Norderstedt, September 2006 - Autumn is approaching and welcomes us with glowing colors. A clear blue sky and the multi-colored leaves make us feel like taking long walks during the colorful season. EXILIM is also contributing to the colorful hustle and bustle: the color variations blue and red complement the EXILIM Zoom EX-Z700, which is already available in silver, grey and gold. Besides its exciting exterior, the technical qualities of the digitally compact camera are captivating. The 7.2 mega-pixels and the extra bright 2.7 inch screen are the foundation for brilliant photos. At the same time, a fast ready status and short shutter delay make sure the user does not miss one`s motif. The camera also has 37 BEST SHOT motif programs, including the very impressive Auto Framing function and layout shot. The Auto Framing function frames a phreatic object marked with the auto-focus, follows it and always holds it automatically at the center. The EX-Z700 then saves the contents of the framed motif as a new photo. With the innovative layout shot, the user can combine up to three photos in one photo, similar to a collage. To this end the photographer selects a layout from the menu and takes either two or three shots, which are integrated directly into the presentation. Subsequently, the powerful performance of the storage battery, coupled with fast, energy-saving electronics and a completely charged storage battery, allows up to 460 photos . Consequently, one battery charge during a spontaneous autumn holiday is sufficient to record lots of beautiful impressions in photos.

The EXILIM Zoom EX-Z700 is available at retail in the color variations blue and red.
