Sony DSC-S70 CyberShot

Click to take a QTVR tour of the S70
Here's the latest CyberShot from Sony, the DSC-S70 features a 1/1.8" 3.34
million pixel SuperHAD CCD imager that yields 2048 x 1536 uncompressed TIFF or finished JPEG still images. For optimum printing there is a 3:2 aspect ratio setting. The DSC-S70 can also capture HQ/QVGA (320x240) motion video with sound at 16 frames per second. Movies can be replayed fullscreen on the big 2-inch TFT color LCD. Great pictures start with a great lens and they don't get any better than a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 3x optical zoom. High-speed scan autofocus with 5 manual focus presets plus macro mode. To further insure the image quality there is a 12-bit A/D conversion, 4-step adjustable sharpness and 4-mode white balance. Exposure control can be any one of seven Program AE modes with Aperture priority (9-step) or Shutter priority (18-step). Images are stored on Sony's Memory Stick media which has recently dropped in price and is now more agressively priced than CompactFlash. Need more flash power? No problem just attach the optional Sony HVL-F1000 accessory TTL flash and plug it into the special sync connector. Battery power is no problem either, this camera is powered by the famous Sony infoLITHIUM rechargeable battery for hours of picture taking per charge. Jump to the DSC-S70 specifications.
On the back we find a 2-inch low-temp polysilicon TFT color LCD with 123,000 pixel resolution. There's also the power on/off switch, LCD on/off, volume control, Program AE mode switch, focus mode, flash mode, display mode and a 4-way jog switch for navigating the onscreen menus. The battery charger/AC power supply plugs into the jack behind that cover down in the bottom right corner.
On top we find the microphone, data LCD (see next frame), the Mode dial and the shutter release. And of course, the usual Sony stickers.
The data LCD display on top allows you to keep track of important camera options and settings without the need to use the color LCD. Battery condition, flash mode, selftimer, white balance (if other than auto), EV compensation, graphical representation of the space remaining on the Memory Stick, image size and image number are displayed.
The only thing on the bottom is a metal tripod socket.
Here's the left and right side views, a little farther down and we'll open up the doors on both sides and show you what's in there.
An exceptionally sharp and fast F2.0 to F8.0 (in 9 steps) Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 3x optical zoom equivalent to a 35mm 34-102mm lens. Focus range is 10 inches to infinity in normal mode and down to 1.6 to 8 inches in the macro mode. The focus is either automatic or manually controllable via presets for 0.5m, 1.0m, 3.0m, 7.0m or infinity.
Using the optional VAD-S70 ($35) lens adaptor you can attach the VCL-MHG07 ($145) 0.7x wideangle conversion lens or the VF-R52K ($30) filter kit that consists of a ND #8 and a clear lens protector.
Across the back of the camera are the majority of the user controls. Left to right we have the Focus button for selecting autofocus, macro or one of the five preset distances. Next to the optical finder is the flash mode button (auto, on, off, redeye). The LCD button turns the color LCD on and off. The PROGRAM button selects the AE mode (automatic, shutter, aperture, panofocus, landscape, twilight, twilight plus). The VOLUME buttons control the speaker output and they also change the aperture and shutter speed values when in those AE modes. The DISPLAY button toggles the onscreen overlay information. The 4-way jog switch pops up the onscreen menus and allows you to navigate them and make selections.
The zoom lens controls are on the top right and below the jog switch is the power button. Located on the top of the camera are the Mode dial and the shutter release.
On the left side of the camera are the I/O ports. On the top is the external flash sync connector for the optional HVL-F1000 ($120) TTL flash. Then we have the high- speed USB port. On the bottom is the combination video and audio output port. The video signal is user-selectable for NTSC or PAL formats. On the side near the top is the speaker for audio playback. Next to that is the diopter adjustment for the optical viewfinder.
On the right side is the combination battery and memory compartment. The storage media is Sony Memory Stick, an 8MB module is supplied. Memory Sticks are now available in 8, 16, 32 and 64MB capacity and 128MB and 256MB size are scheduled in the next year. I recently purchased a 64MB stick for less than $100 so the prices are now less than comparable sized CompactFlash cards. The battery is a Sony "M" series NP-FM50 InfoLITHIUM rechargeable 7.2v "battery with a brain" -- it tells you on the LCD exactly how many minutes of runtime is left. Additional NP-FM50 batteries are available for $60 - it's always a good idea to have a second battery.
The DSC-S70 does not need an external charger. It comes with a combination battery charger and AC power adapter (AC-L10) that plugs into the DC input jack on the back of the camera. For faster charging out of the camera you can purchase the optional AC-VQ800 ($150) external AC charger for the NP-FM50 battery packs.

