Casio EX-S200 camera body
The Casio Exilim Card EX-S200 is a slim, high-quality, card-sized camera that is just 17.8 mm thick and only 14.9 mm at its thinnest part. The Casio EX-S200 sports a 4X optical zoom lens that starts at a 27 mm wide-angle view (35 mm film camera equivalent) and is capable of taking images with an effective resolution of 14.1 megapixels, while packing numerous other camera features such as Casio's CCD-shift image stabilization mechanism in a slim, compact and stylish body.
Casio Exilim EX-S200 Ultra-Slim digital card camera
The Casio Exilim EX-S200 uses a flat lens barrel and lens ring to achieve a thin and stylish card-sized body that smoothly combines contrasting geometric shapes. The new Casio camera was designed with an emphasis on functionality and simplicity, achieving a design that is at once elegant and understated. The Casio EX-S200 comes in five different colors: silver, orange, blue, black, and pink. The Quick Mode function powers on the camera with a press of the shutter button, previews a photo after shooting, and automatically powers down. Combined with the portability of the card-sized body, Quick Mode ensures that the user will never miss a photo opportunity.
Single Frame SR Zoom function on the Casio S200
The Casio Exilim camera uses super resolution technology to analyze and optimally process the respective areas of the photo that are contoured, textured or flat, delivering photos of exceptional quality and resolution. The Casio EX-S200 camera uses super resolution technology to respectively enhance edges, flat areas and textures when enlarging images, by analyzing and adjusting the contours in images and the relief of the subject. The Single Frame SR Zoom extends the maximum telephoto range of the optical zoom up to 1.5 times, while reducing image quality degradation. The Casio Exilim EX-S200 offers a 6X zoom range that maintains image quality for 14.1-megapixel high-resolution photography when using the optical zoom with the Single Frame SR Zoom.
Casio EX-S200 includes a Premium Auto function
Premium Auto enables the camera to automatically analyze the scene being photographed - including distinguishing night scenes, back lighting, a blue sky, green trees or a sunset - as well as sensing whether there is a face in the frame, the movement and position of the subject, and whether a tripod is being used. It simultaneously optimizes settings for exposure, ISO, sensitivity, focus location, photo blur correction, tonal range and color balance, and level of noise reduction. Images are analyzed pixel by pixel to apply different correction to people and backgrounds. Premium Auto delivers an advanced level of full auto photography, ensuring high quality photos with just a press of the shutter button.
Dynamic Photo function on the Casio Exilim S200
The Casio S200 camera offers Casio's original Dynamic Photo function, which makes it easy for users to create "moving photos" right on the camera by cutting moving subjects from the background in images taken with continuous shooting, and combining those images on a different still or moving image background. With Dynamic Photo on the new Casio camera, it is possible to make multiple characters move independently of each other against a background of moving images up to as long as 20 seconds. These capabilities not only make it more fun to create images, but also offer the fun of sharing images by making it easy to upload images to YouTube using the included software or post them to a blog.
Casio EX-S200 includes Art Shot and Art Effect functions
The Art Shot function makes use of the image processing technology in Exilim Engine 5.0 to create photos of scenery or human subjects that have the look of an oil painting, crayon, or a water color. With the Art Effect function, it is now possible to apply the same look as the Art Shot function to saved images.
