The camera also has a fixed 3-inch display, 37 MB of internal memory, a SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot, 802.11n Wi-Fi, a microphone, a HDMI port and a USB port. The installed battery is good for up to 380 shots and there’s support for RAW files and video shooting at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels at 60p and 30p) and at HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels at 30p).
