Click on the EX-S100 for a QTVR tour
The Casio Exilim EX-S100 was developed to be the flagship of the Exilim "S" series, and as such, embodies all the brand concepts. Key features of the EX-S100 include a 3.2-megapixel CCD image sensor, use of the world’s first transparent ceramic lens in an ultra-slim 2.8X optical zoom lens unit, and Casio’s proprietary Exilim Engine, an ultra-compact image processing LSI module that provides greater image quality, robust performance, and low power consumption – all within an extremely slim and compact body package. As a result, the EX-S100 is the world’s smallest optical zoom-equipped digital camera, with a volume of just 79 cc and very compact measurements of 3.46" x 2.24". Moreover, it is only .66" thick, and just .56" at the thinnest point.
It also features a stainless steel body, a hallmark of the Exilim series, which has been polished to a brilliant shine. It is created entirely of metal (with the exception of the battery/memory door and buttons) for a true feeling of high quality. The front of the camera features a stylish theme of circular patterns that highlight the shape of the lens, while the back of the unit features a more square look that matches the large 2.0-inch LCD screen. In keeping with the distinctive form of the other models in this series, the lens area itself protrudes slightly from the body of the camera.
Its 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 23 sample scenes built in, or you can custom build you own scene with the Register User Scene function.
The EX-S100 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, and you can even have a specific image appear when an alarm time is reached.
In addition to its 9.3MB of built-in Flash Memory, the EX-S100 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 the
built-in memory or vise versa.
