- Large 3.0” (230K dots) Clear Photo LCD displayfeatures sharp, natural color

Intelligent Auto Mode
- Unlike traditional auto mode, Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode thinks for you,
recognizing scenes, lighting conditions, faces, and adjusts settings resulting
in clear images, faces with natural skin tone and less blur. Take advantage of
all the technology without leaving Auto mode. Kids on the playground, landscape
shots, a beautiful flower or an indoor birthday party; result in clear images
without leaving auto mode.
- It’s frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and
discover subjects blinked during the photo. The Anti-blink function works to
help counter blinking and squinting. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the
Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less
squinting. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be
displayed after you take the shot.
Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the
way the eye sees them. Natural Flash mode takes a reference shot without flash
and then uses that reference to correct the color, for far more lifelike images
16.1 Megapixel Super HAD CCD Image Sensor
- A powerful 16.1 megapixel 1/2.3” Super HAD CCD image sensor helps you capture
gorgeous images with superb contrast and clarity down to the finest detail. With
14.1 megapixels, you can create stunning, photo-quality prints up to A3+
(13x19”) size, or crop your images and still come away with high resolution
- Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary
landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing
certain attributes. Select models have up to nine effects.
Smile Shutter technology
- Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply select
Smile Shutter and the camera does the rest. You can also select adult and child
priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity. Intelligent
Scene Recognition can now be used together with Smile Shutter mode when the
Intelligent Auto mode is on. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured
with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions
such as twilight and backlighting.
Intelligent Scene Recognition mode
- Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) mode automatically detects seven different
types of scenes and, within just 1/30th of a second, selects the appropriate
camera settings: Backlight, Backlight Portrait, Twilight, Twilight Portrait,
Twilight using a tripod, Portrait, Landscape and macro. iSCN has two modes: Auto
and Advanced. In Auto Mode, the camera takes a single shot using the optimal
settings. In Advanced Mode, the camera takes a photo with the optimal settings
and, if in difficult lighting (low light or back light) immediately takes a
second photo with another optimized setting so you can choose which to keep.
Sweep Panorama mode (up to 360°)
- Reach beyond the traditional wide angle lens, and capture more breathtaking
shots with Sweep Panorama mode. Simply press the shutter button and sweep the
camera in the desired direction and the camera continuously shoots at a high
speed, then seamlessly stitches the images together with automatic position
adjustment to create one stunning panoramic image. Available in wide and up to
360° full circle, the camera can take a variety of panoramic shots. Now
capturing wide landscapes is as easy as press and sweep.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization
- Optical SteadyShot image stabilization uses a built-in gyro sensor to detect
camera shake and automatically shifts the lens to help prevent blur without
sacrificing image quality.
Face Detection technology
- Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts
focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of
family and friends.
Soft Skin mode
- Portrait subjects will love the results. Soft Skin mode recognizes skin tones
and reduces the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles without affecting the rest
of the shot.
Dynamic Range Optimizer
- Standard and PlusDynamic Range Optimizer (DRO) Standard and Plus uses a
sophisticated algorithm to help recover shadows and highlights. The result is
more natural images with clearer details that more closely match what your naked
eye sees. DRO is particularly effective when shooting backlit portraits or any
scene with a dramatic contrast between background and foreground lighting. DRO
Plus allows for even greater optimization by analyzing each region of an image
and performing additional image processing.
