With its slide-away lens cover and aerodynamic design, it's clear at first sight that the Stylus Verve is not just another digital camera shoved into a bulky 35mm point-and-shoot's case. In fact, it's a powerful, easy-to-use, four-megapixel wonder that features a large 1.8-inch LCD display that's viewable even in full sunlight. The Stylus Verve even comes in six colors: blue

Optics and Resolution
The Stylus Verve features a four-megapixel CCD imager, which can gather enough information to create images approximately as large as 1,714 by 2,286 pixels. In other words, you'll be able to make photo-quality prints of your pictures at sizes up to 11 by 15 inches. The camera's 2x optical zoom lens--equivalent to a 35-70mm lens on a film camera--combines with a 4x digital zoom to simulate the power of an 8x zoom lens, but only at lower resolution settings.
The Stylus Verve can capture short video clips with sound in the movie mode setting. This feature won't likely persuade anyone to abandon their camcorder, but it is a fun and convenient way to capture movement while you're out taking pictures. The amount of video the Stylus Verve can store is limited only by the amount of memory available.
