The EX-Z3 is a new model in Casio's acclaimed EXILIM range of card-sized LCD digital cameras. The new EXILIM EX-Z3 is the perfect camera for anyone with an appreciation of style, design and great functionality. With a resolution of 3.2 million pixels, the EX-Z3 is packed with new features and technical wizardry retaining many of the original features that have made EXILIM so popular there are now several significant added features. Defying the petite size of the camera, the EX-Z3 is the first EXILIM model to feature an in-built, high-performance 3x optical zoom lens; in addition to a 4x digital zoom. A new type of 3 segment telescopic zoom mechanism and stack MCM chip mounting technique enables the EX-Z3 to retain the distinctive EXILIM 'credit card size' height and width. The new EX-Z3 is a mere 22.9 mm at its widest point and only 19.7 mm at its thinnest.
The EX-Z3 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 viewing 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-Z3. Users can now record up to 30-second clips of video with accompanying sound. The EX-Z3 even features Casio's quick response feature that has become an USP for all its digital cameras. Casio's unique technology enables the camera to power up and be available to shoot in just over a second. 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-Z3. With twenty-one 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.
