For each picture there is a “blur warning“: Red – bad, yellow – OK, and green – good. Then, it scans eyes in the photographs you take, and automatically removes red-eye. However, in low light the camera hardly manages to focus.
As for the panoramic mode, even if you are able take only 3 photographs, the camera automatically stiches them inside of the camera. It can also enhance pictures (feature known as KODAK PPERFECT TOUCH technology), and crop inside of the camera, with no use of computer, then, still with no use of computer, you can print your pictures via PictBridge.
