Image Description

Full HD Video Capture 1920x1080

Full HD video with life-like color and extraordinarily sharp details. Shoot longer too - the camera’s H.264 format allows longer recording than a camera with MJPEG video does. When you’re done, you can watch your brilliant HD footage large as life on your HDTV.

Image Description

Best Face

Missed it! With the Best Face feature that won’t happen again. Use it to travel back in time after you’ve taken a picture to replace faces with the perfect moment. Use it to open eyes, replace a smile, or find that perfect expression. With the combination of lightning fast burst shots and facial recognition, you can simply tap a face that’s looking the other way, and tap again to replace it with expressions taken moments before the actual shot.

Image Description

Motion Photo

Motion Photo freezes the action around a moving subject to create a fun scene. Capture a friend dancing - then make everyone around him still as a statue. Simply shoot the footage, and then rub the area on the display where you want to keep the movement. The photo around it will freeze - it’s that easy.

Image Description

Smart Mode

Stop being jealous of the pros with their big cameras, and start taking great shots. A quick tap of Smart Mode and you’re set with various special modes. Capture perfect trails of light at night on a busy intersection full of red taillights or instantly capture a high-speed scene with Action Freeze.

Image Description
