The special edition camera will be available at the end of February and will include all the features that have made the original model popular with serious photographers. These include thorough weatherproof sealing, built-in five-axis stabilisation with up to 6.5EV in shutter speed steps of shake compensation and high-speed sequential shooting at up to 18 fps with AF/AE tracking. The TruePic VIII image processor provides high image quality at high ISO settings and the  20.4-megapixel Live MOS sensor delivers  high image quality with maximum resolution without the need for a low-pass filter.
