The Optio S6 represents a breakthrough device by allowing digital camera users to natively capture videos in the extremely popular DivX format for the first time.

DivX has become one of the most popular video technologies in the world by enabling the creation and distribution of DVD quality video at a file size small enough to be transferred among an entire ecosystem of devices and platforms.
