Intelligent IS combats camera shake to ensure all your photos and videos are sharp and detailed even at full zoom or in low light. It automatically adjusts the optical Image Stabilizer to the scene from 7 modes to prevent blur.

Steady shots in every situation

Full HD movies
Use the movie button to instantly record Full HD (1080p) movies in stereo with optical zoom, while Intelligent IS keeps footage steady.An HDMI connection ensures high quality playback on an HDTV.

1080p movies

7.5 cm (3.0") PureColor II G LCD
A large 460k dot LCD screen with excellent visibility allows easy framing and reviewing of images from almost any angle plus effortless menu navigation. A tempered glass outer layer gives great durability.

Enhanced strength and visibility

Smart Auto (58 scenes)
Effortlessly shoot great photos or movies with Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects optimal settings from 58 variables (21 in movies). It also works with faces stored in Face ID and adapts shooting according to registered age - for example turning off flash and sounds when a sleeping baby is detected or automatically capturing 3 quick shots when detecting children at play.

Auto mode with 58-scene detection

Face ID
Face ID lets you register up to 12 faces of family and friends, so they are automatically the focusing priority in every shot, and tags images with their names so they are easy to find in playback.

Recognises your favourite people

Manual, Av and Tv modes
Experiment with different effects using Manual modes (Tv, Av and M), which give you creative control over shutter speed and aperture.

Aperture and shutter speed control

High-speed shooting
Capture fast-paced action with High-speed Burst or slow down fast movement with Super Slow Motion Movie.
