Be sure to never take shots of segment of a mountain, portion of a lake, part of a tall building, or even half a face again with E1260’s 4x zoom on the 28mm wide angle lens. The wide angle lens enables the users to take panoramic shots of scenic landscapes or bustling cityscapes, as well as great photos of friends and family – even close-ups. When faced with a situation hard to be captured into a still shot, those precious moments can be made into movies with the E1260’s ability to shoot 720p videos. Users can forget about carrying a separate video camera when true-colour high-definition movies are just a button press away.
