Rich colours, low picture noise, excellent contrast – the SH-21 is all about tremendous picture quality. The ultra-slim design ensures it never looks out of place at more sophisticated occasions and when you want to be sure to capture a one-off event like a wedding, it’s good to know your camera has a 16-Megapixel Backlit CMOS sensor with the high sensitivity to perform in dim-lit interiors. For wide-angle shots, you can call on a high-grade super-wide 24-300mm* lens and there’s a 12.5x optical zoom for razor-sharp close-ups.
When it comes to recording films, the SH-21 goes one better still. It captures 1080p Full HD movies in the best quality available in a pocket-sized camera today**, and Multi-motion Movie IS cuts out camera shake when the user is moving. Even if you know next to nothing about high-end D-SLR-style imaging, the SH-21 makes it all wonderfully easy. Live Guide shows you in real time how fine tuning key settings will make (or break) your picture. Touch Autofocus tracks moving objects you tap on the LCD while Touch Shutter actually takes their picture for you.
