Casio Exilim Z250 processes images
The new Casio Exilim Z250 is a high resolution model, and it boasts excellent resolving power, offering precise, smooth rendering of images. The image processing speed and power of Casio’s new engine make possible entirely new functions that deliver fantastic photos of people's faces, night scenes and other subjects that have challenged photographers for years. The Casio Z250 automatically detects and corrects for difficult situations, such as night scene photography where camera shake could be a problem, or backlit subjects where faces often come out too dark.
Casio EX-Z250 captures beautiful portraits
This all means that users get great, well-balanced photos of family and friends against any background with no more worry than it takes to press the shutter button. The Casio EX-Z250 digital camera also features a Makeup function that creates beautiful photographs of people's faces: high end image processing can smooth skin and soften facial shadows caused by sunlight. The photographer gets to choose to apply such image processing at one of twelve levels, from weak through strong, and can shoot while checking the results of the effects in the LCD monitor. At last, a camera that brings out all the beauty of the human face, creating images worthy of keeping forever as special memories.
Casio Exilim Engine 3.0
This is an image processing module that packages a new, dedicated high speed image processing CPU (central processing unit) with the high performance CPU used to date. Digital cameras are constantly developing and evolving new levels of "beautiful imagery" and "convenient shooting functions." This new module quickly processes complex images, making it possible for customers to shoot and view wonderful photos with simplicity and ease.
Casio Exilim EX-Z250 renders smooth images with less noise
The Casio Z250 is a high quality digital camera with excellent functionality that allows users to take beautiful pictures of people's faces and night scenes. Thanks to Casio’s original image processing technologies, this camera achieves an extremely precise, smooth rendering of high-resolution images, reducing a great deal of noise in pictures taken at high sensitivity levels. This is the result of Casio’s pursuit of the beautiful image quality that users expect from a camera with very high resolution.
Tele photo shooting and Night scenes on the Casio Z250
The lens zooms from 28mm to 112mm (35mm film camera equivalent). Users can enjoy a wide range of shooting options, from wide angle photography that is convenient when shooting large objects or many people in a small space, to telephoto shooting which brings distant subjects close. The Casio Exilim Z250 can automatically detect night situations where there would normally be camera shake if a tripod wasn't used. Users get clear, bright photographs of both people and night scenes as the camera compensates for camera shake.
Casio Exilim Z250 - Easy operation and LCD monitor
When blue skies are washed out, or when faces are dark because subjects have their backs to the light, this cameras is able to automatically detect such situations and select just the right balance between light and dark. Washed out and overly dark areas are controlled, allowing for a natural tonal range to be reproduced, so both people and backgrounds are evenly exposed. When users want to smooth facial skin, or reduce the depth of facial shadows in sunlight, etc., they can apply image processing from a relatively low level 1 right through to a high level 12, all the while checking the effect of the processing level chosen in the LCD monitor.
Casio Exilim EX-Z250 - Anti Shake DSP
Camera shake is compensated for by the mechanical movement of the imaging element in the camera. Of course, both cameras also incorporate Anti Shake DSP, which reduces photo blur due to moving subjects by raising the camera's sensitivity and allowing faster shutter speeds. The Casio EX-Z250 uses a large, clear 3.0 inch LCD monitor. The high contrast screen produces sharp, bright images that can be viewed easily from any angle, and the monitor's high brightness means that it can be easily viewed even when the surrounding light is bright.
