Slender style: boasts a slim 20.8 mm body available in a wide range of vivid colors (some with line art) for vibrant take-anywhere style.

16 MP CCD image sensor: for outstandingly detailed images, creative cropping and stunningly-sharp poster-size enlargements.

Motion blur reduction: reduces the effect of camera shake to compensate for camera and subject movement. High ISO (up to 3200) light sensitivity reduces the risk of blurred images caused by fast-moving subjects or low light and Best Shot Selector (BSS) automatically selects the sharpest of up to 10 sequential shots.

Smart portrait system: snap perfect portraits every time. Smile timer takes the shot when your subject smiles, Blink proof alerts you when someone’s eyes were closed, Skin softening adjusts uneven skin tones for smoother-looking skin, and In-camera Red-eye Fix corrects false eye color due to the flash as you take the shot. Choose from eight Glamour retouch options to make portraits more flattering.

Scene Auto Selector selects the optimum Scene mode for your situation, so all you have to do is point and shoot.

Li-Ion battery: rechargeable for longer use and eco-friendliness.
