On the Xacti S5, the originally recorded 5.1 megapixels can be converted to the equivalent of 10 megapixels (3680 x 2760 pixels). This way, you are assured of beautiful, high-resolution images that can be printed on A4 (or larger) paper. And if you're shooting a small subject in close-up, the Super Macro mode lets you get as close as 2 cm from the subject. So it's easy to create unforgettable memories in beautifully vibrant detail.

Simple

The Xacti S5 sports a large, 1.8-inch, low-reflective, Thin Film Transistor (TFT) color monitor, which enables clear viewing even in bright outdoor locations. Furthermore, it offers user-friendly functions such as USB-connectivity to a PictBridge-compatible printer, for direct printing of selected pictures.  
   
Fun

Everyday images can be captured via a variety of automatic modes. Portrait mode, for example, gives your photographic subject more presence, while ID mode lets you shoot ID-size photos. Naturally, the Xacti S5 also comes with a self-portrait mirror to facilitate taking photos of yourself.  

Well designed

The ergonomic shape of the Xacti S5 makes it easy to grip and therefore easier to shoot the images you want. A low-reflective, color, TFT LCD monitor and a self-portrait mirror are included on its compact 91.3 mm x 61.5 mm body, along with the high-quality 5.1-megapixel CCD and 2.8x optical zoom lens.
