40x Optical Zoom Konica Minolta HD Lens
When recording in HD, you get up to 40x optical zoom - the industry's highest level. When recording in Standard Definition, the Dynamic Zoom function uses nearly all of the effective pixels of the CMOS to achieve up to 70x magnification without any degradation of picture quality
Advanced Image Stabilizer
Camera-shake compensation is another important feature of a video camera. Our Advanced Image Stabilizer (A.I.S.) expands the effective area at wide angle, delivering powerful compensation for camera shake. Now, you can enjoy stable results even if you're trotting alongside your subject
2-Way Grip Belt
The belt works both ways - as a standard grip belt or a convenient wrist strap. You can choose which way, to best match your style of shooting or carrying at any time
Time-Lapse Rec
Time-Lapse REC records one frame at a time at set intervals (1-80 seconds). So you can watch movement that's hours long in just a few seconds when played back. It's great when you want to observe an event that takes place over a long period of time or to record unique-looking scenes in a creative way
Auto REC
When a subject enters the detecting area and the luminance changes, recording starts automatically. Recording continues as long as there is movement within the area and automatically stops after 5 seconds of no movement. You can use it like a surveillance camera or to observe something.

Animation Effect
Choose the theme, and the camera automatically spices up your footage with animated fun graphics and effects while you record. Add an extra touch to make your memories look extra special
