Casio release the EX-Z280 - New Casio family camera for every occasion.
With 12.1Mp, 4x optical zoom with mechanical image stabiliser, 26 mm wide-angle lens plus EXILIM Engine 4.0, the EX-Z280 is the ideal everyday companion, but comes into its own on exciting weekend trips and family holidays. This compact camera offers practical functions such as Dynamic Photo, Make-up Shot and face recognition that make it easier than ever to take high quality snapshots.
26 mm wide-angle lens
Whether for landscape photos, tourist sights or group pictures in confined spaces, the 26 mm wide-angle lens makes the EX-Z280 your perfect companion whatever the occasion. The 26 mm focal length allows you to capture a larger area and include more friends in a group photo from only a short distance away.
4X optical zoom with mechanical image stabiliser
Zoom in on your favourite moments: The 4x optical zoom can bring even the most distant subjects up close, while the automatic mechanical image stabiliser delivers sharp pictures, even when your subject is moving or you just can't hold the camera still.
The EX-Z280 CCD chip offers an amazing 12.1Mp. The camera delivers crystal-clear and extremely detailed photos. Even magnifying details and photos to poster size is not a problem — outstanding quality and no loss of image detail.
HD video recording
You can now film your videos in high-definition quality! Using the HD Movie Function in the EXILIM EX-Z280, you can make colourful and high-detail videos with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels – simply press the movie button and recording begins.
6.9 cm (2.7 inch) wide-screen TFT colour display
The large 6.9 cm (2.7in) wide-screen TFT colour display completes the design of the EX-Z280. It takes up the entire reverse of the camera, ensuring an exact view of all subjects, stored photos or films.
Dynamic Photo function
With the Dynamic Photo function, you can cut a subject out of a photo that has just been taken and use another photo as a background. You can even cut out several subjects from a serial picture recording and use these to create an image sequence in which only the subject moves and the background remains static.
New: You now have the option of changing the size of the subject and adapting it to the background. Dynamic Photo subjects can also be transformed into a video from the EX-Z280 itself — with no need for editing on a computer.
The EXILIM Zoom EX-Z280 also features a Make-up Mode Function for especially appealing portrait photographs. The outstanding image processing makes the skin on faces appear smoother and softens facial shadows caused by strong sunlight or illumination. You can select from twelve levels as desired – from minimum to maximum – and observe the effect on the TFT colour display while taking the photo.
