50x optical zoom
Distance is no issue. Pull everything closer with huge 50x optical zoom – for pin-sharp clarity in every frame.
The lens moves gyroscopically and compensates for movements caused by shooting handheld, giving you amazingly sharp pictures across the focal range.
Track the action
Never lose sight of the perfect shot. Lock-on autofocus automatically adjusts frame size based on the characteristics of your subject for clear and defined results.
Handle like a pro
Get the feel and look of a DLSR with easy-to-use controls and an ergonomic grip. Buttons and features are carefully placed and easy to reach, just like a professional camera.
With the mode dial, you can select aperture or shutter priority. A handy control dial for your thumb gives you quick and simple manual control over whichever mode you’ve selected.
