Photo Functions

EXILIM Engine 4.0

EXtreme Power
 

Backlight, portrait photos, night-time photos and poor lighting conditions - the new EXILIM Engine 4.0 image processor enables you to overcome all these challenges. The EXILIM Engine 4.0 processes complex images very quickly and ensures excellent image quality with moiré and noise suppression, making it a pleasure to take and view excellent photos. And the best is yet to come: even with the wide range of new functions and the complex data processing, the energy consumption has been reduced by almost 30%, increasing the battery life significantly.

Mechanical image stabilisation

Outstanding pictures
 

It is virtually impossible to hold a camera absolutely still. Even the slightest movement can cause blurring and lack of clarity in the photo. The mechanical image stabilisation captures these movements and balances them out mechanically with the help of CCD shift technology, reducing the likelihood of blurred photos to a minimum.

Dynamic Photo Function

Discover the artist in you
 

With the Dynamic Photo Function, you can cut a motif out of a photo which has just been taken and use another photo as background. You can even cut out several photos from series shot and insert them to show a moving object on a still background. Create a unique image where only the motif moves – with no editing on the computer.

Multi-motion function

Always on the move
 

The BEST SHOT function Multi-Motion-Image enables you to capture a movement sequence in just one single photo. Take a photo of the moving motif in front of a still background. This motif is photographed in a series of images which are compiled to one single picture by the new EXILIM Engine 4.0. This enables you to capture movements such as a snowboarding jump from the launch to the landing on one single photo.

Hand-held night scene

Steady hand
 

With the newly developed image processor EXILIM Engine 4.0, your camera recognizes dark or night scenes automatically. Without the help of a tripod, the EX-Z400 reduces camera shakes, creating sharp, bright portraits and night shots.

Lighting function

Rich colours
 

The EX-Z400 can recognize and correct difficult light situations: the light function optimizes the brightness of faces automatically even in scenes with backlight simply by pressing the release button. Even the sky or buildings in the background that are subject to overexposure are rendered in full colour.

Face detection function

The simple touch
 

Whether you're on holiday, at a party or spending time with your family - people are particularly popular subjects for a photo. It's always a pity when faces turn out blurred on a picture. The Face Detection function now offers the perfect solution, recognizing the individual faces or even entire groups, and automatically applying the best possible setting.

Make-up Mode

Feel like a model
 

The EXILIM Zoom EX-Z400 also features a Make-up Mode Function for especially appealing portrait photographs. The outstanding image processing makes the skin on faces appear smoother and softens facial shadows caused by strong sunlight or illumination. You can select from twelve levels as desired – from minimum to maximum – and observe the effect on the TFT colour display while taking the photo. The EX-Z400 has a separate "Make-up Mode Button" to activate or de-activate the function quickly.

You don't need to be an expert to create great photos

Auto Shutter function

Enjoy the moment
 

Blurred images are usually the result of an unsteady camera action or subjects that move while the release button is being pressed. EXILIM offers a simple solution to the problem of blurred or shaky photos: The new Auto Shutter function can automatically determine the perfect moment to take a photo.

Working in conjunction with the Anti Blur Auto Shutter, Pan Auto Shutter, Smile Detection Auto Shutter and Self Portrait Auto Shutter functions, the new technology ensures rapid focus and takes the photo automatically when the image is steady, so the result is not impaired.

Anti Blur Auto Shutter

Hold it there!
 

The practical Anti Blur Auto Shutter function helps prevent shaking and blurring caused by movement; it does this by taking the photograph at the precise moment when your hand or the moving subject becomes still.

Pan Auto Shutter

Always on the move
 

Fast-moving subjects are hard to capture on camera. When you activate the Pan Auto Shutter function, the photo is automatically triggered as soon as the moving subject becomes still in the frame, e.g. when you follow it with the camera.

Smile Detection Auto Shutter

No smile, no photo!
 

Smile and the world smiles with you! The innovative Smile Detection Auto Shutter function ensures that you will never again miss that smile when taking photos. Press the release button as soon as you have the faces in the frame. The photo will then be taken, fully automatically, once the subjects are smiling.

Self Portrait Auto Shutter

Are we all in the photo?
 

Totally practical: the Self Portrait Auto Shutter function enables the camera to recognise faces. Once the release button is pressed, the camera prepares to take the photo and automatically does so once the faces of the subjects are located within the frame.

Advanced Auto Tracking AF Function

Everything in view
 

Dogs running, kids jumping around, moving cars - there are countless examples of moving subjects, which can try the patience of even professional photographers. Thanks to the Auto Tracking AF function with motion analysis, you can relax and concentrate on the overall subject. Press the release button half way down, to fix the focus for saving – as soon as you see the picture you want, simply press release!

28 mm wide-angle lens with 4x optical zoom

So far — so good!
 

The combination of the 28 mm wide-angle* design and 4x optical zoom makes the EX-Z400 the perfect companion for every occasion — you have plenty of scope to take photos, be it of your loved ones, beautiful sights or romantic sunsets. Whether you're in a small room, a car or on a ferris wheel – the 28 mm focal distance enables you to capture a larger area, allowing you to snap more of your friends for posterity in a close-up group photo, and much more.

*equivalent to 35 mm film

Photo Formats

It's your choice
 

You're in charge – you can choose between 3:2, 4:3 and 16:9 formats. That is particularly practical if you will be showing your pictures on a screen, television or video projector with this format. The 3:2 format is the classic format for photos. With the aid of the 4:3 format you can admire your photos on the TV or on your PC. The 16:9 format is best suited to plasma and LCD-televisions.

Trimming

Custom-made
 

With trimming you can define sections of a photo while they are still in the camera and save them as separate shots. And so, for example, you can just cut a person's face and print it out as a photo - even without a computer.

Passport Photo Function

Passport photos at the click of a button
 

Stress and instant-photo booths are a thing of the past. Using the BEST SHOT programme for "Passport photos", you can take several passport photos in various standard sizes in seconds – ready to print and cut out.
