The black EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z5 by CASIO
Norderstedt, April 2006 – The new EXILIM EX-Z5 is the perfect companion for the summer. With its matt-brushed, black surface it is a well-designed eye-catcher in every situation. At the same time the easy-to-handle digital camera convinces due to its simple operability and innovative EXILIM technologies. Users appreciate the 5 mega-pixel resolution with 3x optical zoom for fantastic photo quality, as well as the 2.5-inch TFT color display to view the photo motifs in comfort.
A large number of BEST SHOT motif programs, which can be easily activated via the BEST SHOT button, makes it easy to take photographs at selected moments. Beginners therefore also have the possibility of setting their digital camera specifically to outside motif conditions. The freely selectable Easy Mode prevents inadvertent adjustment of the technical settings and makes it easier than ever to take pictures. The DIRECT ON function rounds off the user-friendly operability of the EX-Z5.
The integrated Anti Shake DSP (Digital Signal Processor) electronically reduces the risk of camera shaking. The Auto Macro function, Quick Shutter function and multi auto focus also safeguard correct focusing. The innovative Revive Shot function complements the pallet of functions of the EX-Z5. Old and faded photos can be photographed directly out of the photo album and replenished by means of Color Restoration technology. Thanks to Casio’s own digital restoration including trapezium correction, photos shine resplendent in their new color gloss. The Rapid Flash function takes three pictures with flash in succession in only one second. Additional flash functions for beautiful photo results with little ambient light are the Flash Assist function and the 4-function flash with Red Eye Reduction and Soft Flash. The internal memory of the new EXILIM digital camera can be increased with commercially available SD-/MMC cards.
The EX-Z5 delivery package includes a lithium-ion storage battery (NP-20), USB cable, AV cable, extensive software on CD-ROM and a hand carrying-strap. USB docking station, camera bags, neck straps and other comprehensive accessories are available optionally in the latest EXILIM look.
The EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z5 is available from the end of May 2006.
