Love the variable angle lcd screen, the main reason why I bought the camera. I use it a lot in between changing batteries, so it seems to be energy efficient too.

12.1 Megapixels
12.1 Megapixels with a large 1/1.7" sensor captures enough fine detail for creative cropping and superb quality poster-size prints.

6x optical zoom with optical Image Stabilizer
Optical Image Stabilizer technology counteracts the effect of camera shake. Keep working at slower shutter speeds in low-light conditions. The 6x optical zoom affords framing flexibility with pin-sharp clarity.

2.5" vari-angle LCD screen
A 2.5" vari-angle LCD screen tilts for creative framing and easy sharing.
Wide viewing angle, Night Display and low-reflection coating aid viewing. Screen folds and stores for protection when not in use.

DIGIC III with advanced Noise Reduction
The DIGIC III processor delivers high-speed camera performance, superior colour rendition and cleaner images at high ISO speeds. iSAPS technology uses shooting scene information to optimise camera settings before a shot is taken.

Face Detection AF/AE/FE
Face Detection Technology ensures superb people shots by automatically detecting up to 9 faces within a frame and setting the optimum focus, flash and exposure. Red-Eye Correction in playback keeps eyes looking natural.

Shooting Modes and My Colors
Choose from 21 shooting modes, including a creative zone for manual control. Get the perfect shot, even in tricky lighting conditions. Quickly select options on the Mode Dial like Portrait, Night Snapshot or Kids & Pets. My Colors allows special in-camera colour effects to be applied to images and movies.

Digital Tele-Converter and Safety Zoom
Safety Zoom offers extra zoom magnification without affecting image quality. Just like using a tele-converter attachment, Digital Tele-Converter adds extra reach on every shot.

ISO 1600 and Auto ISO Shift
ISO 1600 combines with optical Image Stabilizer to counteract image blur. A dedicated ISO button allows quick selection of ISO speeds for flash-free results in low-light conditions. When camera shake is predicted, Auto ISO Shift automatically increases ISO to further reduce the risk of blurring.

Smooth VGA movies
Record smooth VGA movies with sound. Choose Long Play VGA mode (30fps) for stronger compression that allows twice as much video to be stored on your memory card.

Accessories
A full range of optional accessories includes wide and tele converter lenses, waterproof case (40m depth) and high-power slave flash.
