The Red Color Reproduction of Advanced Underwater Mode compensates for the red color which is easily lost in underwater shooting to look underwater picture more natural. Sports, Snow and Beach & Surf Mode can also be selected easily and quickly from the menu.

The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) compensates for the blurring caused by hand-shake. Even slight hand-shake movement is accurately detected by a sampling frequency of 4,000 times per second, and compensated to produce sharp, clear images.

Leave the camera to record of stationary observation for subjects such as flowers coming into bloom or scudding cloud. The series of consequent images can be combined in a camera to produce a time lapse video.

You can record dynamic HD videos in 1280 x 720p* in MP4 format. Recording videos can be started with a press of an independent motion picture button, which is convenient for you to switch photo / video shooting instantly.
