With the new EX-ZR1000 Casio has succeeded in developing a compact digital camera that elegantly perpetuates all the moments that the user wants to capture. The development goal was "Triple Zero" where Casio has managed to create a new Exilim Engine HS system that virtually eliminates the time delays, focus problems and blurring caused by camera shake. With this new product is the third generation High Speed Exilim born.
