Casio Exilim EX-S20 Specification:

  • High-speed startup has the camera ready to shoot about 0.9 seconds after power on (when built-in flash is turned off).
  • A release time lag of only 0.01 seconds (monitor screen and flash off) means that an image starts to be recorded virtually as soon as you press the shutter release button.
  • The camera is ready to shoot in only about one second after you record an image (when built-in flash is turned off).
  • High-speed playback scrolls at a speed of about 0.1 seconds per image, making image searches quicker and easier.
  • The Macro mode lets you move in up to 11.8" for close-ups, perfect for shots of A4 size documents.
  • A lens cover protects the lens from impact and dust by opening and closing whenever the camera is turned on and off.
  • Extended battery performance gives approximately 85% longer continuous recording than the previous models (EX-S20U / EX-M20U allow approximately two hours of continuous recording).
  • A 2-megapixel CCD combines with a new noise reduction process for outstanding image quality, especially when shooting at night.
  • The Best Shot mode provides access to 15 pre-installed camera setups in an instant. Simply select the sample scene that is similar to the image you want to record, and the camera's exposure compensation, white balance, and other settings are configured automatically.
  • Photo Stand feature lets you view a slideshow of images with the camera on its cradle.
  • Full-month calendar screen shows a thumbnail of the first image recorded on each date.
  • World Time lets you select one of 162 cities in 32 time zones around the world as your home time. When traveling to another time zone, simply select the applicable city, and time and date settings are adjusted automatically.
  • An alarm function sounds an alarm and displays a specified image at a preset time. With the EX-M20U, you can also include a voice message for playback at the alarm time.
  • Triple Self-timer records three consecutive images, so you can select and keep the best one.
  • Images are stored in a Web browser-viewable format that allows you to browse images in an album on your computer screen.
  • 10MB of Flash memory comes built in, and a card slot supports use of an SD memory card or MMC (memory card not included).
  • A Favorites folder stores your favorite or private images so they are not displayed during normal playback.
