Sony S780 - Lithium Ion battery
The Sony Cyber-Shot S780 is the first CyberShot S-Series model to use a high-capacity Sony lithium ion battery instead of standard alkaline cells. This ensures a thinner, lighter profile than previous S-Series cameras. In addition, the slim-line battery takes up less space than conventional cells when you’re carrying spares in a pocket or bag: great when you’re away from home for longer periods and don’t want to run out of power.
Sony CyberShot S780 - High sensitivity mode
The Sony CyberShot S780 lets you capture clear, blur-free pictures without the aid of flash if you’re shooting in low light or on cloudy days. Selecting ‘High Sensitivity’ mode on the easy-to-adjust mode dial boosts sensitivity to ISO 1250. This allows shooting at faster shutter speeds to reduce the risk of camera shake, even with moving subjects.
Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S780 - 2.5-inch LCD screen
A new multi-point autofocus mode ensures sharp, accurately focused images, even when your subject is moving or isn’t in the centre of the frame. Pictures and camera settings can be viewed clearly on the large, high resolution 2.5-inch LCD screen. It’s great for composing and viewing shots as well as reading menus and camera settings. With a wide display viewing angle, everyone can get a clearer picture of your memories, too. Touching a button on the Sony DSC-S780 switches instantly to Playback mode, making it quick and easy to check pictures during shooting. There’s also an on-screen Histogram mode that displays image brightness in graphical form - useful if you’re fine-tuning exposure settings for the best possible results.
Sony Cyber Shot S780 - Camera settings
Digital camera newcomers will appreciate the handy display of functions like flash, macro and self-timer settings. There’s also on-screen advice to help you select the right settings for your chosen subject as selected with the Shooting Mode dial. The Sony S780 digital camera can even help beginners pick the optimum image size for shooting, depending on your preferred printing paper size and the amount of memory space remaining. The Sony CyberShot S780 will be available throughout Europe from end March 2008.
