"Exmor R" CMOS Sensor
Featuring a back-illuminated design that maximises and efficiently utilises the amount of light received, making it twice as sensitive as conventional CMOS sensor. You can enjoy cleaner and higher definition images with less noise when shooting in dark environment such as night scenes.
Sweep your camera horizontally to create stunning landscape shots, or vertically to capture tall object like building. Photos are taken at 10 frames per second and automatically assembled to create a single breathtaking panoramic picture.
Capture cleaner and sharper images in low light, without flash or tripod. The camera captures six images in a fraction of a second with one press of the shutter, and combines the data from all six to create a single image of extraordinary detail and low noise.
Intelligent Auto Mode
Capture the perfect shot with ease with the Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode. Automatically determining the optimised settings for different scenes, iAuto mode combines the innovative technologies of Intelligent Scene Recognition, Face Detection and Smile shutter to ensure that every shot is perfect, regardless of the shooting environment.
Now you can capture not only amazing pictures, but also brilliant videos. These movie files, which can be handled as easily as still images, can be viewed on a HDTV and are also perfect for sharing with friends by uploading to Internet sharing sites.
Designed to catch the most dazzling smiles from your subjects. This innovative feature captures all your happy moments by automatically taking pictures only when the person is smiling. You can even select adult or child priority and choose the smile detection sensitivity level to capture the desired smile.
With Intelligent Auto Mode on, Smile Shutter can now be used together with the Intelligent Scene Recognition technology. This means you can always capture beautiful smiles even in difficult conditions.
