The Pro EX-P600 is Casio's latest addition to its growing family of Exilim series cameras. It's a compact, high-performance camera that combines a high-resolution 6-Megapixel effective imager, a Canon 4x optical zoom lens and a large two-inch color LCD, all housed in a lightweight, stylish and durable stainless steel body. Designed for both the beginner and advanced photographers, the EX-P600 offers an array of exposure modes and innovative features not found in other compact digital cameras.
The EX-P600 is ready to go within two seconds of pressing the power button and can capture the action at a blazing 3 frames per second. The shutter lag time is an amazing 0.01 seconds from auto focus lock. It can grow with your abilities, the Program Auto and Best Shot exposure modes allow anyone to take great pictures easily and more advanced users will appreciate the Shutter-speed priority, Aperture priority and full Manual exposure modes. Adjustable ISO sensitivity, white balance, sharpness, saturation, contrast, multiple metering and focus modes. JPEG and TIFF uncompressed image formats, Auto Bracketing of exposure, white balance and focus and Multi-Bracketing of color effects and contrast are just some of its advanced features.
Compose your images with the coupled optical viewfinder or use the bright and large 2-inch color LCD with its unique Ex Finder display. Casio has developed a graphical information overlay that gives you real-time display of the major recording settings. When in Shutter-speed or Aperture priority mode you can call up an on-screen aid that graphically explains the difference in fast and slow shutter speeds and open and closed apertures. And Casio's Best Shot mode offers you 25 pre-programmed scene modes to handle the usual to unusual shooting situations. You can create and save your own custom Best Shot scenes.
The EX-P600 offers exceptional battery life of up to 260 shots (130 minutes) or up to 300 minutes of playback time thanks to its high-capacity Li-ion rechargeable battery.
