Coupled with the 1cm Macro mode, which lets the photographer capture dramatic close-up images of a subject from just one centimeter away, it offers quick, effortless shooting in a wide range of photographic situations. It also provides the Intelligent Zoom function, which extends the camera's zoom coverage to approximately 187.2 times (for a focal length of 4174mm in the 35mm format) without compromising image quality.
