Back-illuminated 16-MP CMOS sensor: this highly sensitive image sensor increases the light each pixel receives to deliver clear images in any light.
19 Scene Modes: capture great photos just by selecting the mode that matches your shooting situation. Or shoot in Easy Auto Mode and let Scene Auto Selector choose the optimum scene mode for you.
Easy Auto Mode with Intelligent AF Control System: the camera automatically selects the best focus method for sharp results whatever your subject is, and wherever it’s positioned in the frame.
Full HD (1080p) movie recording: record the action in stereo sound. A video-button makes it easy to start.

Retouch menu: enhance your photos in-camera with a range of filters and effects. Includes options such as Selective Color, which converts your image to monochrome and adds a splash of color according to your choice, and Cross Screen, which lends a starry effect to bright objects.
Macro mode: take great close-ups in macro mode. Focuses from infinity to as close as 1 cm.
Easy Panorama 360°/180°: move the camera vertically or horizontally to create dynamic panoramas.
3D shooting mode: create a 3D image that can be played back on 3D-capable TVs and computers.
