Sony has launched an 8 megapixel camera that the company claims turns digital into true photography. The Cyber-shot DSC-F828, which features a 4-colour filter that reproduces colours closer to those perceived by the human eye, offers an 8 megapixel resolution for digital reproduction and is the first digital still camera from Sony to feature the Carl Zeiss T lens system. With the combination of technology such as 4-colour filter charge coupled device (CCD), Real Imaging Processor, Carl Zeiss T Lens and 8 effective megapixel resolution plus the high data transfer rate of Memory Stick PRO, the digital photographer would see a giant leap in picture quality, image handling and shooting speed, Sony said. It has also incorporated the latest in CCD technology, a Super HAD CCD with a 4-colour filter. In another move towards true photographic quality, the CCD has a resolution of 8 million effective pixels, capable of a maximum recording size of 3264 x 2448 pixels. The Vario-Sonnar T Lens featured on the Cyber-shot DSC-F828 is a wide angle to telephoto zoom lens with an equivalent 35mm focal length of 28mm-200mm. With a 7-iris diaphragm giving a maximum aperture of F2.0 at wide angle and F2.8 when set at telephoto, the lens on the DSC-F828 is among the brightest in the digital market. The rotating lens offers a 7x Optical Zoom with a Macro auto focus range of 20mm to 600mm and has a fully adjustable double ring for setting manual focus and zoom.
