An intuitive and clear GUI has also been adopted to make the camera easier to use. The S2 is also equipped with a Creative Palette that allows users to freely change imaging effects with simple operation of the rotary multi selector. A variety of movie functions, including support for recording of 1920 x 1080/60p full-HD movies and Auto Image Capture during movie recording, as well as new advanced movie functions such as Fast Motion, Jump Cut, and 4-second Movie stimulate user's creative intent.
