Product Description

Meet your latest pocket-size photography companion – the 20.1-megapixel1 A100. With a chic design and an ultra-compact body, the A100 lets you preserve cherished memories wherever you go. The 5x optical zoom and 10x Dynamic Fine zoom2 put the power of detailed close-ups right at your fingertips. With a host of auto shooting functions to make shooting a breeze, this stylish camera lets you bring out the best in every photo.

From a toddler’s day out at the park to a road trip adventure, keeping your subject the centre of attention has never been easier. Features such as Scene Auto Selector and Target Finding autofocus (AF) work to ensure your subjects are always sharp and accurately captured. The A100 also makes the best of every moment with its 20.1-megapixel1 image sensor, 5x optical zoom and 10x Dynamic Fine zoom2. For events that deserve more than just a photo, record in HD video (720p format) with the simple push of a button.

Add a personal touch to your images, during or after shooting, with 8 special effects and 6 quick effects. The new intuitive Creative slider also gives you precise control over effects adjustment – so you can be sure that every photograph is picture-perfect.

Measuring a mere 19.8mm (depth) with lens fully retracted and weighing approximately 119g (including battery and SD card), the A100 boasts a slim profile that is nifty for captures on the go. With long-lasting battery life that takes up to 250 images, or approximately 65 minutes of HD movie recording, you can count on the A100 to be there at every photo-worthy moment.
