Key Features

• 8.1 Megapixel Super HAD CCD
The advanced Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD of the DSC-H3 provides 8.1 megapixels of resolution for images with detail and definition to make big prints or crop in tight on your subject. Furthermore, The Super HAD CCD allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.

• Carl Zeiss10X Zoom Lens
The Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens provides a 10x optical zoom to bring distant subjects closer and lets you frame shots quickly for better composition. Additionally, the camera is equipped with a Smart Zoom feature that intelligently "crops into" the central portion of your photo, providing up to an additional 51x zoom at VGA resolution while avoiding the image degradation common with digital zoom. There is also a traditional 2x digital zoom to quickly pick up even the smallest detail of your subject.

• Super SteadyShot Optical Image Stabilization
Sony's Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization uses optical sensors to detect camera movement and send correcting signals to a stabilization lens to minimizes blur caused by shaky hands, and allows even ultra-long-distance digital photos to capture more detail with less camera shake distortion.

• Sleek Compact Body
Sony radically redesigned the positioning of key camera components to fit a powerful 10X Optical zoom capability into a compact design that's easy to carry anywhere. The grip fits firmly into your hand, and the lens ring adds a high-performance feel

• Advanced Sports Mode
The DSC-H3 includes a sports shooting mode that combines high shutter speed with intelligent continuous AF that responds more quickly to rapid motion to catch the perfect moment in sports, children's games, pet tricks and more.

• Face Detection-2
The Face Detection-2 system incorporated into the camera recognizes up to 8 faces in a photo and automatically controls focus, exposure, color and flash to reveal faces in shadow, make skin tones look more natural and eliminate harsh facial glare.

• Manual Exposure Modes
For more creative freedom, a simple wheel-dial control lets you quickly change camera settings in manual modes (shutter speed priority, aperture priority, or manual exposure) and also control ISO sensitivity, focus area, and exposure value. In play mode, the wheel dial provides a quick way to view your next or previous shot.

• Long-Distance Flash
The powerful built-in flash provides illumination sufficient to light up a subject over 23' from your camera, with precise light control and the ability to adjust the flash for both front and rear sync when shooting at low-speed sync setting. Plus Auto Daylight Synchro provides effective fill-in flash illumination for backlit subjects, and Macro Flash lets you take ultra-close-up shots with optimal exposure and minimal "whiteout" effect.

• High Sensitivity Mode
The high sensitivity mode (ISO 3200) lets you shoot effectively in low light without flash to preserve the mood, helps to minimize blur, and brightens your images. Additionally, the Clear RAW NR (Noise Reduction) system will take care of the picture noise that can ruin low-light shots.

• 9-Point Auto Focus
The DSC-H3 can measure auto-focus precision at 9 points on your screen giving you greater creative freedom to compose your image, with the ability to place your subject off-center in the frame.

• D-Range Optimization
Powered by the exclusive Sony Bionz high-speed processing engine, D-range optimization preserves image data in bright highlights and reveals more detail in shadows or backlit areas to provide great results even in difficult lighting conditions.

• MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode
The DSC-H3 lets you capture VGA (640 x 480) video clips with sound at high frame rate of up to 30 frames per second, with the clip length limited only by the capacity of your media.

• Large 2.5" LCD Screen
Use the large, bright LCD screen for composing shots, checking results and sharing your photos on location. Plus the simple camera menus and a simple Function Guide that displays menu information makes it easier for beginners to learn and use the cameras features.

• Built-in and Expandable Memory
The DSC-H3 has 31MB of built-in memory allowing you to capture images without a memory card. However, the camera also has a built-in slot for optional Memory Stick Duo or Memory Stick PRO Duo media (sold separately), that can support capacities of up to 8GB to store literally thousands of images.

• HD Output and HD Slide Show
Present your pictures on a compatible HDTV screen thanks to direct HD (high definition) output (requires an optional adapter) - now you can view your still photos with spectacular HD clarity and detail. Furthermore, the HD Slide Show feature means that you can watch your photos come alive, accompanied by your choice of visual effects and any of four preset musical selections stored in memory or your favorite MP3 tunes.

• In-Camera Retouching and Red-Eye Reduction
The DSC-H3 has a range of in-camera editing effects available to customize your images. Built in image effects include a soft edge filter to soften backgrounds, a cross filter to place starry "dazzles" at highlight points, a partial color filter to mute surrounding colors and a fish-eye filter to create interesting results. There is also a built-in red-eye reduction feature that reduces irritating "glowing eyes" that can ruin even the most creative photos.

• Stamina Battery Power
The included rechargeable NP-BG1 Lithium Ion Battery provides sufficient power to capture up to 300 shots on a full charge. That's enough power to cover a long weekend or a whole vacation without needing to recharge.

• Includes Picture Motion Browser Software
The supplied Picture Motion Browser software makes it easy to upload, organize and search photos on your PC, and provides a convenient map view function to sort photos by location and display their origin on a world map by using an optional GPS unit.
