CASIO INTRODUCES NEWEST EXILIM CARD CAMERA BOASTING ADVANCED MOVIE RECORDING CAPABILITY
New EXILIM Digital Camera Unveiled at CES in Las Vegas
The EX-S600’s ability to take state-of-the-art movies instantly and easily adds to the versatility and fun of this powerful and high quality digital camera. The EX-S600 fits conveniently in any pocket to go wherever you go, ready to quickly capture all those special moments. No matter how spontaneous the situation, the EXILIM engine’s Anti Shake DSP reduces blurring caused by shaky hands and/or moving subjects, and the Auto Macro and Quick Shutter functions ensure that photos are properly focused.
"We’re very excited about the launch of the EX-S600, which not only packs a punch with six mega pixels into a pocket-sized camera, but also reduces camera shake when recording MPEG-4 movies," says John Clough, President of Casio, Inc. "Casio once again exhibits fashion with function, as the new EX-S600 will be available in three stylish colors – silver, orange, and blue. The EX-S600 is the perfect accessory for business or leisure, as it incorporates Casio’s best of class technology, allowing for great pictures and videos in an ultra slim body."
In addition to enhanced resolution, the EX-S600’s 3X zoom and increased battery life, allowing up to 300 shots per battery charge, provide significant photographic flexibility. The BEST SHOT menu includes the new Revive Shot, created specifically for taking digital pictures of old album photos. Revive Shot adjusts for obliquity as well as brightly refreshes faded colors. Whether framing a shot, reviewing images, or watching movies, everything is brighter when displayed on the adjustable 2.2 inch LCD—approximately twice as bright as previous models, making it ideal for outdoor use. Small enough to conveniently carry wherever you go, the EX-S600 has one-touch buttons that allow for quick start-up of the camera to view images, take pictures, and take movies; all designed to quickly capture special moments. The EX-S600 connects easily to a TV or PC via the multi cradle, which also doubles as the battery charger.
The EX-S600 continues the EXILIM CARD tradition of offering cutting-edge technology packed into a small, slim, and stylish body. With high quality photos, advanced movie recording capabilities, and a tremendous range of remarkable functions, CASIO once again exceeds expectations by providing a conveniently portable means of preserving memories to be cherished for a lifetime.
The MSRP of the EX-S600 is .99, and will be available at retail beginning end of March 2006.
