Casio reveals compact cameras with smart AF

updated 08:00 am EDT, Tue August 18, 2009

Casio Exilim Z450 and Z90

Casio this morning upgraded its Exilim Zoom compacts with two new models that focus on software, not hardware. The EX-Z450 and EX-Z90 both have an Intelligent AF addition that can recognize many objects in a scene, not just humans, and automatically tune both focus and exposure to capture what it believes is the right subject. They also have a new Dynamic Photo compositing mode that can cut out a moving subject and put it in another shot by taking a single photo with a solid-hued background.

Of the two, the EX-Z450 is the more advanced with a 4X zoom, 28mm wide-angle lens paired with a sensor-shift image stabilizer. It shoots at the by now common 12 megapixels but has some of Casio's better scene modes, including a landscape mode and a makeup mode that softens the detail around humans' faces. The EX-Z90 is simpler with the same resolution but a basic 3X lens. Both can capture video at up to 720p at 24 frames per second.

Casio ships both cameras at the start of October and will provide the EX-Z450 only in a champagne color for $200. The EX-Z90 will cost less at $150 and should come in black, pink and silver.
