Keep moments for eternity: The new EXILIM EX-H5 and EXILIM EX-FH25 from CASIO
A compact hi-zoom model with 24 mm wide-angle and 10 x optical zoom as well as high-speed model with the new "high sensitivity CMOS sensor" and 20 x optical zoom
Norderstedt, 31 May 2010 — Casio Europe GmbH presents two new models in the EXILIM product family. Moving motifs at a distance or difficult lighting conditions are a barrier to taking good photos for many cameras. But the perfect moment pays no attention to ideal photo conditions. The new EXILIM models successfully meet this challenge. Whereas the EX-H5 expands the successful segment of hi-zoom cameras at CASIO, the EX-FH25 combines the high-speed technology with the new "high sensitivity CMOS sensor" for high-speed photo and film sequences in a quality never seen before. Both digital cameras can also record HD videos in a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.
EXILIM EX-H5 – hi-zoom for everyone
Thanks to a 24 mm wide-angle lens with 10 x optical zoom, mechanical image stabilizer using CCD shift technology and 12.1 effective megapixels, photographers are prepared for any motif with the
EX-H5. It is the ideal "tag along" camera as a result of its compact casing. No matter whether at family parties, out with friends or weekend trips - the EXILIM EX-H5 will capture all the great moments of life in high quality. The EXILIM EX-H5 also has a 6.9 cm (2.7 inch) TFT colour screen and such familiar functions as Landscape, Make-up or Art Short Mode as well as the new, improved Dynamic Photo function and numerous BEST SHOT motif programs.
The heart of the new digital camera is the EXILIM Engine 5.0 and this provides better quality in terms of colour brilliance, noise suppression and image editing. The camera responds to the photographer's wishes extremely quickly and offers short on/off times, optimized shutter delays and an intelligent auto focus that detects the size and contours of all the motif objects in the shortest possible time and optimizes the focus.
EXILIM EX-FH25 – with the "high sensitivity CMOS sensor" for brilliant images
Bad light, dusk or darkness? No problem for the EXILIM EX-FH25. With the new "high sensitivity CMOS sensor" each individual motif is recorded in outstanding brilliance and clarity. As a result of much higher light sensitivity compared to traditional sensors and the reduction of noise at the same time images are recorded with brilliant colours, strong contrasts and sharp details even in poor lighting conditions.
With the 20 x optical zoom with a mechanical image stabilizer, a powerful 26 mm wide-angle lens and a resolution of 10.1 megapixels, users have complete freedom to select their motif. Wide-ranging landscapes, large-scale sights and romantic sunsets are captured just as easily as distant objects zoomed up close. Even at 20 x optical zoom, the CMOS shift image stabilization significantly reduces the risk of lack of focus from shaking.
The familiar high-speed series captures special moments with up to 30 photos per second and a resolution of 9 megapixels. And those who press the shutter a little too late no longer need to get annoyed: the pre-record mode starts the recording as soon as the shutter is half pressed.
With the aid of high-speed film recording with up to 1000 images per second, the EX-FH25
can capture fast movements that the human eye cannot see. The user can choose between
different recording speeds.
Ambitious hobby photographers who mainly want to take photos of fast motifs from nature or sport will really love this camera. The EX-FH25 offers a range of BEST SHOT modes for high-speed photo and film series. For high-speed lighting, for example, the camera takes three photos in a fraction of a second and each one has different light settings. These three photos are then automatically combined to make a perfect image. Other BEST SHOT modes are the High-speed Anti Shake that makes photos that tend to be unfocused due to hand movements clear and sharp.
Whether the High-speed Night Mode for better photos in the dark and very poor lighting conditions - the risk of shaky images can be reduced, even without a tripod.
The compact EXILIM EX-H5 digital camera is now available in silver, black and red.
The EXILIM EX-FH25 is also available in black.
