Telephoto - 10.8 feet (3.3 m)
On the back is a large and bright 3.0-inch color LCD with 230,400 pixels of resolution. The LCD has a 170-degree wide viewing angle and shows 100% as the live viewfinder and during image review.
Controls on the back: Along the top edge is the Mode button for choosing the exposure mode, Flash mode
