|5x Optical Zoom|
For convenience and coverage when capturing those unforgettable moments, this retractable 26 - 130 mm f/3.5-4.8 Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar zoom lens is hard to beat. 5x optical magnification covers the most commonly used focal lengths, from wide-angle for taking in the whole scene to medium telephoto for flattering portraits. In addition, a close-focus distance of only 3 cm lets you effortlessly capture life's little treasures in beautiful photos and movies!
|10x Clear Image Zoom and 20x Digital Zoom|
Sony's original By Pixel Super Resolution technology assists Cyber-shot in zooming up to 10x* without decreasing pixel count, giving photos a crisp, high-resolution feel that is nearly identical to optical zoom. Cyber-shot first zooms optically to the maximum optical magnification, then employs By Pixel Super Resolution technology to enlarge the image an additional 2x, producing sharp, clear images despite the increased zoom ratio. And by combining this function with Digital Zoom, up to 20x zoom* can be achieved without sacrificing image quality! Moreover, Cyber-shot's ultra high-sensitivity capability and high-speed AF deliver DSLR-quality images even in dimly lit settings.
