Click on the EX-S20 for a QTVR tour
(Right up front we need to mention that there are TWO different EX-S20 cameras
being sold. The EX-S20 outside of N. America and the EX-S20U which is what we
have reviewed and is sold in the U.S. They are identical except that the S20U
does NOT have a movie mode. Why it's this way is a mystery.)
The EX-S20's stylish case is made of lightweight magnesium alloy and weighs a mere 2.78 oz (without battery). The camera is ready to shoot almost instantly after being turned on and a 0.01 sec. release time lag records the image as soon as you press the shutter button. An automatic lens barrier protects the lens from impact and dust by opening and closing whenever the camera is turned on and off.
The 1.6-inch TFT LCD monitor screen of the EX-S20 features a digital interface for a clearer display of images and makes image viewing easier and more enjoyable. The monitor screen can be used to arrange images, and a collection of display features help to make image viewing simpler and more fun than ever before.
The Best Shot Mode provides optimum camera setups in an instant. Simply select the sample scene that is similar to the image you want to record and the camera's exposure compensation, white balance, and other settings are configured accordingly. There are a total of 15 sample scenes built in, including "Coupling Shot" and "Pre Shot."
The EX-S20 stores images in a Web browser-viewable format that allows you to
browse images in an album format. The album feature uses HTML format, which
means you can incorporate an album directly into a web site and even print
directly from the album.
World Time lets you select one of 162 cities in 32 time zones around the world as your home time. When traveling to another time zone, simply select the applicable city, and time and date settings are adjusted automatically. A total of three independent alarms help to make sure you are on time, all the time. You can even have a specific image appear when an alarm time is reached.
In addition to its 10MB of built-in Flash Memory, the EX-S20 also supports use of
thin, compact SD memory cards and MMC cards (optional and sold separately).
An easy operation copies images between a memory card and built-in memory.
