Additionally, the EX-Z280 is built with the EXILIM Engine 4.0.

Exilim EX-Z280 Highlights

Easy Mode helps newcomers become an expert with common settings
Using Easy Mode, photo settings are restricted to just image size, flash on/off and self timer, and these are displayed on a simplified menu screen.

NEW Dynamic Photo e-greeting function
This innovative function has been updated with the ability to add a number of different animated graphics to still pictures in the camera; these creations can be easily viewed on the monitor or printed. The picture with its added animation can also be converted to movies that can be emailed or posted on social networks as e-greetings. The Dynamic Photo function still retains its original ability where a picture having a moving subject can be automatically cut-out as if from a Hollywood green screen, and added to another still background image in the camera. The newly created moving subject and still background image can be converted into a movie and shared, and all of this takes place in the camera without the need of special software.

Makeup function
In addition to recognizing faces and adjusting focus and exposure accordingly, the camera can make adjustments to smooth skin in images and soften facial shadows caused by sunlight, creating beautiful photographs of people’s faces. The photographer can choose from one of twelve levels of skin beauty using different strengths of image processing, and can shoot after viewing the results in the LCD monitor.

Handheld Night Scene function and Lighting function
The camera can automatically detect difficult situations, such as night scenes where there would normally be camera shake, and backlit scenes where faces or backgrounds can be poorly exposed, and then make the most appropriate settings. All the user has to do is to press the shutter button to take great pictures.

High Resolution 720p HD Movies
The camera also features an HD Movie function. Just press the dedicated Movie button to take beautiful movies at 1280x720 pixels.

YouTube Movie Mode
Movies can be recorded and saved using the ideal size and quality settings for the world's most popular video sharing site, YouTube. Recorded movies can be easily uploaded to YouTube using the included computer software.

This camera has terrific specs. It sports a large LCD screen. HD movie capture. However, there are deal breaking (return pending) cracks for me:

PROS:
- very good macro (closeup - 2-9 inches) shots with fine detail
- 720p HD capture is easy, good quality
- shake compensation (but it is digital)

CONS:
- Poor light/contrast on shots (shot look dull)
- Pictures at low ISOs are VERY noisy
- Zoomed shots are very noisy
- LCD has 10% taken up by menu (right side)
- Ergonomics awkward with grip

Where to begin. Well the camera has terrible picture quality, when you look on the computer it looks grainy and blurry regardless of the settings. Also after a few pictures the camera begins to give you a "please wait" after each shot and to get rid of it you have to go to factory reset. To top it off I sent it to Casio and a "technician" that i spoke to over the phone and showed little to no concern. Don't every buy Casio spend a few bucks more and get a Canon. My Droid 5 Mega Pixel phone camera works better.
