Casio Introduces Second Model in Line of Stylish 10.1 Megapixel Digital Cameras
Best-in-class 7 shot/second continuous shutter Subject blur reduction and auto-tracking AF utilizing motion analysis technology
London, January 30, 2007 — Casio Electronics Co. Ltd. and its parent company Casio Computer Co. Ltd., announced the release of the EXILIM Zoom EX-Z1050, the latest addition to its stylish series of EXILIM® digital cameras. Featuring a newly developed, high-performance, image-processing module, Casio’s new EX-Z1050 makes it even easier to enjoy shooting super-high resolution, 10.1 megapixel images.
Last year, Casio released the revolutionary EXILIM Zoom EX-Z1000, the first digital camera in the world to deliver 10.1 megapixel resolution in a size that fits easily in the palm of the hand. The EX-Z1000 won acclaim for making it simpler than ever to capture images at a remarkably high resolution, and its trend-setting performance created a brand new market.
Casio developed the new EX-Z1050, as stylish and slim as any EXILIM, to enable an even greater variety of people to enjoy photography at the super high-resolution of 10.1 megapixels. At this amazing level of detail, photos print crystal-clear even in large sizes or when trimmed to show just part of the image. The EX-Z1050 is even smaller than the EX-Z1000, but features Casio’s generous new 2.6 inch Wide and Bright LCD display. The camera’s lightweight aluminum construction makes it a breeze to carry and gives it an unforgettable look.
The EX-Z1050 is more than just convenient, stylish and cool: this camera is a truly high-performance device. It is built with the highly sophisticated EXILIM Engine 2.0 — a high-performance, image-processing module that not only improves image quality, but also boosts performance by, for instance, delivering new motion analysis technology. This latest model in the EXILIM series also delivers best-in-class* high-speed, continuous shooting at 7 shots per second until memory is full, empowering users to capture every split second of an action-packed scene.
