HIGH SPEED EXILIM
TOKYO, January 7, 2010 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., today announced the release of four new models in its EXILIM digital camera lineup. The first, the HIGH SPEED EXILIM® EX-FH100, features Casio’s heralded high-speed burst shooting, which ensures users never miss a crucial shot again, and packs a high-power zoom lens into a compact body. The next three, the EXILIM EX-H15, EX-Z2000, and EX-Z550, all feature Casio’s unique Dynamic PhotoTM function that lets users cut out images of a moving subject and paste them on other moving images right on the camera.
The leading models of this lineup, the EX-FH100 and EX-H15, are 10X optical zoom cameras, and while the EX-FH100 makes the most of Casio’s unsurpassed high-speed burst shooting, the other three feature high-speed image processing technology — not only to improve image quality, which has always been a key element of camera performance, but also to offer users entirely new ways of enjoying photography.
HIGH SPEED EXILIM EX-FH100
This 10.1 effective megapixel high-speed digital camera boasts a wide-angle 24 mm 10X optical zoom lens in a compact body that makes it easy to carry anywhere. It also gives users a maximum burst rate of 40 shots per second for still images (maximum image size of 9.0 megapixels and maximum shooting capacity of 30 shots) that can now be used to photograph distant subjects thanks to the high-power zoom. It also enables up to 1,000 fps high-speed movie recording that captures motion that is ordinarily too fast for the human eye to see.
The EX-FH100 allows users ranging from advanced amateur photographers to beginners to enjoy high-speed burst shooting. It is equipped with a mode dial that enables manual exposure burst shooting and also has a mode that makes high-speed burst shooting easy, a feature that sets the burst shooting speed to the optimal rate just by selecting the type of scene. With this model, Casio also achieves low-noise, high-quality photography even in dim indoor lighting by using a highly sensitive CMOS sensor.
EXILIM EX-H15 / EX-Z2000 / EX-Z550
These three models are all 14.1 effective megapixel high-performance digital cameras driven by Casio's newly developed EXILIM Engine 5.0. Great advancements have been achieved in the Dynamic Photo function, which enables users to cut out images of a moving subject and paste them on a different still image that acts as a background. With these powerful new cameras, moving images can be combined not only on a still image but also on other moving images. This new capability increases the power of expression of images even more than before. Going further, these models not only increase the "fun of creating images," but also increase the "fun of sharing images" by, for instance, making it easy to upload composite moving images to YouTube™ using the included software or post them to a blog.
The three cameras also come with Premium Auto, which is a state-of-the-art, fully automatic function that enables users to take beautiful photos just by pushing the shutter button. Premium Auto automatically adjusts to achieve optimal image quality by discerning the point of focus and the type of scene, whether a night scene, a backlit scene, or a sunset. It processes the image according to the details in the frame, for instance, by making different corrections for human subjects and background. In addition, the leading model, EX-H15, features 10X optical zoom.
