Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
With a digital camera all the pictures you make are stored digitally, which means you can instantly view a picture after you have taken it and take as many pictures as you like, without having to buy new films all the time. It is easy to download the pictures from your camera to your computer, either at home or at the shop and edit them before printing. Once they are on your computer, you can easily share your pics with the rest of the world by putting them on-line, or e-mailing them to friends.

Experience the whole picture
Now it's easy to grab breathtaking wide-screen views of that landscape or city scene. Sweep Panorama mode shoots a high-speed burst of frames as you sweep the camera from side to side (or up and down!). Images are stitched together automatically by the camera to create one amazing panoramic image.

Sensational images, even in low light
Many cameras struggle to produce crisp, clear images in low light. The revolutionary Exmor R™ CMOS sensor boosts sensitivity while reducing image noise for brilliant, detail-packed pictures.

Your own personal photographer
The optional IPT-DS1 Party-shot™ turns Cyber-shot into your own personal photographer, automatically shooting beautifully-framed pictures of everyone in the room - including you.

Pack more into every scene
Dramatic landscapes, architectural shots, interiors and even family scenes can produce disappointing results when a scene gets cut off at the edges. A wide angle lens lets you pack more into the picture without having to stand further back from the subject.

The camera that thinks it’s a camcorder
Left your camcorder behind? Don't worry: now you can capture crisp, clear HD movie clips at an incredible 30 frames per second for smooth, clear action. Watch the results on your BRAVIA television: you'll be amazed by the quality, detail and colour.

Picture quality
Camera type *
There are a number of common types of digital cameras: compact cameras, bridge cameras, mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC) and single lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Bridge cameras 'bridge the gap' between the low-end compact and high-end professional (SLR) cameras. Also MILCs populate this mid-segment by combining the larger sensors and interchangeable lenses of DSLRs with the live-preview viewing system of compact cameras.
Compact camera
Megapixel *
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
10.2 MP
Image sensor size *
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Maximum image resolution *
Resolution is the amount of detail held by an image. The higher the resolution, the better (sharper) the image. The maximum image resolution produces the best image.
4000 x 3000 pixels
Still image resolution(s) *
List of image resolutions that supported by device.
640 x 480,2048 x 1536,3264 x 2448,3648 x 2736,4000 x 3000
Image stabilizer *
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
Image formats supported *
The type of image files that the device can use/display e.g. gif, JPEG (jpg).
Lens system
Optical zoom *
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
4.25 - 21.25 mm
Focus adjustment *
Auto focusing (AF) modes *
Modes on the camera for auto-focusing, including continuous focusing and one shop focusing.
Centre weighted Auto Focus, Continuous Auto Focus, Multi Point Auto Focus, Spot Auto Focus
Light exposure
ISO sensitivity *
A measure of a photographic film's sensitivity to light.
200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200
Flash modes *
Different modes for a camera flash which are manually/automatically activated e.g. auto-flash mode, flash on with red eye reduction.
Auto, Slow synchronization
Video recording *
Recording moving visual images.
Maximum video resolution *
This is the maximum resolution of video images. Resolution is a measure of the degree of detail visible.
1280 x 720 pixels
HD type *
Type of supported High Definition (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).
Motion JPEG frame rate
30 fps

Total number of pixels that display has.
230400 pixels
Ports & interfaces
PictBridge *
PictBridge is an industry standard introduced in 2003 from the Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) for direct printing. It allows images to be printed directly from digital cameras to a printer, without having to connect the camera to a computer using common connectivity like USB or Bluetooth.
White balance *
Technique in photography and image processing, which involves a global adjustment of the intensities of the colors (typically red, green, and blue primary colors). An important goal of this adjustment is to render specific colors – particularly neutral colors including white – correctly.
Auto, Cloudy, Daylight, Flash, Fluorescent, Incandescent

Interface ports to connect pieces of equipment. USB (Universal Serial Bus) has become the most popular wired interface to connect peripherals. USB 2.0 supports speeds up to 480 Mbit/s (USB 1: 12 Mbit/s). The interface FireWire is also known as the IEEE 1394 standard. Enhanced IDE (EIDE)is sometimes referred to as Fast ATA, Fast IDE or ATA-2.
USB 2.0
Aperture range (F-F)
Aperture range of the device's optics, expressed in f-stops.
2.4 - 5.9
Camera shutter speed
Determines the length of time the shutter lets light pass through the lens to the CCD. Shutter speed and aperture together determine exposure.
2 - 1/1600
Focal length (35mm film equivalent)
24 - 120 mm
Digital SLR
The single-lens reflex (SLR) is a type of camera that uses a movable mirror placed between the lens and the film to project the image seen through the lens to a matte focusing screen.
USB 2.0 ports quantity
Number of USB 2.0 ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. USB 2.0 was released in April 2000 (now called "Hi-Speed"), adding higher maximum signaling rate of 480 Mbit/s (effective throughput up to 35 MB/s or 280 Mbit/s), USB 2.0 ports are usually black.
