Casio EX-Z57 Review
By Movable Type Admin
(Note: Please excuse the poor quality of some screen captures, the EX-Z57 does not have a video out feature so we had to photograph some of them.)
Pressing the Play button on the back brings up the image last captured. There
is very little overlay information. Only the image size (1600x1200), quality
(Normal), file number, memory source, battery level indicator, and time and
date of capture are shown. Pressing the 4-way controller left or right scrolls
through the stored images.
Pressing the DISP button enables the display of all of the exposure data: Shutter
speed, aperture, ISO value, Best Shot, Flash mode, White Balance and Metering option
as well as the histogram.
Pressing the MENU button in PLAY mode brings up this screen. From here you
can start an automated Slideshow, display the calendar, copy Favorite pictures
to the FAVORITES folder in internal memory, set DPOF printing information,
Protect image(s) from deletion, Rotate portrait mode images, Resize image to
1280x960 or 640x480 for web use or email, Trim (crop) images, include a voice
memo (Dubbing), create an album to display images, turn the Alarm on or off
and Copy images from the internal 9.3MB memory to an SD card or vice-versa.
The playback image can be magnified up to 4x in four steps when you press
the Zoom Telephoto button. You can scroll around inside of the enlarged
image using the 4-way controller. Pressing the Zoom Wide angle button will
shrink it back down again.
Here you can see the playback of a movie, which is saved in .AVI format. It
gives you "VCR" like buttons to control Rewind, Play, Fast-Foward, and Stop.
Audio memos up to 30 secs. can be recorded and attached to still images.
You can also play back your audio-only clips. The
sound will be heard through the camera's built in speaker.
If you shot your picture at the highest resolution and need it for email or web
use then select the Resize option and create a 1280 x 960 or 640 x 480 size image.
The Trimming feature allows you to crop photos in the camera.
Create HTML-based photo albums.
You can select from a variety of page styles and background colors and then the camera
will create all the necessary HTML code. You can now view all your pictures using an
Internet browser like Internet Explorer, no special graphic programs required.
