Camera Features

  • Sea & Sea DX860G

    An ultra-fine 1/2.5-inch CCD with an effective pixel count of 6.2 megapixels (maximum recordable pixel count of 8 megapixels) provides high-resolution image capture.
  • A large 2.5-inch TFT liquid crystal monitor in a compact, light-weight, thin aluminum camera body provides vivid image display.
  • An optical 3x zoom lens with a focal length ranging from 35 to 105mm (35mm film camera equivalent) perfectly frames your subject.
  • A macro mode on the zoom lens lets the camera focus as close as 5cm (2inch) from a subject for close-up photography of small subjects.
  • Adjustable white balance with settings compensates for a wide variety of lighting conditions: Auto, Daylight, Cloudy, Fluorescent, Tungsten, Sunset, and Custom.
  • An exposure correction function (2EV, in steps of 0.5EV) shifts auto-exposure settings to compensate for tricky lighting situations.
  • A continuous shooting function and auto-bracket function (-0.5EV, 0EV, +0.5EV) allow capturing quick bursts of images and automatic exposure variation.
  • Adjustable ISO sensitivity (Auto, 100, 200, 400) sets CCD capture sensitivity for added exposure control.
  • Special image effect settings (Black-White, Normal, Sepia, RGB) produce unique images, and sharpness settings (Soft, Normal, Vivid) control image clarity.
  • Nine photo frame functions put graphic frames around your images.
  • A motion picture function captures video of up to 640x480 pixel (VGA) resolution at a rate of 24 frames per second (24fps).
