Product information

Shoot like a pro: this feature-packed, easy-to-use camera fits comfortably in your hand with DSLR-like body styling. From landscapes to dramatic, frame-filling close-ups of wildlife on safari, you won’t miss a thing with the powerful 35x optical zoom lens.

Pro styling
Effortlessly handle lengthy shooting assignments with a compact DSLR-style camera body that fits comfortably in your hand. Every control’s carefully placed and easy to reach, like you'd expect from a DSLR camera.

35x optical zoom
There’s no need to fiddle with changing lenses while you’re in the wild or on the beach: every photo opportunity’s covered with the powerful 35x optical zoom lens. Grab expansive, wide-angle landscapes – or zoom in for super-telephoto close-ups of animals and birds.

Image stabilisation
Optical SteadyShot cuts down on camera shake for clearer, sharper stills - even at extreme zoom settings.

Auto shooting
Wondering which settings are best? Let your Intelligent Auto do all the work. From close-ups to twilight portraits, your camera adjusts everything automatically so you easily get the results you want, no fuss. It even detects if your subject's moving, cutting motion blur in any scene.

It's easy to grab breathtaking views of landscapes or city scenes with Panorama Mode. Just press the button and sweep the camera from side to side (or up and down). Your camera automatically stitches together a high-speed burst of frames to create one full panoramic image.

Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good - easy to use Good zoom, easy to use functions. Would recommend for a straight forward camera. 16 September 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by really useful product takes a bit getting of used to as the instructions supplied are very poor. have to use someone else computer to get details. good service from John Lewis from time of order to when we could collect which was earlier than quoted. 18 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good value. Really good quality pictures, in low light as well as bright and also on the zoom. The more expensive models would focus faster and also take quicker pictures continuously, but as long as you have a couple of seconds to take the picture - which let's face it is pretty normal - then it punches well above its price. 30 June 2015
