Casio Exilim EX-S5
PMA 2010 Report
Casio is proud to release the Casio Exilim EX-S5, a digital camera with a compact body based on a new design concept, which makes high-quality photographic functionality simpler to use than ever before. Designed to fit the concept of “Sleek & Sturdy,” the Casio S5 has a compact form, measuring just 3.8” wide x 2.2” high x .7” thin. The edging that frames the body presents a light, casual feel, but at the same time gives the user the sense that this digital camera is tough and reliable. In addition, the camera color is not limited to a single hue. Rather, the control panel, frame, and rear casing boast contrasting colors, presenting a whole new idea in camera color schemes.
10 Megapixel Casio Exilim EX-S5
In addition to offering the ability to reproduce a detailed image of the subject, the Casio Exilim S5 is very responsive and easy to operate. The camera has an effective 10.1-megapixel resolution, and delivers excellent performance. Images taken at high resolution can be enjoyed as beautiful photographs whether printed large or cropped before printing. The Exilim EX-S5 digital camera features an easy-to-see widescreen 2.7-inch LCD monitor. Shooting information is shown in an “operating panel” on the right hand side of the screen, which makes it easy to quickly change camera settings while shooting.
Casio EX-S5 Widescreen movie recording
Just by pressing the movie button, widescreen movies can be recorded with an aspect ratio of 16:9. The camera also offers YouTube Capture Mode, which records and saves movies at the ideal settings for the world’s largest video sharing site, YouTube. Recorded video can be easily uploaded to YouTube using the special included computer software.
Casio Exilim S5 features customizable photo frames
As well as the rectangular focusing frame usually displayed on the LCD monitor, users can choose designs such as a heart or a butterfly for the frame design. When the camera is correctly focused, a beautiful heart can be displayed, and when correct focus is not achieved the heart pattern breaks up. This makes it easy to ensure correct focus, and it is fun, too. Menu screens can be freely selected from a total of six colors - black, chocolate, cinnamon, rose, sky blue and olive green.
