New Toy – Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H9/B 8.1-Megapixel

I must have been very good this year because Santa brought me the SEC_SON_DSCH9Bony Cyber-  shot DSC-H9/B. This is an 8.1 Megapixel camera with 15x optical zoom and a boatload of other features including

  • Sony 8.0 Megapixel effective CCD image sensor
  • Carl Zeiss 15x Zoom (31-465mm equivalent in 35mm photography)
  • Super SteadyShot Optical Image Stabilization fights motion blur, even during longer exposures at full zoom. EC_SON_DSCH9B_BK
  • MPEG Movie: 640×480 VX Fine w/audio at 30fps (Memory Stick Duo Pro required),
    640×480 VX at 16fps, length limited only by media
  • Auto, Program AE, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual Exposure
  • Exclusive Sony NightShot Infrared Technology
  • Live histogram display in capture and playback
  • 9 Area Multi-point AF; auto or selectable Spot AF point
  • 3.0-inch “flip-up” LCD screen (230,000 pixels) with Auto Brightness
  • ISO Sensitivity: Auto, 80, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200
  • High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 1000) allows you to shoot with great results in low-light conditions
  • Adjustable color contrast and sharpness
  • Sony’s Clear RAW ™ noise reduction technology: Automatically cleans image noise
  • Built-in flash with Auto Fill, Red Eye Reduction and Slow Synchro
  • USB 2.0 high speed Auto-Connect to host computer
  • Powered by NP-BG1 rechargeable Lithium-ion battery
  • 31MB internal memory plus Memory Stick Duo / Duo Pro compatible
  • DPOF and PictBridge direct-print USB compatible

So far I have been pretty impressed with the quality of the camera as well as the picture quality. As I get more familiar with all of the features and operation of the camera I will post my thoughts. 

Thanks Santa!

This is about 40 feet away. I took this from my living room through the dinning room. This is the stove on the far side of the kitchen with only one small light on.
