  • Battery capacity drops with ambient temperature, reducing the number of pictures that can be taken on a single charge.

Outdoor View Setting
The brightness of the LCD monitor can readily be adapted to changes in ambient lighting conditions for ease of viewing and an improved shooting experience. Brightness can be increased by up to two steps to make dark areas of the display easier to see in sunlight, or lowered by up to two steps to reduce glare for night photography.

Underwater Mode
This mode uses white balance optimized for underwater photos, making colors appear more natural by adding reds that tend to get lost in photos taken under water.

5× Optical Zoom,
Starting at 28 mm *
