With a digital camera all the pictures you make are stored digitally, which means you can instantly view a picture after you have taken it and take as many pictures as you like, without having to buy new films all the time. It is easy to download the pictures from your camera to your computer, either at home or at the shop and edit them before printing. Once they are on your computer, you can easily share your pics with the rest of the world by putting them on-line, or e-mailing them to friends.

Marketing text Sony DSC-P72 compact camera

The official marketing text of Sony DSC-P72 compact camera as supplied by the manufacturer
The DSC-P72 features a combination of technologies designed to enhance exposure and focus under all conditions. In compact, stylish metallic casing, this model records video with audio, and captures vivid, razor-sharp still images making the switch from film to digital photography more compelling than ever. Featuring the headline-grabbing 3.3-megapixel Super HAD CCD, the model delivers stunning high-resolution images. Picture quality is crisper and clearer - ewhiteially significant in low-light situations or for shooting night views. The Optical Zoom function allows users to zoom up to 3x. Add to this the useful technologies that users may never be explicitly aware of: Smart Zoom, Clear Color Noise Reduction and Clear Color Luminance Reduction. Smart Zoom ensures that the enlarged images yield the same high resolution as the originals; Clear Color Noise Reduction accurately renders areas with similar color; and Clear Luminance Reduction lowers luminance noise without destroying resolution data. The new MPEG MovieVX mode enables the camera to continuously record high-quality MPEG videos with sound at resolutions up to 640 x 480 pixels, allowing users to watch audio-visual clips full-screen on TV. With a 1 GB Memory Stick PRO, the camera can record continuous video clips of up to 44 minutes. Thanks to Multi-point Auto Focus, this Cyber-shot model locates and focuses on the main subject, ensuring the star of the photo appears razor-sharp. To deal with uneven light conditions, Multi-pattern Metering divides the frame into 49 segments and meters each of them individually - so even if there is bright sand in one corner of the scene, and a shady tree in another, the image is accurately exposed.

Picture Quality
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
3.2 MP
Camera type*
There are a number of common types of digital cameras: compact cameras, bridge cameras, mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC) and single lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Bridge cameras 'bridge the gap' between the low-end compact and high-end professional (SLR) cameras. Also MILCs populate this mid-segment by combining the larger sensors and interchangeable lenses of DSLRs with the live-preview viewing system of compact cameras.
Compact camera
Image sensor size*
Sensor type*
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Maximum image resolution*
Resolution is the amount of detail held by an image. The higher the resolution, the better (sharper) the image. The maximum image resolution produces the best image.
2048 x 1536 pixels
Still image resolution(s)*

Image stabilizer*
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
Supported aspect ratios
The aspect ratio is the ratio of the width of an image to its height. The supported aspect ratios are the aspect ratios that can be shown by the device.
Lens System
Optical zoom*
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom*
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).

Field of view
Camera viewfinder
A viewfinder is the window in the camera through which a photographer views the picture. Used for choosing, composing, and often focusing the image. There are two types: optical and digital. In an optical viewfinder, the photographer looks through a transparent window to frame and focus the image. The photographer is seeing the real image, through the window of the viewfinder. With a digital viewfinde, there is an LCD display built into a camera that gives a digital view of where the camera is pointing. It's used to compose and focus the image.
