(Note that the D700 has been replaced by the newer DSC-D770)
True SLR with a big optical viewfinder, a huge 2.5-inch color LCD,
5X zoom lens with manual focus and zoom control, variable ISO 100-400,
builtin popup flash or external "clip on" strobes with the hot shoe
mount, 1/2-inch 1.5 million square-pixel progressive scan CCD, JPG or TIF
image capture (1344 x 1024 pixels), ATA Type II memory card (CompactFlash,
SmartMedia or MemoryStick cards in PCMCIA adapter too) and it's powered
by the infamous Sony InfoLITHIUM rechargable battery.
The user controls have been ergonomically placed on the camera but the
light gray color of the body does not mix well with the white lettering
used to mark the buttons. Sony made the newer D770's body a darker gray
color to solve this minor problem. Once you learn what button does what
you really don't need to be reading labels anyway.
Technical detail on the aperture: F2-11 (Wide), F2.4-11 (Tele) in 21 steps.
