Manufacturer's Description

Manufacturer's description
If you're looking for serious optical performance in a compact camera, the Cyber-shot H55 could be the one for you. Smart features like Sweep Panorama for stunning extra-wide shots and Face Detection and Smile Shutter for perfect portraits put fuss-free shooting at your fingertips. A massive 14.1 megapixel sensor combines with the premium Sony G lens with 10x optical zoom and 25mm wide angle to offer you the chance to capture almost any moment, from spectacular landscapes and group shots, to dramatic close-ups. Switch to movies and Active Mode will ensure that all your precious memories play back in the sharp and clear detail of 720p HD. As an added extra, the H55 has 45MB of internal memory and slots for both Memory Stick PRO Duo™ and SD/SDHC cards.


Capture the perfect panorama,
just press and sweep. View larger

Perfect panoramas, self-portraits you'll love
Seen an amazing view, a great group shot, an expansive landscape? Select Sweep Panorama, press the shutter and sweep the camera across the scene. This new shooting mode takes more than 30 images at 10 frames per second, then stitches the shots together to create the ultimate seamless horizontal or vertical panorama in an instant. How many times have you pressed delete on a self-portrait? Choose Self-portrait mode and the H55 will wait for the perfect composition while you hold the camera at arm's length, then fire the shutter when you're perfectly framed.

Powerful performance
Gorgeous images are in easy reach with the H55, thanks to a range of high performance imaging technology. The professional-quality Sony G 10x optical zoom lens will bring far away subjects even closer, while the 25mm wide angle means you'll get more people and landscape into your pictures. With Optical SteadyShot stabilising the image and a high light sensitivity (up to ISO 3200), you won't need to worry about hand movement blurring your pictures. Quick responsive shooting and clear, detailed images are delivered by the CCD sensor working with the BIONZ processor, so you can make the most of the camera's impressive 14.1 megapixel resolution. At this size you'll be able to make a quality poster print at up to A3, or crop the image without losing any of its crisp detail.


The 14.1 megapixel resolution means
you can enlarge your photos to A3
without loosing any detail. View larger

Your home movies in beautiful HD
The H55 isn't just about taking great still pictures. Turn the dial to movies and you're ready to record in 720p HD at 30 frames per second. Optical SteadyShot Active Mode offers up to 10x more shake correction so you'll enjoy the clearest, steadiest handheld clips yet - even while you're walking along. Great quality sound is taken care of, thanks to the stereo microphone. Want to watch your movies on the big screen? HD output lets you view your videos and photos on HD TV, with the use of an optional cable. Add effects and music with HD slideshow, and create a really fun display.

On the big screen
Flip the H55 round and you'll find a large 3" Clear Photo LCD screen. High contrast and clear details make it easy to frame your shots, choose menus and check out your photos, even in bright conditions. It's big enough to be viewed by more than one person, so you can relive the moment there and then.

Choosing the right settings
The H55 is equipped with a number of smart features to take the guesswork out of matching your camera settings to your chosen subject. Select Intelligent Auto mode and the camera will automatically recognise eight commonly encountered scenes and adjust settings to ensure well-exposed results wherever and whenever you shoot.

Seen a great shot but high contrasts are causing washed-out backgrounds and detail lost in shadow? Just switch to Backlight Correction HDR and the H55 will take two images at different exposure settings, then combine the best elements of each into one natural-looking image.
