Compact Cameras

Sony Cyber-shot L1 introducedSony believe their new Cyber-shot L series digital still camera is sure to appeal to the more stylish end of the photo market. The Cyber-shot L1 is no pussy cat however; it packs a powerful punch in the shape of a 4.1 effective Megapixel Super HAD CCD and Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3x optical zoom lens, giving superior image quality. Highly compact and durable , the Cyber-shot L1 can serve as a simple point-and-shoot model for capturing that great night out on the town, but it can just as easily be used for shooting more adventurous snaps on the ski-slopes. It has all the speed , versatility and imaging power to get the best pictures whatever the occasion.

Slim figure
The Sony Cyber-shot L1 has been designed to fit in a pocket or handbag with its slim yet robust aluminium metal body . For added protection and a more compact figure, the innovative Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3x optical zoom lens has been specially designed to sit neatly within the camera body and extend only when in the shooting mode.

Full-bodied power
This newest Cyber-shot benefits from the latest technology in the form of Sony's powerful Real Imaging Processor for superior image quality, increased stamina and rapid camera operation. There's also the ability to connect to a PC via USB2.0 or to connect directly to a printer using the PictBridge ** interface. When shooting t here's no need to concern yourself with calculating the best exposure- seven different Scene Selection modes are preset for scenarios like portraits by candle light, occasions such as a trip to the beach or for a romantic scene under a twilight sky. The special technology designed for the 1.5-inch Hybrid LCD screen means that you can display and frame your pictures in any situation, even in high contrast light conditions. Finally, the auto focus features offered by the Cyber-shot L1 mean that getting a pin-sharp picture is a forgone conclusion, so all you really need do is point and shoot.
