Casio announced the EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z4U, the latest addition to the EXILIM Series of card-size LCD digital cameras. The new EX-Z4U features a CCD with 4 mega pixel plus a 3X zoom lens.


  • 3X optical zoom lens in a thin, card-size configuration
    The new EX-Z4U packs a powerful 3X optical zoom lens into a stylishly thin card size package that measures a mere 3.43" wide, 2.24" high, and .93" thick (.78" at its thinnest point).
  • High-resolution 4-megapixel imaging
    The 4-megapixel CCD of the EX-Z4U adds new dimensions to flesh tones and the fine detail of scenery shots for images of exquisite beauty and definition.
  • High-speed response
    With a start up time of approximately 1.6 seconds (with flash turned off) and a 0.01 second release time lag*, the EX-Z4U is faster than ever. A new Pan Focus mode eliminates the need for focusing, which provides even faster response. Multi-Auto Focus automatically selects one of seven different focus point positions to ensure that images are always focused correctly, regardless of how the subjects are arranged.
  • Built-in speaker for audio output
    New audio snapshot and voice recorder capabilities have been added, and a 2-inch monitor screen and built-in speaker lets you enjoy playback of both images and audio. Sounds can be specified for start up, shutter release and other functions.
  • Designed and engineered for ease of use
    A low-power design has extended battery life to allow approximately 540 snapshots to be taken (continuous recording). Other functions include high-speed playback capabilities that let you scroll images at about 0.1 second per image, and a Best Shot mode that uses preinstalled sample scenes to help set up the camera's functions faster, and more.

The EX-Z4U will retail for $399.99 and will be available in October 2003. Buy it now at for only $379.88!
