From the Manufacturer

The DSC-L1 is the full-featured Cybershot digital camera that is small enough to take anywhere. With a 4.1-megapixel Super HAD CCD, a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with 3x optical zoom and Sony's own Real Imaging Processor, the DSC-L1 features image capture quality on par with a camera twice its size. Other features include PictBridge compatibility for easy printing without a personal computer and MPEG Movie VX Fine video recording when used with Memory Stick PRO Duo media (not included). The Sony DSC-L1 also comes in four colors: silver, blue matte, black, and red.

At only 3 11/15 by 1 3/4 by 1 inches, the DSC-L1 is small enough to be carried easily in your pocket or purse and, at only 5.0 ounces with body, battery, and Memory Stick Duo media, lightweight enough to be worn comfortably with the included neck strap. It is perfect for snap photography wherever you are, so you will always be able to capture life as it happens.

0-10x Smart Zoom feature (at VGA resolution)
Smart Zoom intelligently uses the full CCD to let you zoom into the portion of interest by cropping the image size--thus avoiding the image degradation of digital zooms.

Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens
The Vario-Tessar lens is specially produced for very compact cameras. This specialized design allows quick auto-focus, appealing zoom range while still maintaining a compact design.

Real Imaging Processor
The innovative Real Imaging Processor in the DSC-T3 not only improves picture quality and clarity but also improves camera response time, decreases shutter lag, and improves battery stamina.

14-bit DXP A/D conversion
Sony's 14-bit Digital EXtended Processor (DXP) captures the range between highlight and shadow with up to 16,384 values for extended dynamic contrast and detail.

Five-area Multi-Point Autofocus
By evaluating five separate focus areas of the frame, Sony's Multi-Point AF system can intelligently focus on the subject and avoid mistakenly focusing on the background.

AF (autofocus) illuminator
Briefly illuminating the subject in low- or no-light conditions, the AF illuminator helps establish a positive focus lock.

Multi-Pattern Measuring
Independently light-metering 49 points of the frame, Multi-Pattern Measuring establishes the optimum exposure even when highlight and shadow isn't centered in the frame.

Scene Selection mode
With seven Scene Modes, parameters can be matched to the shooting conditions. Choose from one of the following: Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Landscape, Soft Snap, Candle, Snow, or Beach

Slow Shutter Noise Reduction
During long exposures, Slow Shutter NR captures the scene and then the CCD noise pattern with a dark frame exposure. By subtracting the two, even long exposures can be clear.

Memory Stick Duo media
Digital. Powerful. Transportable. Memory Stick Duo media is compact, portable, and rugged--connecting a variety of hardware and software applications.

MPEG Movie VX Standard/Fine Mode with audio
Captures VGA (640 x 480) high frame rate (up to 30 frames per second) audio-video clips with length limited only by the capacity of the media. Video mail mode captures smaller file sizes suitable for email.

PictBridge compatibility
Connect to any PictBridge compatible printer with the supplied USB cable and print directly from the camera. Images can be viewed and selected for printing right on the camera's LCD, with menus for print quantity, date, and index print.

1/2.7-inch 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
Optical zoom helps you fill the frame with your subject for better pictures. And Sony's Precision Digital Zoom helps bring your subject closer with an extra 2x magnification.

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 correct exposure.

Selectable focus mode
Monitoring AF (autofocus) helps you anticipate the action by focusing even before you press the shutter release.

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.

Four-Shot Burst mode
Capture up to four shots at full resolution at 1.1 frames per seconf. 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.

Super compact design
The DSC-L1/R is super compact (less than 100 cubic centimeters) and easy to use, helping you capture life as it happens. Small enough to wear, with colors to complement any fashion.

Rechargeable InfoLithium battery
Provides reliable, long-lasting power for continuous shooting without "memory effect." The supplied AC-LS5 adapter/charger provides stable power for USB transfer.
