It comes with a massive 14.7MP, surely more than necessary for a camera of this size. But hey, we don’t see any other compact snapper to match.
Aside from all those megapixels, it really is a fully–featured beast, replete with 28mm wide angle lens 720p video recording at 30fps, as well as HDMI for sticking your handiwork straight onto your LCD.
Talking of LCDs, you get a 3in round the back to check out your pics as you take them. Plus there’s ISO 3200 for when you find yourself in dank, shady nightclubs of a weekend. Or is that just us? Either way, it’ll take great snaps in the dark too.
Obviously, you get face detection thrown in as well as blink and smile detection and a “beauty shot” mode that will do all that retouching for you.
It’s due to drop in August at the not unreasonable price of £229. Will it make it into our compacts Top Ten? Stay tuned to Stuff.tv to find out.
