Full-time live view works with both the LCD and the live view finder. This means that, no matter which way you shoot, you see before you shoot how adjusting the exposure compensation, white balance, aperture and even the shutter speed will affect the image. On the G10, both the LCD and the live view Finder boast true full-time live view capability.The G10's 4/3-type 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor offers the best of both worlds the superior image quality of a CCD sensor, and the lower power consumption of a CMOS sensor. This sensor is also advantageous for photo and movie recording with its high S/N, thanks to an advanced circuit structure that is unaffected by the noise generated in each of the circuits. It results in clear images even when taken at high ISO sensitivity.With the G10 you're always ready for those sudden, spur-of-the-moment photo opportunities. Just press the dedicated iA button and aim the camera at your subject. The G10 automatically determines the most suitable Scene mode and helps correct blurring, focus, and brightness problems to capture great photos.While taking photos my color mode makes it easy to capture creative images. Just aim the camera and select any of seven preset effects, including silhouette, expressive, pure and others, while checking the image in live view. The custom setting lets you adjust the color, brightness and saturation to your liking, to further expand your creative palette.The venus engine HD II incorporates two CPUs. This not only boosts image processing speed, it also helps achieve an exceptional noise-reduction performance. Also the venus engine HD II features a circuit that makes intelligent resolution technology possible.In iA mode, the G10 automatically identifies parts with outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas, and optimizes the edge emphasis on the outlines and detailed texture areas while using the Venus Engine noise reduction process to make the soft gradation areas smoother. You can capture stunning images with details you've never seen before in both photo and movie recording.If dust or other foreign matter gets inside the camera when you're changing lenses, it could cling to the image sensor and show up as a spot in photos. The G10 helps eliminate this possibility by placing a supersonic wave filter in front of the live MOS sensor. Vibrating around 50,000 times per second, the filter repels dust and other particles. This keeps the image sensor clean at all times and eliminates the need for cumbersome maintenance procedures.
