Features of Product 1/2.3 type super HAD CCD and effective 14.1 megapixels . The W520 has employed 1/2.3 type super HAD CCD and features 14.1 effective megapixels. This enables you to capture high quality image enough to enjoy large sized printing. Sweep Panorama-The W520 can take breathtaking panoramic views by automatically assembling individual frames shot at high speeds. Users simply sweep the camera compactly in the desired direction to create stunning landscapes and cityscapes, including vertical shots of tall buildings like churches. Panorama settings, selectable from the menu while shooting, are sweep direction (up/down/right/left) and image size (two different sizes).When viewing panoramas, each shot is shown as a single image in its entirety. Scrolling preview is also possible with scroll direction determined by the direction the camera was moved when shooting the image. Intelligent auto mode Intelligent auto mode enables the camera to automatically determine the optimum settings for seven scenes, easily capturing the moment without having to bother with difficult adjustments. Users can tell at a glance when intelligent scene recognition is enabled via a flashing icon at the top left of the display. Intelligent scene recognition greatly simplifies shooting by automatically determining the optimum settings in difficult shooting conditions such as dark and backlit environments. There are seven settings available: backlight, backlight portrait, twilight, twilight portrait, portrait, landscape and macro. An icon appears on the screen to clearly indicate which setting is being used. Face detection with the ability to track up to eight faces at once, Face detection produces superb quality images by determining AF and exposure based on the faces being tracked. Wherever the faces are located on the display, flexible portrait framing captures the designated faces clearly and at optimal brightness. ISO3200 performance and high sensitivity mode realize clear and sharp image high shutter speeds, made possible by high sensitivity up to ISO 3200, reduce blur caused by camera shake and subject shake. Moreover, the high sensitivity mode enables clear images to be achieved even when shooting in difficult low light conditions, such as indoors without a flash, or capturing fast-moving subjects
