A high-performance CCD and advanced EXILIM Engine combine to record high-resolution images without the digital noise normally associated with CCDs.

A low-distortion, high-resolution, thin 3-segment 3X zoom lens helps you capture each fine detail and nuance of a subject. Optical zoom in combination with digital zoom provides total zooming capabilities up to 12X.

A REC mode power button lets you start recording in an instant. A PLAY mode power button puts you directly into the PLAY mode for image viewing. Other high-speed operations include 0.01-second*3 release time lag, 1.6-second*4 startup, and 1.4-second*4 interval between shots.

Auto Pan Focus makes it possible for you to capture exactly the moment you want. Pressing the shutter button all the way activates Auto Pan Focus, which performs a record operation without waiting for Auto Focus to be performed. Use Auto Focus for stationary or slow-moving subjects. Auto Pan Focus is best when you want to capture fast-moving subjects and subjects located where lighting is dim.

CIPA Standards
The Camera and Imaging Products Association (CIPA) defines various standards for measuring camera performance, including battery life. These standards help to standardize the battery life values reported in the catalogs and user documentation of different manufacturers, which helps users to better compare different products against each other.

CIPA Standard Battery Life Measurement Conditions
Normal temperature (23C); unused primary or fully charged secondary battery; monitor on; zoom operation between full wide and full telephoto every 30 seconds; during which two images are recorded with flash; power turned off and back on every time 10 images are recorded. Battery life is time it takes for the power supply to shut down for the first time as recording is repeated under the above conditions. As a general rule, factory default camera setup is used.

*1 Approximate; CASIO comparison with EX-Z4
*2 Approximate; CIPA standards (CASIO comparison)
*3 Approximate time from when the shutter release button is fully pressed from focus lock until the image starts to be recorded (monitor screen and flash off).
*4 Approximate; built-in flash off
