Specs: Details: Description:
Warranty Terms – Parts 1 year limited
Warranty Terms – Labor 1 year limited
Height 2.9 inches
Width 4.6 inches
Depth 2.6 inches
Weight 1.2 pounds
Megapixels (Effective) 12.8 (3:2 aspect ratio), 13.1 (4:3 aspect ratio) A camera’s image sensor resolution measured in millions of tiny dots (pixels). Effective megapixels — the number of megapixels actually used to capture the image — is typically slightly lower than the number of total available megapixels.
Megapixels (Total) 15.0
Image Resolution Up to 4160 x 3120 The clarity of a digital image, determined by multiplying the number of pixels wide by the number of pixels high (e.g., 640 x 480).
Optical Zoom 5x This is your lens’ true zoom capability. The lens does the work by reducing or enlarging the field of view. The greater the optical zoom, the closer you can get to the subject you are shooting.
Digital Zoom 4x This is not true zoom, it is merely simulating zoom by enlarging the existing image’s pixels by cropping. The actual length of the lens does not change. Digital zooming results in reduced image quality, and should generally be avoided or turned off on your camera altogether. Optical zoom is recommended to ensure crisp, detailed photos.
Lens Features Wide-angle lens with dual control rings and 9-blade aperture
Lens Focal Length(s) 35mm equivalent 24 – 120mm The distance (in millimeters) from a camera’s image sensor to its lens, usually given in terms of the 35mm (film camera) equivalent. Cameras with optical zoom have a range of focal lengths, while cameras without optical zoom have a fixed focal length.
LCD Screen Size 3″ Size of the LCD screen, in inches, measured diagonally from corner to corner.
LCD Screen Features Capacitive touch-panel LCD with tilting design
Viewfinder LCD only Provides the photographer with an approximation of what the lens is seeing. In addition to a conventional optical viewfinder, most digital cameras also provide a color LCD panel.
Image Stabilization Yes, optical Digitally compensates for camcorder shake so videos appear steady.
Face Detection Yes
Burst Mode Yes Also referred to as continuous shooting, burst mode captures multiple shots in rapid succession with a single click of the shutter. This is a useful feature when shooting subjects in motion.
Panorama Mode No
Image Stitching No
Internal Memory None Memory that is built into a digital camera for storing images.
Compatible Memory Formats Secure Digital (SD)|Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC)|Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC) Number of images that can be stored on a digital camera’s built-in memory and/or included removable memory cards. This number varies depending on the resolution of each image. The higher the resolution of the image, the more storage space it takes up.
Shutter Speeds 1 – 1/4000 sec.; 15 – 1/4000 sec. (in Tv mode); 60 – 1/4000 sec. (in M mode) The rate (typically measured in fractions of a second) at which a camera shutter opens and closes to capture an image. Slow shutter speeds are used for low-light conditions, while faster speeds are best for action shots.
Aperture Range f/2 – f/3.9 The range, expressed in f-stop numbers, from a camera’s largest lens opening setting to its smallest. The greater this range, the more manual control and creative license available to the photographer in regard to light and focus.
White Balance Auto, daylight, shade, cloudy, tungsten, fluorescent, fluorescent H, flash, underwater, custom Settings that assess and compensate for color conditions in any given lighting to ensure true-to-life color. Most digital cameras feature automatic white balance settings as well as the option to manually override such settings.
Flash Range 1.6′ – 22′ (wide); 4.6′ – 11′ (telephoto) Distance over which a flash will adequately light a subject.
Flash Modes Auto, on, slow synchro, off Flash settings. Common modes include Auto (camera decides when the flash is needed), Red-Eye Reduction (minimizes eye reflections) and Fill (reduces deep shadows in bright sunlight).
Focus Range 2″ – infinity (wide), 1.3′ – infinity (telephoto); Macro: 2″ – 1.6′ (wide) Distance over which the camera is capable of focusing on the subject.
Movie Mode Yes Captures short, low-resolution video clips, sometimes with sound.
ISO Equivalent Auto, 100 – 12,800 Measurement of a digital camera’s light sensitivity, which is equivalent to a conventional camera’s film speed. The higher the ISO, the clearer the image in low-light conditions.
Camera Dock Not included
File Formats JPEG, RAW, MP4, DPOF
Image Storage Capacity Varies Number of images that can be stored on a digital camera’s built-in memory and/or included removable memory cards. This number varies depending on the resolution of each image. The higher the resolution of the image, the more storage space it takes up.
Imaging Sensor Type CMOS Type of element used to convert light into a digital image. The most common types are CCD (charge-coupled device) and CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor).
Imaging Sensor Size 1.5″ Size of the CCD or CMOS image sensor, usually measured in fractions of an inch (e.g., 1/1.8″ or 2/3″). In general, the larger the sensor, the better the picture quality.
