The greatest advantage of this point and shoot entry level camera is the fact that it can also record video at HD 720p quality thus removing the need for a dedicated camcorder. Unless you are a professional videographer, you shall need nothing more than this camera. With 14.1 megapixel and 5X optical zoom, it provides a great DIGIC 4 image processor for still imagery and HD video output. The auto focus works on three levels with single, continuous and Servo AF. It uses an image stabilizer with lens shift type and uses many new technologies such as red eye reduction, macro settings and more. The camera also comes with some additional features such as the 1/2.3" CCD sensor, 2.7" LCD screen, and 4x digital zoom.
