, cross filter to place starry "dazzles" at highlight points, partial color filter to mute surrounding colors and fish-eye filter to create interesting results. The red-eye reduction feature reduces irritating "glowing eyes" that can ruin even the most creative photos at the touch of a button.
HD Output
View your still photos from your DSC-T70 Camera with spectacular clarity and detail directly on a Sony Bravia HDVT or other compatible HDTV screens with an optional HD solution such as a Cyber-shot cradle/charger with component cable output, or component cable directly to your HDTV. Then watch as your photos come alive, accompanied by your choice of visual effects and any of four preset musical selections stored in memory or your favorite MP3 tunes downloaded from PC to your camera for use as background music.
Stamina Battery Power
The supplied NP-BD1 InfoLithium rechargeable battery lets you shoot up to 250 pictures on a full charge, recharges quickly and easily, and shows you about how much shooting capability remains.
Picture Motion Browser Software
The supplied Picture Motion Browser Software makes it easier to upload, organize and search photos on your PC. The software also provides a convenient map view function to sort photos by location and display their origin on a world map by using an optional GPS unit.
