Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 is a compact point-and-shoot digital camera from Sony’s W Cyber-shot series. It has a sophisticated, compact body that is available in silver, black, gold and red.

Features

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 features a 10.1 mega pixel super HAD (hole accumulated diode) CCD that gives you more detail and definition when you make big prints or crop in tight on your subject. Besides that, it also incorporates Carl Zeiss 5x Optical Zoom lens that give you the power to get even closer to the action which comes handy especially when capturing distant landscape views and dramatic portraits. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 also has a 28 mm to 140 mm wide angle lens that allows it to capture more of the scene. There is also a large, bright 2.7 inch clear photo LCD display that has a resolution of 230k pixels which includes an anti-reflective coating that provides for excellent visibility to help you compose, view and share photos with superb clarity and colour reproduction even in bright sunlight. Face detection technology is also incorporated into the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 to allow it to automatically control flash, focus, exposure, and white balance to help reveal faces in shadows, make skin tones look more natural, reduce red-eye and eliminate harsh facial glare. In addition to that, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 also features smile shutter technology that captures smiles the moment they happen. The smile shutter mode can be set to capture when your subject laughs, smiles or even grins, and like Face Detection, smile shutter is able to differentiate between children and adults to set priority. There is also a high sensitivity (ISO 3200) mode that allow you to shoot effectively in low light without flash to preserve the mood, while the Sony Clear RAW Noise Reduction system helps suppress the colour noise that can degrade low-light shots. Not only that, there is also an intelligent scene recognition mode that automatically detects 5 different types of scenes and selects the appropriate camera setting that includes backlight, backlight portrait, twilight, twilight portrait, and twilight using a tripod. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 also features Dynamic Range Optimization Standard & Plus that is powered by the exclusive Sony BIONZ high-speed processing range to preserve image data in bright highlights as well as reveal more detail in shadows or backlit areas even in difficult lighting conditions.
