More Information
Notes & Features: Stainless-steel body has "twist" design (section with lens and flash rotates 90 degrees to turn on/off camera, negating need for lens to extend at startup and making camera smaller. Comes with a docking station (the "Cool-Station Power Base") for image transfer, battery charging - including the ability to charge a spare battery. Slated for Spring availability.
