Its 51 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 100-204800 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 100-204800. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in very low-light. With 51 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/4000 to 30s. Bulb exposures of an unspecified duration are possible with this camera. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/4000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.
