Diverse manual operating possibilities make the camera a semi-professional piece of equipment in a super-compact format. The 2.5-inch TFT colour display , which is almost three times brighter than its predecessor model with around 1,200 cd/m?, also provides the right perspective in the event of stronger light incidence. The inner values of the digital camera with 8.1 megapixels, 3x optical zoom and Anti Shake DSP convince straight away.
You will immediately notice the high-grade matt-brushed casing. The modern design is an eye-catcher and promises technical perfection. The EX-Z850 is equipped with the latest generation of the EXILIM engine, which guarantees up to 440 photos in combination with the Super Life Battery, a powerful lithium-ion rechargeable battery. The camera is ready for use in just 1 second and does not miss a motif with a shutter-release delay of only 0.005 seconds . The integrated Anti Shake DSP (Digital Signal Processor) electronically reduces camera shaking, which can be caused by possible trembling of the hands or movement by the object itself. Parallel to this, the Auto Macro function and Quick Shutter function ensure correct focusing.
Diverse BEST SHOT motif programs are available. This also includes the Revive Shot function, which allows a digital photographing of already developed photos. The function is especially practical for older photographs, as it brightens up faded colours using the Color Restoration technology and lets motifs look as good as new. The trapezoid correction automatically adjusts the picture, thus enabling them to be photographed directly out of the album without damaging them.
An additional highlight of the EX-Z850 is the Rapid Flash function, which photographs three photos with flash in succession in only one second. The digital camera also has a Soft Flash, which prevents overexposure in close-ups, and a High Power Flash for an optimal exposure of the motif even at a greater distance. Where it is usually the automatic settings that are in the foreground, with the EX-Z850 it is the diverse manual operating features that convince the trade experts. A fast change between the diverse camera functions is possible with Mode Dial.
The EX-Z850 delivery package includes Super Life Battery, docking station with mains adapter, USB cable, AV cable, extensive software on CD-ROM and hand carrying strap. A fast battery charger, portable AV cable for connecting the camera directly with the TV set, as well as camera bags and neck straps and additional accessories are available optionally in the latest EXILIM look.
The EXILIM Zoom EX-Z850 is available at retail since March 2006.
