6.4-cm (2.5-inch) TFT colour display
The large, high-resolution 6.4-cm (2.5-inch) TFT colour display is the perfect finishing touch to the design of the EXILIM G EX-G1: It covers almost the entire rear side of the camera, providing detailed images of your subjects, saved photos or movies — in sunlight and complete darkness.
Intelligent AF function
Your subjects need never again be out of focus in your photos! The intelligent AF function automatically focuses in on the ideal field of view and captures it clearly. The technology behind this feature recognises the size and contours of subjects when the shutter release button is pressed half way down and then automatically selects the optimum focus. All you have to do is relax and wait for the right moment, then press the shutter release button!

For everyday challenges
From cool, up-to-the-minute sports to extreme outdoor activities — the EXILIM G EX-G1 is the perfect companion for every adventure. In the blink of an eye, special protectors can be added to the robust camera, adding additional protection to the housing against external forces such as bumps and falls. The protectors are included in the scope of delivery.
Whether you're indoors at a party or outside in the twilight, when it's dark, we discover lots of exciting subjects. Unfortunately, it can often be difficult to judge the perfect moment to take a photo because the subject is barely visible. The Rapid Flash illuminates the subject and enables you to take great photos, serial shots and films, even in poor light conditions. What's more, the Rapid Flash LED acts as an AF assist light when photographing in a dark environment and as a time signal when using the self-timer.
EXILIM Engine 4.0
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.
BEST SHOT Interval Recording: film
For sports movies
Whether you are riding a bike, snowboarding or windsurfing, sporting activities are normally virtually impossible to film as both hands are busy. Using the Interval Recording option, you can now create impressive films automatically at specific time intervals while you get on with the sport. To do this, the EX-G1 is simply attached to the handlebars or sail using a special fixture. The recording time for films can be set to 3, 10, 20 or 30 minutes — however long you need*.
* Max. recording length 30 minutes/video
Improved Dynamic Photo function
Your ideas. Your photos.
Thanks to the new Dynamic Photo function, you can not only cut out subjects from an image series and insert them into other pictures, but you can also combine your photos with funny animations. You can adapt the size of the subject to best fit the background and the Dynamic Photo subjects can then be transformed into a video using the EXILIM camera itself. Let's go: Surprise your friends with a personal and funny "Dynamic Photo" greeting!
Wide Movie Shooting
For a real home cinema experience
Wide Movie Shooting lets you film movies in 16:9 wide screen format. As a result, you can watch your films on a plasma or LCD television, for instance, in full wide screen format — without irritating black borders or distorted images.
BEST SHOT Interval recording
Time travel with the EX-G1
When you see a snail crawling in turbo mode or a crocus breaking through a layer of snow, then you know a digital trickster has been hard at work. You can create time-lapse shots like this — which normally take minutes or hours — using the BEST SHOT "Interval recording" motif program. This function takes photos at intervals of 10 seconds to 3 minutes; the recording time is from 3 to 30 minutes — however long you need.
YouTube™ Capture Mode
Share your videos with your friends!
It has never been easier to upload your own videos to YouTube™: With the EX-G1, you can film* your most memorable moments directly in a video size and quality optimised for YouTube™! The exclusive software makes uploading** your videos to YouTube™ child's play.
*Max. recording duration of 10 minutes/video
** To upload your videos, you need an Internet connection. This may entail additional costs.
BEST SHOT Underwater Mode
Dive in and relax
With the BEST SHOT "Underwater" motif program you'll always be able to take colourful pictures of the fascinating deep. To enhance the colours of the natural world, automatic colour correction and contrast enhancement reduces any bluish cast on the photos. In addition, the ISO sensitivity and exposure time are set to optimum values to keep the risk of blurred photos to a minimum.
With this practical button you are always ready to film the best scenes When the camera is switched on a touch of a button is enough – and filming begins immediately.
BEST SHOT Snow Mode
Blue skies and white, snowy landscapes: Winter is a particularly exciting time of year when it comes to photography, but it also presents significant challenges. Subjects often appear too dark in the foreground because the environment is extremely bright. Using the BEST SHOT "Snow" motif program, the exposure and white balance are adjusted such that the colours are rendered with a natural appearance, and incorrect exposures due to highly reflective snow are avoided.
Do you want to film the past?
Pre-record can do just that! If you do not press the shutter release on time in important moments, the past 5 seconds will already have been saved!
How does Pre-record work? In this mode, the camera is constantly making recordings - and when you press the shutter release, the last 5 seconds are added to your current recording.
BEST SHOT Beach mode
Holiday photos of your loved ones at the beach or pool are often not that easy. The outcome is over-exposed shots and strong shadows — particularly with photos of faces. Ideal for great photos at the sea: The BEST SHOT "Beach" motif program. Switch to Beach mode when you're taking pictures in strong sunlight on the beach. This prevents the picture from being too dark; instead you'll get clear photos with the correct exposure.

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.
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.
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!
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.
