A newly designed signal-processing engine makes this compact camera twice as fast as the DiMAGE G500. You can turn the camera on, focus, set the exposure, capture an image, and turn the camera off in 1.5 seconds. It takes less than a second from turning the camera on to being ready to capture a sharp, well-exposed image.
The DiMAGE G400 has the technology to capture the moment. The camera can focus and determine the exposure in approximately 0.2 second and the shutter-release time lag is approximately 0.03 second.
Dressed in an elegant metal case, the DiMAGE G400 is a stylish companion. The G400 can be easily slipped into a pocket or bag and taken wherever you go for business or pleasure. The DiMAGE G400 follows the tried and true design of traditional film cameras. Its form is simply a product of its function.
The lens is designed to minimize flare and off-axis aberrations so that the tonal range and detail in the scene are apparent in the final image. The new signal-processing engine ensures the images captured with the CCD are reproduced as accurately as possible. Advanced amateurs will appreciate the image-making features included in the DiMAGE G400. Color, sharpness, and contrast can be controlled to create the image you want. And the color-balance function allows you to change the relative proportions of the red, green, and blue to shift the overall color of an image.
Dark noise, an ever-present problem in electronic systems, manifests itself by giving a grainy or sandy appearance to images taken with long exposures. DiMAGE G400 combats this with a noise-reduction function, which automatically activates for exposures of 1/2 second or longer.
The DiMAGE G400 is easy to use. The built-in lens cover not only protects the optical zoom, but also turns the camera on and off in one smooth movement. Buttons and controls are ergonomically placed to facilitate operation. And the familiar click of a film-camera shutter sound gives a positive confirmation an image has been captured.
The slim, stylish DiMAGE G400 is a high-performance digital camera. Within its compact body, the DiMAGE G400 has powerful imaging tools and a dual memory-card slot. It makes capturing beautiful 4-megapixel images simple.

I bought this camera back in 2004 for about £160 and has been worth every penny and more, I have never had a camera that takes this good pictures and has lasted this long in my entire life. I often get comments on the high quality of the pictures this takes and quite frankly have seen pictures on other peoples cameras with supposedly "Higher" specs that don't look nearly as good as the ones taken on this camera. The Camera has a 4.0 Megapixel specification with a very impressive 0.7 second startup time enabling you to take pictures almost instantaneously rather than having to wait for the camera to power up, even though it is a small compact ...
