Shake Reduction and Dust Removal features keep image capture sharp and free of pesky dust. The new GR Engine 6 and updated image algorithms produce greater contrast and detail in imagery. To increase usability, control key layout has been redesigned from scratch and its 3″ Touch LCD Screen offers flexibility and simplicity to users. Photographers wanting more shooting options can attach the GW-4 Wide Conversion Lens via the GA-1 Lens Adapter to modify the lens by 0.75x.
