Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z1000

10.1 Megapixel Camera!

— May 2, 2006 — Tech
This week, CASIO announced the release of the EX-Z1000, the latest exciting addition to CASIO's stylish series of EXILIM ZOOM digital cameras. The EX-Z1000 captures images of remarkable quality for its very compact size, and its new wide-format Super Bright LCD display gives users the power to enjoy instant, high-impact images of their shots.

The new EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z1000 packs a powerful punch in a sleek, compact package. Small enough to be held in the palm of the hand, this 10.1 megapixel digital camera still captures super high-resolution images that reproduce crystal-clear even in very large sizes—perfect for printing or on-screen viewing of those priceless, once-in-a-lifetime shots. This new model is the first in the series to incorporate a large 2.8 inch, wide and bright LCD display. CASIO makes the most of this extra screen space to offer great new functions like simultaneous viewing of a wide angle and a telephoto shot, and a convenient right side set of icon controls.

High resolution 10.1 megapixel digital camera with large CCD

The EX-Z1000 has an effective 10.1 million pixels, powered by a large 1/1.8 inch format, high resolution CCD. Add the EXILIM Engine high-performance image processor, and the camera delivers highly expressive images and reproduces a wide tonal range.

Large 2.8 inch, wide and bright display

The EX-Z1000's LCD display is a large, crystal clear 2.8 inch monitor in an attractive wide format. This high-resolution, 230,400 pixel LCD displays images and data with outstanding clarity and fine detail. With a maximum brightness of 1200cd/m2, the EX-Z1000's wide and bright display makes viewing in bright outdoor light easier than ever before.

Since the moment of its debut in 2002, the EXILIM series has been transforming the digital camera market. EXILIM cameras are slim and stylish, packed with superior functionality, and astonishingly easy to use. Users appreciate EXILIM's unique combination of compact size, intuitive controls, large displays, and long battery life. And the series continues to break new ground, with the recent introduction of functions like Anti Shake DSP, which reduces blurring due to unsteady hands or moving subjects, and the Super Bright display.

Hiroshi Fujii, Managing Director of Casio Electronics Co. Ltd said; “The recent explosion in digital photography among the mass market is leading to an increased demand for greater detail within users image capture; primarily driven by users first experiences of digital cameras and the uptake of imaging software.“ He continued; “Creative photographers will find the sleek stainless steel EX-Z1000 a delight to use when seeking to capture their own view of the world. Thanks to a ground-breaking 10 million pixels, Anti Shake, an ISO 3200 BEST SHOT mode, and Super Life Battery, users can be assured that their images will match their memories.”
