Superb underwater shots
Capture great shots under any light with HS System - an exclusive combination of a high-sensitivity 12.1 MegapixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints. CMOS sensor and a powerful DIGIC 4 processor. HS System excels in low light – typical of underwater environments - while Underwater mode and Custom White Balance allow you to quickly adjust to the natural colours at depth, so it’s easier to capture the real aquatic atmosphere. Use Underwater MacroMACROProducing photographs that render extreme close-ups of extremely small subjects like insects, hence its popularity among nature photographers. It requires using a macro lens with a large reproduction (magnification) ratio of at least 1:1, which renders a subject larger than life size. Macro lenses are capable of focussing at extremely short distances (some as little as a few centimetres), allowing the photographer to get very close to the subject. for sharp, clear close ups of marine life.
