Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V1 5.0 MP Digital Camera - Silver

The Sony DSC-V1 Digital Still Camera was built for a special class of photographer who wants ultimate control over the picture-taking process, but also wants the option to call upon automatic features to help balance light and exposure. Barely larger than a deck and a half of cards, the Cyber-shot V1 camera offers a 5 Megapixel imager and a Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar Lens with 4x Optical Zoom along with Nightshot and Night Framing features for taking crisp pictures in low or no-light conditions. A Program-Shift Dial allows users to select from a range of available combinations of aperture and shutter settings for control over motion and depth of field while remaining in automatic exposure mode. The High-speed USB 2.0 connection makes downloading your photos faster than ever. Take a look at the DSC-V1… you'll want to take it home today!
