Sony's compact line up of Digital Still Cameras that use Memory Stick for image storage

Burst Mode

Allows you to take TWO shots sequentially by memory buffering. Ideal for fast moving subjects

Voice Memo Mode

Lets you record spoken notes with your photographs

Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)

The flat screen on many digital cameras that preview photographs that have already been taken. LCDs utilize two sheets of polarizing material with a liquid crystal solution between them. An electric current passed through the liquid causes the crystals to align so that light cannot pass through them. Each crystal, therefore, is like a shutter, either allowing light to pass through or blocking the light

AF Illuminator

Makes it possible to focus on objects that are normally difficult to focus on in low light situations

Clip Motion

A Sony exclusive new GIF animation feature that lets you create unique, short "videos" using still images. Record a sequence of up to 10 digital images and Clip Motion will automatically play them back like a "video". The Clip Motion file is smaller in memory size than a standard MPEG movie

USB (Universal Serial Bus)

A hardware interface used for connecting keyboards, mouses, joysticks, scanners and printers to your computer. This digital connection allows much higher rates of transfer than serial or parallel ports. By using the latest USB technology, your Compaq Presario computer has hot swap capability. This means every peripheral device to be plugged in and unplugged can be done without turning your computer off
