The DSC-S75 gives the user the ultimate in control and performance. With an outstanding combination of optical quality in the Carl Zeiss "Vario Sonnar" lens and resolution, with a phenomenal 3.34 mega-pixel imager, this is Sony's first camera ever to have a 14 BIT DXP A/D converter for more life like digital photography. The DSC-S75 is a photo enthusiast's dream with extensive manual controls.The DSC-S75 uses the proprietary Sony Memory Stick technology for image storage. An 8MB Memory Stick is supplied with the camera and additional media are available up to 64MB. Individual images can be write-protected from accidental erasure (except through card reformatting) via the Protect option under the Playback settings menu. Individual write-protection also prevents the image from being changed in any way, such as rotating or resizing. The entire Memory Stick can be write-protected by sliding the lock switch on the stick into the locked position, which also guards against the entire stick being formatted.The S75's LCD monitor reports the current number of images captured, how many additional images can be stored (based on current image resolution and quality settings), and displays a small graphic to let you know approximately how much space is left on the Memory Stick. (In Movie mode, the camera reports the available recording time.) Through the Playback settings menu, you can designate whether the camera numbers each image sequentially (from one Memory Stick to the next), or restarts file numbering with each new Memory Stick. The Playback menu also offers a Resize option, as well as Copy and Rotate tools. The camera's Digital Print Option Format (DPOF) compatibility allows you to mark specific images for printing. Through the Setup menu, you can decide whether or not to print the date and/or time on the image as well. Image Size options include 2, 048 x 1, 536, 2, 048 x 1, 536 (3: 2 ratio), 1, 600 x 1, 200, 1, 280 x 960, 640 x 480, and 320 x 240 pixels (E-Mail recording option). Movie file sizes are 320 (HQ), 320 x 240, and 160 x 112 pixels for MPEG Movies, or 160 x 120 and 80 x 72 pixels for Clip Motion files. In addition to the uncompressed TIFF file format, the S75 offers both Fine and Standard JPEG compression levels, and a GIF option for Text and Clip Motion recording modes.