Record Screens & Menus
Intro & Physical Views
Here's a typical Record mode screen with most all of the overlay data displayed. Left to right: Battery condition and time remaining, flash (redeye mode), macro mode, image size, image number, graphical representation of space left on the memory stick, selftimer on. Across the bottom is the popup menu, see the following frames for menu items.
Record screen when in the Aperture priority mode. Arrow indicates that you change the aperture value. The display is the same in shutter speed priority mode except the arrow points at the shutter speed value.
Pressing the Focus button lets you select Macro mode or one of five preset focus distances: 0.5m, 1.0m, 3.0m, 7.0m or infinity.
Menu options left to right: Selftimer on/off. Effects menu lets you turn on the time and date stamping or choose from one of the four special picture effects shown above.
The File menu lets you Format the memory stick, enable the position sensor (this automatically rotates portrait mode shots during playback), File Number lets you name the files in series or reset whenever a new memory stick is inserted. See the next two frames for Image Size and Record Modes.
Available images sizes in the still picture mode are: 2048x1536, 2048(3:2) is specifically for printing, 1600x1200, 1280x960 and 640x480.
Recording Modes are: TIFF (uncompressed), TEXT mode produces a black & white GIF file (good for black or white board shots or copying text out of a book), VOICE lets you add up to 40 secs of voice annotation to accompany a picture,
EMAIL produces a 320x240 image as well as one in the currently selected size, NORMAL is what you'd use for most average picture taking situations. Shooting in either TIFF or EMAIL modes creates two image files. If you shoot a 2048x1536 TIFF, it occupies 9.5MB but it also creates a 2048x1536 JPG file that consumes another ~1.7MB. Guess you're going to need those big 64MB Memory Sticks afterall huh?
The Camera menu options are: Conversion on or off (used in conjunction with the MHG07 wideangle conversion lens), Digital Zoom on or off, Sharpness values +2 to -2, White Balance (Indoor, Outdoor, Hold, Auto), Flash Level (High, Normal, Low), Exposure values +2 to -2.
Setup menu options: Video Out (NTSC or PAL), Language (English or Japanese), Clock set (time and date), Beep (Shutter, On, Off), LCD Bright (onscreen adjustment of the LCD backlight illumination).
Typical Movie recording screen. Currently displaying high-quality 320x240 mode and set for a recording time of 10 seconds.
Available sizes for recording MPEG movies: 320x240(HQ) high quality, 320x240 standard mode, 160x112 email mode. The 320x240HQ mode clips playback fullscreen on the 2-inch color LCD.
Movies are recording in 5, 10 or 15 second clips. You just press the shutter release to start recording and let it go until it stops and then stores the clip.

Playback Screens & Menus
Typical Playback mode screen with most all of the overlay data displayed. Left to right: Battery condition and time remaining, image size, image number, graphical representation of space left on the memory stick. Across the bottom is the folder name, time and date information.
Selecting Index from the popup menu brings up the thumbnail index mode where you can quickly review the stored images and choose one for fullscreen display or deletion.
While viewing an image fullscreen you can zoom in up to 5x magnification and then scroll around inside of it to check for composition and focus.
The popup menu lets you bring up the Index, move forward or backward through the images, delete images or access the File, Tool or Setup menus (see following frames).
File menu options: Format the memory stick, Rotate images, enable the Slide Show, Print Mark for embedding DPOF printing information, Protect images from accidental deletion.
Tool menu options: Copy the diskette to another diskette. Resize larger images down to smaller sizes.
