Outstanding top performance
The EX-Z2 conceals a high performance of 12.1 megapixels in its slim design case. The CCD chip with 12.1 megapixels does not only allow you to take brilliant photos, but also edit, enlarge and print out sections of a photo — in outstanding quality and with no loss of image detail.
6.9-cm (2.7-inch) wide-screen TFT colour display
The large 6.9-cm (2.7-inch) wide-screen TFT colour display completes the design of the EX-Z2. It takes up the entire rear side of the camera, ensuring an exact view of all subjects, stored photos or films - in sunlight and complete darkness.
3x optical zoom
The EX-Z2 is only about as thick as your little finger - but has a 3x optical zoom. And so you will be able to see the finest details and will always be in the thick of the action.
The flash for every situation
You can adapt the flash of the EXILIM Zoom EX-Z2 to different situations. The following presets are available for this:
• Red Eye-Reduction: reduces the "red eye effect"
• Auto: flash is switched on automatically when required
• On: flash always switched on
• Off: flash always switched off
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.
TV show instead of slide lecture
Invite your friends and relations to enjoy the best movies and photos in large-scale format. You simply connect your EXILIM Zoom EX-Z2 to a TV using the AV output.
Memory card slot
However you want
The EX-Z2 can save your photos and movies on SD/SDHC, MMC/MMCplus or Eye-Fi Wireless cards as desired. You can now decide which of these optional cards to use spontaneously and flexibly.
Ultra-slim design case
Shine anytime, anywhere
The EX-Z2 with its small dimensions is very slim and therefore excellent to operate. The elegant design and the interplay between matt and shiny colour elements give the digital camera quite a special appeal.
