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.

The short editorial description of Sony DSC-P73
Cyber-shot Digital Camera 4.0 mp 3x optical zoom silver

Marketing text Sony DSC-P73

The official marketing text of Sony DSC-P73 as supplied by the manufacturer
Looking for a digital camera with big features at a reasonable price? The Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-P73 is just the camera for you.

The DSC-P73 features all of the extras you would expect from a camera twice its price, such as 5 area multi-point auto focus, slow shutter noise reduction, manual exposure control and multi-pattern measuring. It even features PictBridge™ compatibility, so you can print directly from the camera without the need of a computer.

Images are outstanding thanks to the combination of a 4.1 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD, 3X optical zoom lens, and Sony’s Real Imaging Processor. Incredibly, all of these features come in a camera that is compact and easy to use.

1/2.7" 4.1 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD
Super HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCDs provide excellent image quality by allowing more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.
3X Optical / 2X Digital / 6X Total Zoom
3X Optical Zoom helps you frame your shots for better digital pictures. And Sony’s Precision Digital Zoom provides an additional 2X magnification without the jagged edges of other designs, resulting in smoother images.
1.5" LCD Monitor
The 1.5" 67K LCD Monitor makes framing shots and reviewing pictures easy. • Live Histogram Display
Available in capture and playback, the Live Histogram Displays the concentration of pixels at each luminosity value making it easy to evaluate the correct exposure.
Selectable Focus Mode
Monitoring AF (Auto Focus) helps you anticipate the action by focusing even before you press the shutter release.
Scene Selection Mode
With 6 Scene Modes, parameters can be matched to the shooting conditions. Choose from one of the following: Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Landscape, Soft Snap, Candle, or Beach.
Pre-Flash Metering
With a momentary pre-flash, the camera illuminates the subject and sets exposure through the lens for accurate flash metering. Adjustable flash level and red-eye reduction ensure great flash shots.
4 Shot Burst Mode
Capture up to 4 shots (fine) or 7 shots (standard) at 1.7 frames/sec. even at 4 MP resolution. Perfect for high speed subjects or fast moving action such as sports.
Multi-Burst Mode
Captures 16 320 x 240 frames as part of a single 1280 x 960 image which plays back sequentially in the camera. Selectable 1/7.5, 1/15, 1/30 second. Conversion Lens Compatible
With the optional VAD-PEB adaptor, you can add tele- or wide- conversion lenses for greater magnification or wider field of view, as well as protective and special effect filters.
Audio/Video Output
Display images or MPEG movies with audio on a TV (with A/V input) for everyone to enjoy.

Rechargeable AA NiMH Batteries
The high capacity 2100 mAh AA NiMH batteries provide reliable, long-lasting power for continuous shooting. The supplied BC-CS2 charger provides a convenient way to charge the batteries.

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.
4.1 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.
Still image resolution(s)*
List of image resolutions that supported by device.
640 x 480,1280 x 960,2048 x 1536,2272 x 1520,2272 x 1704
Image stabilizer*
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.

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′).
0.236 - 0.709" (6 - 18 mm)

Centre-weighted metering: the meter concentrates between 60 to 80 percent of the sensitivity towards the central part of the viewfinder. Spot metering: the camera will only measure a very small area of the scene (between 1-5% of the viewfinder area).

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.
Ports & interfaces
PictBridge is an industry standard introduced in 2003 from the Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) for direct printing. It allows images to be printed directly from digital cameras to a printer, without having to connect the camera to a computer using common connectivity like USB or Bluetooth.
White balance *

Camera CCD sensor
CCD (Charged Coupled Device): A silicone chip comprised of millions of tiny, square light-gathering diodes called Picture Elements, or pixels, laid out in a checkerboard pattern. This is the "film" of a digital camera. The light data gathered from these tiny pixels needs to be "processed" by the camera's image processor into Recorded Pixels. \n\n\n\nSuper CCD: A proprietary CCD system, produced by Fujifilm, that utilizes larger, octagonal-shaped, light-gathering diodes called Picture Elements, or pixels, that are laid out in a saw-tooth pattern. Super CCDs can capture more light information than ordinary CCDs; the extra information is used by the camera's image processor to improve color accuracy and ISO Speed. \n\n\n\n Super CCD HR (High Resolution): Is capable of nearly doubling the Number of Effective Pixels that are processed and stored as additional detail in the Recorded Pixel file. \n\n\n\n Super CCD SR (Sensitivity and Range): Uses a combination of small and large octagonal-shaped pixels to further enhance color accuracy, while improving detail in the areas of shadows and highlights, much like traditional film
