The ultra compact ZX-10 utilizes advanced technology to offer a user-friendly introduction to photography yet allows you to advance step-by-step to ever higher levels of creativity.
The ZX-10, with its user-friendly digital control, is one of the most compact and lightweight 35mm autofocus SLR cameras now on the market.

The five "Picture Modes" offered on the ZX-10 include Green Operation, Portrait, Landscape, Close-up or Action Program Mode.
The built-in "Smart Flash" is your reliable assistant in difficult lighting conditions. When the flash is popped up (auto flash mode), the flash will fire automatically as needed. The Smart Flash is also equipped with a pre-flash emission to reduce "red-eye" effect in your subject's eyes.

The multi-data LCD panel, with large icons and numbers, efficiently supplements the camera's simple operation system.
