\<br> the easiest way to shoot like a pro \\smart mode\\stop being jealous of the pros with their big cameras, and start taking great shots. A quick tap of smart mode and you re set with various special modes. capture perfect trails of light at night on a busy intersection full of red taillights or instantly capture a high-speed scene with sports capture. let rich tone create extraordinarily surrealistic photos with colours that pop and express your artistic side. just choose the one you want and shoot perfection.\

23mm, 21x zoom\\the whole wide world is yours to capture. use the 23mm wide-angle lens to capture a quaint row of tudor houses or a gushing, mile-wide waterfall-it can handle any sweeping panoramas, even those wider than can been seen with the unaided eye. there\'s also an 21x optical zoom that lets you quickly take stunning close-ups from far away, so you can get sharply rendered images of moving glockenspiel figurines atop a clock tower or of the colourful details of exotic birds in the wildlife park.\<br>\<br> capture brilliance in low-light settings \
