It also features a 2.7" LCD display that is a fullscreen touch panel. Its other features are similar to the lower models, including 1.5MP image sensor, 40x optical zoom, face detection and automatic shooting mode. This camcorder does not have any on-board flash storage, though it does have two empty SD card slots, so maximum storage capacity could be fairly large. The microphone is also upgraded, from the entry level models. Like the other Everios this comes bundled with media viewing software, compatible with Windows.
