High image quality over a 40x zoom range
6-line monochrome touch panel is sensitive to touch and intuitive to operate. User may also customize the Home Menu page with the frequently used function located in front page for easy navigation.The 40x optical zoom covers a wide range of focal lengths from 10mm to a super telephoto 400mm, with its 2.0x built-in extender making it possible to shoot at up to 800mm. This results in a lens that is ideal for scenes that call for focal length versatility. The lens construction utilizes Hi-UD (Hi Index Ultra Low Dispersion) glass and fluorite lens elements, providing a high MTF from the image center all the way to its peripheries, throughout the entire zoom range. Axial and lateral chromatic aberration are also reduced, particularly at the telephoto end, and ghosting and flaring is minimized, providing the tack sharp images that are essential for HDTV.
