Casio debuts its innovative intense-speed Exilim camera called the EX-ZR100 and two other novel entry-level point-and-shoots called the EX-ZS10 and EX-ZS5 at CES 2011 in Las Vegas.
The fast ZR100 features a stabilized backside illuminated CMOS sensor having 12.1 megapixels, generating thirty 10 megapixel frames at about 40 fps. The ZR100 can store slow motion video at a maximum of 1000 fps and is capable of recording traditional 1080 HD video at a rate of 30 fps.
The 12.5x optical zoom lens of the ZR100 exhibits a 24mm to 300mm angle of view. Casio states that its Multi Frame SR Zoom functionality digitally expands the zoom range to an extent of 25x, resolving the damage done to an image employing digital zoom.
A double-core Exilim Engine HS processes rapid-fire images and generates 0.37 shot-to-shot time. The Slide Panorama characteristic joins the images together, producing a concluding photo of 360°.
Casio's two novel entry-level point-and-shoots called the Exilim EX-ZS10 and EX-ZS5 feature5x optical zoom lenses as well as 14.1 megapixel sensors. The ZS10 records 720p HD video whereas the ZS5 tops out at VGA standard video recording. Both the cameras have a 2.7-inch LCD, a 26mm wide angle lens, and 23 scene modes.
