Sony DSC-H55 Cyber-shot Digital Camera


Offers Outstanding Low-Light Performance, High Speed, Intelligent Sweep Panorama and More

Sony just announced the Cyber-shot DSC-H55 digital still camera, which offers high zoom in a compact design. The H55 camera’s 10x optical zoom Sony G lens with 25mm wide-angle (equivalent) takes better shots from greater distances and of wider landscapes. With a 14.1 megapixel CCD sensor, this camera lets you take panoramic shots in one sweeping motion with Sweep Panorama™ mode. You can also frame and view photos on its three-inch (measured diagonally) Clear Photo™ LCD screen (230,400 pixels).

Featuring 720p movie recording, the H55 model offers Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization to help reduce blur in photos without compromising image quality. It also adds Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode, which lets you shoot smoother movie clips even if you are walking while shooting. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode allows a moveable lens element inside the camera to shift with greater range of motion–10 times the range of the Optical SteadyShot feature at wide end in standard mode–to compensate for camera shake.

  • Smile Shutter™ technology to automatically capture smiles and iAUTO and Easy modes, which make it easy to get the best shot in nearly any lighting situation.
  • Memory card slot compatible with both Memory Stick (PRO Duo™) and class-four and above SD/SDHC formats
