Sony CyberShot DSC-W150 digital camera
With a resolution of 8.1 effective megapixels, the premium Sony CyberShot W150 offers a bright 2.7-inch Clear Photo LCD. The new Sony camera also features a powerful 5x zoom Carl Zeiss wide angle lens, plus Smile Shutter, Face Detection, Super Steady Shot and Intelligent Scene Recognition.
Sony W150 - Face Detection technology
The Sony developed BIONZ image processor inside the Sony DSC-W150 powers improved Face Detection technology, now with even faster tracking plus the ability to recognise faces that are further from the camera. In addition, Face Detection can now distinguish automatically between children and adults, adjusting exposure, skin tone and red-eye reduction for great portraits with any subject.
Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W150 - Detecting smiles
Another Sony first, Smile Shutter waits until the subject smiles before firing the shutter to ensure happy faces in every frame. A new Smile Level setting lets you fine-tune the threshold before a picture’s taken, from a gentle smile to a huge grin.
Sony CyberShot W150 - D-Range optimiser
Also powered by the BIONZ processor, the D-Range Optimiser automatically adjusts exposure and contrast for natural-looking results. It’s highly effective with strongly backlit scenes where there’s a risk of losing high- and low-light detail.
Sony W150 camera - ISO 3200
Sensitivity on the Sony Cyber-Shot W150 is boosted to a maximum ISO 3200 for successful low-noise shots without flash indoors or in dim lighting conditions. It’s teamed with Super SteadyShot optical image stabilisation, delivering a powerful Anti-Blur solution for clearer handheld pictures in low light or at higher zoom settings.
Sony Cyber-Shot W150 - HD Output
An HD Output on the CyberShot W150 lets you enjoy your memories in super-size on your BRAVIA TV or any HD Ready display. Connecting to any PhotoTV HD compatible television or display (via optional output adaptor cable) delivers even more incredible Full HD picture quality with extraordinary detail and realism.
Sony CyberShot W150 - Easy to use camera
Despite superb image quality and advanced shooting functions, the Sony CyberShot W150 is brilliantly simple to use. First-time users will appreciate the friendly on-screen function guide and Easy Shooting mode that keeps things simple without compromising picture quality. There’s also an optical viewfinder that offers extra familiarity for compact camera users switching to digital. The new Sony Cyber-shot W150 will be available throughout Europe mid April 2008
