Casio Exilim EX-Z1200
Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced the release of the newest model in the stylish series of Exilim digital cameras, the Exilim Zoom EX-Z1200. The new camera is Casio’s flagship Exilim Zoom, boasting a world-leading 12.1 effective megapixels to deliver both high resolution and premium performance. It has only been a year since Casio released the revolutionary Exilim Zoom EX-Z1000, the first digital camera in the world to deliver 10.1 megapixel resolution in a size that fits easily in the palm of the hand. The Casio EX-Z1000 won acclaim for making it simpler than ever to capture images at a remarkably high resolution, and its trend-setting performance put it at the forefront of the market.
Casio Exilim Z1200 - 12.1 Megapixels
Now, going one step beyond the EX-Z1000, the new flagship EX-Z1200 offers 12.1 megapixel resolution - the highest available in any compact digital camera. At this amazing level of detail, photos print crystal-clear even in large sizes or when trimmed to show just one part of the image. It incorporates CCD-shift image stabilization and the latest Exilim Engine 2.0 image processing module with motion analysis technology. These innovative features work together to help prevent blurry shots due to shaky hands, subject movement or poor focus when photographing moving subjects such as children or pets. In addition, the auto-tracking AF system now combines both face detection and motion analysis technologies. With this revolutionary new system, once the focus is locked in, it follows a moving subject’s face, maintaining both sharp focus and correct exposure.
