Superior low-light performance
High-performance CMOS image sensor lets you shoot without a flash

You won't have to interrupt a moment to capture it, and your photos and HD videos will look more natural and true to your memory.

Find exciting new perspectives by swiveling out the Vari-angle display and moving the camera around-raise it overhead or move it to ground-level for suprirsing new views.
