The IXY DIGITAL 920 IS succeeds the IXY DIGITAL 910 IS, which was well received for its wide-angle 28 mm* wide-zoom lens following its launch in September 2007. The new model, available in gold or silver, features a CCD sensor that has been upgraded from 8 to 10 megapixels, as well as a large 3-inch Clear Live LCD II monitor with improved visibility. While incorporating an increased optical zoom lens capability from 3.8x to 4x, the 920 IS realizes a body design which, measuring 23.6 mm deep, is 2.3 mm slimmer than its predecessor.