Sony's new "top of the line" CyberShot DSC-S70 is a more than worthy competitor in the crowded arena of three megapixel cameras. It follows and equals the likes of the Nikon 990 and the Olympus C-3030. Image quality is excellent due to Sony's 12- bit A/D conversion, an uncompressed TIFF mode and of course, the Carl Zeiss lens. This is a small and lightweight camera with loads of high performance features but it's also easy enough for anyone to operate. It's priced about $200 below the competition -- and that includes the battery, charger, AC supply and a USB port that eliminates the need for a card reader. At first I wasn't too keen on the new Memory Stick modules as I figured we didn't need another incompatible flash memory standard. With Sony's manufacturing clout the Memory Stick has been produced in large quantities and has already reached the promised capacity of 64MB. In fact the 64MB MS is cheaper than a comparable 64MB CompactFlash or SmartMedia card, I picked one up for $92.75. Sony promises even bigger MS modules in the next year with capacity up to 256MB. The Memory Stick like the SmartMedia card can be used in a floppy adapter, PCMCIA adpater or card reader so it's very portable. The one thing I have always liked about Sony cameras is that marvelous InfoLITHIUM "smart" battery system. It is undoubtedly the best rechargeable battery available to consumers today and is in use in millions of camcorders and still digital cameras worldwide. The DSC-S70 uses the smaller "M" series NP-FM50 pack which is rated 7.2v at 8.5W and seems to go forever even when using the color LCD and flash a lot. As with all cameras using this battery system, the S70 displays the amount of battery time left in minutes on the LCD screen at all times. You never have to guess when the battery will go dead, you know exactly how long you have left. The user interface of the S70 is the same as that used on the Mavica cameras, all of the settings are accessed through a popup menu across the bottom of the color LCD. A few items such as focus and flash can be changed with a push button but all others must be done with the menu system. It is quite intuitive and using the 4-way jog switch you easily navigate the menu and make your selection by pressing the jog switch inwards. The user controls are well placed, the zoom switch is easily accessed even by those of us that aim with the left eye. The real test is just handing a camera to someone whose never used it before and see how they fare. The vast majority took to the S70 like a duck to water. The color LCD on the S70 is the conventional TFT type, it is not the solar illuminated / reflective type such as the one used on the DSC-F505. Under 95% of the lighting conditions I used the camera in the screen was bright and highly visible. If dealing with direct sunlight however it is about as useless as most
other color LCD screens unless shielded with your hand or turned away from the sunlight. It is protected by a plastic cover that is easy to clean. The refresh rate is realtime, the motion is clear and fluid no matter how fast you pan the camera. For most shooting situations you switch off the LCD and use the optical viewfinder. It is large and bright and has a diopter adjustment to make it useable by even those wearing glasses. Anyone who knows cameras also knows that a great picture starts with a great lens and there just isn't any better optics than Carl Zeiss'. Sony first put a 5x Zeiss Vario-Sonar on last year's DSC-F505 and the images were incredibly sharp and colorful. The DSC-S70 gets a 3x (34-120mm 35mm equivalent) Zeiss Vario-Sonar that is very fast with a maximum aperture of F:2.0-2.5. A faster lens means better low- light shots. The S70 can be used handheld without flash in many lighting conditions that require the use of flash on other cameras. The Zeiss zoom like the Canon zoom extends outward from the body during use and retracts back in when powered down. The zoom mechanism is robust as well as virtually noiseless. I won't get too technical here, the lens exhibits the usual amount of barrel distortion in wideangle and just a little bit of pinchushioning at the extreme telephoto position. No more or less than what is seen on expensive 35mm SLR zoom lenses. The lens mount is threaded for Sony's lens adapter and they have filters and several add-on lenses available for the S70. If you're into sports or action photography then the S70 may not suit your purposes as well as the Nikon 990 or the Olympus C-3030. About the only thing lacking in the S70 is a large RAM buffer for burst mode shots. The image processing of the camera is quite fast and even the highest resolution image can be saved in 3 to 4 seconds but there is no sequential or burst mode available in the S70. The movie recording function is limited to preset time lengths of 5, 10 or 15 seconds maximum. This isn't a replacement for a camcorder but is excellent for recording short, high-quality motion clips with good ambient audio. The 320 x 240 HQ mode produces a 10-sec clip that's about 5MB in size and plays back full screen on the LCD or TV set. Unlike the Olympus C-3030, the S70's zoom lens is functional in the movie mode but you must choose the desired focal length before recording is started. The movie quality is excellent, the color, white balance and focus were on the money 95% of the time even when I just pointed and pressed. The movies are saved as a standard MPEG (MPG) file and easily viewed with the Windows Media Player or any other viewer than handles MPEG format. Often times we want more in the way of flash illumination. The built in flash units are handy but hardly capable of lighting things up much beyond 8 to 10 feet. Built in flash units are also too close to the lens and there is often a problem with "red-eye" when photographing people. Sony has an optional high power HVL-F1000 flash unit that can be easily connected to the S70 thanks to a
dedicated sync port. Unlike the Olympus or Nikon flash units, the HVL-F1000 only costs around $125 so you don't have to take out a second loan just to buy a flash. As I said at the beginning, the S70 comes complete with a high-capacity lithium rechargeable battery, the charger and the AC supply. It is a proprietary battery so do yourself a favor and buy a spare right off the bat. These batteries go a long way on a charge but once they're dead, they're dead and you can't stick any kind of "off the shelf" battery in there. The NP-FM50 batteries are what I would call reasonably priced, going for about $50 a piece. You can charge the battery in-camera or use one of several different and optional external chargers available from Sony. So there you have it. Sony strikes again with an excellent camera that's easy to use, produces vivid and sharp images and comes with everything you need in the base package -- at about $200 less than the competition. It's digital inside and out but "looks and feels" like a regular 35mm camera so even the newbies won't be intimidated by it a bit. It's a little larger than pocket size but still small enough and light enough to be toted on all-day excursions without giving you neck strain. If you don't need the three megapixel image size then check out the less expensive and lower resolution DSC-S50 or DSC-S30 cameras instead.
