Casi unveils the EXILIM EX-H50, an affordable compact camera that will mainly shine thaks its powerful zoom, a 24x, both powerful and wide-angle, the H50 has an equivalent 25-600mm. Its image stabilization is a CCD-shift system. Talking about the sensor. I hate to say that but Casio is spoiling this promising lens with a cheap 16MP CCD sensor that will not be as brillant as a BSI CMOS sensor in high ISO and can not offer 1080p video recording, the Casio EXILIM EX-H50 remains stuck with 720p….
Aside from that, the camera has a smart “manner” mode that you may activate from th etouch of a button when you need to be as discrete as possible, in a museam, a restaurant…. It automatiocally shuts of all sounds, the flash, the AF assist lamp and the timer.
The Casio H50 has an auto scene mode and an artitsic auto mode with 8 digital filters available : pop art, toy camera, black and white, sepia, miniature, etc…
The Casio EXILIM EX_H50 will be available by the end of the year in 3 colors (black, white and red) for a european price tag of €199.
