Features and Controls



Casio Exilim EX-Z750


The EX-Z750 uses a 2-segment lens that provides 3x (38-114mm equivalent) optical zoom capabilities in an amazingly thin camera configuration. This is an all-glass, multicoated lens constructed of 7 elements in 6 groups with a maximum aperture of F2.8-5.1. It has a 8X digital zoom option. The lens retracts fully inside of the camera when powered down and is protected by a built in lens cover. On power up it only takes about 1.5 seconds to extend the lens.

The 9-point auto focus system has options for Spot AF, Multi AF, Free AF, Macro AF, Pan Focus (movie mode only), Infinity and Manual Focus. The EX-Z750 is the first super-compact Exilim model to feature an AF-assist illuminator to aid in accurate focusing in low light conditions.

The auto focus working range is:

    Still photos: approx. 15.75" to infinity, macro: 3.94" to 15.75" (W)

    Video: approx. 15.75" to infinity, macro: 3.94" to 15.75" (W)

It also features an "Auto Macro" function, which automatically switches between Normal and Macro focus modes.

When using the Manual Focus option the portion of the frame covered by the AF Area is enlarged to help aid in critical focusing and a sliding distance scale is displayed while actively adjusting the focus.

On the back is a large and bright 2.5-inch color LCD. This is used for playback review, menu operations and as a live viewfinder with approx. 100% coverage. The surface is coated with a shiny clear plastic which can make it difficult to use outdoors, indoors it is simply marvelous. All camera makers should use anti-glare and fingerprint resistant coatings on the LCD screens!

The MENU button calls up and dismisses the onsreen menu system. The 4-way controller lets you easily navigate menu screens or select images for playback, the center SET button accepts menu selections. You can program the "Left" and "Right" actions in the Setup menu to change Rec mode, EV comp, ISO speed, Self-timer or White Balance, the center SET button accepts menu selections.
