The latest Casio Exilim EX-Z450 and EX-Z90 compact digital cameras are not only stylish and convenient to carry around, but they also claim good features and performance. One improved feature is the Dynamic photo which allows users to cut out images of a moving subject and combine them with a different still image.
While both cameras feature 12.1-megapixel sensor, the EX-Z450 has 4x optical zoom, ISO of up to 3200 and F2.6(W)~F7.0(W); the EX-Z90 has 3x optical zoom, ISO of up to 1600 and F3.1(W)~F5.6(W).
Casio Computer Co., Ltd., today announced the addition of two new models to the EXILIM® digital camera lineup, the EXILIM Zoom EX-Z450 and EXILIM Zoom EX-Z90. Both are equipped with Intelligent AF, a new function that can detect even a non-human photographic subject, which means it automatically determines the focus and exposure area. The new models also come with a CD-ROM containing graphics that can be used with Dynamic Photo™, a unique function for creating composite moving images. With the graphics and Dynamic Photo, users can easily create fun and dynamic images for animated electronic greeting cards and other purposes.
Intelligent AF automatically detects the intended subject
In addition to usual face detection, just by pointing the camera at a desired shot, Intelligent AF automatically detects non-human photo subjects in the whole composition and determines the focus and exposure area. So when taking a picture of a pet or even scenery, Intelligent AF can help minimize the number of photos that have an out-of-focus subject, thanks to the high-speed image processing technology and image analysis technology of the EXILIM Engine 4.0.
Dynamic Photo expands the possibilities for easy and fun image creation
Further advancements have been achieved for Dynamic Photo, which enables users to cut out images of a moving subject and combine them with a different still image. In the past, it was necessary to take photos twice*1 in order to cut out the moving subject, but now a moving subject can be cropped from a single shooting, as long as the background is flat and in one color. The new EXILIM models come with a CD-ROM containing a selection of more than 150 types*2 of graphics, including Animated Characters such as a cake or a firecracker. These can be added to still images, ideal for the creation of animated electronic greeting cards. The CD-ROM also contains the Dynamic Photo Manager software for PCs, which enables users to easily attach composite moving images to emails. Dynamic Photo offers endless possibilities for touching the hearts of family and friends.
*1. Capturing separate photos with and without the subject, while keeping the camera in the same position.
*2. Including still and moving graphics
This stylish model is a 12.1 effective megapixel digital camera boasting a wide-angle 28 mm 4X optical zoom lens (35 mm film camera equivalent). In addition to a CCD-shift image stabilization mechanism, the EX-Z450 features a Landscape Mode for taking more beautiful scenery shots, and a Makeup Mode that enhances the beauty of human faces.
With an effective resolution of 12.1 megapixels and a 3X optical zoom lens, the EX-Z90 offers advanced base performance and a wide range of functions. Compact enough to fit into the palm of a hand, the EX-Z90 has been designed to feel like a fashion accessory.
