The Casio EXILIM EX-Z57 with extra large 2.7 inch display






PRESS SUMMARY

Casio EXILIM EX-Z57 product detailsFebruary 2005 - With its 2.7-inch TFT colour display, the EXILIM Zoom EX-Z57 catches the eye immediately. The particularly large display enables a true-to-detail view of all motifs and can be comfortably adjusted in two brightness settings in the event of unfavourable weather conditions. With 5.0 megapixels and 3x optical zoom, CASIO brings out the small digital in a very big way.

The EX-Z57 with SUPER LIFE battery is extremely powerful. After only charging the lithium-ion storage battery once, the power package can take up to approx. 400 pictures*. The digital camera also impresses with lots of user-friendly elements like the Auto Macro function, which switches back and forth independently from autofocus to macro mode as required. The integrated 4-function flash with red-eye reduction illuminates photo motifs if required. And should a picture nonetheless turn out too dark, the Flash Assist function mostly automatically brightens up photos where necessary. In the CASIO typical BESTSHOT function, different pre-recorded scenes for all different kinds of picture situations are offered to the lifestyle photographer. That way the camera also holds unusual motif programs, e.g. retro, ready for imaginative photo ideas in addition to the classic settings. The user can also supplement the already existing motif programs with self-produced BESTSHOT scenes. Even more creative scope is offered by the movie function, with which hobby directors discover their film talent and record movies with sound and without time limit**. The Icon Help function shows the EXILIM photographer the mode he is currently using. Consequently, the EX-Z57 in its elegant aluminium body has never been so easy to use. The picture data is stored on the internal approx. 9.3 MB flash memory, which can be increased as you like with commercially available SD/MMC cards.

Shape and function complement each other in the EXILIM Zoom EX-Z57. Not only the beautiful design, but also the innovative technology is convincing: the accompanying USB docking station produces the connection to the PC, transfers the picture data to the computer and charges the powerful storage battery. Together with the docking station, the multi-talent with the large display is a real eye-catcher that any design-lover is pleased to have standing on his desk. Besides the SUPER LIFE battery and docking station, the camera comes complete with USB cables, extensive software on CD-ROM and carrying strap. A mobile charger, a lithium-ion rechargeable battery (NP-40), diverse camera bags and other accessories are optionally available.

The EXILIM Zoom EX-Z57 is available at retail from the end of march 2005.
