About this item

• Shoot, save, search & share up to 500 VGA photos with the 10.1 megapixel Cyber-Shot DSC-N2. Enjoy your photos as slide shows set to music with family & friends on the huge 3.0" LCD screen with touch-screen operation. Featuring Super SteadyShot Optical Image Stabilization & high ISO sensitivity.
• The DSC-N2 captures gorgeous shots without a flash where flash is not permitted or might disrupt the mood. Equipped with precision Carl Zeiss 3X Optical/2X Digital zoom lens & 25 MB Internal Memory, the DSC-N2 is perfect for capturing images without a flash memory card.
• Over 10 million pixels provide incredible high-resolution detail and definition for making big prints and cropping in on your subject. Plus, the advanced Sony 1/1.7" Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.
• Because flash can sometimes change the mood, the DSC-N2 features higher sensitivity (ISO 1600) for excellent low-light shots at higher shutter speed and for capturing images in museums or religious sites where flash may not be permitted.
• The Carl Zeiss 3X Optical/6X Digital Zoom helps the DSC-N2 bring distant subjects closer and lets you frame shots for better composition; Sony's precision 6X Digital Zoom lets you enlarge image areas without jagged edges.
• Some compact digital cameras "wash out" color in brightly lit areas, but the Sony DSC-N2 controls the light level received by its CCD imager to reduce washout and improve color reproduction.
• The huge 3.0" screen makes it easier to read camera menus, compose shots and share results. The Sony Clear Photo LCD Plus Touch Screen design reduces reflection from the LCD surface for excellent visibility outdoors. While the wide-angle viewing lets you entertain a crowd with slide show and pocket album functions.
• The DSC-N2 lets you combine images in Slide Show sequence, adding any of 4 transition effects (simple, nostalgic, stylish or active) plus 4 kinds of background music, or viewing your Slide Show without music. With precision lens design and 3X Optical zoom, you can capture dramatic long-shots and frame images for better composition and the precision Sony 2X Digital zoom function lets you enlarge image areas without jagged edges.
• You can store and share up to 500 photo images at VGA resolution and manage your album photos using simple touchscreen images. Convenient touch-screen operation of many camera functions replaces small, hard-to-read buttons. The DSC-N2 lets you focus on a subject by just touching it on your LCD screen.
• You can capture images in-camera, without using a flash memory card, or use optional Memory Stick Duo media for ultra-compact, high-capacity shooting and recording. In MPEG VX Fine Mode, the DSC-N2 captures VGA (640 x 480) audio/video clips at high frame rate of up to 30 frames per sec. Supplied software makes it easier to upload, organize & search photos on your PC.
