Product Description

The 7.2-megapixel EXILIM Hi-ZOOM EX-V7, is the most powerful zoom in the stylish EXILIM┬« series of compact digital cameras. This new model is the world’s slimmest digital camera with a 7X optical zoom lens. Thinness is a defining quality in the EXILIM line, and the EX-V7 is no different as it easily fits in a shirt pocket or small purse. The V7 incorporates a cutting-edge, non-protruding 7X internal optical zoom lens and offers a 10X- equivalent zoom without loss of picture quality (in 3.0-megapixel mode).

The new camera also introduces an innovative function for reducing photo blur, made possible by Casio’s mechanical CCD shift technology. It also combines Casio’s well-received Anti Shake DSP, which reduces blur due to shaky hands or a moving subject by using higher ISO sensitivity and faster shutter speeds, with new motion analysis technology that uses the most appropriate ISO sensitivity and shutter speed to capture a moving photo subject. Even at high zoom settings, the EX-V7 reduces most occurrences of image blur. Everyone from first-time photographers to seasoned professionals will love this latest photographic marvel from Casio.

This latest edition to the Exilim line of digital cameras features the newest movie format – MPEG-4 H.264/AVC recording – which provides recording and playback of high-resolution video at remarkably small file sizes. In addition to increased resolution, you'll also increase compression speed so the length of video recording is limited only by your memory card. The EX-V7 is powered by the Exilim Engine 2.0 for high resolution, high performance, high speed, power saving and ultra-compact configuration. It’s packed with even more impressive features such as 2.5- Super Bright LCD, 33 Photo Best Shot Modes and 10 Movie Best Shot Modes.

Exclusive to the Casio EXILIM line of digital cameras in the U.S., is the eBay® Best Shot mode. The eBay Best Shot mode is one of 33 Best Shot Modes featured in the EX-V7. eBay Best Shot takes photos at a size that is image optimized for display on eBay, allowing picture takers to more quickly and easily create photos for selling items on eBay. eBay Best Shot mode also includes Auto Macro, an ideal setting for capturing images of small items such as jewelry, tags, etc., thus automatically adjusting the focus from acquiring fine details in close up shots to capturing large items from a distance. eBay Best Shot mode allows users to capture optimized images at an ideal size for eBay. For ease of use, eBay photos are stored in a special eBay directory.

CorvusFirst impression

Voted 5/5

I bought mine in black version few days ago and the first impression is positive, only some doubts concerning the 7X Optical Zoom. As soon as possible I'll give you more feedbacks, I have to test better the Hi-Zoom. You can see some pics, as example, already available on my album.
