The EX-Z450 can record video with sound, and offers
three modes : HD (1280x720, 24fps), Standard (640x480, 30fps) or LP
(320x240, 15fps). There is a limit of 10 minutes per clip for YouTube video. The Optical zoom can be pre-set before recording starts, however it cannot be used during recording. You do have the option of using the digital zoom while recording but it appears to degrade the quality of of the movie. Movies are recorded in Motion JPEG .AVI format, with audio. Casio has added a one-touch button on the back
of the camera for video recording. This means that you will not have to
take the time to change to video mode, just press the record button
while in any shooting mode and the camera will instantly start
recording video at the preset quality.
Here you can see the different display modes. Changing the display is done using the top edge ("up") of the 4-way control. The user can choose between 3 scenarios: No information, Basic shooting information, and the latter with the addition of the histogram. A grid is available but has to be accessed through the menu, and will stay active through any of the 3 display choices.
