    During daytime, the HyperCrystal LCD remains bright and clear, even in directsunlight,due to an additional layer in the screen that reflects light away from any external light source. The screen is also viewable ata 160-degree angle. The Bright Capture Technology allows easier framing of low light scenes since the LCD preview remains bright enough to see the subject. The Bright Capture Technology also minimizes blur as the increased sensitivity can allow faster shutter speeds.

    Other Features:

    • ISO Range: Auto, 64, 100, 200, 400, 800 (SQ1), 1600 (SQ1) (equivalent)
    • Image Effects: Still Image: Black and White, Sepia, Resize, Rotation, Red-eye Fix
      Movie: Frame Index

    Wow, 8MP in that size is strong. Throw in the large LCD and water resistance...that's a nice ultra compact option. I doubt it will be over $500 either, so the price will make it tough to beat in that class.
