CASIO Computer Co., Ltd., today announced the release of another groundbreaking digital camera, the EXILIM Hi-Zoom EX-H10. With a thin, compact body and a wide-angle 24mm, 10x optical zoom lens, this new model can also take 1,000 shots*1 on a single battery charge - making it the perfect travel companion.

Wide-angle 24 mm, 10X optical zoom lens
Only CASIO could find a way to pack a 10X optical zoom lens, large, 3.0-inch monitor and a CCD-shift image stabilization mechanism into such a slim, compact camera body, just 24.3 mm thin, convenient for travel. With wide-angle starting at 24 mm (35 mm film camera equivalent) all the way up to 10x telephoto zoom, the photographer is ready for any scene - from huge buildings and other wonders at tourist destinations to distant figures in a landscape.

1,000-shot long battery life
CASIO has reduced energy consumption by improving the circuitry and operational controls and designing a higher capacity battery to enable the user to take 1,000 shots on a single full charge. This provides a fantastic solution for people on the go. Now a delighted camera owner could take 100 shots every day on a 10 day holiday without ever needing to recharge, eliminating the need to bring a charger. The long-life battery gives users about 11 consecutive hours of viewing on a single charge.

New Landscape Mode
In addition to CASIO's popular Makeup Mode that creates beautiful pictures of people's faces, this new camera also features the new Landscape Mode for creating beautiful landscapes. Unlike earlier landscape photography modes, which enhance the saturation of an entire hue, users can now select between the Vivid Landscape option that uses image analysis to determine and vividly enhance only the most important colors in the landscape and the Mist Removal option that makes weather-affected misty scenes look clear and bright.

More advanced Dynamic Photo function
CASIO's original Dynamic Photo function, which creates composite moving images using the camera's own high-speed image processing technology, now does even more. When a moving subject is cut out of a number of images that have been shot and combined with a different still shot that forms the background, the size of the subject can be changed to suit the background image. Next, the Dynamic Photo thus created can easily be converted in-camera into a Motion JPEG movie file. Moreover, moving graphics such as hearts and bouquets are included so that users can have fun decorating their still images using the Dynamic Photo function. CASIO not only makes sure users have fun taking and viewing photos, but also provides great new ways for them to enjoy the fun of creating original images, right on the camera.
