The lens

The bright, highly-advanced, 2.8x inner optical zoom lens (F2.7) achieves high-speed zooming of around 1.5 seconds. Along with the 4x digital zoom, it provides a maximum zooming capability of approximately 11x.
The Xacti J4 starts up fast, thanks to its inner zoom lens — a non-protruding optical zoom lens. Turn on the camera, and around 0.8*1 seconds later you can start taking pictures. With a between-shot interval of around 1.5 seconds*1, you can take photos in quick succession without having to wait a long time for the previous image to be saved. The fast-responding Xacti J4 takes the stress out of shooting, and ensures you get the images you want. And when it comes to playing back your recorded images, the approximately 0.5 second playback interval*2 lets you rapidly review the pictures you've already taken.
*1 For still shots in [4M] Fine mode without flash.
*2 For still shots in [4M] Normal mode.

The CCD
The Xacti J4 comes equipped with a newly-developed, 1/2.7-inch, 4.23 megapixel CCD. Employing SANYO's original pixel mixture technology, it ensures video clips with low noise and high precision. It also makes it easier to shoot movies in low light conditions.

Auto Focus

The continuous auto focus continually adjusts for changes in the shooting situation, enabling you to stay focussed on your subject even if it moves. Now you'll be able to capture every crucial moment.

The LCD    

The Xacti J4 comes with a newly-developed, high-quality 85,000-pixel panel. This amorphous silicon TFT LCD enables easy viewing, even under direct sunlight. And thanks to the wide viewing angle, several people can enjoy seeing the images at the same time.
