What are the features and how will they benefit you?

14 megapixel CCD image sensor - lets you capture outstandingly detailed images, crop creatively and produce stunningly-sharp poster-size enlargements.

NIKKOR wide-angle 5x zoom lens - offers outstanding precision and sharp resolution. 26mm wide-angle allows you to fit more in the frame such as groups, tight interior shots, and landscapes. 5x zoom lets you bring distant subjects up close.

Slender style - boasts a pocket-size 18.4 mm body available in a range of vivid colors for vibrant take-anywhere style

2.7 inch LCD screen - anti-reflection coating and brightness adjustment for clear shooting and playback, even in bright sunlight

4x anti-blur - automatically counters blurred images in four different ways. Electronic VR (Vibration Reduction) reduces the effect of camera shake. High ISO (up to 3200) light sensitivity reduces the risk of blurred images with fast-moving subjects or in low-light. Motion detection compensates for camera and subject movement. Best Shot Selector (BSS) automatically selects the sharpest of up to 10 sequential shots.

EXPEED C2 image processing system - provides enhanced movie recording, high-sensitivity performance and maximum image quality.

Smart portrait system - advanced automatic features for perfect portraits. Smile Timer takes the shot when your chosen subject smiles. Blink Proof alerts you when someone had their eyes closed. Skin softening adjusts uneven skin tones on people's faces for smoother looking skin. In-camera Red-eye Fix corrects false eye-colour due to flash the instant you take the shot.

Scene Auto Selector - selects the optimum Scene mode for popular photographic situations.

18 scene modes - automatically optimize settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations.

Subject Tracking AF - will keep the camera focused on a selected subject, even if it is moving around.

Filter Effects - Use the camera to easily apply filter effects to photos already taken without connection to a computer. Soft, Selective Color, Cross Screen, Fisheye and Miniature Effect options are available.

Pet Portrait mode (new!) - When a dog or cat faces the camera, the camera automatically detects the face and then automatically releases the shutter
