3.0” XtraFine LCD™ display (921K dots)
3.0” (921K dots) XtraFine™ LCD
technology gives you brilliant-quality
still images and movies with easy
focus.
Full HD 1080/60i
Record crystal clear movies at the
highest resolution available with
capabilities for 60i in 1080 AVCHD.³
This provides stunning, fast motion
video with less distortion for playback
on your HD TV.
3D still image and 3D Sweep
Panorama™
Produce awe-inspiring images with 3D
still image and 3D Sweep Panorama™
capabilities.4 Photos will take on a new
dimension of creative capabilities for
viewing the world in a whole new way.
High resolution iSweep Panorama™
mode
With high resolution iSweep
Panorama™ mode just press the shutter,
pan the landscape and let the camera
do the rest. It automatically links
together each frame to produce a high
resolution panoramic image providing
the ability to zoom in on small details.
This model even detects faces and
moving subjects to stitch intelligently
different widths to help avoid subject
distortion.
Background Defocus
DSLR photographs are often beautiful
because they blur the background,
putting the emphasis on the subject.
Now our point-and-shoot cameras can
deliver this signature DSLR benefit. The
system takes two shots, identifies the
background and applies a defocused
background keeping the subject crisp
and clear.
Backlight Correction HDR
Don’t miss a single detail in high
contrast shots. The built in backlight
correction analyzes the image and
automatically adjusts accordingly to
give you a perfectly lit shot. Backlight
Correction HDR helps correct for this by
taking three pictures at different
exposure settings and processing the
best elements of each into a single
image for more natural looking shots.
Superior Auto mode
Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures
and fewer missed shots. The camera
automatically recognizes the correct
scene mode, then quickly shoots and
combines up to six shots to produce
images with greater clarity, optimum
dynamic range using backlight
correction HDR technology and lower
image noise using 6 shots layering
technology. Superior Auto intelligently
detects 33 scenes for still images and
movies, making it easy to get the best
shot.
Digital Zoom
Capturing the right shot at the right
moment has never been so easy.
Digital zoom brings the action up close
to get that perfect shot, every time.
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.
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.
Natural Flash
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.
Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® Lens with
25mm equivalent wide 5x Optical
Zoom
The high-performance Carl Zeiss® VarioTessar® 5x optical zoom lens brings
distant subjects closer for video
recording as well as for outdoor, sports,
and travel photos, and Close Focus
shoots close-ups up to within a ½ ” of
the subject. A wide angle of 25mm
equivalent wide-angle lens allows you
to take wider shots of the scene or
group in crowded spaces.
