Features

With slim vertical styling and an enormous 3.5'' widescreen touch-panel LCD that fills the camera back, the black DSC-T200 captures your attention before it even takes a shot. Boasting incredible 8.1 megapixel imaging, a Carl Zeiss® 5X Optical zoom lens and special features like Face Detection and Smile Shutter Mode, the T200 shoots close-up, ultra-crisp pictures like never before. And taking great pictures in low light is a snap with Sony's Double Anti-Blur Solution that delivers sharp color images even with dim lighting. With HD Output, you can also share images in high definition on your Sony BRAVIA® HDTV or other compatible HDTV screen. Also available in deep red and silver.

Sleek, Slim-Line Vertical Design
The ultra-compact DSC-T200 has an elegant look all its own -- in shining silver, matte black or deep red, with vertical styling and a huge 3.5” 1 Widescreen touch-panel LCD that fills up the entire back of the camera and replaces function buttons with elegant on-screen icons.

8.1 MP Super HAD™ CCD
More megapixels give you more detail and definition when you make big prints or crop in tight on your subject. The advanced Sony® Super HAD™ (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.

Carl Zeiss® 5X Optical Zoom Lens Design.
5X Optical zoom brings you even closer to the action, for great action shots, distant landscape views and dramatic portraits. An ingenious Carl Zeiss® lens design uses internal zooming, so even at full zoom the lens doesn’t project beyond the ultra-slim camera body.

The Sony Double Anti-Blur Solution
With Super SteadyShot® optical image stabilization and high sensitivity (ISO 3200), the DSC-T200 compensates for shaky hands, minimizes blur and allows flash-free shooting to preserve the mood -- and Sony Clear RAW™ Noise Reduction reduces the picture noise that can ruin low-light shots.

3.5”1 Widescreen Clear Photo LCD Plus™ Display
The DSC-T200 puts a huge 3.5” 1 Widescreen LCD in the palm of your hand, with Clear Photo LCD Plus™ design that displays photos in superb clarity and natural color -- with AR (anti-reflective) coating for excellent visibility even in bright sunlight.

Touch-Screen Operation
The DSC-T200’s Widescreen touch-panel LCD replaces small buttons with simple on-screen icons and a user-friendly interface that make camera operation faster and simpler. In shooting mode, you can touch any point on screen to focus on the person or object you’ve selected -- and touch and zoom in playback mode to concentrate on your subject.

Simple Icon Setup Controls
To the left and right of the image area on your widescreen display, simple icons allow quick touch-screen operation of essential camera functions. The icons can be switched off to provide a full 16:9 widescreen view of your photos -- and the on-screen Function Guide display helps you learn camera setup operations.

Face Detection-2
Because the face makes the photo, Sony has created Face Detection technology that recognizes up to 8 faces in a photo and automatically controls focus, exposure, color and flash to bring out the best in everyone. Unlike some competitive systems, Sony Face Detection makes skin tones look more natural and reduces red-eye with pre-strobe flash.

Smile Shutter Mode
In Smile Shutter Mode, the DSC-T200 helps you capture more smiles by shooting automatically when your subject laughs, smiles, even grins - only when focus is fixed. You select the person to watch and the expression to catch -- your Cyber-shot® camera’s Face Detection system and intelligent Smile Shutter algorithm do the rest!

HD Output2
Direct HD output2 to your Sony Bravia® HDVT or other compatible HDTV screen lets you view DSC-T200 still photos in spectacular clarity and detail. Optional HD solutions include a Cyber-shot® cradle/charger with component cable output, or component cable directly to your HDTV.

Multi-Resizing Function
The in-camera feature that resizes your photos for any purpose! Standard 4:3 can be resized to widescreen 16:9 and 2 MP for giant-screen HDTV display2 -- and images at 16:9 and larger than VGA resolution can be resized to 4:3 VGA for sharing with friends and family via e-mail (internet connection required). A simple 4-direction touch-screen control also makes it easy to trim photos.

Wide Zoom Display
To use the entire image area of your DSC-T200 Widescreen LCD and compatible HDTV2 screens, Wide Zoom automatically expands standard 4:3 images to 16:9.

HD Slide Show with Music
It’s the high-definition viewing experience that makes photos more entertaining to watch, accompanied by your choice of visual effects and any of four preset musical selections stored in memory or your favorite music downloaded from PC to your camera for use as background music4.

9-Point Auto Focus
Because an off-center subject can make your shot more interesting, the DSC-T200 can measure auto-focus precision at 9 points on your screen -- giving you greater creative freedom to compose your image.

D-Range Optimization
Powered by the exclusive Sony Bionz™ high-speed processing engine, D-Range Optimization preserves image data in bright highlights and reveals more detail in shadows or backlit areas -- for great results even in difficult lighting conditions.

In-Camera Retouching
The DSC-T200 lets you add 8 creative effects to photos after you shoot -- including new “radial blur” effect, “retro” color tint and trimming function along with soft edge filter to soften backgrounds, cross filter to place starry “dazzles” at highlight points, partial color filter to

In-Camera Red-Eye Reduction
Irritating “glowing eyes” can ruin even the most creative photos -- so the DSC-T200 provides in-camera correction at the touch of a button to reduce lingering red-eye effect that other systems might miss.

Enhanced Paint Function
In-camera retouching continues with the ability to “paint” decorative borders, graphic stamps like hearts, stars, arrows and hand drawn words or symbols to add charm and fun to photos you save, print or send via e-mail (internet connection required).

31 MB Internal Memory
The DSC-T200 allows you to capture a limited number of shots in-camera for later transfer to a PC or Memory Stick Pro DUO™ media -- so even if you forget your flash memory card, you can always get the shot.

Memory Stick Duo™ Media ConvenienceMemory Stick Duo™ Media Convenience
A built-in slot accepts optional Memory Stick Duo™ media or Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media -- the compact, high-capacity storage media that make it easily to upload photos to your computer or make lab-quality prints at home on your Sony Picture Station™ digital printer (sold separately).

Up to 25X Smart Zoom® Feature5
The Sony Smart Zoom® feature lets the DSC-T200 crop in close on the central portion of interest in your photo while avoiding the image degradation of other digital zooms.

MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode

Stamina® Battery Power
