The chic EX-S880 is the latest addition to the Exilim Card series of digital cameras and boasts and impressive 8.1MP, 3X Optical Zoom and newly developed Super Bright wide angle 2.8” LCD.  This pocket sized camera features YouTube™ Capture Mode and bundle software to provide ideal settings for recording, storing and uploading videos on YouTube™ , a popular video sharing website.  The EX-S880 uses MPEG-4 H.264 video technology, which enables users to capture crisp, clear video in smaller file sizes.  With the S880’s instant record function, it is easy for users to switch between taking still photos and high quality videos.  Record up to 3 hours on a 2-gigabyte SD card!

The EX-S880 also uses motion analysis technology, an auto-tracking AF system, and face detection technology. The combination of the auto-tracking AF system and face detection technology ensures that, once the focus locks on to a person’s face, it will stay sharp and maintain the right exposure, even if the person moves.

The EX-S880 is the perfect travel companion allowing users to capture crystal clear still images and high quality videos.
