The company also felicitated celebrated photojournalist Raghu Rai and the country's first woman photojournalist Homai Vyarawala at the launch event.

Rai said being compact, this range of cameras will help photographers like him to shoot candidly in crowded places and hence help in getting the best moods, without compromising on the image quality as they produce SLR-like images.
