CASIO Introduces New Ultra-Slim EXILIM CARD Digital Camera That Takes DivX Movies
Norderstedt, June 19, 2006 – CASIO EUROPE GmbH and its parent company, CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD., have announced the release of the EXILIM CARD EX-S600D, an ultra-slim, card-sized, high-resolution digital camera. This latest 6.0 megapixel addition to the stylish EXILIM digital camera series can also take high-quality movies in DivXÂ® format, a video compression technology developed by DivX, Inc. of the United States.
Fitting easily into a pocket, EXILIM CARD digital cameras are ready to go wherever their users go, so no one has to miss a once-in-a-lifetime photographic moment again. CASIO has previously released the EX-S600, which shoots 6.0 megapixel photos and takes high-quality movies in MPEG-4 format. The EX-S600 has been a hit among people who want a digital camera that makes it a snap to shoot both still pictures and movies.
The new EX-S600D has all the features of the EX-S600, but it can take movies in the DivXÂ® format. The new model will be sold primarily online in Europe.
DivX is a cutting-edge video compression technology which delivers high-quality video in reduced file sizes. It also allows users to save movies on CD-R and DVD-R computer media without the time-consuming hassle of having to convert file formats. And with a DivX-Certified DVD player, users can enjoy DivX movies on their TVs. By building DivX into the new EX-S600D, CASIO has expanded the world of movie-making fun, making it easier than ever before to give the gift of a special moment on DVD to friends and family.
This latest addition to the EXILIM CARD series offers all the popular features of its forerunner, the EX-S600. These include:
Anti Shake DSP for reducing photo blur due to shaky hands or moving subjects and movie blur due to shaky hands
Super Life Battery for about 300 still pictures (CIPA standard)
Revive Shot for refreshing the faded colors of old photographs, using digital technology to bring them back to life
Past Movie, which starts recording the movie 5 seconds before the Record button is pressed
The addition of the EX-S600D to the EXILIM CARD digital camera series makes it even more fun to shoot photos and movies, creating whole new possibilities in digital photography.
