CASIO increases its EXILIM range, by announcing
even smaller models.
additions to the EXILIM range are both 10% smaller than
CASIO Electronics Co.
Ltd has announced two new additions to its award winning*
EXILIM range of digital cameras – the EX-S20 and EX-M20.
The new EXILIM EX-S20
and EX-M20 models are 10% smaller than their predecessors
with no sacrifice to function, and retain a resolution of
2.0 million effective pixels. A number of added features
such as the enhanced movie recording facility of up to 60
seconds, extended battery life of 85% over previous
models, and the new scratch resistant acrylic panel
monitor (LCD), to name but a few, re-emphasize EXILIM as
the perfect partner to take anywhere, anytime.
The EXILIM EX-S20 and
EX-M20 are a mere 11.3 mm thick, 83mm wide and 53mm high.
Their stylish stainless steel cases resist de-colouration
and are finished to a high gloss using CASIO’s ‘Ex Fine
Blast Treatment’. Furthermore, a new lens protection cover
has been added to help protect the lens from impact and
incorporate a 1.6” TFT LCD screen with a digital
interface, which produces vivid and clear images.
Benefiting from CASIO’s original design technology, the
cameras also feature a new macro shooting function which
allows images to be taken from as little as 30cm away,
making the EX-S20 and EX-M20 the first fixed–focus EXILIM
models to be equipped with macro capabilities. The ability
to record short movies, a major feature of its
predecessors, has been improved upon by increasing the
length of clips to up to 60 seconds. Due to its built in
microphone and speaker, the EX-M20 enables users to
capture movies with sound, as well as adding sound clips
to individual pictures.
The EX-S20 and
EX-M20 also incorporate CASIO’s famous ‘BESTSHOT’
function, enabling users to set-up the camera for
pre-defined scenarios. Once a scenarios has been chosen,
such as portrait, scenery or night, users can then simply
‘point and shoot’, enabling even novices to capture
perfect images every time. Both cameras have an internal
memory of 10MB for storing images, this capacity can be
increased by inserting a SD or MMC card into the EXILIM’s
external memory slot.
The EX-S20 will retail
at £199.99 and the EX-M20 at £249.99. Both are available
from Casio@Carnaby (020 - 7437 - 1441) and at all good
digital camera retailers from October 2003.
The European Imaging & Sound Association (EISA) named the
EXILIM EX-Z3 Digital Mini Camera of the year 2003 / 2004
at the 2003 IFA fair in Berlin
