Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Perfect Image: A high picture quality 10.2 mega pixel mounted CCD

  • The 10.2 mega pixel 1/2.33” high resolution CCD sensor allows for a high quality picture.
  • Clear picture quality can be achieved even for super size images larger than A2.
  • A robust mounted image processor enables rich gradation, fast and clear high quality picture processing.
    5x Optical Zoom Lens : Equipped with a 5x optical (38-190mm at 35mm) inner zoom lens, F2.8 ~ F4.6
  • 5x optical zoom lens (38-190 mm at 35 mm) supports impressive picture expression.
  • The mounted inner zoom lens allows for a slim design and efficient operation. This results in enhanced usability and portability.
  • Outstanding picture quality is achieved by the multi-coating on both sides of all lenses that effectively prevents chromatic aberration and distortion.

DIS (Digital Image Stabilization) : Fast digital image correction resulting from shaky hands

  • The image is continuously pictured twice so that colour information is extracted from one and shape information is extracted from the other one to present the clear image of natural colour and minimized hand tremble.
  • Hand tremble that can occur in outdoor or indoor shooting is minimized to present the natural colour and clear image (Relatively better quality image in high sensitivity).
  • The moving object is automatically detected to enable shooting of fast moving objects.
  • Low power consumption compared to the mechanical method.

Face Detection function : Face detection optimized for portrait shots

  • Under a backlight condition and when there is a difference in exposure between a subject and its background, a subject’s face is automatically detected, and brightness and focus are automatically adjusted for optimal shots.
  • When a subject is moving within a frame, it is automatically detected and tracked and Auto Exposure (AE) and Auto Focus (AF) are applied accordingly.
  • Up to 9 subjects can be detected at a time to support reliable image composition for portrait and multiple subjects shots.
    Intelligent 230K pixel 2.7” LCD : Great luminosity achieved through automatic adjustment of brightness based on a light condition
  • Brightness is automatically adjusted and corrected to prevent reduced luminosity of the LCD that can occur as result of strong sunlight.
  • Brightness is automatically adjusted to prevent unnecessary battery consumption when pictures are taken in low light conditions and the LCD is clearly visible.
  • Intelligent LCD is a function that adjusts brightness of the LCD automatically based on the surrounding light.

ISO 1600 Support : With Images Noise Reduction function, clear picture quality obtained at high sensitivity

  • The camera can effectively reduce possible noises in super speed sensitivity mode for clear images.
  • ISO 1600 super speed sensitivity enables clear quality pictures to be taken even in low light conditions. (ISO supported: Auto, 50, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600)
  • Super speed sensitivity enables sharply-focused, momentary stop pictures to be taken of moving subjects such as children or people engaged in sports.

Movie Mode: Powerful video recordings with MJPEG VGA resolution

  • Ultra high quality video recording is enabled by support of the 5x optical zoom, VGA resolution at 640 X 480, and 30/15 fps.
  • With Audio (recording time : memory capacity dependent)
  • 5x Optical Zoom, Mute during Zoom Operation
  • Movie Editing (Embedded): Pause during recording, Still Image Capture
    Self Portrait : Accurate exposure and focus for self portrait shots
  • Using the face detection function, a beeping sound notifies users when a face is located in a specific area.
  • This function helps convenient and accurate self portraits.
  • Easier self portrait shooting
  • Recognition of up to 3 faces for shots with friends
  • Beeping sound to deliver clearer information by the camera, moves out of the frame.

Function Description and Photo Help Guide : Instructions on the camera functions for beginner

  • If a problem is encountered during shooting, troubleshooting instructions are provided so that image correction can be easily performed by anybody.
  • Step-by-step instructions on use of the camera are provided through the LCD for user’s convenience.
  • When each camera function is set up, instructions for the corresponding function is provided so that the camera can be operated even by a beginner.
  • Instructions regarding the entire camera functions such as shutter and aperture as well as shooting are available.

Shooting Mode : User-oriented shooting mode from photography to multimedia functions

– M Mode: The shutter speed and aperture can be manually specified by the user for professional image expression.
DIS Mode: A shooting mode intended for low light conditions where digital correction of hand-shake is employed.
– Photo Help Guide Mode: Instructions on the camera functions for beginner

– Scene Mode: Shooting data for 14 different situations are available for a professional shooting experience.
– Video Recording Mode: Ultra high quality video recording at VGA resolution (640 X 480, 30/15 fps).
AEB or Exposure Correction function : Image brightness control are supported by adjustment of the exposure measured by the camera
– When the measured exposure data is not accurate, pictures are taken automatically based on the exposure range specified by the user.
– The function controls the shooting exposure based on the exposure measured by the camera according to user’s selection.

  • AEB: It automatically shoots darker or brighter pictures, according to the exposure standard measured by automatic exposure stage shooting.
  • Exposure correction: Enables darkness and brightness to be controlled in relation to the exposure measured, by using +/- buttons

Auto Macro capability (for up to 5 cm proximity) : Macro shooting for close up shots

  • The camera incorporates an auto macro and micro modifying function which avoids the need to switch to micro-shooting when in macro mode.
  • Auto Macro supports a 5 cm to infinity range in wide mode, and a 50 cm to infinity range in tele mode.
  • The camera can express images of small subjects including flowers and insects by super macro 1 cm shooting.

White Balance Selection: White Balance and User-defined Settings

  • During shooting, actual colour expressions of an image may vary depending on the colour temperature of light sources such as sunlight, fluorescent and tungsten.
  • Based on a light source such as sunlight, fluorescent and tungsten, a predetermined colour temperature is selected for natural expression of images.
  • Natural expression of colours through Auto White Balance (AWB) for automatic adjustment of colour temperature and user-defined WB settings.

Colour Effect function : Various expressions of images through colour adjustments

  • Images can be expressed in various colours through editing of shooting and playback settings.
