Click to take a QTVR tour of the S700
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 is an entry-level model featuring 7.2-megapixels of resolution
and a Sony 3x optical zoom lens. The camera fits comfortably in your hand and has a large,
2.4-inch TFT LCD screen for easy viewing and image sharing.
This new model features blur-reduction technologies (ISO) and substantial internal memory
(24MB) for shooting without a media card. Storage capacities can be expanded further
with optional 4GB Memory Stick Duo ™ or Memory Stick PRO Duo™ flash media cards.
High sensitivity mode is also available on the S700, which helps to reduce the chances of
taking blurry photos, especially in low light situations. With settings up to ISO1000, you
can shoot at higher shutter speeds to capture the candles on a birthday cake or the city
lights without using a flash.
The compact S700 is ready to capture pictures whenever the moment strikes. Powered by Sony's
Real Imaging Processor circuit, this Cyber-shot model boasts a quick start-up, fast shot-to-
shot times, and long battery life -- up to 460 shots per charge using rechargeable NiMH
For those moments when a simple still picture does not capture the entire mood, the S700 also
captures GVGA (320x240) resolution .AVI format Motion JPEG video at 30 frames, with audio.
A function guide and resolution guide is also standard. When menu icons are selected, a simple
text explanation is displayed on the LCD screen. This function guide is readily-accessible
through a convenient mode dial. The resolution guide is helpful when deciding on the best
resolution for prints. When you select the resolution in the menu, a pop-up screen provides
the ideal print size for that particular setting.
The camera's image resolution is ideal for making high-quality prints. Simply connect the
model to a Sony DPP-FP50 digital photo printer and print from the convenience of your own
home. You can even create postcards or calendars using the printer's supplied software.
