The Casio Exilim EX-P505 represents a new class of camera that we call hybrids, which combine a full-fledged digital still camera and a digital camcorder. (Check out the preview of Sony’s entry, the DSC-M1, and look for a review soon.) These cameras attempt to change the way we look at both kinds of devices. Though we’ve seen still cameras that can shoot video and camcorders that can shoot stills for quite some time, these new models are intended to be dual-function devices to a much greater extent. For instance, some still cameras can shoot video to the capacity of their memory cards, but a key characteristic of hybrids is the ability to zoom and refocus while shooting video, just like a camcorder, and most hybrids will also have a variety of special modes that take advantage of that they serve as both types of cameras. Although you might not want to get rid of your camcorder just yet, the EX-P505 hybrid can do both video and stills well, taking 5-megapixel photos and 640-by-480 MPEG-4 videos.
Enjoy the best of both worlds with the new Casio Exilim Pro EX-P505
Casio Electronics Co., Ltd. has released the newest model in its popular EXILIM digital camera range. The new CASIO EXILIM PRO EX-P505 is a stylish digital camera equipped with a 5.0 megapixel imaging element and a 5x optical zoom. It not only takes superbly detailed digital photos, it is also capable of shooting extended video at high quality. The CASIO EXILIM PRO EX-P505 is the ideal camera for the amateur photography enthusiast and keen movie-maker.
The new CASIO EXILIM PRO EX-P505 is a high-performance digital still camera with a superior quality video capability. It features a 5x optical zoom, an imaging CCD with 5.0 million effective pixels, and the EXILIM Engine, along with a large 2-inch TFT colour rotating screen that makes taking angled shots a breeze. Additionally, the EX-P505 offers high quality video capability, of 30 frames per second at VGA size, thanks to the incorporation of MPEG-4 technology. MPEG-4 is a video compression standard that offers significantly greater compression than its predecessors which means you can shoot DVD-quality video on the camera. This makes the EX-P505 an ideal digital camera for consumers who are equally keen on creating their own movies.
The EX-P505 is the third camera in the award winning EXILIM PRO range. It incorporates CASIOâ€™s unique â€˜EXILIM Engineâ€™, an extremely compact image processing module, that delivers high quality images and high-speed operation, all within extremely compact dimensions. The moduleâ€™s low power consumption, when used in combination with CASIOâ€™s SUPER LIFE battery, means with the EX-P505, you can just keep on shooting!
