The TG-820 iHS also features HDR Backlight Adjustment that takes a collage of separate photos and blends them into one perfectly exposed image regardless of difficult lighting; enhanced Intelligent Auto that detects the scene automatically; Beauty Mode with Make up to soften shadows and smooth wrinkles and blemishes on your subject’s face, 3D image capture mode, and Magic Art Filters for adding creative touches to images and video.
