The ES8600's powerful 22x zoom lens transforms distant scenes into dramatic close ups with absolutely no loss of image quality. The Extra Long Digital Zoom magnifies to 800x, revealing details too distant to be seen by the naked eye.
A high quality image stabilization system corrects camera shake instantly, giving you smooth, stable pictures. It enables you to record shake-free images, even on long telephoto shots without a tripod.
The ES8600's Photo Mode lets you record still images with sound for approximately seven seconds.
When the great video opportunity arises, you may not have time to deal with manual settings. Fortunately, the ES8600 can take care of all these details for you. Simply turn it on and you're ready to record.
With the ES8600, fading light doesn't mean an end to the day's recording. Thanks to the built-in video light, you'll get clear, colorful images even in complete darkness! You don't have to worry about carrying and connecting any extra equipment.
