MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer)

MEGA O.I.S. automatically compensates for blurring caused by hand-shake. Even slight hand-shake movement is detected instantly by a sampling frequency of 4,000 times per second to produce sharp, clear images.

MP4 HD Video Recording

Recording dynamic MP4 HD video in 1280 x 720p* starts with the simple push of an independent motion picture button. And you can switch from video to photo shooting and back again instantly.

Time Lapse Shooting

Position the camera to record stationary observation for flowers coming into bloom, scudding clouds and other subjects. A series of successive images can be combined in-camera to produce time- lapse video.

Torch Light

Torch light helps record beautiful videos even in dusky underwater environments or in camp at night. And even when camera functions are inactive, you can turn the light on to illuminate subjects.

220MB Built-in Memory

When the camera's SD card is full, built-in memory automatically provides 220MB of additional storage. Enough for up to 34 images.
