The EX-S3 is a new model in Casio's acclaimed EXILIM range of card-sized LCD digital cameras. Its unique design and stylish appearance, combined with advanced technology, has made the EXILIM range a great hit with style conscious consumers and celebrities. The EX-S3 retains many of the original features that have made EXILIM so popular, but packs a resolution of 3.2 million pixels and several significant added features. Crucially, the EX-S3 builds on the popularity of the EX-M2 by allowing users to attach sound to video clips. Despite the added features and increased resolution, the EX-S3 manages to retain it's distinctive EXILIM "credit card size" of 57 mm height, 89.5 mm length and 11.7 mm width, thanks to Casio's stack MCM mounting technique. At approximately 72 g in weight, it is also the lightest 3-megapixel digital camera.
The EX-S3 features Casio's own digital interface for clearer display images, with a large 2.0" TFT LCD that can be used both as a viewfinder for composing images, as well as for playback of your images instantly. The ability to integrate short movies with sound is a well-loved feature on the EX-M2 and, as such, has been incorporated into the EX-S3. Users can now record video clips up to 30 seconds long, with accompanying sound. The EX-S3 even features Casio's quick response feature that has become a trademark for all its digital cameras. Casio's unique technology enables the camera to power up and be available to shoot in just 0.9 seconds. Original Casio technology also enables a shutter release time lag of 0.01 second, resulting in almost instantaneous image capture after pressing the shutter release button.
A new cradle design allows the 2" LCD to face the user as images are being downloaded. The built-in Photo Stand feature, via one-button access, also enables users to view images saved in the memory on an "automatic slide show". Picture Reversal assumes that there is no need to flip your camera over when you want to share images with another person. Press a button and the camera flips the image for you. The camera will store and display images in date order on a unique calendar system, which lets you see which images you have taken and when, in a month to view format, providing a handy visual record of your activities. Casio's famous BEST-SHOT function has been extended to the EX-S3. With fifteen pre-programmed settings, quality images are almost guaranteed whatever the environment. Casio's "Coupling Shot", for instance, allows two subjects to be placed together in a single image, without the need to enlist the help of a passing local. The "Pre-Shot" scenario allows image guidelines, such as the background scenery, to be composed and captured before a final image is stored in the memory.
