It is easy to download the pictures from your camera to your computer, either at home or at the shop and edit them before printing. Once they are on your computer, you can easily share your pics with the rest of the world by putting them on-line, or e-mailing them to friends.

Picture quality
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
5 MP
Image sensor size*
Sensor type*
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Maximum image resolution*
Resolution is the amount of detail held by an image. The higher the resolution, the better (sharper) the image. The maximum image resolution produces the best image.
2592 x 1944 pixels
Lens system
Optical zoom*
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom*
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.

Light metering*
Light metering mode refers to the way in which a device determines the exposure. Multi-pattern and evaluative metering: the camera measures the light intensity in several points in the scene. Centre-weighted metering: the meter concentrates between 60 to 80 percent of the sensitivity towards the central part of the viewfinder. Spot metering: the camera will only measure a very small area of the scene (between 1-5% of the viewfinder area).
Flash modes*
