Sony Cybershot S800
Sony Cybershot DSC-S800 : Teaming great looks and superb imaging performance with a powerful 6x zoom lens, the Sony Cybershot DSC-S800 opens up the exciting world of digital photography to everyone. Weighing just 185g (without battery and media), the beautifully compact Sony Cybershot S800 stands out from the crowd thanks to its sleek lines and luxurious allmetal body. It’s also incredibly easy to use, even if you’ve never picked up a digital camera before. Pulling you closer to the action, the 6x optical zoom lens offers the highest magnification ever from a compact Cyber-shot model - boosted further still to 12x with digital zoom. In macro mode it’s possible to focus right down to 2cm for fantastic close-up views of any subject. |

The powerful 6x zoom lens is naturally complemented by excellent imaging capabilities. Experienced photographers will value the 8.1 effective Megapixel resolution 1/1.8-inch Super HAD CCD sensor for crisp, clear images that still look great even when enlarged to A4 sized prints. Novices and photo experts alike will also appreciate the camera’s high sensitivity that makes it easier to grab blur-free images with fast-moving subjects or when shooting in low light without flash. The Sony S800 features a special high sensitivity mode of ISO 1250, selectable via the user-friendly mode dial for great results every time.

It’s easy to view your shots on the high-quality 2.5-inch TFT LCD screen.

Despite its powerful imaging capabilities, you don’t have to be a photo enthusiast to get the best out of the Sony Cybershot DSC-S800 digital compact camera. The easy-to-follow Function Guide offers simple advice on picking the optimal shooting mode for any subject.
