Casio today announced the release of the new EXILIM® EX-ZR200 compact digital camera. The new digital camera, boasting Casio's new Rapid Shutter feature, makes it easier than ever to shoot beautiful pictures.
Casio is a pioneer in the digital camera market, and the new EX-ZR200 introduces a whole new world for compact digital cameras. As the new flagship model in the EXILIM lineup, the EX-ZR200 uses Casio's own high-speed technology to achieve new heights in camera performance, effortlessly taking beautiful pictures at any time.
The camera also comes with Casio's HDR-ART function, which creates impressive artistic images with nothing more than a press of the shutter button. The Blurred Background function processes images to make a soft background that accentuates the subject, and the manual shooting function gives users control over shooting parameters. As one expects from a flagship EXILIM camera, the EX-ZR200 delivers advanced ease of use that raises that bar for functionality in a compact digital camera.
Main Features of the EX-ZR200
EXILIM ENGINE HS with high-speed shooting and high-speed image processing
Premium AUTO PRO function produces beautiful photos with just a press of the shutter button
The Premium AUTO PRO function incorporates all the features of Premium AUTO mode-which automatically analyzes the shooting scene to choose the best settings and perform image processing-while making it even better. Premium AUTO PRO can now automatically combine images from high-speed continuous shooting according to shooting conditions, to create gorgeous photos. Users can easily take sophisticated photos at the press of the shutter button, thanks to the automatic activation of functions such as HDR technology for high-contrast conditions, High Speed Night Scene mode for night shots, and High Speed Anti Shake for high-power zoom shooting.
HDR technology faithfully reproduces images as they really appear
With Casio's HDR technology, each press of the shutter button actually takes several shots at different exposures and instantly combines them into a single image with a high dynamic range. This minimizes over exposed or under exposed areas in the image, creating a photograph that captures all the rich tonal gradation of the scene just as it appears in real life. The HDR technology also reduces the blur caused by a subject's movements during continuous shooting, leaving only beautifully crisp, clear photographs.
HDR-ART creates artistic photographs
The EX-ZR200 features Casio's HDR-ART function for enabling anyone to create truly artistic photographs at the press of the shutter button, unlike anything possible with conventional cameras before. The function works by combining continuous shots with differing exposures and performing highly precise image analysis to locally change levels of contrast and color saturation. Users can select from three different processing levels of art effects. The HDR-ART function can also be applied to movies (only one level of art effect available), allowing them to produce dramatic movies from everyday scenes.
Blurred Background function lets users take impressive photographs like a single-lens reflex camera
Casio has employed its high-speed burst shooting technologies to create an original technique for processing the background scene of a shot like the soft blur effect attainable using a single-lens reflex camera, thereby accentuating the subject of the photo.
Scenes come alive in their full expansiveness with the Wide Shot function
The EX-ZR200 combines continuous shots taken with high-speed burst shooting when the user is moving the camera, enabling powerful super-wide-angle shots. Users can choose wide-angle shooting modes equivalent to 14 mm or 18 mm.
Casio's Multi Frame SR Zoom maintains refined image quality to a maximum zoom of 25x
The wide-angle 24 mm, 12.5x optical zoom lens offers zoom performance equivalent to a maximum of 25x optical zoom with Casio's Multi Frame SR Zoom, which actually combines a number of still images to maintain the image quality needed for high-resolution photography.
Users can enjoy producing high-resolution Full HD movies
The EX-ZR200 enables beautiful high-resolution Full HD movies. Even while shooting a movie, users can take still 16-megapixel high-resolution images with high-speed burst shooting using the Snapshot In Movie function, and can also use the optical zoom and continuous auto focus.
Mode dial for rapid access to shooting modes
The mode dial enables users to choose from 10 shooting modes, including scene modes and Premium AUTO PRO, Multi Frame SR Zoom and HDR modes.
