Sony DSC-F828 Cyber-shot


Sony DSC-F828 Cyber-shot

Category: Advanced Amateur - Prosumer

The Sony DSC-F828 Cyber-shot continues the lens-centric tradition of its prosumer digital cameras. The F828 is built around a Carl Zeiss T* 7x wide-angle optical zoom (28-200 mm). At the front of the lens is a ring that provides real mechanical manual zoom/focus that should please many enthusiasts. Answering to popular demand, Sony has equipped the F828 with dual memory slots: it accepts MemoryStick and MemoryStick PRO cards, plus CompactFlash I and II, including MicroDrive.

The F828 has 8 megapixels resolution and retains a 2/3 in. size image sensor, but the latter is Sony's recently announced four-color filter CCD technology. The body is magnesium alloy black, and is slightly larger and heavier than the F717 it replaces.

It retains a maximum aperture of F2.0, macro at 2 cm (0.8 in.), and Hologram AF Illuminator (plus, NightShot and NightFraming). The lens still swivels upward and downward to permit more convenient shooting angles. Shutter speeds range from 30-1/3,200 sec.

With the introduction of the 28mm wide-angle, 7x long zoom, dedicated button for a Quick Review, and the acceptance of CompactFlash cards, Sony has effectively answered all of its fans' wishes.

The Sony F828 should appeal to advanced amateur photographers and continue to lead at the top of the Prosumer category.
