Product Description

The EX-S12 has an ultra slim body style measuring just .6" thin (.5" at the thinnest part). It boasts an effective 12.1 megapixel resolution with up to 3X optical zoom and 4X Digital zoom and a super clear 2.7" LCD monitor.


Program the camera automatically for particular subject, scene, or lighting conditions

The High-Speed Exilim Series has up to 41 Best Shot Modes including two unique modes that activate the shutter when the subject enters or leaves the frame. If you want to capture an image of a hummingbird in this mode, you can focus on the flower. Then, when the hummingbird enters the frame, the shutter will fire automatically. Having up to 60 frames to choose from, you will have the exact image you want.

Place your subject on any background

Thanks to the high-speed image processing capability of the new engine, a moving subject can be cut out of a number of images that have been shot and combined with a different still shot that forms the background. A unique digital camera image where only the main subject in the photo is moving can be created using just the camera, with no editing on a computer.


In addition to recognizing faces and adjusting focus and exposure accordingly, these cameras can make adjustments to smooth skin in images and soften facial shadows caused by sunlight, creating beautiful photographs of people's faces. The photographer can choose from one of twelve levels of skin beauty using different strengths of image processing, and can shoot after viewing the results in the LCD monitor.

Shoot a video or take a still

One-Button Video makes it very easy for you to switch back and forth between still and video modes to capture the perfect moment.

HD Movie function

Just by pressing the dedicated movie button, these cameras will record beautiful HD movies at a size of 1280x720 pixels.
