DIWA AwardsCasio EXILIM Pro EX-P505 awarded DIWA Silver : DIWA (Digital Imaging Websites Association), a world-wide organisation of collaborating websites, today announces a DIWA Silver Award to the Casio EXILIM EX-P505 digital compact camera. The reviewers were impressed to see how Casio’s engineers have managed to adapt the credit card size symbolising the EXILIM concept, yet maintaining the professional SLR look as well as including a multitude of features normally found in much larger cameras. Most surprisingly is its powerful and high quality 5x optical zoom lens with focal lengths comparable to 38-190 mm in a 35 mm film camera, including macro as close as 1 cm, 7-points auto focus as well as an option for manual focus.

The EX-P505 also delivers fast start-up, auto focus and playback function, virtually instant shutter release response, 5 Megapixel resolution for 30x40 cm (12x16”) photo quality prints, a large movable 2-inch (5.1 cm) LCD screen, fully automatic and manual controls and tailor made Best Shot programs optimized for 22 different scene types. The EX-P505 also introduces stereo sound to movie recording, with VGA resolution and 30 fps in the high quality MPEG-4 format.

DIWA - Kai Thon
Kai Thon, DIWA's test manager comments: "No other camera combines compactness and high quality features like the Casio EXILIM EX-P505. Aimed at an audience in search of a handy, user friendly camera with extended optical zoom capabilities, excellent movie functions and a multitude of creative options through manual override, the EX-P505 is a top shelf selection. Still, its price is pleasantly modest."

DIWA - Experts conclusions

Movie enthusiasts can enjoy ingenious features like Past Movie, Short Movie, Movie Edit and Movie Print functions, compatible with the easy-to-use PictBridge standard via a USB 2.0 High-Speed interface.

Casio EXILIM Pro EX-P505 features
Other high scoring details are the 7-point auto focus system with auto or manual selection, the efficient pop-up flash with Flash Assist function, the powerful Super Life rechargeable battery pack, the foldable swivel LCD screen, the unique EX quick menu and Icon Help, the comfortable, secure grip with good camera balance, the EXILIM Engine high-speed image processor and last, but not least, a surprisingly budget-friendly price.
