Furthermore, Casio has also included an exclusive software application that makes it seamless to upload movies to YouTube, and will also allow users to upload multiple videos at once, making it easier than ever before to share original content online.

Ultra-slim Design

The Exilim EX-S10 has an incredibly slim design (0.6" thick), and it's so flat that it fits comfortably in any pocket - so whether you use it for work, at a party or while traveling, this little camera can always be right there with you, ready for action. The stainless steel housing gives the camera a unique appearance, while also providing superb durability - so you can use it anywhere and anytime.

10.1 Megapixel Resolution

The CCD Image sensor of the Exilim EX-S10 supplies a rich 10.1 million pixels of full color brilliance and focus. Such high resolution photos give you the advantage that you can print them out in excellent quality or edit them on the computer. This means that enlargement of details and poster size photos are possible.

3x Optical Zoom Lens

Though the EX-S10 is as slim as your little finger, it still features a 3x optical zoom lens so you can capture the details of your scene or get a tight close up.

Ultra-bright 2.7" Wide-Screen Display

The EX-S10 features an ultra-bright Super Clear LCD display that measures 2.7" and has 230,000 pixels of resolution - enabling viewing from almost any angle. The LCD display also delivers unusually high contrast, giving you a particularly clear and crisp view of your subjects. Plus the display has adjustable brightness (5 settings).

Exilim Engine 2.0

The extremely powerful Exilim Engine 2.0 combines multiple components in a compact space, provides for fast camera operation, and saves energy. The image processor also has sufficient capacity for the Advanced Auto Tracking AF function, hue adjustment to optimize dark areas, targeted noise elimination in critical color areas and quicker image processing.

Intuitive Interface

The EX-S10 can easily be operated with just one hand (Use your thumb to navigate the menus and your index finger for the release button and zoom) plus the arrangement of the operation panel on the display is particularly clear and enables the user to move quickly between the various adjustment features.

Best Shot Scene Modes

The camera's Best Shot scene modes enable selection of the appropriate camera setting for still photos via an easy to understand sample image menu, so you'll be able to take beautiful pictures, regardless of the shooting situation or your particular photography expertise. Simply select the sample scene that resembles the type of image you are trying to record and the camera is configured automatically with the applicable recording mode, Auto Focus setting, and more.

Face Detection and Auto-tracking AF

The auto-tracking AF system uses motion analysis technology to maintain both sharp focus and correct exposure for a human face, and the combination of face detection technology and the auto-tracking AF system ensures that, once the focus locks onto a person's face, it will stay sharp and maintain the right exposure, even if the person moves; thereby making it much easier to capture beautiful portraits.

Enhanced Quick Responsiveness

Once powered on, the camera is ready to take pictures in approximately 1 second, and after the shutter is snapped, pictures are taken almost instantly, with only 0.008 second release time lag. The "Direct On" buttons allow quick startup of both shooting and viewing modes, and the camera also has High-speed image viewing at approximately 0.1 seconds intervals.

Powerful Fast Flash

The built-in flash has a "Rapid Flash" feature that enables three consecutive flash photos in one second, while the "Soft Flash" function reduces flash brightness when taking close-up flash photos. Furthermore, the "Flash Assist" mode compensates for poorly illuminated areas of the shot.

Movie Mode and Audio Record

The EX-S10 is able to record movies with sound at broadcast quality using the MPEG-4 H.264 standard that provides an increased compression ratio allowing users to record longer clips without having to sacrifice the quality of their movies, and can continue recording as long as there is memory available. The camera can also produce an audio snapshot (with audio recorded at the same time as the image or added later), and is equipped with a Voice Recorder feature.

YouTube Capture Mode

The YouTube capture mode records in next-generation MPEG-4 H.264 high quality video format, and an exclusive software application is included that makes it seamless to upload movies to YouTube in as few as two steps. This technology will also allow users to upload multiple videos at once, making it easier than ever before to share original content online. In addition the camera also includes an eBay Best Shot Mode that takes photos at a size that is image optimized for display on eBay, and for ease of use, the eBay photos are stored in a special eBay directory.

Built-in and Expandable Memory

The EX-S10 has 11.8 MB of internal memory so you can start shooting immediately. The storage capacity can also be greatly expanded with a Secure Digital (SD), Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) or MultiMediaCard (MMC), so you can save large numbers of photos and record movies in excess of an hour or more in duration.

Super-Life Battery

The EX-S10 is extremely efficient in its power usage and includes a high capacity NP-20 rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery which provides so much power, that the camera is ready for use at that decisive moment and takes up to 190 shots on a full charge.

Direct Print Capable

The EX-S10 supports PictBridge Direct printing so you can print out beautiful images without the need of a computer. Just connect the camera to a PictBridge compatible printer and print your favorite pictures the way you want them - it is that easy.

Data Storage Function

The included Data Transport software enables computer data - including Word documents, Excel tables, PowerPoint presentations, websites and any other type of printable data - to be automatically converted to JPEG format and transferred to the camera. For instance, tourist attractions and maps that users have looked up on the internet can be viewed on the camera's LCD, eliminating the need to carry around a guidebook. The camera also includes Photo Transport for transferring stored photos in a PC to the camera, thereby turning your camera into a mobile photo album.

Best thin camera out there.

I love my EX-S10. It's the best thin camera out there. I love the pictures it takes. I'm not a professional photographer, so the pictures it takes is good enough for me. Pictures are not low quality by any means. The LCD desplay is first rate and displays the view finder beautifully. The menu is also very easy to use. It has auto flash, red eye reduction, 3X optical zoom, accepts SDHC cards and it has a smart shutter. The only problem I have is with the smart shutter. It is suppose to take the picture once your hand stops shaking. Which is a problem b/c it's such a small/light camera that any movement or shaking is easily noticed by the camera. The problem is that if you have this feature turned on it takes forever to take the picture. B/c it's waiting for the camera to stop shaking. This, of course, could be b/c my hand aren't very still. Over all it's still a very good very thin camera.

Great product

We bought this item about a month ago and used a few times already. Picture quality is great, even better than the cannon powershot A80 we owned previously. The LCD screen is large enough to figure out the picture quality and focus. Battery life is quite long, but you might want to take your charger with you if you are going out of town. This camera is small and thin, it fits into the pocket easily, easy to carry around. We usually put it in auto setting and that seems to be just fine for both inside and outside shots. For the price, I really think it is one of the best deals in the market!!

The size is perfect. The quality of pictures or videos I get from this CASIO EX-S10 EXLIM is a testimony of how awsome this product is. I love it. This camera is easy to use if the manual is red first; and it is great for the price.

Slim and Fully Packed

The camera is used for spontaneous shots of family and wow moments. It is conveniently small, fits in a pocket or bag, quickly ready, in a few seconds so I don't miss much, including videos which can be interrupted for quick snap shots. If anything, the camera provides too much information in auto-focus mode and it takes time to learn the features. The manual needs to provide more detail and be easier to use and the strap should be made adjustable to permit more security on the wrist.

Great Detail

My husband has his camera and I have mine. They are both the Exilim. I use it for outdoor photos and he is in the electronics business and uses it for taking pictures of dashboards, gauges and wiring. The detail when zooming in after the photo is taken is so great, one of the customers called and asked what camera lens he was using. The camera is also very easy to understand and settings are easily changed.
