About this item

The 7.2-megapixel EXILIM Hi-ZOOM EX-V7, is the most powerful zoom in the stylish EXILIM series of compact digital cameras. This new model is the world's slimmest digital camera with a 7X optical zoom lens*. Thinness is a defining quality in the EXILIM line, and the EX-V7 is no different as it easily fits in a shirt pocket or small purse.

In recent years, a number of compact, high-performance digital cameras have appeared on the market, but the trade-off between zoom power and camera size wasevident in those models. Users who wanted to capture subjects at a distance wereforced to buy bulkier cameras while other consumers sacrificed zoom for portability.

"The newest edition to the EXILIM line, the EX-V7, solves this problem, giving users the best of both worlds. It's an exceptionally portable, great-looking digital camera with a powerful zoom lens just what the world has been waiting for".

The camera also introduces an innovative function for reducing photo blur, made possible by Casio's mechanical CCD shift technology.

It also combines Casio's well-received Anti Shake DSP, which reduces blur due to shaky hands or amoving subject by using higher ISO sensitivity and faster shutter speeds, with new motion analysis technology that uses the most appropriate ISO sensitivity and shutter speed to capture a moving photo subject.

Even at high zoom settings,the EX-V7 reduces most occurrences of image blur. Everyone from first-time photographer s to seasoned professionals will love this latest photographic marvel from Casio.

Exclusive to the Casio EXILIM line of digital cameras in the U.S., is the eBay Best Shot mode. The eBay Best Shot mode is one of 33 Best Shot Modes featured in the EX-V7. eBay Best Shot takes photos at a size that is image optimized for display on eBay, allowing picture takers to more quickly and easily create photos for selling items on eBay.

eBay Best Shot mode also includes Auto Macro, an ideal setting for capturing images of small items such as jewelry, tags, etc., thus automatically adjusting the focus from acquiring fine details in close up shots to capturing large items from a distance. eBay Best Shot mode allows users to capture optimized images at an ideal size for eBay. For ease of use, eBay photos are stored in a special eBay directory.
