Exclusive to the Casio EXILIM line of digital cameras in the U.S., is the eBay Best Shot mode. eBay Best Shot is currently incorporated into five EXILIM ZOOM models and is the 23 rd of 33 Best Shot modes in the new EX-Z70. eBay Best Shot mode enables automatic image optimization for eBay, configuring photos to fit eBay's recommended specifications for image posting. Images are captured at 1600 x 1200 pixels, and stored in 800 KB files. eBay Best Shot mode also includes Auto Macro, an ideal setting for capturing images of small items such as jewelry, tags, etc., thus automatically adjusting the focus from large items at a distance to fine details in close up shots. Casio's new eBay Best Shot mode is a simpler, faster way to size and optimize images for use on eBay, for email transfer or for use anywhere else on the Web.
In addition to its compact and stylish design, the EX-Z70 functions include "Old Photo" Best Shot Mode, which refreshes faded colors of old photos by bringing them back to life in digital format, automatically adjusts for obliquity even when photos are shot while still in the album. The Rapid Flash function enables three consecutive, high-speed flash photos in only one second, ensuring that no special moments are missed. The Easy Mode setting provides a simplified, easy to understand, and convenient version of the settings menu and camera interface, designed especially for first time users but also helpful to those who prefer a basic camera settings interface as well. The BEST SHOT Button enables convenient, one-touch access to 33 scenes chosen from an image menu and providing the user with a wide range of camera settings for taking hassle-free photos every time.
The EX-Z70 has features like: "Auto Macro" mode which allows for automatic switching between macro and auto focus modes. "9-Point Multi AF" clearly indicates the areas of focus when photographing subjects with multiple focus points. The "Quick Shutter" function reduces mistakes by facilitating simple and easy high-speed focusing. "Flash Assist" mode compensates for poorly illuminated areas within the shot. "Exposure Warning" mode warns over or under exposure via an on-screen display. The "Icon Help" function provides icon guidance when adjusting camera settings. The "Direct On" button allows quick startup in both shooting and playback modes.
The Z70 can also record movies with sound in VGA (640 x 480 pixels) size at 30 frames per second. Using the "Motion Print" function, movies can be converted into a series of nine or just one snapshot for printing. Movies can be zoomed in during replay and the "Movie Editing" operation offers three ways (beginning, middle, end) to cut unwanted scenes from a movie.
Camera data is stored in its 8.3 megabytes of internal memory and on optional Secure Digital
(SD) type cards. The camera is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery that is good for up
to 200 shots per charge. A small AC charger is included and the battery can also be charged
with an optional docking cradle. Data is transferred to computer via USB and you can print
directly to any PictBridge compatible printer. Still images are ExifPrint and PRINT Image
Matching III compatible.
