Features
720p AVI Movie Mode
In 720p AVI movie mode the camera shoots 1280 x 720 high definition movies at 30 fps, a
standard format when working with a PC.¹ Users will create high quality movies with full use
of optical zoom in files small enough to transfer to compatible PC or Mac® computer. Once
transferred to your computer and connected to the internet, you can effortlessly upload your
media to popular photo and video-sharing websites such as Photobucket® and YouTube™.
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.
14.1 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD Image Sensor
A powerful 14.1 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 shots.
2.7” (230K dots) Clear Photo™ LCD display
Generous 2.7” (230K dots) Clear Photo™ LCD display
features sharp, natural color that makes it easy to compose shots, read menus, and view photos,
even in bright sunlight.
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; all result in clear
images without leaving auto mode.
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.
Smile Shutter™ technology
Smile Shutter™ technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile
Shutter™ button 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.
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.
Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) 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.
Dynamic Range Optimizer
Dynamic 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.
Picture Effect for more expressive photos
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.
Self-Portrait Timer
Self-Portrait Timer helps take the guesswork out of self portraits by utilizing Face Detection
technology to recognize when your face enters the frame. Once the camera detects your face,
it triggers a 2-second timer, and then snaps a picture.
