audio (monaural) are recorded in H.264 (MPEG4.AVC).
Still Image Size: The camera can record JPEG still images in a 3:2, 16:9,
or 1:1 aspect ratio with three compression ratio settings (Super
Fine, Fine, and Normal). RAW format photos are captured alone, or along with a

will be metered for light. This is suitable when the subject in the center
is exposed correctly, regardless of the back lighting.

of the available light in the image area. However, the calculation will be
biased towards the center of the image area. This is suitable for taking a
picture of small objects like a flower or insects.

Histogram: A histogram is a graph that displays how light is
distributed in your photo. If the histogram has a high peak on the left, your
photos are dark. A peak on the right of the graph means that your photos are
bright. The height of the peaks is related to color information. The more of a
particular color, the taller the peak.
Optional GPS: With the optional WGS 84 GPS module attached to
the camera's Smart Shoe, location information can be associated with the photos
you take. Photos with location information can be used for GeoTagging, and
linking to Google Maps (requires supplied Intelli-Studio software).
