In addition to a CCD-shift image stabilization mechanism, the Casio EX-Z450 features a Landscape Mode for taking enhanced scenery shots, and a Makeup Mode that enhances the beauty of a person’s face.

Casio Exilim Z450 lens & LCD monitor
The stylish Casio EX-Z450 digital camera features a large 3.0-inch LCD monitor with 230,400 dots of high resolution, as well as a lens ranging from 28-mm wide angle (35 mm film camera equivalent) all the way to 4X optical zoom. Its advanced base performance is supported by a CCD-shift image stabilization mechanism, and longer battery life lasting about 550 shots on a single full charge.
Casio EX-Z450 features Intelligent AF
New to the Casio Exilim lineup is the Intelligent AF feature which, in addition to the usual face detection technology, automatically detects non-human photo subjects in the whole composition and determines the focus and exposure area. By simply pointing the Casio Exilim Z450 at a desired shot, Intelligent AF ensures a focused, crisp picture without an out-of-focus subject. Taking pictures of your family pet or even beautiful scenery can be done in a snap, utilizing Intelligent AF to help minimize the number of photos that need to be taken to get a perfect picture. Thanks to the high-speed image processing technology and image analysis technology of the Exilim Engine 4.0, users can enjoy taking quality photographs with ease.
Casio EX-Z450 camera offers Dynamic Photo feature
Further advancements have been achieved for Dynamic Photo, which enables users of the Casio Z450 to cut out images of a moving subject and combine them with a different still image. In the past, it was necessary to take photos twice in order to cut out the moving subject, but now a moving subject can be cropped from a single shot, as long as the background is flat and in one color.
