A large 2-inch LCD with high definition enables you to check the subject before you actually take the picture. The slim and smooth design emphasizes the simple, elegant image of the A400.
Image edit function
Editing is the most important concern in these digital pictures. You can correct or modify an image by running an editing program, but it is costly time-consuming to learn how to use and become familiar with the program. So for the sake of user convenience, this function is incorporated into the digital camera. The function enables a slide show of pictures taken, resolution changes, a trimming function, image rotation, and picture protection so that you can use the camera more conveniently. In addition, the function enables you to check information about the picture immediately.
The Graphic User Interface has been improved, and you can see all menus in English to select menus easily and quickly. The arrangement of buttons, such as the Mode dial for selecting a shooting mode and the 5-function button for selecting functions, is user-friendly so that you can operate them with ease. The interface has been enhanced, focusing on very easy access to the operating buttons and frequently-used functions so that you can use a variety of digital camera functions easily and quickly. You can also employ the exposure compensation, white balance, and ISO functions by using the +/- button on the back of the camera.

Basic Functions for Taking Pictures
5 Scene modes (Night, Portrait, Landscape, Text, and Fireworks) are available for taking pictures in optimal conditions according to the shooting situation, so that you can achieve more natural-looking colours in all circumstances. Pictures can be taken continuously and a double self-timer function with 2 and 10 second delays is provided. Therefore you can shoot high quality images when you take commemorative pictures, or close-ups, or take shots at very short range. The exposure compensation value is set to ±2EV (adjustable in 0.5EV increments). This facility enables clearer colour reproduction.
More Natural-Looking Colours by Controlling White Balance and Using Custom W/B Function
This digital camera provides White Balance functions (Daylight, Cloudy, Fluorescent, Tungsten, and Custom) so that you can achieve more natural-looking colour reproduction under any light conditions. Additionally, RGB enables you to control colours in the way you want.
Movie Recording and Play Function in VGA (640x480) with High Compression and High Quality, for the First Time in a Digital Camera
For clearer sharper movies, this camera uses a high compression, high quality movie clip format, and movie clips are supported in VGA (640x480) at 24fps. In VGA (640×480), you can play a movie clip on your TV without any degradation of image quality, and enjoy it in a screen size twice as large as a computer screen. Because this digital camera supports up to 30 frames per second, you can view a smooth movie with natural-looking colours. You can record voice and movies for as long as the available recording time in the memory allows. In addition, you can extract desired frames from the recorded movie. The above features make this digital camera a perfect substitute for a camcorder.

Through the LCD of the camera, you can check the printer’s progress status. PictBridge is completely compatible with DPOF so that you can also use the existing output format (DPOF) according to the printer type.
Voice Recording and Voice Memo
