New Sony DSC Adds Slideshow Creation

10/05/2005 10:06:00 AM Eastern

San Diego, Calif. — Sony introduced a new digital camera capable of automatically creating multimedia slideshows and displaying them on a 3-inch touch-screen LCD.

The 8-megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-N1 is Sony’s first model to offer an automatic multimedia slideshow creation tool in-camera. When the user presses the shutter, a high resolution image is stored on the memory card or on the camera’s 26MB of internal memory while simultaneously saving a VGA-resolution duplicate to a dedicated portion of the camera’s internal memory. This dedicated space can store up to 500 VGA images.

The N1 will ship in mid-November for an estimated $500.

When played back in slide show mode the camera will automatically add preloaded music and transition effects. The camera sports built-in speakers for audio playback. Users can search through images saved on the camera by the month and the date they were recorded.

Using an included stylus or a finger, users can also “draw” on an image to add text or symbols to the file.

The NI also features a Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar 3x optical zoom lens and VGA resolution video capture at 30 frames per second when using a Memory Stick PRO Duo media card. The camera is also compatible with the optional Cyber-shot Station dock.

The included lithium-ion battery captures up to 270 shots per charge.
