The 786 pixel (horizontal) CCD image sensor, Electronic Still Camera Standardization Committee optional “Hi-band” specification, ultra-compact integral flash and “intelligent auto white balance” giving excellent color regardless of lighting made full color electronic photography as easy and affordable as contemporary 35mm compact cameras.
