Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z500 launched - EX-Z500 latest addition to Casio's Exilim range of cameras.
The Exilim Zoom EX-Z500 helps the user achieve sharp pictures by incorporating Anti-Shake DSP to reduce blurring caused by either camera shake or subject movement, and Auto Macro and Quick Shutter functions help to ensure that pictures are properly focused. With this camera you can achieve clear shots without the use of a flash, even in poor lighting conditions, by using the High Sensitivity mode. The Flash Assist mode can also be used to compensate for poorly lit areas of a shot.
The EX-Z500 features Direct On buttons, enabling fast start up (ready to take pictures in approximately 0.9 seconds) for quick shots and photo viewing, and a practical 31 scene Best Shot button for added convenience and ease of use.
Packaged in a slim (18.6mm at its thinnest point), stylish body the EX-Z500 is a highly portable camera which combines convenience with cutting-edge technology to provide the user with beautiful pictures to last a lifetime.
The Exilim EX-Z500 can also capture video, recording in VGA 30 frames per second. The Movie Editing option offers the user three ways (beginning, middle, end) to cut unwanted scenes from a movie, ensuring your home movies are exactly as you want them. Movies can be zoomed in during playback.
