Detailed Specifications
Focusing System: TTL contrast detection autofocus, AF assist lamp, Macro Illuminating LEDs
Focusing System:
The type of focusing system used to capture a sharp image. Some simple cameras have fixed (infinity) focus. Most modern cameras have autofocus systems which determine the distance to the subject automatically. There are two main types of autofocus: active autofocus, where an infrared light (or a sonar pulse) is emitted by the camera and reflected by the subject, and passive autofocus, where the image transmitted by the lens is analysed for its sharpness by a detector inside the camera.

Image Sensor: Backlit CMOS w primary color filter
Image Sensor:
Describes the makeup, build, and technology of the sensor that is in the camera. An Image Sensor is a device that converts an optical image to an electric signal. It is used mostly in digital cameras and other imaging devices. It is a set of charge-coupled devices (CCD) or CMOS sensors such as active-pixel sensors.

Image Stabilization: Pixel Track SR, Digital SR
Image Stabilization:
This is a family of techniques used to reduce blurring associated with the motion of a camera during exposure. Image stabilization helps in low light situations using slower shutter speeds.
