Manufacturer’s Description

The DSC-P8 Cyber-shot Digital Still Camera combines exceptional image quality with compact design, delivering 3.2 megapixel effective resolution with a 3X optical lens and intelligent features, like 3 area multi-point AF for sharply-focused shots even in low light conditions and Sony's AF Illuminator that briefly illuminates the subject for an accurate focus lock. The multi-burst function captures 16 320x240 frames with 3 selectable intervals for convenient motion analysis. Versatile MPEG movie modes are highlighted with MPEG VX mode, which captures VGA (640 x 480) high frame rate (16 frames per second) audio/video clips with length limited only by the capacity of the media. You can even edit in MPEG clips in the camera with 6X cue/review & divide/delete. Add to that a lightning-fast USB 2.0 interface, and this is a camera that will keep up with you and with technology for a long time to come.
