Sony DSC-S750 overview

  • 1Description

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S780 Digital Camera is a sleek and compact camera with 8.1 megapixel resolution, a 3x optical zoom lens, high ISO 1250 sensitivity for low-light shooting and Stamina Battery Power which provides extended battery life and shooting capacity when using fresh AA-sized batteries.

The bright 2.5" LCD screen makes it easy to frame your shots and view your images. It has 22MB of internal memory so you can shoot pictures and video clips with your camera right away, or you can purchase an optional Memory Stick Duo media card to expand your shooting capability.

The DSC-S780 is also very easy to use with convenient scene modes and fully automated shooting features.

8.1 Megapixel Super HAD CCD
The advanced Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD of the DSC-S780 allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing image noise.
3x Optical Zoom Lens
The 3x zoom provides the equivalent of 35 - 105mm focal length (in 35mm terms) to help bring distant subjects closer and let you frame shots quickly for better composition, and the Smart Zoom feature intelligently "crops into" the central portion of interest in your photo, helping avoid the image degradation caused by the typical digital zoom found on other cameras.
High Sensitivity
The camera provides high sensitivity of ISO 1250 to permit taking shots in low light or you can shoot without flash to preserve the mood.
Convenient Photo Modes
The DSC-S780 includes several convenient photo modes to choose from including Auto, Program Auto, and Scene Selections for Twilight, Portrait, Landscape, and other shooting environments.
Movie Mode
The DSC-S780 can capture Video Clips with sound at a resolution of 320 x 240 (QVGA) with a high frame rate of 30 fps to provide smooth motion.
Internal and Expandable Memory
The DSC-S780 includes 22MB of built-in memory, so you can start shooting right away. The camera also has a slot for optional Memory Stick Duo media with which you can expand the camera memory and store hundreds of high resolution images.
Function Guide
An on-screen Function Guide makes it easy to learn the camera functions by providing a simple text explanation of each camera setting, right on the LCD screen.
Simple Controls
With a quick press of the Home button, the camera opens the user-friendly graphical interface so you can select functions by simply moving a cursor vertically or horizontally to the appropriate icon.
Bright 2.5" LCD Screen
The DSC-S780 has a bright 2.5" color LCD screen for composing shots, checking results, or sharing your photos, and the screen is bright enough to be easily visible - even in full sunlight.
Stamina Battery Power
The included rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery provides sufficient power to capture up to 270 shots on a full charge. That's enough power to cover a long weekend or a whole vacation without needing to recharge.
Includes Picture Motion Browser Software
The supplied Picture Motion Browser software makes it easy to upload, organize and search photos on your PC, and 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.
