The machine has the mechanical stabilizer, which acts directly on the sensor to reduce the risk of blur in photos. The 3-inch display (460,000 pixel resolution) is of the type articulated. To frame there is also the electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 260,000 pixel.

There are plenty of special effects, as well as the HDR mode (pictures with extended dynamic range.) The video recording is in Full HD 1080/30p.
