What a brilliant camera this is. It's very easy to use and takes superb pictures. It has so many features and although I have had mine now for almost two years I must admit that I was a little afraid to try them all out, (due to my age). I just wish that I had more confidence in the early days. However I am now enjoying my camera and have taken some great pictures with it. It's a pleasure to use and so slim and small that it fits into my handbag nicely. For the men, well it would fit into your pocket and you wouldn't even know it was there
This EXILIM ZOOM model incorporates the 'EXILIM Engine', a newly developed compact image-processing module with a 3 layer Stack MCM, which achieves high picture quality and quick response using a 1.8V low-power system. This makes the camera's compact dimensions possible and at the same time have a battery life 2.5 times that of previous models, it also enables users a to capture stunning 360 photos a single battery charge. Thanks to the EX-Z30's unrivalled processing speed, streamed movie clips with sound can also be captured, compared with previous models limit of 30 or 60 second clips. Budding moviemakers can now capture memorable events and the only limitation is the capacity of their memory card.
When photos need to be taken in a hurry, the EXILIM ZOOM model uses Auto Pan Focus mode with one rapid push of the shutter button, removing the need to wait for auto focus, and capturing pin sharp fast moving targets. In combination with the approximate 1.6-second high-speed start up time and approximate 0.01-second release time lag, the features of these cameras allow for even faster, more satisfying photography. The camera has 21 built-in BESTSHOT scenes. Selecting a BESTSHOT scene automatically changes the setup of the camera to the setting required to record an image similar to the sample scene.
Other impressive features include the large 2.0-inch TFT LCD screen and the Direct On function for one-touch record and play modes. In addition to being USB DIRECT-PRINT compliant for direct connection to printers, the EX-Z30 is compatible with the PictBridge and PIM II standards. A combination of outstanding design, portability and high performance has put the EXILIM ZOOM range at the forefront of the market trend for compact, stylish and thinner digital cameras and now CASIO have responded to the demand for a longer battery life.
