Adding power to its stylish Exilim line, Casio's Exilim Pro EX-P600 offers advanced features that will please both photographic pros and advanced amateurs. The compact EX-P600 has a refined stainless steel body design, 6-megapixel resolution, 4x optical zoom, ultra-fast 0.01-second shutter release lag time, large 2-inch LCD monitor, and a wide range of manual controls to help you get just the right image.
Optics and Resolution
With the EX-P600, you can capture images in resolutions up to 2816 x 2112 pixels; other resolution modes include 2048 x 1536, 1600 x 1200, 1280 x 960, and 640 x 480. It also has a 2816 x 1872 (3:2 aspect ratio) mode. In addition to JPEG capture, images can also be recorded directly from the CCD to TIFF format to avoid any degradation of picture quality.
This lens features a high-performance Canon 4x optical zoom lens with 10-stage aperture settings. It also has a 4x digital zoom, for a total 16x zoom. The lens has an automatic barrier for protection, and can be used in conjunction with the three optional Canon conversion lenses (X 0.7 / X 1.5 / close-up) to increase the camera's flexibility.
In addition to still images, the EX-P600 can also capture video clips with audio at 320 x 240 pixels. The length of your movie is only limited by the size of memory available (either internal RAM or external memory card).
In addition to a start-up time of approximately 2-seconds and approximately 0.01 second release time lag, the EX-P600 has a high-speed continuous shutter function to take 3 photos per second--up to 6 photos in succession.
By pressing the shutter button once, you can use the auto bracketing function to take either 3 or 5 photos, applying different effects to each one. In addition to exposure variation (AEB), white balance (WBB), and focus positioning (AFB), the Multi Bracketing feature also enables you to choose variations of color, portrait, sharpness, saturation, and contrast levels, letting you pick the very best shot.
The camera's photographic information, such as shutter speed, aperture, and focusing can be displayed graphically on the 2-inch, high-definition LCD monitor (115,200 pixels), making it easy to quickly adjust settings manually. By pressing the EX Button, the levels for white balance, ISO sensitivity, metering, and AF area settings can be displayed and adjusted on a single screen.
Other features include:
- Convenient wireless remote control is included for slow shutter and self-timer photos
- External flash equipment can be used with the Sync Terminal
- Photos taken with the camera in a sideways position are automatically displayed upright thanks to a built-in horizontal/vertical position sensor
The EX-P600 is PictBridge compatible, which enables you to transfer pictures from your digital camera to your printer, without a PC or image-editing software. All PictBridge devices share three basic features: camera-to-printer connecting, single-image printing, and uniform error messages (in case something goes wrong)
Storage and Transfer
Images can be stored in the built-in 9 MB memory, or on optional Secure Digital (SD) or MultiMedia (MMC) memory cards. Images can be downloaded to either a Mac or PC via USB 1.1 connectivity, which means the camera can be connected to any USB-based Windows Me/2000/XP and Mac OS 8.6 or later computer without installing any software.
Power and Size
The camera is powered by a proprietary, rechargeable lithium-ion battery (included). It measures 3.84 x 2.66 x 1.78 inches (1.03 inches at thinnest point) and weighs 7.94 ounces (excluding battery)
