Sony DSC-L1 announcement clippings

Measuring 95 x 44 x 26 mm, the L1 model is powered by Sony's Real Imaging Processor™ circuitry, delivering outstanding shot-to-shot speed, stamina and quick start-up time for catching the action as soon as it happens.

For the first time in the ultra-compact class of digital cameras, the Cyber-shot L1 model delivers a 1.5-inch transflective LCD, making it easier to see what's on the LCD even in bright sunlight.

It also has a new Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® 3X optical zoom lens, setting the stage for picture quality typically delivered by larger, more expensive digital cameras.

"Decades of expertise in miniaturization have enabled us to achieve a balance between fashionable design and such advanced features as the world's smallest mechanical zoom lens," said Greg Young, general manager for digital still camera marketing in Sony Electronics' Personal Mobile and Imaging Division. "But size and features are only half the story. In the L1 camera, we've also created something that's easy to grip and shoot, and takes outstanding pictures."
