It also features 4X optical zoom lens from wide angle of 27mm*1 in a slim, stylish body. It is scheduled to go on sale in Japan in early March, 2011.

  2. iAUTO to detect the situations and AF Tracking to track the subject
  3. Newly added Sparkle*4 in Magic Filter*5

The VG-110 is equipped with 4x zoom lens from wide angle of 27mm in a slim, stylish body. Equipped with an abundant array of easy-to-use automatic functions like iAUTO which enables any user to easily take beautiful pictures, and automatic tracking AF for face detection, it is simple to use even for novices. Also pressing the “?” button within the Menu display allows you to view descriptions of the functions.

Using higher ISO sensitivities allows the use of faster shutter speeds, reducing camera movement and subject blur. Images shot in this mode will have less noise and better color reproduction than images shot just using a high ISO.

Magic Filters
The VG-110 features an expanded range of 7 Magic Filters, Pop, Pin Hole, Fisheye, Sketch, Soft Focus and Punk inherited from the previous model, and newly added Sparkle. With Sparkle filter, you can enjoy photos with the luxurious feel created by the added twinkling lights.
