Like most of their current Cyber-Shot offerings, the W570 also boasts their Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system, which helps reduce the occurrence of camera shake and image blur in your hand held photos. This function is also available in movie mode. When the camera is powered down, the lens retracts fully inside the body, and is protected by a built-in lens cover. There are no filter threads on this lens.
