Click on the EX-S3 for a QTVR tour
Casio's EXILIM EX-S3 digital camera packs a high resolution 3.2 million effective pixels imager, lens and a 2-inch color LCD monitor into an .46 inch thin body. The EX-S3 is the latest addition to the EXILIM Series of card-sized digital cameras with an MSRP of just $349.99.
The EX-S3's stylish case is made of lightweight magnesium alloy and weighs a mere 2.54 oz (without battery). The camera is ready to shoot almost instantly after being turned on and a 0.01 sec. release time lag records the image as soon as you press the shutter button. An automatic lens barrier protects the lens from impact and dust by opening and closing whenever the camera is turned on and off.
The big 2.0-inch TFT LCD monitor screen of the EX-S3 features a digital interface for a clearer display of images and makes image viewing easier and more enjoyable. The monitor screen can be used to arrange images, and a collection of display features help to make image viewing simpler and more fun than ever before.
The Best Shot Mode provides optimum camera setups in an instant. Simply select the sample scene that is similar to the image you want to record and the camera's exposure compensation, white balance, and other settings are configured accordingly. There are a total of 15 sample scenes built in, including "Coupling Shot" and "Pre Shot."
The EX-S3 stores images in a Web browser-viewable format that allows you to
browse images in an album format. The album feature uses HTML format, which
means you can incorporate an album directly into a web site and even print
directly from the album.
World Time lets you select one of 162 cities in 32 time zones around the world as your home time. When traveling to another time zone, simply select the applicable city, and time and date settings are adjusted automatically. A total of three independent alarms help to make sure you are on time, all the time. You can even have a specific image appear when an alarm time is reached.
In addition to its 10MB of built-in Flash Memory, the EX-S3 also supports use of
thin, compact SD memory cards and MMC cards (optional and sold separately).
An easy operation copies images between a memory card and built-in memory.
