Sony's history of electronic innovation combines with legendary optics from Carl Zeiss to make phenomenal compact digital cameras. The 7.2MP camera has Carl Zeiss optics with a 3X optical zoom (plus a 2X digital zoom). The 1/2.5" Hole Accumulated Diode sensor allows more light to pass to each pixel for increased sensitivity and reduced noise.
Sony's Clear RAW Noise Reduction System aids in cleaning up the picture noise normally associated with high ISO photography. The High Sensitivity/ISO 1000 mode lets you take pictures in low light without a flash to preserve the mood and take great candid shots.
Multiple movie modes including VX Fine let you take 640x480 movies at up to 30fps limited in length only by the amount of available memory. Picture modes like snow and beach allow you get great shots no matter where you are.
7.2 Megapixel Super HAD CCD The 7.2 megapixel CCD captures excellent detail and definition for large picture prints and cropping. Sony's advanced Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD allows more light to pass to each pixel for increased sensitivity and reduced noise.
Carl Zeiss 3X Optical Zoom Lens Design A top-quality Carl Zeiss 3X optical zoom lens design helps the DSC-W55 bring distant subjects closer and lets you frame shots quickly for better composition—a real advantage for family sports, outdoor fun and travel photos.
Large 2.5" LCD Screen The DSC-W55 provides a large, bright LCD screen for composing shots, checking results, sharing your photos on location and reading camera setup menus even in full sunlight.
High Sensitivity Mode The innovative High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 1000) enables great shooting in low-light conditions. Sony's original Clear RAW NR (Noise Reduction) image processing technology helps suppress color noise accompanying high-sensitivity shooting.
