Casio has today announced its latest slimline addition to the Exilm Card range in the form of the EX-S600, which boasts Anti-shake DSP mode to reduce blurring in moving subjects. Other novel features of this six megapixel camera include a new Best Shot mode called Revive Shot, which refreshes faded colors of old album photos. Aside from the resolution, a not-so-impressive 15cm macro mode, longer battery life and the extra scene mode, specification is pretty similar to the S500 launched in Europe in July this year. The EX-S600 is currently only available in Japan and other Asian markets. In comes in four colors: 'sparkle' silver, 'fiesta' orange, 'mistral' blue and 'luminous' gold.
CASIO’s EXILIM CARD Boasts Advanced Movie Recording Capability
New Digital Camera Reduces Camera Shake in Movies, Takes Quality Photos
October 24, 2005, Tokyo, Japan -- CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD. announced the release of the latest addition to its EXILIM digital camera series with the EXILIM CARD EX-S600, the next evolution in this popular line of ultra-slim card-sized high resolution digital cameras. In addition to 6 mega pixel photos, a major addition to this line is the EX-S600’s ability to reduce camera shake instantaneously when recording quality MPEG-4 movies.
The EX-S600’s ability to take state-of-the-art movies instantly and easily adds to the versatility and fun of this powerful and high quality digital camera. The EX-S600 fits conveniently in any pocket to go where ever you go, ready to quickly capture special moments. No matter how spontaneous the situation, the EXILIM engine’s Anti Shake DSP reduces blurring caused by shaky hands and/or moving subjects, and the Auto Macro and Quick Shutter functions ensure that photos are properly focused.
In addition to enhanced resolution, the EX-S600’s 3X zoom and increased battery life allowing up to 300 shots per battery charge provide significant photographic flexibility. The BEST SHOT menu includes the new Revive Shot, created specifically for taking digital pictures of old album photos. Revive Shot adjusts for obliquity as well as brightly refreshes faded colors. Whether framing a shot, reviewing images, or watching movies, everything is brighter when displayed on the adjustable 2.2 inch LCD—approximately twice as bright as previous models, making it ideal for outdoor use. Small enough to conveniently carry wherever you go, the EX-S600 has one-touch buttons that allow quick start up of the camera to view images and take pictures, as well as one for taking movies, all designed to quickly capture special moments. The EX-S600 connects easily to a TV or PC via the multi cradle, which also doubles as the battery charger.
The EX-S600 continues the EXILIM CARD tradition of offering cutting-edge technology packed into a small, slim, and stylish body. With high quality photos, advanced movie recording capabilities, and a tremendous range of remarkable functions, CASIO once again exceeds expectations by providing a conveniently portable means of preserving memories to be cherished for a lifetime.
