Get Up Close with a 24x Optical Zoom and 800x Digital Zoom
The optical zoom feature acts like a telescope to produce close-up shots with extraordinary clarity so you won't miss a single detail. It also offers variable zoom speeds, so you can adjust your zoom speed from wide angle to full telephoto. In addition, the digital zoom ratio can be increased up to an extraordinary 800x. Now that's close up!.
Simultaneous Motion Video & Still Picture Recording (VGA)
Now you can snap off a still shot (VGA) while recording video without having to change recording modes. The video is recorded onto the Mini DV tape and the still image is recorded onto the SD Memory Card. This 2-in-1 capability means you can catch sudden photo opportunities without interrupting a great moving picture scene.
Soft Skin Mode Helps Soften Blemishes and Lines
This feature detects skin tones and softens the focus in that area of the picture. It helps make blemishes and lines appear less noticeable, while preserving resolution in areas of the picture outside the skin.
One-Touch Navigation and Joystick Control
The joystick makes the camera much easier to use, letting you control all basic operations with one hand. As you shoot, just watch the image in the monitor and follow the instruction guide. You can handle a number of operations quickly and easily, without even taking your eye off the subject.
1.3 Second Quick Start
The Quick Start button helps shoot video on the spur of the moment. While saving battery power, this function lets you capture these moments in a mere 1.3 seconds after pressing the button.
