High-performance 38-130mm 3.4x zoom lens
The Accura Zoom 130S QD comes equipped with a 38-130mm 3.4x zoom lens. The high-performance aspherical glass lens and hybrid aspherical lens elements ensure exceptional resolution and contribute to the compact, lightweight design.
More compact, lightweight and slimmer body
A wide array of technologies account for the compact and lightweight body of the Accura Zoom 130S QD. The aspherical lens elements are essential to the smaller and lighter lens group, while the four-stage lens barrel has slimmed down the body to 1.8 inches. A roof prism in the viewfinder's optical system also contributes to the improved space efficiency.
In addition to the highly stylish sliding lens barrier, this model is designed with a new metallic color (Starry Metallic).
High-powered flash suited for the 130mm telephoto setting
An optimum flash reflector and efficient electrical circuit allow the delivery of sufficient flash intensity at the 130mm telephoto setting, without increased battery consumption. For natural-looking results, the Accura Zoom 130S QD also features a Soft Flash system.
Passive Multi AF System
The Passive Multi Autofocus system (a phase-differential method) offers the ideal AF system for a camera with a higher zooming ratio, such as the Accura Zoom 130S QD.
Versatile flash modes
Multi-function versatile flash modes make it easy for anyone to take great flash photographs. The Accura Zoom 130S QD features a Soft Flash system that adjusts the intensity of the illumination automatically according to the distance from the subject.
The flash fires automatically in lowlight or backlighting to ensure appropriate illumination.
The red-eye effect a common problem with flash portraits is reduced by a series of pre-flashes emitted before the main flash fires.
With the flash always off in this mode, it is suited to capturing the mood of the moment or occasions where flash photography is prohibited.
The flash fires with every shot. Even when there are such complications as sidelighting or backlighting, fill-in flash produces the balanced illumination essential to a lifelike image.
This mode enables outstanding shots at night. To capture the background, the shutter speed is slowed to as long as 4 sec., while the intensity of the flash and exposure are determined by the brightness of the foreground.
Red-Eye Reducing Night Scene
This mode reduces the red-eye effect in pictures taken in the night scene mode. Except for the series of pre-flashes, it is identical to the night scene mode.
The Accura Zoom 130S QD enables users to take close-ups from as close as 2 feet at the wide end and 3 feet at the tele end.
This mode ensures accurate focusing and exposure of the main subject, regardless of the surrounding light conditions.
This feature keeps the subject in sharp focus while the photographer adjusts the composition.
