Shooting high-quality images just got even easier with the L31. Take advantage of its 16.1 megapixels and 5x optical zoom to capture every moment in your life. With the Motion Detect blur reduction function, you can shoot wide-angle group shots with your friends to faraway subjects without worrying about blurred images. All you have to do is aim, preview your shot with the 2.7-inch LCD monitor, and the L31’s Easy Auto Mode will do the rest.
Add your own creative spin to your photos with the L31’s Special Effect and Quick Effect functions. The Smart Portrait System and Skin Softening effect comes with improved face detection and enhanced skin tone exposure control so your subjects will look flawless. Stand out from others with these built-in fun effects that lets you get more imaginative with your photographic expressions.
With the Easy Auto Mode, the L31 allows you to capture that perfect shot, without having to worry about any complicated settings. The Motion Detect blur reduction function automatically compensates for camera shakes, so you’ll always have sharp images.
1. Key features
Since the camera runs on readily available R6/AA-size alkaline or rechargeable batteries, you can travel with it and not worry about running out of power.
The 16.1 effective megapixels yield high-resolution images, and the 5x optical zoom offers a wide-angle view equivalent to a 26 mm* lens so you can fit everyone into group shots. The bright display of the 6.7 cm (2.7-in.) TFT LCD monitor offers a clear view whether you’re framing your shot or viewing pictures.
This camera lets you add effects before and after you shoot to create original shots. For instance, select a Special effect before shooting to capture wonderfully unique images, or select a Quick effect to apply after shooting and change any scene into something amazingly different.
