Casio Exilim Z29
PMA 2010 Report
Casio introduces the latest addition to its stylish series of Exilim digital cameras, the Exilim Zoom EX-Z29. This newest member of the Exilim line features a stylish, slim and compact design to increase portability, and provides an improved 10.1 megapixels of image resolution with 3X optical zoom. The Casio Exilim Z29 stays true to the user-friendly features that have become standard to the Exilim Zoom series. The 2.7-inch wide LCD display enables users to easily navigate camera operations and enhance the review of images, while the 23 Best Shot Modes and face detection technology help users take high quality photos without having to adjust camera settings.
Casio Exilim EX-Z29 camera design
Designed to fit the concept of “Sleek & Sturdy,” the Casio Exilim Z9 has a compact form, measuring just 3.64” wide x 2.16” high x .91” thin. The edging that frames the Z9's body presents a light, casual feel, but at the same time gives the user the sense that the Exilim EX-Z9 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.
10.1 Megapixel Casio Exilim Z29
In addition to offering the ability to reproduce a detailed image of the subject, the Casio Z9 is very responsive and easy to operate. The Casio Exilim EX-Z9 digital 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 Casio EX-Z9 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 Z29 camera features
The Casio EX-Z29 comes loaded with other useful features including Anti-Shake DSP which reduces photo blur from shaky hands or moving subjects, allowing users to shoot images with ease and confidence. Easy Mode simplifies the camera settings to three easy menus (image size, flash and self timer). With Easy Mode, the Exilim Z9 is set to take great photos in every situation without having to check presets or accidentally making a wrong adjustment. Casio’s Face Detection Technology maintains a sharp focus and the correct exposure for the human face.
Casio EX-Z29 YouTube videos
Just by pressing the movie button, widescreen movies can be recorded with an aspect ratio of 16:9. The Casio Exilim Z9 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 EX-Z29 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 Casio Z29 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.
