Casio Press Release
EXILIM Card EX-S10 - the world’s smallest and thinnest* stylish 10.1 megapixel digital camera
CASIO’s EXILIM series was born with the appearance in 2002 of a “wearable card camera” - a digital camera with a very slim form. The new EXILIM Card EX-S10 maintains all of the powerful functionality of the cameras that were later developed in that line (high pixel count, zoom functionality, LCD monitor, photo functions, etc.) but it also embodies a return to a stylish thin form and a strong design presence. * As at January 6, 2008, for 10-megapixel class digital cameras. Based on CASIO survey.
Thin form with a refined design
The camera’s stylish body, measuring 94.2 mm wide, 54.6 mm high and 15.0 mm thin (13.8 mm at the thinnest part) is the product of CASIO’s relentless pursuit of thinness. It is finished according to two design requirements - a high quality feel created by the stainless steel body, and a unique beauty derived from its coloring. The camera comes in four colors - red, blue, silver and black.
10.1 million effective pixels, and a 3x optical zoom lens
This new camera’s thinner, smaller body was made possible without sacrificing high resolution image quality using a newly developed 1/2.3 inch CCD. Its high resolution images can be used to create beautiful prints even when enlarged or when the image is cropped.
2.7-inch wide and bright LCD offers high contrast
The camera incorporates CASIO’s newly developed Super Clear LCD. This produces extremely sharp and vivid images, thanks to its high contrast ratio and its 230,160 dot high resolution. The display can be viewed easily from above, below, left or right thanks to its wide viewing angle, and it is extremely bright, making it easy to see even in daylight.
Auto Shutter function automatically records the moment of a smile or the instant when hand shake ceases
Using motion blur detection technology, the camera can automatically take a photo at the instant when hand shake or subject movement ceases. Users can also automatically capture the moment of a smile, the instant when subject movement due to panning ceases, or the moment when their own face fills the frame as they point the camera towards themselves.
H.264 video, which can be enjoyed in wide format
These cameras utilize the H.264 video standard, which lets users record beautiful movies with the latest high compression technology. Users can enjoy wide format movies in a 16:9 aspect ratio. These cameras also feature a Movie Button for easy movie recording.
