Misc. notes Back-illuminated CMOS sensor promises better low light shots than traditional CCDs. Sweep panorama feature lets you create a single image (over 7000 pixels wide) simply by panning the camera from one side of the frame to another. Built-in GPS with compass for enhanced geotagging. "Active" Optical SteadyShot feature provides 10 times the stabilization of regular IS systems. Supports TransferJet wireless protocol, which requires a special MS Duo card and a receiver on the other end.
