There is so much technology in such a small camera device and best of all, it is one of the fastest cameras on the market at this moment.

This feature will snap up to six photos at various exposures in a fast sequence, then put the images together to refine the photo.

Then, it will show you those two pictures one next to the other and it will let you choose the one you like the most.

However, over all, this a great gadget to own; in a nutshell, it is a small camera capable of big things.
