DSC-P92 Digital Camera
Sony's range of six new Cyber-shot® digital still cameras (DSC-P32, DSC-P52, DSC-P72, DSC-P92, DSC-P8, and DSC-P10), announced today (Feb. 24, 2003), is a reflection of the consumer boom in digital photography.
"While we're seeing incredible growth in the first-time buyer market, we know there are millions of consumers who are upgrading to get better picture resolution and more features," said Steve Haber, senior vice president of Sony Electronic's Digital Imaging Products Division. "Our new 2003 P-series Cyber-shot camera line-up now starts at 3.2 megapixels, a resolution threshold that will provide even novices with confidence in their photography results."
This model is equipped with 5 million effective pixels and a 3x optical zoom lens. The DSC-P92 combines outstanding picture quality with uncompromising ease of use and is the perfect point-and shoot camera for the newcomer to digital photography. The new model is one of the first new generation cameras that is compatible with Memory Stick Pro which delivers up to 1GB storage capacity. All of the new generation cameras are also compatible with the standard Memory Stick generation.
Five Megapixel resolution allows users to zoom and crop images to get just the shots they want, as well as increase the size of images to make large format prints. In addition, zoom without quality sacrifice is now a reality with the new Smart Zoom function, which intelligently adjusts the zoom ratio according to the image resolution and achieves zoom ratios of up to 12x. Shots in difficult conditions are now worry-free with a bigger assortment of Scene Selection modes that automatically adjust the camera settings for a range of environments. In addition to "Twilight", "Twilight Portrait" and "Landscape," "Snow" lessens the greyness of images containing a large amount of white by adjusting colour temperature and enhancing luminance, and "Beach" emphasises blue and extends depth of field to make sea more vivid. A new exposure warning means users always have the right exposure, as the camera detects the exposure level before taking the shot and a warning blink appears if it is not enough. In addition, Slow Synchronized Flash operates at a slow shutter speed for shooting foreground objects in twilight backgrounds, giving clarity to the background as well as to the foreground and, in daylight conditions, Auto Daylight Synchronised Flash automatically measures the exposure level for foreground objects, which have light behind them. Flash White Balance helps to make colour tones as realistic as possible in shots that contain a lot of reflective surfaces, such as under water.
Many improvements have been made to make the cameras more easy and quick to use so that shots can be taken swiftly with minimum fuss.
