When used together with iAuto or Face Detection, the subject's face is shot with optimal exposure settings so that the face can be recorded clearly even under strong back light conditions. The TruePic VI image processor further reduces noise in the shadowy areas allowing for even better backlight adjustment.
Face Detection automatically focuses on your subjects' faces and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.
AF Tracking automatically tracks unpredictable, fast-moving subjects such as kids and pets, and continuously adjusts the focus and brightness so you can capture these photogenic whirlwinds with ease.
Capture breathtaking panoramic views and vistas just as you remember them, all in one frame and at the touch of a button, by simply panning the camera across the scene. No computer necessary!

GREAT ALL AROUND POINT AND SHOOT CAMERA
By Pop the builder
from Roanoke, Va
This camera works great in the water and out. I liked the sturdiness of it. My 3 year old grandson loved taking pictures with it. Well worth the money. My only issue is the size of the navigation buttons. That's the only reason I gave it 4 stars. On the other hand if they made the buttons larger then the camera would have needed to be larger. I'll deal with the small buttons and take the compact camera any day.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best Option on Market
from Eastern NC
I do a lot of sailing and although my old Panasonic has a great optical zoom, it just won't handle any moisture. This takes great pictures and the electronic zoom does a good job of bring in wildlife (Although elecronic zoom does not work in 'Smart mode'). Love that shutter clicks instantly when button pushed. Good overall camera.
