Super-small, ultra-light, and very sturdy. Incredibly powerful, with 5-megapixel recording and a top resolution of 2592 x 1944. And plentifully loaded with features that make creative shooting easier. With the DSC-P10, Sony has certainly outdone themselves!
Teamed with the DSC-P10's high-resolution capability is a fast-performing, high-quality lens. What do you get out of it? Razor-sharp, brilliantly colorful images of just about everything you shoot ? you'll blink in the brilliant white and turquoise of a tropical beach, shiver at the chilly clarity of a winter day, and gasp at the lifelike, rounded softness of a baby's face. At the highest resolution setting, even 8" x 10" prints look film-quality!
Sony didn't stop there. 3X optical zoom lets you zero in on the details, and Sony's Smart Zoom lets you enjoy extremely enhanced digital zoom (without interpolation) when capturing lower-res photos. With MPEG Movie VX, you can record short movie clips at a resolution of 640 x 480 (more detail than the 320 x 240 movie resolution found on many cameras). Three-Area Multi-Point Autofocus and manual focus settings make it easy to achieve more sophisticated shooting, while the built-in AF illuminator delivers accurate focusing in low light. If you plan to do a lot of printing, Exif Print 2.2 compatibility makes this a great match with an Exif-capable printer ? your prints will retain the color and sharpness of the original file.
It's rare that a camera with this kind of performance can be slipped in a pocket, but the DSC-P10 excels at more than just picture-snapping. Sony knows that when it comes to capturing great photos, portability matters ? if you can't take your camera everywhere, you can't shoot everything! So the astonishingly compact 'P10 is less than 4-1/2" long and less than 1-1/2" deep, and weighs a mere 7 ounces with the included rechargeable batteries and Memory Stick?. Plus, it's encased in a sturdy metallic body. Altogether, it's a perfect take-along cam!
