- 1" 13.2 × 8.8 mm CMOS Exmor sensor, with a 2.7× crop factor which uses the "Column-Parallel A/D Conversion Technique" to create higher detail images in very low light conditions.
- 10 fps at 20.2MP.
- Very fast auto focus in low light, for a point-and-shoot camera.
- Tilt-able pop-up flash, so light can bounced off, instead of a direct flash.
- Fast and bright variable aperture, F1.8-F4.9 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens.
