The cutting-edge “BIONZ” Imaging Processor, first introduced on the Sony α (alpha) D-SLR, is used in Cyber-shot cameras. “BIONZ” takes advantage of Sony’s accumulated imaging technology to digitally process the high-resolution image data from the CCD sensor* at high speeds and deliver dynamically clear, high-resolution images with natural colour reproduction and minimal noise. Advanced capabilities of “BIONZ” allow it to support unique technology such as Face Detection and DRO (Dynamic Range Optimiser).
Moreover, “BIONZ” is now even more advanced through continuous evolution in higher image quality and processing speed. It further improves the speed and precision of various performance-enhancing camera features including noise reduction during high-sensitivity shooting, AF/AE/AWB (the 3As), dynamic range expansion in backlit conditions, and faithful colour reproduction. The result is an unprecedented level of precision and innovation in compact digital cameras.
