Casio Exilim EX-10 announced, specs

Casio EX-10

Casio Japan has announced the EX-10 – a flagship high-end compact with a 1/1.7″ type sensor and a fast 28-112mm equivalent lens. The model, which the company says it will be launching in other markets, features magnesium alloy construction and, like the existing EX-ZR1000, an LCD that flips all the way up, for shooting self-portraits.

Here are top features of Casio Exilim EX-10:

  • The world’s first dual-combination bracketing function. The “Auto Bracketing” function automatically varies a pair of shooting parameters over three steps, producing a matrix of nine images to choose from. The “Manual Bracketing” function enables users to explore the settings of each parameter manually.
  • 28mm wide angle zoom lens with a maximum aperture of f1.8 (wide-end): This powerful lens is able to maintain a high resolution even at its peripheries.
  • 1/1.7-inch Back-lit CMOS image sensor: The expanded size of the image sensor is optimized for high-speed burst photography. The improved sensitivity increases the amount of light that can be received, while the back-lit system more effectively directs light to the sensor’s surface.
  • Easy-to-see 3.5-inch tilt-up and tilt-down display, complemented by a front shutter button
