A mode that reduces camera shake and blurring when photographing still images. The sensitivity is adjusted automatically, to as high as ISO1000, to match the brightness of the subjects. This enables photography with faster shutter speeds, and images with less blurring can be obtained.

I have the previous model to this from ebuyer, approx 6 mths ago similar price.

Really good as a pocket snapshot camera - flahs not great at distance indoors or outdoors at night, but expected TBH.
outdoor/daylight shots are great - macro mode is fantastic.
Anti-shake is good and video good with VGA resolution.

If same as mine (looks the same body) runs on AA and SD cards.

Here's a review of the camera: ]http//ww…/p1

Quite tempting...

Here's another review for anyone interested:

Voted cold as I think the title mis leads - 8.1 effective megapixels - what is the real value? Bit like PMPO vs RMS in speakers, peak vs continuous ouput on PSUs, etc...

"Effective pixels", also known as "recorded pixels", gives the true count of the number of pixels that are actually used for capturing an image - and this is the number you should look for.
