    Features in depth

    30x ultra-zoom. 24mm wide lens

    Get closer and capture the full detail of distant subjects with a huge 30x optical zoom, or up to 60x with ZoomPlus. Fit more in the frame with 24mm ultra-wide-angle for great group shots and stunning landscapes. The huge zoom fits neatly into a mini bridge style body that’s so small it’s easy to carry, wherever you go.

    HS System

    HS System excels in low light allowing you to capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or a tripod. A high performance DIGIC 4 processor and high-sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel CMOS image sensor give superior image quality in all situations.

    Intelligent IS

    An optical Image Stabilizer with Intelligent IS automatically combats camera shake to prevent blur giving sharp, detailed photos and videos at full zoom or when shooting handheld in low light.

    Wi-Fi; GPS via mobile

    Wi-Fi lets you connect easily with home wireless networks, compatible printers and PCs, plus portable devices like smartphones and tablets, for fast, online image sharing and backup. Use your smartphone’s GPS to tag images with shooting locations over Wi-Fi.

    Full HD movies

    Easily record Full HD movies (1080p) with stereo sound and optical zoom, with one touch of the Movie Record button. Enhanced Dynamic IS powerfully compensates for movement in movies for smooth results when shooting on the move.

    7.5 cm (3.0") LCD

    A large, high quality LCD screen with wide viewing angle allows for easy framing, effortless menu navigation and pleasurable reviewing and playback. Easy Hints & Tips help you understand your camera and improve your results.

    Smart Auto

    Effortlessly shoot great photos or movies with Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects optimal settings from 32 variables (21 in movies). All you have to do is point and shoot.

    Zoom Framing Assist

    Zoom Framing Assist helps keep track of distant subjects at high zoom in stills and movies. At the press of a button the camera quickly zooms out of the scene - so you can relocate the subject - zooming back the moment the button is released. Auto mode can track a moving face and does all the zooming for you, so all you need to do is take care of the framing.

    Creative Filters & Manual modes

    Get creative and take your photography to the next level with Full Manual control of shutter speed and aperture. Capture beautiful close up detail using 0cm macro mode.
