Cyber-shot DSC-T70 Highlights High Performance
Breakthrough technology for instant brilliance! Take superb portraits, capture beautiful smiles, and zoom into action with Cyber-shot advances. Produce clear, crisp portraits every time with Face Detection
Whenever you shoot portraits of family members and friends, you can count on clear reproduction of faces whether subjects are perfectly still or moving slightly. Sonys advanced Face Detection technology synergizes with Bionz to deliver highly precise, high-speed auto-focusing of up to 8 subjects faces when shooting portraits. This synergy ensures quick camera tracking of subjects, even when faces are slightly in motion, and significantly improves the performance of various camera features. For example, it enhances Sonys original auto white balance and skin color control to prevent mistaken estimates of the luminous source (resulting in a reddish image) and mistaken correction of face color. It also improves exposure (including AE) and flash adjustment to prevent under/over exposure of your subjects face and ensure suitable brightness. These improvements in turn help prevent blackout and whiteout in the subjects face caused by exposure and flash settings optimised for the background. Moreover, red-eye reduction automatically activates when Face Detection is ON. Together, these advances enable instant analysis of image data and optimization of exposure and tone according to the scene. All Face Detection features work together to deliver ideal portraits every time. Meet Smile Shutter -- the first photo feature that knows how to capture smiles
For the first time in digital still camera history, you can capture joyous moments that used to get away! Whenever Face Detection finds a face, the unique new Smile Shutter mode spots a smile. Simply activate Smile Shutter, and the camera takes a picture -- automatically! Using Sonys proprietary algorithm, this innovative intelligent auto shutter system responds actively to smiling faces. To start, just choose Smile Shutter from Scene Selection, then press the shutter fully on the subject to be taken; the camera automatically detects the smiling face and closes the shutter. To detect the different degrees of smiles by your subject, you can set Smile Level sensitivity to "high" (to detect a faint smile), "medium" (for a normal smile), or "low" (for a hearty laugh). If there are several subjects in the frame, you can use the Touch Screen to specify the smiling face you want to take as the main subject -- or let the Smile Shutter choose the main subject and take the picture. Moreover, the Smile Shutter is great for taking horizontal as well as vertical pictures -- including group pictures where everybody is smiling, and self-portrait shots that automatically catch spontaneous smiles at the right moment. Think of the countless smiles you never want to miss -- a childs innocent grin, joyful faces of family and friends, your own happy face in travel photos -- and use Smile Shutter to turn good times and good feelings into treasured shots. Time after time, youll smile at the results! Enjoy 8.1 megapixels of exquisite detail
Sony's acclaimed 8.1 megapixel Super HAD CCD offers high-resolution performance in compact dimensions, as well as numerous advances available only from the worlds leading CCD manufacturer. For example, an advanced sensor configuration reduces the gaps between microlenses so that each sensor captures more light for brighter, more accurate images with less noise. Clear, faithful image reproduction is now yours to enjoy. Sharpen your edge with the Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens
The DSC-T70 gives your images the startling accuracy and extra emotional impact of a highly renowned Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens.

Sony boosts your photographic potential with Bionz
|1x/3x optical zoom/15x Smart Zoom|
The cutting-edge Bionz imaging processor, first introduced on the Sony a digital single-lens reflex camera, is now available on a Cyber-shot. Bionz takes advantage of Sonys accumulated imaging technology to digitally process the high-resolution image data from the 8.1-megapixel CCD at high speeds and deliver dynamically clear, high-resolution images with natural color reproduction and minimal noise. Its a level of precision unheard of in small cameras. Optimize the dynamic range of your images automatically
D-Range optimization employs a sophisticated image analysis algorithm originally developed by Sony to automatically determine the best exposure and contrast settings for optimal dynamic range in almost any shooting environment. In this way, the DRO gives your images a natural look with clearer details that match what you see with your naked eye. This is especially effective when shooting backlit portraits or any scene with dramatic contrast between background and foreground lighting. For example, the details of stained glass in a high-rise cathedral can be captured along with the deep blue sky. A clearly better solution: Double "Anti-blur"
Sonys Double "Anti-blur" Solution reduces blur in your images -- both subject shake blur and camera shake blur -- through an intelligent combination of Sonys original Super SteadyShot optical image stabilizer and high sensitivity shooting up to ISO3200. These features are highly effective at reducing blur even when shooting fast-moving subjects and portraits in dimly lit rooms. The gratifying results are extremely clear images every time you shoot. High Sensitivity suppresses subject shake blur
When environmental lighting is dim, such as inside a room or outdoors at twilight, the high-sensitivity ISO3200 setting lets you achieve natural results without using a flash -- even if the subject moves. Blur is reduced and details are clear in the subject and background, so you can take full advantage of the cameras 8.1-megapixel resolution. Super SteadyShot minimizes camera shake blur
Camera shake blur, a common byproduct of handheld shooting, is effectively reduced by the Super SteadyShot optical image stabilizer. This feature employs a built-in gyro sensor that detects camera shake and a shift lens unit that compensates to help prevent blur. As a result, images are clearer in various circumstances, such as when shooting photos in dimly lit rooms. Touch Ease
