The top of the camera is very simple, with only the power button, shutter release and zoom controls found there.
The large 2.5-inch color LCD with 230,000 pixels of resolution serves as the viewfinder as well as for reviewing your images and movies and accessing the menu screens. In lower light conditions the LCD will "gain up" for better framing.
Controls on the back: At the top you will find the mode dial, easily and quickly allowing you to change the cameras shooting mode. At the bottom you will find the 4-way controller with shortcuts for LCD brightness, Flash, Self timer and Macro shooting mode. In between these two you will find the DISP. and Playback buttons.
On the right side of the camera is a USB 2 port that not only allows you transfer your images to your computer, but also allows you to view you slideshows and videos on a TV with the help of the optional AV cable. At the bottom you can also see the loop for the Wrist Strap.
Still images and movie clips are stored on 23MB of internal flash memory or removable SD, SDHC, or MMC memory cards. Shown here with a SanDisk Ultra II 15MB/s 4GB SDHC card.
