It also offers a range of shooting modes, including the innovative 3D image mode for stereoscopic shooting. For greater versatility, the Optio230 even has a swing-out screen, which folds out through 180� to assist in a variety of situations. And for connectivity to PC, the Optio230 is USB compatible.
