Digital Cameras at Casio EuropeCasio QV-R52 "Black Metal"

The new QV-R52 from CASIO is irresistible in the ever-popular trend colour black. Just like its sister in the silver metal body, the digital camera is equipped with 5.0 megapixels and 3x optical zoom. With the Direct On function the little black wonder is ready for use in only 1 second* and is ideal for every snapshot thanks to its shutter release time lag of only 0.01 second**.

Motifs can be easily viewed on the large 2-inch TFT colour display. The compact*** camera's simple menu guide makes child's play out of photography: 21 CASIO typical BESTSHOT functions offer pre-recorded scenes for different photo situations. In addition, they can also be supplemented by the user's own motif programs. The integrated flash with red eye-reduction also provides fantastic photos in those moments of low light intensity. The features of the ultra light 168 g**** QV-R52 are completed by self-timer, Macro function, automatic calendar and world time, as well as alarm with picture and sound function. The camera's almost 9.7 MB internal memory can be increased using commercially available SD/MMC cards. Despite all this functional diversity, CASIO's own electronics enable a considerable reduction in the power consumption, thus giving the camera staying power over long periods.

The new digital camera QV-R52 in black from CASIO is available at retail from April 2005. The camera comes complete with a hand carrier strap, a USB cable as well as extensive software on CD-ROM. Camera bags and the AC-adapter AD-C30 are optional available.

Casio EXILIM Zoom EX-Z57 "Black Metal"

The new EXILIM Zoom EX-Z57 "Black Metal" in its black aluminium body feels good in the hand. The 2.7-inch TFT colour display, which can be comfortably set to two brightness levels, is an immediate eye-catcher. 5.0 megapixels and 3x optical zoom make the small digital camera a power package for any photo situation.

Thanks to its SUPER LIFE battery, the EX-Z57 "Black Metal" is extremely powerful. The black-compact takes up to 400 pictures1 after only one charging of the SUPER LIFE battery. It also impresses with user-friendly elements like the Auto Macro function, an integrated 4-function flash with red eye-reduction and the Flash Assist function. Various pre-recorded scenes are available with CASIO's typical BESTSHOT function for all different kinds of picture situations, such as portrait or retro. Additionally, the lifestyle photographer can expand already existing motif programs with his very own BESTSHOT scenes. Hobby directors discover their talent for films with the Movie function and can record movies with sound without time limit2. The internal 9.3 MB flash memory can be increased to any size with commercially available SD/MMC cards.

The EX-Z57 "Black Metal" convinces with innovative technology and accompanying USB docking station. This connects the camera to the PC, transfers the picture data to the computer or charges up the powerful SUPER LIFE battery. The black multi-talent with the large display is therefore becoming a real "must" for design-lovers. Besides the SUPER LIFE battery and docking station the camera comes complete with USB cable, extensive software on CD-ROM and hand carrier-straps. A mobile charger, powerful lithium-ion storage battery (NP-40), various camera bags and other accessories are optional available.
