The compact GC-S5 digital still camera is perfect for capturing digital still images for multimedia use. It combines easy operation with advanced features to deliver high-quality still images.

Manual override gives you complete creative control. The camera has a range of onboard special digital effects you can enjoy without using any additional software, including 1x - 4x zoom, sepia coloration, and multi-screen (9 images per frame). The mode dial makes it easy to access menus and functions for quick shooting. The Motor Drive is ideal for capturing quick action sequences, shooting up to 16 shots in quick succession. Later, you can edit out the shots you don't want, or keep them all. Review the shots you've stored in memory, 9 different images at a time, with the convenient multi-picture display.
