  • 1Description

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W330 Digital Camera (Silver) makes it easy to captures photos with phenomenal clarity. Built into the camera is a beginner-friendly Function Guide that helps you navigate through the various functions and settings displayed on the LCD screen. The camera's 14.1 Megapixels allow you to make really large prints. The camera performs well even in low light, with its High Sensitivity mode with an ISO of 3200 and Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization.

Fast moving subjects are not a problem since the camera can capture 1.8 frames-per-second. This, along with Motion Detection that adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when motion is detected, will help ensure that you capture the decisive moment. To really see your subject in motion, the camera can shoot VGA movies.

Both stills and video are composed and viewed on the 3.0" LCD display. Even when shooting in a tight space, the 26mm wide-angle Sony 4X zoom lens will let you get your shot. Other user-friendly features include Face Detection, Smile Shutter, In-Camera Retouching Tools, and 8 Scene Modes. The lithium-ion battery will help you take many photos before having to recharge the battery.

Easy Shooting Mode
With Easy Shooting mode, even beginners can take great photos. In Easy Shooting mode, easy-to-understand basic instructions are displayed on the LCD screen and the camera switches to all automatic settings, thus removing several function choices and allowing you to focus on just your subject. Since this mode works together with Intelligent Scene Recognition, the camera selects the optimum setting for each scene. In addition, the Easy Mode simplifies Preview mode.
Intelligent Auto (iAuto) Mode
Unlike traditional auto mode, Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode thinks for you, recognizing scenes, lighting conditions, and faces, and adjusts the settings. This results in clearer images, faces with more natural skin tone, and less blur. By incorporating advanced features such as Intelligent Scene Recognition, Face Detection technology, and SteadyShot image stabilization, iAuto mode lets you take advantage of the latest Sony Cyber-shot technology without leaving auto mode. Whether you're shooting landscapes, capturing a beautiful flower, or taking pictures at an indoor birthday party or wedding shower, iAuto mode will optimize your camera's settings to help ensure you come away with a great shot.
Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode
Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode automatically detects nine different types of scenes and, within just 1/30th of a second, selects the appropriate camera settings: Backlight, Backlight Portrait, Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Portrait, Landscape and Macro. iSCN has two modes: Auto and Advanced. In Auto Mode, the camera takes a single shot using the optimal settings. In Advanced Mode, the camera takes a photo with the optimal settings and, if in difficult lighting (low light or back light) immediately takes a second photo with another optimized setting so you can choose which to keep.
Intelligent AF
Thanks to Intelligent AF technology, capture fleeting moments like a child's adorable expression with the ultra-quick AF. The camera is always ready to take the best shot.
Scene Modes
The DSC-W330 features 10 convenient scene modes: High Sensitivity, Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Soft Snap, Landscape, Beach, Snow, Underwater, Gourmet, Pet.
SteadyShot Image Stabilization
SteadyShot image stabilization compensates for camera shake and helps prevent blur by capturing two photos at high shutter speeds and combining them into a single clear image.
Face Detection Technology
Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.
Smile Shutter Technology
Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter button and the camera does the rest. Intelligent Scene Recognition can now be used together with Smile Shutter mode when the Intelligent Auto mode is on. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting.
Motion Detection
Motion Detection, along with Face Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces.
Function Guide
This beginner-friendly optional function helps navigate through the various functions and settings displaying the description of chosen functions or settings on the LCD screen.
