The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H70 is a lower mid-cost digital camera. The lens of this camera is 25mm wide angle. This lens allows you to take wide shots of the scene or group in crowded spaces. With 10x optical zoom, you can take detailed shots from far away. The HD Movie Mode of this camera shoots 720p video in 1280 x 720 high definition movies at 30 fps. The 16.1 megapixel sensor of this camera will capture images with detail and contrast in prints up to 13x16". The Cyber-shot DSC-H70's three inch LCD touchscreen allows for easy focus selection and photo viewing. This camera's SteadyShot image stabilization feature, common on Sony digital shooters, uses a built-in gyro sensor to detect camera shake and automatically shifts the lens to help prevent blur. The Cyber-shot DSC-H70's Natural Flash mode takes a reference shot without flash and then uses that reference to correct the color, for images that are lifelike. This camera has a Motion Detection feature that adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected in a picture, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces. There are color options available for the Cyber-shot DSC-H70 digital camera.
