Casio Introduces EXILIM®ZOOM EX-Z70, A Slim, Stylish Digital Camera with 7.2 Megapixels
Features Easy Mode for Simple Camera Setup
LONDON, UK June 22, 2006—CASIO ELECTRONICS CO. LTD. and its parent company, CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD., announced today the release of the EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z70, a new addition to its stylish series of EXILIM® digital cameras. This newest high resolution member of the EXILIM family delivers an effective 7.2 megapixels.
The EXILIM series has a reputation for transforming the digital camera market. Slim and stylish, packed with superior functionality, and astonishingly easy to use, EXILIM cameras combine the benefits of compact size, intuitive controls, large displays, and long battery life. The release of the new EX-Z70 complements the already available EX-Z60, a high-performance, 6.0 megapixel model released earlier this year. The EX-Z70 increases the resolution to 7.2 megapixels for even more detailed, beautiful photographs.
Like its forerunner, the EX-Z70 features Easy Mode, a user-friendly camera menu for beginners. Easy Mode simplifies the wide array of camera settings to three easy menus (image size, flash, and self-timer). With Easy Mode, users can make camera settings using simple onscreen descriptions, enabling even beginners to get started right away with the fun of photography. A combination of other powerful features ensures that beautiful photos are captured with just a touch of the shutter button:
- Anti Shake DSP for reducing photo blur due to shaky hands or moving subjects
- BEST SHOT function for getting optimal photo results simply by selecting a sample image of the type of scene the user wants to shoot
- Large 2.5 inch LCD for great visibility.
The camera’s lightweight aluminium body comes finished in either luxurious black or high quality silver. The top of the body is rounded to give it a soft look, and the overall design is a perfect blend of fashion and functionality. The EX-Z70 captures those priceless moments in a stylish package that puts superior image quality in the palm of every user’s hand.
The CASIO EXILIM EX-Z70 will be available in black from the beginning of July, and silver from the beginning of August, with a guide retail price of £229.99. To learn more, visit www.casio.co.uk
