Casio has launched another camera designed for taking selfies a few months after the Exilim TR50, one which features a hidden camera lens. The Exilim MR1, also known as the "Kawaii Selfie by Mirror Camera," hides a 14-megapixel sensor with a 21mm wide-angle lens behind a large curved mirror on the front of the device, allowing the user to accurately frame themselves for their self portrait shot.
Casio has just launched a new compact camera in its EXILIM range. The EX-ZR800 uses a similar 16.1-megapixel sensor to earlier versions, as well as the EXILIM engine for image processing, but this time increases the optical zoom from 12.5x to 18x, and introduces five stop, five axis image stabilization for clearer photographs.
Casio has announced several new EXILIM compact cameras. The flagship model is the EX-ZR200, a 16.1 megapixel compact which uses a 12.5x optical zoom lens, and supports 1080p video recording. Light sensitivity ranges from ISO 80 to 3200, and the camera also includes features such as Rapid Shutter and Premium AUTO PRO modes, the latter automatically enabling the likes of HDR, night scene, and anti-shake functions as needed.
Casio in Japan on Monday introduced two new digital cameras, including the Exilim EX-Z2300 and the EX-ZR10. The Z2300 is less advanced of the two, getting a 14.1-megapixel sensor along with a 3-inch, 960x480 LCD. Its lens has a 5x optical zoom and images are stored on either 34.9MB of built-in space or SDHC cards.
Casio grew its Exilim Zoom range by two today with both high-end and low-end models. At the top, the EX-H20G is its first with a full GPS system to geotag shots. The system takes a hybrid approach with both a true GPS receiver as well as motion sensors to estimate the position based on how far the photographer has moved from the last known position.
Casio has now brought two point and shoot Exilim cameras it first introduced at the start of August to North America. The Card EX-S200 and Zoom EX-Z800 share Exilim Engine 5.0 and have 14.1-megapixel sensors as well as the ability to record 720p HD videos. The 27mm wide angle lenses on either have 4X optical zoom.
Casio today launched two new Exilim point-and-shoots with relatively traditional designs but raising the company's standards for basic cameras. The slimmer EX-S200 and the thicker EX-Z800 both capture at 14 megapixels with 4X optical lenses. Both use their creator's newer Exilim Engine 5.0 processing and support 720p video.
Casio saved two compact camera unveilings for its PMA launch. The Exilim EX-S7 serves as a relatively entry-level 12-megapixel model with a 3X lens and no image stabilization. Its chief addition is 720p video recording with a dedicated capture button.
Casio today added a new category to its Exilim cameras tailored just to ruggedized models. The Exilim G series is headed up by the EX-G1 and claims the title of the thinnest toughened camera: it measures just 0.78 inches but can survive drops of 7 feet and is both dustproof as well as waterproof at depths of up to 10 feet for up to an hour. Winter travelers can also use it as it operates in temperatures as low as 14F (-10C).
Casio on Monday upgraded two of its key Exilim cameras to focus on low-light image quality. The EX-FH25 superzoom and EX-FC150 compact both have backlit CMOS sensors borrowed from the Sony TX1 and can take in more light, improving the detail both for night scenes as well as portraits of backlit subjects. Both cameras accordingly have dedicated scene modes.
