9-Point Multi AF function
If you take photos using the multi-focus, the camera measures the distance from the motif with the 9-Point Multi AF function at nine different points and sets the right focusing range. In addition, all the measured areas are displayed simultaneously which were the object of the focussing procedure. This means that every picture is extremely crisply focused.
Advanced Auto Tracking AF Function
Everything in view
Dogs running, kids jumping around, moving cars - there are countless examples of moving subjects, which can try the patience of even professional photographers. Thanks to the Auto Tracking AF function with motion analysis, you can relax and concentrate on the overall subject. Press the release button half way down, to fix the focus for saving – as soon as you see the picture you want, simply press release!

Hold it there!
The practical Anti Blur Auto Shutter function helps prevent shaking and blurring caused by movement; it does this by taking the photograph at the precise moment when your hand or the moving subject becomes still.

Auto Shutter function
Enjoy the moment
Blurred images are usually the result of an unsteady camera action or subjects that move while the release button is being pressed. EXILIM offers a simple solution to the problem of blurred or shaky photos: The new Auto Shutter function can automatically determine the perfect moment to take a photo.
Working in conjunction with the Anti Blur Auto Shutter, Pan Auto Shutter, Smile Detection Auto Shutter and Self Portrait Auto Shutter functions, the new technology ensures rapid focus and takes the photo automatically when the image is steady, so the result is not impaired.

Does the wrong date appear, because you have changed the settings without realizing it? Or was the time on the clock not adapted to the local time when travelling? The Date Edit function has the perfect solution to precisely these problems. The date and time can be corrected easily after the photo has been taken.
Shine anytime, anywhere
During the creation of the EXILIM EX-Z100, particular focus was placed on the sophisticated design. The compact stainless steel housing is both high-quality and elegant, which gives the digital camera a completely unique appearance - so you can shine anytime and anywhere.

EXILIM Engine 2.0
The guarantee for outstanding video recordings
The extremely powerful EXILIM Engine 2.0 combines multiple components in a compact space, works extremely quickly and saves energy. The image processor also has sufficient capacity for the Advanced Auto Tracking AF function, hue adjustment to optimise dark areas, targeted noise elimination in critical colour areas and quicker image processing. The new EXILIM Engine 2.0 also ensures quick reaction times and long battery operating times — which creates great pictures.
Face Detection function
The simple touch
Whether you're on holiday, at a party or spending time with your family - people are particularly popular subjects for a photo. It's always a pity when faces turn out blurred on a picture. The Face Detection function now offers the perfect solution, recognizing the individual faces or even entire groups, and automatically applying the best possible setting.
Flash Assist function
With flash shots the background often remains dark. The subject is only slightly lit. The solution: Flash Assist. With this function the subject can, in many cases, still be corrected automatically.

Multiple Image Display

Non Deterioration Zoom
Even closer to the action
A real innovation ensures that the compact EX-Z100 can provide a zoom of up to 22,8x. Enjoy entirely new possibilities in pocket format!
And here is how it works:
The 10.1 Megapixel resolution makes it possible to use a sophisticated method: a small area at the edge of the CCD chip is "switched off". The picture in the middle of the chip is now enlarged. This turns the 4x optical inner zoom into a 22,8x equivalent zoom – and the resolution remains at its high level of 7 megapixels. With a VGA resolution, you can even obtain a huge zoom factor of 22.8* - to get even closer to the action.
*Valid for image resolutions with VGA
For a clearer view
The arrangement of the operation panel on the display is particularly clear and enables the user to move quickly between the various adjustment features.
Pan Auto Shutter
Always on the move
Fast-moving subjects are hard to capture on camera. When you activate the Pan Auto Shutter function, the photo is automatically triggered as soon as the moving subject becomes still in the frame, e.g. when you follow it with the camera.
Do you want to film the past?
Past Movie can do just that! If you do not press the shutter release on time in important moments, the past 5 seconds will already have been saved!
It's your choice
You're in charge – you can choose between 3:2, 4:3 and 16:9 formats. That is particularly practical if you will be showing your pictures on a screen, television or video projector with this format. The 3:2 format is the classic format for photos. With the aid of the 4:3 format you can admire your photos on the TV or on your PC. The 16:9 format is best suited to plasma and LCD-televisions.

If you wish you can run your saved pictures across the screen like a slide show.
Getting the right angle
Pictures taken in a portrait format can be manually rotated for playback in landscape format. Now you don't have to turn the camera or your head in order to look at the picture.
How fast is really fast
The EXILIM Zoom
Shoot photos faster
When you're shooting a moving subject, you need to reset the auto focus constantly, which takes time. The Quick Shutter function deactivates the auto focus if the release button is fully pressed instantaneously. The time between the release button being pressed and the photo being taken is now just 0.008 seconds*.
Don't miss a thing
Do you want to take a photo in the dark and are unable to judge the right moment correctly? With the Rapid Flash function, three photos are taken with flash in the space of just one second, ensuring that you no longer miss those wonderful moments.
The RGB histogram displays the fractions of red, green and blue. So you have an overview of the colour components in your picture and can correct if required, by adjusting the diaphragm or using colour filters. The RGB histogram is in addition to the black-and-white histogram, with which you can control the light/dark contrast of a motif.
Self Portrait Auto Shutter
Are we all in the photo?
Totally practical: the Self Portrait Auto Shutter function enables the camera to recognise faces. Once the release button is pressed, the camera prepares to take the photo and automatically does so once the faces of the subjects are located within the frame.
Smile Detection Auto Shutter
No smile, no photo!
Smile and the world smiles with you! The innovative Smile Detection Auto Shutter function ensures that you will never again miss that smile when taking photos. Press the release button as soon as you have the faces in the frame. The photo will then be taken, fully automatically, once the subjects are smiling.

An eye on the time
The Time Stamp function enables you to give your photos a “time stamp” so that you can always see at first glance when you took the photo.
With trimming you can define sections of a photo while they are still in the camera and save them as separate shots. And so, for example, you can just cut a person's face and print it out as a photo - even without a computer.
