Benefitting image capture is a SAFOX X 11-point autofocus system in which 9 points are cross-type for high-speed focusing. Also, located on the rear of the camera is a 3.0" 921k-dot vari-angle swing-out LCD monitor for reviewing and composing images. Working fast is possible as well thanks to a maximum shutter speed of 1/6000 second and continuous shooting rates of up to 5.5 fps.
