The EX-ZR200 also delivers state-of-the-art auto shooting with Premium AUTO PRO mode, which ensures beautiful photos. With Premium AUTO PRO, the camera automatically merges images taken with high-speed continuous shooting according to the shooting conditions to dramatically improve final image quality in challenging situations such as backlighting, night scenes and zoom shooting.
The camera also comes with Casio’s HDR-ART function, which creates impressive artistic images with nothing more than a press of the shutter button. The Blurred Background function processes images to make a soft background that accentuates the subject, and the manual shooting function gives users control over shooting parameters. As one expects from a flagship EXILIM camera, the EX-ZR200 delivers advanced ease of use that raises that bar for functionality in a compact digital camera.
The EX-ZR200 features a wide-angle 24 mm, 12.5x optical zoom lens. The lens boasts macro focusing down to one centimeter and Multi Frame SR Zoom technology, which maintains refined image quality to a maximum zoom of 25x. Casio’s Wide Shot technology offers up to 14 mm wide-angle shooting (35mm film equivalent), for capturing powerful, super-wide-angle shots. These features make the camera capable of shooting a broad range of scenes.
