The camera measures 19.8mm thick, but features a 2.7-inch LCD viewfinder with reinforced glass coating and a 5x optical zoom lens. It comes in four two-toned color schemes, including pink, silver, brown and black and white. The camera also sports face detection auto-focus and exposure technology and automatic red eye removal.

Other features include "Blog Mode," which resizes images to 640 x 480; photo folder management; dual shot mode (one with a flash, one without); 16 scene positions; "auction mode" for preparing photos for use on eBay and other auction sites; the ability to capture 640 x 480 movies at 30 frames per second; a rotary dial menu and other capabilities.

The camera writes images to a single media slot that accepts xD Picture Cards, SD cards and SDHC cards. It's powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery, and connects to a host Mac using USB 2.0.
