PMA 2003: Casio has today announced the new EXILIM EX-S3, an ultra-thin magnesium alloy bodied digital camera with a three megapixel CCD sensor and fixed focal length lens. The EX-S3 weighs just 72 g (2.5 g) and measures just 90 x 57 x 12 mm (3.5 x 2.2 x 0.5 in). Also up since the EX-S2 is the LCD monitor which has grown from 1.6" to a huge (considering the size of the camera) 2.0" TFT. The EX-S3 has 10 MB of internal RAM and also supports SD / MMC storage, it's powered by a supplied Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery and comes with a cradle.
Thin, card-size digital camera with large LCD monitor
High-speed startup and 0.01-second release time lag
CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD. is proud to announce the new EX-S3 digital camera that packs 3.2 million effective pixels and a 2.0-inch LCD monitor screen into an 11.7mm thin configuration. The EX-S3 is the latest addition to the EXILIM Series of card-size digital cameras.
The new EX-S3 is equipped with a 3.2 megapixel CCD for high-resolution, clear images, and a 2.0-inch LCD monitor screen for composing and viewing images. Everything comes packed in a thin and stylish design. A lens barrier protects the lens from impact and dust by opening and closing whenever the camera is turned on and off. The case is made of lightweight magnesium alloy, for a body that weighs a mere 72 grams. High-speed startup minimizes the time until the camera is ready to shoot after being turned on and a 0.01 release time lag records the image virtually as soon as you press the shutter release button. All of this means that you are able to record all those special moments whenever they happen.
Card-size stylish configuration
The stylish card-size configuration measures 89.5 (W) × 57 (H)
×11.7 (T) mm. Everything is packed into a 72-gram* lightweight magnesium
alloy case for take-along-anywhere portability.
*The weight is just 72g, the world lightest among 3 million class digital camera
Quick response ensures you get the images you want
Start up control processes*1 are optimized to ensure high-speed operation.
This plus the world's fastest*2 release time lag (0.01 second) helps to
ensure that you are able to capture that special moment as it happens.
*1. Start up time on recording mode : about 1.0 seconds (Under flash off, LCD on, no splash screen, using internal memory)
*2. As of March 2, 2003
Big 2.0-inch digital interface TFT LCD monitor screen
The big 2.0-inch LCD monitor screen (EX-S2/M2 has a 1.6-inch screen) helps to make image viewing easier and more enjoyable. A Photo Stand feature lets you view images while the camera is on its cradle. A Calendar function shows a full-month calendar with a thumbnail of the first image recorded on each date.
Slim and stylish card-size configuration
Hyper CCD-Lens integration (HCLi) incorporates both the lens and CCD
into a single module, and Stack MCM* (Multi-Chip Module) mounting makes
it possible to achieve a higher degree of mounting density in a smaller
space by stacking chips vertically. The lens is protected against impact
and dirt by a lens barrier that opens and closes automatically when the
camera is turned on and off.
* Requires 40% less space than the MCM area of the 2 megapixel EX-S2/M2.
Quick response captures those special moments
An original LSI system minimizes power up time and also achieves a release
time lag (time it takes for exposure to start after the shutter release
button is pressed) of only 0.01 second*
* Monitor screen and flash turned off.
Big 2.0-inch LCD monitor screen
The big 2.0-inch TFT LCD monitor screen of the EX-S3 features a digital interface for clearer display images. The monitor screen can be used to arrange images, and a collection of display features help to make image viewing simpler and more fun than ever before.
Photo Stand Feature
Placing the EX-S3 onto its cradle and pressing the Photo button starts a slideshow of images currently in image memory. You can even set up the camera to display the images you want whenever it is placed on the cradle.
Each date of the full month calendar screen shows a thumbnail of the first image recorded on each date. This visual diary of images makes it possible for you to quickly search for and locate the image you want.
High-resolution, high-sensitivity CCD for clear images
3.2 million effective pixels and a high-resolution, high-sensitivity 1/1.8-inch progressive CCD enhance flesh tones, and capture rich and vibrant natural colors. Images virtually come alive with beautiful clarity.
Best Shot Mode for instant setups
The Best Shot Mode provides optimum camera setups in an instant. Simply select the sample scene that is similar to the image you want to record, and the camera's exposure compensation, white balance, and other settings are configured accordingly. There are a total of 15 sample scenes built in, including "Coupling Shot" and "Pre Shot."
When there are only two people present, Person A composes the image of Person B against a background and presses the shutter release. This freezes the image on the monitor screen. Then they switch places, and Person B composes the final image now with Person A included. The final recorded image shows both Person A and Person B, as if the were both standing in front of the camera.
With Pre Shot, you compose the background you want and press the shutter release. This freezes the background image on the monitor screen. Then you can ask someone else to record your image, using the frozen background as a composition guide. The final recorded image shows you against the background you want.
The Triple Self-timer records three consecutive shots with a single shutter release button operation. Then you can select the best of the three and keep it.
Useful World Time and Alarm functions
World Time lets you select one of 162 cities in 32 time zones around the world as your home time. When traveling to another time zone, simply select the applicable city, and time and date settings are adjusted automatically. A total of three independent alarms help to make sure you are on time all the time. You can even have a specific image appear when an alarm time is reached.
Automatic image transfer to a computer with the press of the cradle's USB button
Simply connect the cradle to your computer, place the EX-S3 onto the cradle, and press the cradle's USB button, and PhotoLoader automatically transfers all JPEG and AVI files in image memory to the computer.
Photohands provides you with image editing capabilities for color, contrast, brightness, and other parameters. To start up Photohands, simply click the Photo Loader print button.

The EX-S3 stores images in a Web browser-viewable that allows you to browse images in an album format. The album feature uses HTML format, which means you can incorporate an album directly into a Web site, and even print directly from the album.
SD/MMC memory card slot
In addition to its 10MB of built-in Flash Memory, the EX-S3 also supports use of thin, compact SD memory cards and MMC cards (not included). An easy operation copies images between a memory card and built-in memory.
Favorites folder keeps important images private
320×240 size images can be copied to a Favorites folder located in camera built-in memory. Images in the Favorites folder do not display during normal image playback, which means you can keep your personal images private when carrying them around in camera memory.
You can assign one functions (recording mode, white balance, flash, etc.) each to the left-right and up-down operations of the control button. Once you do, you can perform the assigned function using the control button without going through the display menus.
ExifPrint (Exif 2.2) and PRINT Image Matching II compliant
ExifPrint (Exif 2.2) and PRINT Image Matching II support helps to make printed images look better than ever before.
EPSON "USB DIRECT-PRINT" compliant
