Marketing Information

The 28mm wide-angle is especially convenient for recording indoors or in tight spaces. It makes it possible to shoot at a close distance from the subject while fitting both the subject and the surrounding area into the frame. The Intelligent Zoom incorporates the Image Processing LSI "Crystal Engine PRO," a super-high resolution technology to achieve ultra-telephoto 40x shooting beyond the optical zoom range of 21x. This brings faraway subjects right up close to capture dynamic images that fill the entire frame.
