The great little camera with the great big screen just got better with the DSC-T33 Cyber-shot digital camera from Sony. Improving on the DSC-T1's already innovative design, the DSC-T33 features a 5.1-megapixel image capture, a non-extending Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with in-camera lens cover, and a body only 3/4 of an inch thick. Best of all is the 2.5-inch hybrid LCD monitor with new Clear Photo LCD which provides higher resolution, contrast, and brightness for improved viewing even in open sunlight.
The T33 includes many of the high-end features you would expect in a larger camera, such as a 3x optical zoom lens, Sony's Real Imaging Processor LSI for fast shutter speeds, and increased contrast range with the 14-bit DXP A/D conversion processor. When combined with a Memory Stick PRO Duo media the DSC-T33 can even capture 640 x 480 resolution video at 30 frames per second in its MPEG VX Fine mode.
- 1/2.4-inch 5.1 Megapixel Effective 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.
- Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens
The Vario-Tessar lens is specially produced for compact cameras and provides rapid auto focus with appealing zoom range. Utilizing a highly transmissive optical grade prism, the lens is housed entirely inside the camera body, and does not need to extend for use.
- Compact Slim Body
The ultra-compact and thin size (17.3 millimeters) of the DSC-T33 makes it the perfect camera to tuck in a pocket or purse for high-quality, high resolution photos almost anywhere.
- Real Imaging Processor
The innovative Real Imaging Processor in the DSC-T33 not only improves picture quality and clarity but also improves camera response time, decreases shutter lag, and improves battery stamina.
- 3x Optical/2x Digital/6x Total Zoom
3x Optical Zoom helps you frame your shots for better digital pictures. And Sony's Precision Digital Zoom provides an additional 2x magnification without the jagged edges of other designs, resulting in smoother images.
- 0 to 4x Smart Zoom Feature (Up to 12X 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.
- 14-Bit DXP A/D Conversion
Sony's 14-bit Digital EXtended Processor captures the range between highlight and shadow with up to 16,384 values, for extended dynamic contrast and detail.
- 2.5-Inch Hybrid LCD Monitor
The enormous 2.5-inch LCD provides a high resolution view while shooting, with transmissive/reflective Hybrid design for extraordinary brightness in direct sunlight and large, easy-to-read menus. Unique in such a compact camera, this large screen makes it easy to share image playback with friends.
- Clear Photo LCD
The DSC-T33 includes the new Clear Photo LCD which provides higher resolution, contrast ratio and brightness. Images in the LCD will have up to a 40% improvement in color reproduction.
- Magnifying Glass Mode
With its extraordinarily close focusing capability (1 centimeter) and oversized LCD, the DSC-T33's Magnifying Glass mode can display images at over 3x actual size. This powerful capability opens up new possibilities in Macro photography.
- 5 Area Multi-Point Auto Focus
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 (Auto Focus) Illuminator
Briefly illuminating the subject, in low or no-light conditions, the AF Illuminator helps establish a positive focus lock.
- Continuous Auto Focus
To maintain accurate focus lock with fast moving subjects, Continuous AF keeps focusing from the time the camera is turned on until the moment of exposure, providing properly focused images even when your subject is moving.
- Memory Stick Duo Media
Digital. Powerful. Transportable. Memory Stick Duo media is compact, portable, and rugged--connecting a variety of hardware and software applications.
- Scene Selection Mode
With 9 Scene Modes, parameters can be matched to the shooting conditions. Choose from one of the following: Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Landscape, Snow, Beach, High Speed Shutter, Fireworks, Magnifying Glass, and Candle.
- Multi-Burst Mode
Captures 16 consecutive 320 x 240 frames as part of a single 1280 x 960 image which plays back sequentially in the camera or as a single image on your computer. Selectable 1/7.5, 1/15, 1/30 second frame intervals provide convenient motion analysis.
- MPEG Movie VX Fine Modes
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.
- 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.
- Rechargeable InfoLithium Battery
Provides reliable, long-lasting power for continuous shooting, without memory effect. The supplied AC-LM5 adapter/charger provides stable power for USB transfer.
- Cyber-shot Station Supplied
Placing the DSC-T33 on the supplied Cyber-shot Station provides a quick and easy connection between the camera and a TV for easy viewing, or a USB supported computer for MPEG video and still image transfer. It also supplies power to the camera for charging the battery.
