Casio Exilim EX-ZR5000 Review

Casio Exilim EX-ZR5000 : A super wide-angle 19-mm* lens with outstanding resolution and a high-performance filter enables stunning wide shots. Easily fit everyone and the background in the wide image area, and shoot more freely without worrying about the angle of view.

A single press of the shutter button captures a close-up, the surrounding scene, and a movie. The animated movie shows two different angles of view—close-up and wide-angle. This gives different impressions of the scene and may reveal unexpected details in the background. A perfect choice for sharing fun and surprises on social media sites.

In addition to EXILIM Engine HS Ver. 3, the camera features a high sensitivity 1/1.7-inch CMOS sensor and a lens with excellent optical properties to provide superior image quality and definition. Also featured is 5-axis image stabilization which compensates for any blur caused when holding the camera.

The make-up function has evolved even further to provide images portraying the ideal beauty of the skin that women seek, together with the desired skin tone and smoothness.

Automatically creates a movie from the still or video footage you shoot. The camera automatically selects the best contents using our unique algorithms that incorporate editing techniques of professional movie creators. So you can look back on your memorable experiences via a digest in story format.

Compatible with Bluetooth® low energy, all you need to do is install the dedicated “EXILIM Connect” app to your smartphone and set it up just once to maintain a constant connection between your phone and camera. Combined with a feature that automatically sends your captured images by connecting with Wi-Fi at the press of a shutter button, the ZR5000 will provide you with endless potential for fun.

You can “Auto Send” captured images to your smartphone simply by taking pictures as you usually do. Your images are sent directly to your smartphone, even when it’s tucked away in your bag.
Not only can you view the beautiful images you took with your EXILIM camera on your smartphone, but you can also enjoy sharing them with your friends on cloud album* or SNS site.

Simply install the dedicated “EXILIM Connect” app on your smartphone to link your smartphone to your camera. Once you’ve set this up, you will have a constant Bluetooth® low energy connection between the two. On top of that, because it’s Bluetooth® low energy, it won’t drain your smartphone’s battery a lot.

“Scene” is a smartphone app that is specifically designed for “enjoying pictures on your smartphone”. It features a simple and intuitive interface for quickly searching any desired image, and easily sorting photos in your album with the touch of your finger. Other features include the capability to send friends a maximum of 1,000 shots at one time for as many times as you may want.
