Product Specifications

Sony's DSC-P92 Cyber-shot compact digital still camera hands you the power to take great pictures under a variety of conditions. 5.0 Megapixel resolution provides large crisp, clear images every time. In addition to the 3x Optical Zoom, a 12x Zoom at VGA resolution is possible. This Smart Zoom option intelligently uses the full resolution of the camera's imager at lower resolution settings to zoom into the portion of interest by cropping the image size. MPEG VX movie mode lets you capture VGA resolution video with audio at 16 frames per second up to the capacity of the Memory Stick media that is used, perfect for TV playback. Rechargeable NiMH AA batteries with enhanced charge capacity and a charger are also included. Get the photo right the first time with a Sony DSC-P92 Cyber-shot compact digital still camera.
