The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 is an excellent, very compact performing digital Camera. The 7.2 megapixel sensor, 3x Optical zoom, nice 2.5 inch LCD, and "Stamina" battery life produces good images and excellent battery life. About the size of a deck of cards, it's easily pocketable and still performs well indoors. A 1/2.5 inch Super HAD CCD has an effective resolution of 7.2 megapixels (3072x2304 pixels). You can also capture images at 3:2, 5M, 3M, 2M, 2M, VGA, and 16:9. Two quality settings (Fine and Standard) vary the JPEG compression rates. A small optical viewfinder is also available if you're in a pinch and can't see the LCD (or are saving battery juice). With the Sony W70, you can shoot in full Auto, Program Auto, Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Soft Snap, Landscape, Beach, Snow, High Sensitivity, and Movie modes. The W70 features a 5 point auto focus (or center auto focus). You can focus on subjects as close as 19.7 inches in Normal mode and 0.72 inches in Macro mode. The W70 has 58MB of internal memory and an additional slot that accepts Memory Stick Duo or Memory Stick Pro Duo memory. The formats used by the w70 are JPEG for still images and MPEG1 compliant movies (with monaural sound). A "multiconnector" plugs into the camera with USB (2.0) jacks and AV jacks on the other end of the cable. An additional jack works with the optional AC adapter to provide power for the camera. All in all it is an excellent buy when it comes to getting quality pictures and great battery life. The camera is available for prices close to $300.
