DSC-W100 - Sony's Cyber-shot® Digital Camera with 8.1 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD

Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-W100 Compact camera 8.1MP 1/1.8" CCD 3264 x 2448pixels Silver:
The official marketing text of Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-W100 Compact camera 8.1MP 1/1.8" CCD 3264 x 2448pixels Silver as supplied by the manufacturer
The Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-W100 is an ideal camera for starting out right in digital photography, combining the quality of 8.1 megapixels and Carl Zeiss® 3X optical zoom, the performance of High Sensitivity mode for great low-light shots, the simplicity of on-screen Function Guide for easy setup, and the convenience of 64 MB1 Internal Memory for shooting images in-camera.

8.1 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD:
Higher megapixels gives you more detail and definition for large prints and cropping in on your subject. Sony’s advanced Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.

Large 2.5"1 LCD Screen:
The DSC-W100 has a bright 2.5"1 LCD screen for setting up and viewing images -- with a one touch "Play" button that makes it quick and easy to view your photos.

Simple Controls, Function Guide:
User-friendly controls and simple on-screen Function Guide text/icon display help you set up camera functions -- and you’ ll have greater creative freedom to adjust color mode (including “Natural” for subtle colors and “Rich” for more intense colors), sensitivity, brightness and image size.

High Sensitivity Mode:
A new High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 1250) allows you to shoot with great results in low-light conditions -- and Sony’s original Clear RAW NR™ (Noise Reduction) image processing technology helps suppress the color noise that can accompany high-sensitivity shooting.

Carl Zeiss® 3X Optical/2X Digital Zoom/6X Total Zoom:
3X Optical Zoom helps the DSC-W50 bring distant subjects closer and lets you frame shots for better composition; Sony’s precision 2X Digital Zoom provides an additional 2X magnification to zoom in close without jagged edges.

Stamina® Battery Power:
With its powerful Lithium Ion rechargeable battery, the DSC-W100 can capture up to 360 images2 -- enough for a week of shooting. The compact BC-CSG Battery Charger is also supplied for battery recharging on the go.

15X Smart Zoom™ Feature:
Sony's Smart Zoom feature lets you magnify your subject beyond the 3x optical zoom - to 3.8x (5MP), 4.8x (3MP), even 15x (VGA). By intelligently cropping into the central portion of the scene, it avoids the image distortion of other digital zooms.

Capture Images In-Camera:
With 64 MB Internal Memory, the DSC-W100 allows you to shoot without a flash memory card --then transfer your images to optional Memory Stick Duo™ media, upload to your computer or make prints on your digital printer.

Memory Stick Duo™ Media:
The DSC-W100 has a built-in slot for optional Memory Stick Duo™ or higher-capacity Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media -- the ultra compact media for shooting, storing and sharing your photo images.

Picture quality
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
Megapixel *
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.
8.1 MP
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.

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′).
