Casio releases Exilim HI-Zoom Compact Digital Camera

According to Casio, the heart of the new camera is the Exilim Engine 4.0, which delivers higher image quality and lower power consumption. The new Engine’s Multi-CPU is specifically designed for high-speed image processing.

The camera packs a 10x zoom lens with CCD-shift image stabilization and a 3-inch LCD into a body less than one-inch thick.

"The development of the ultra-wide angle 24mm continues Casio’s dedication to creating digital cameras that are packed with innovative features and new technology," says Toshiyuki Iguchi, senior general manager, Digital Imaging Division, at Casio America Inc. "This new feature gives our camera enthusiasts the opportunity to capture their extraordinary moments in a variety of shooting environments."

The Exilim Hi-Zoom EX-H10 also features an update of Casio’s Dynamic Photo function, which creates in-camera still and video image composites. Now, when a moving subject is cut out of a number of images and combined with a different still shot that forms the background, the size of the subject can be changed to suit the background image. Also, the Dynamic Photo video can easily be converted in-camera into a Motion JPEG movie file. Motion clip art graphics have also been added.

The new camera will begin shipping to retail in mid July. The EX-H10 will have an MSRP of $299.99 and will be available in black.
