The Cyber-shot P200 pocket digital still camera is encased within a slim metal body. Extremely high-resolution images are within your grasp because of the 7.2 effective megapixel Super HAD CCD and 3x optical zoom lens Guaranteed to provide quality and reliability, the Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens extends out from the body of the camera when required, keeping the lines elegant and the body slim. The higher resolution means that your images will print larger and will carry finer detail, while the 7.2 effective megapixel CCD also extends Sony Smart Zoom capability.
You can keep shooting as long as you need, because Sony's Stamina technology means the Cyber-shot DSC-P200 can shoot up to 370 high quality images on one charge of the InfoLithium battery. Lending a hand is the unique Sony Real Imaging Processor, helping to make the Cyber-shot P200 highly energy efficient as well as speeding the camera operation. You're sure never to miss a shot due to shutter lag!
The back of the Cyber-shot P200 presents another surprise. A large 2.0-inch LCD can be used to playback your pictures and adjust the camera settings. Bigger than you would expect for a pocket camera of these dimensions, the LCD is protected from harm and enhanced by a clear polycarbonate panel. As it is, the LCD keeps to the slim lines of the camera by being set flush into the metal body. Animated and enlarged icons make choosing functions simpler and it's easier to read the menu or select from any of the camera's exposure settings and nine Scene Selection modes.
Fully automatic for ease of use or manual exposure for the more advanced approach, these features allow you to be as creative as you want. The scene selection modes ensure that you'll always get an ideal picture in any of nine common situations including fireworks displays, beach activities, or fast fun and games in the snow.
