Above you can see the EX-Z2000's Auto or Point-n-shoot exposure mode. This is your basic exposure program that handles all of the exposure process for you. However, you do have access to settings like ISO, AF mode, Exposure compensation, white balance, etc. Icons on the screen are the AF frame, battery level indicator, Anti-Shake is set to Auto (shaky hand symbol), number of frames remaining and along the right you can see image mode (14m/Fine), flash mode (off), etc. These settings can be accessed by the short-cut menu (shown below).

When you half-press the shutter release the autofocus is locked and the exposure is calculated and set. If autofocus was successful the AF marks will turn green, if it fails they turn red and blink.  The camera also indicates the aperture and shutter speed values it chose, and the red lighting bolt icon shows that the flash is charged and will fire. This frame also indicates that the camera is using Macro focus.


casio_ex-z2000_rec_pauto.jpgView of the Premium Auto mode. This is Casio's version of "intelligent Auto", and tries to achieve the best image quality possible by recognizing the shooting environment, and selecting the best scene mode settings (like Macro above). This is more draining on the battery than shooting is standard Auto mode and takes longer to process photos (meaning a slower shot-to-shot time).


casio_ex-z2000_rec_macro.jpgHere you can see the camera in Macro focus mode. This allows the EX-Z2000 to focus from 4.7 - 19.7 inches (12- 50cm).

casio_ex-z2000_rec_smacro.jpgSuper Macro mode locks the zoom to a specific position, and allows you to get as close as 1.9-inched (5cm).


casio_ex-z2000_rec_movie.jpgHere is a view of the movie recording mode. Recording movies is as easy as pressing the movie record button on the back of the camera. Press the button again to stop recording. Zooming while recording is disabled in movie mode, although you can use the digital zoom (which we recommend using sparingly as it degrades quality). Movies are saved as Motion JPEG (.AVI) files.



casio_ex-z2000_rec_bs_anim.gif The Casio EX-Z2000 has 40 Best Shot Presets for a wide variety of shooting conditions. Pressing the telephoto Zoom control allows you to see a brief description of the mode that you currently have selected. These are accessed by pressing the "BS" button on the top of the camera.

Pressing DISP or "Up" on the 4-way controller allows you the option to control how much information is shown on the LCD screen. You have the choice of standard information (default), extended info with histogram, or no icons at all. There is also a grid display option available in the Rec. menu that helps with orientation (not shown above).

To access the shortcut menu, you simply press the SET button. Then using the Up/Down directions of the 4-way control, you can scroll through the list. To change a desired setting use the left/right keys of the 4-way control. The shortcut list can be customized to your needs by pressing the Menu button at any time when using this interface.
