An ACTIVE mode has been added to the lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function for more effective reduction of blur caused by camera shake with hand-held shooting of still images from a moving vehicle or movie recording while walking. In addition, the camera offers superior basic performance and a variety of advanced features, including a 3.2-inch vari-angle TFT LCD monitor with wide viewing angle, a backside illumination CMOS sensor with an effective pixel count of 18.1-million pixels, a movie recording function capable of recording1920 x 1080 60i or 50i movies, and a GPS function that supports point of interest (POI) display.”
