    featuring

    Hello,

    The sentence below addresses a digital camera (the phrase is taken from an add for a camera)

    "Record your world in motion with video featuring audio capture, playback, on-camera editing, and prints from video (1, 4, 9, and 16-up)"

    1) What does "1, 4, 9, and 16-up" mean in this context? I doubt the last part of the phrase with "16-up". is it the same as "up to 16"? In other words you can get prints from videos (1 print, 4 prints, 9 prints and up to 16 prints)?

    2) "featuring" means here that video contains audio capture, playback, etc. as its (video's) most essential (most significant, most distinguishing) part? Right?

    Thanks!!!

    I am not a teacher.

    1) That "up" is photographer's jargon; "4-up" means that the camera will compose a page for printing that has the first frame of your video, one frame one-third of the way through, one frame two-thirds of the way through and the last frame, for a total of 4 pictures on the page, arranged two by two. The other numbers are similar. Your example was punctuated wrong by the Kodak people. It should be thus: (1-, 4-, 9-, and 16-up).

    2) You are right about "featuring".
