Features and Controls



Casio Exilim EX-Z77


The Z77's collapsible zoom lens provides 3x (38-114mm in 35mm equivalent) optical zoom capabilities in an amazingly thin configuration. This is an all-glass, multicoated lens constructed of 6 elements in 5 groups with a maximum aperture of F3.1-F5.9. It has a 4X digital zoom option. The lens retracts fully inside of the camera when powered down and is protected by a built in lens cover.

The auto focus system has options for Spot AF (center only), Multi AF (auto selects one of nine AF areas), Tracking AF, Macro Mode, Pan Focus (movie mode only, eliminates the AF motor noises), Infinity Mode and Manual Focus. Unfortunately, the Z77 does not feature an AF-assist illuminator to aid in low light conditions.

The auto focus working range is 1.3 ft (40cm) to infinity, macro: 3.9 - 19.7 in. (10cm - 50cm), varying with zoom position. Manual focus is adjustable from 3.9 in. (10cm) to infinity.

On the back is a large and bright 2.6-inch color LCD. This is used for playback review, menu operations and is the live viewfinder with approx. 100% coverage.

Controls on the back: On the top are the zoom controls which function as the index and magnify buttons in playback. Below that are the dedicated buttons for Record and Playback modes. The 4-way controller lets you easily navigate menu screens or select images for playback, the center button accepts menu selections. You can program the "Left" and "Right" actions in the menu (Focus, EV Shift, White Balance, ISO, Self-timer, Off.) In Record mode you push "Up" to change the display modes on the LCD. You push "Down" to change the flash mode or to delete an image when in Playback. The MENU button calls up and dismisses the menu system. The BS button calls up the BestShot scene mode menu.
