Norderstedt, September 2005 - The EXILIM Zoom EX-Z750 is an absolute winner when it comes to digital cameras. It has not only collected an extraordinary number of awards and test wins but is also extremely popular with professionals. CASIO has now launched a special edition of the EX-Z750: the EXILIM EX-Z750 anthracite. This is EXILIM's answer to the great echo for the camera from the ZOOM series, enhancing the photo branch with an attractive addition of the coveted model. The EX-Z750 anthracite is a little technical miracle in a brilliant outfit offering 7.2 Megapixels, 3x optical zoom and a large 2.5-inch TFT colour display with integrated optical viewfinder.

The attractively shaped, compact* casing of the camera in anthracite conceals impressive power thanks to the EXILIM Engine. It also offers unbelievable speed, being ready for use in just around 0.9 seconds** and with a shutter-release delay of only 0.007 seconds***. This just makes it so simple to take successful, spontaneous snapshots. The camera fills complete photo albums in next-to-no-time: it takes up to 325 pictures after the Super Life Battery has been charged just once****.

EX-Z750 anthracite also records gripping situations in moving format. With this small digital genius, it is so easy to produce movies in MPEG-4 format without time limit*****, with sound. The integrated Movie BEST SHOT function means there are no limits to creative scope for movies. Even successful spontaneous shots are quite straightforward with the Past Movie function. Here the camera records continuously. After pressing the shutter release, it stores the last five seconds before the beginning of the recording. Short sequences of up to eight seconds are recorded with the Short Movie function. Here the user can decide whether the film should be recorded before, during or after the shutter release has been pressed. If you would like to print out a single particularly good picture as a photo from the movie, you can do this in the Motion Print function. On request, a collage can be put together from randomly selected pictures. Use the EX Key to go straight to all the basic functions of the EX-Z750 anthracite. The practical mode control gives immediate access to the various modes, from very fast snapshots through to the manual setting possibilities. In true EXILIM fashion, the new anthracite-coloured designer camera also provides the helpfully preset motif programs, the BEST SHOT functions. With a few added recording scenarios, the functions such as Art BEST SHOT and ID Photo BEST SHOT can be selected for taking photos. Art BEST SHOT turns normal photos into individual works of art using fictive colours and materials such as pastel, pop or trellis filter. Portraits for official documents can now be produced at home with the ID Photo BEST SHOT function: the program automatically duplicates a photographed portrait and arranges several small photos in differing sizes on a document. Furthermore, EX-Z750 anthracite also offers the functions high-, multi-speed series photography and Continuous Zoom Shooting, which ensures that the camera takes two pictures with different image sections at the same time or in short succession.

The USB docking station transfers the picture data to the PC with high-speed USB 2.0 and supports PictBridge and USB Direct Print standard. Movies and photos can also be viewed directly on the TV - thanks to the AV output at the docking station and the supplied AV cable.

Besides the Super Life battery and docking station, the package also includes USB cable, AV cable, extensive software on CD-ROM and hand carrier straps. A fast battery charger, portable AV cable for connecting the camera directly with the TV, as well as camera bags and neck straps, a media case for storing memory cards and other accessories in the current EXILIM look are optionally available.

The EXILIM Zoom EX-Z750 anthracite is available from September 2005.
