Like all models in the Exilim series, the Z55 offers superior portability and excellent picture quality, along with extremely high speed operation for quick response in a variety of shooting situations. For example, Casio's now legendary Best Shot function allows the user to select settings automatically by choosing from sample scenes. In addition, several new functions have been incorporated to assure a higher level of performance, such as the Business Shot function which provides automatic alignment correction for photos taken at an angle, altering shots as though they were taken from a straight front position; the Auto Macro, which automatically switches between macro mode and AF mode; Flash Assist, which compensates for brightness levels in darker areas not reached by the flash; and Icon Help, which displays on-screen guides to help the user during the switching of settings.
High-resolution images captured by the CCD with 5 million effective pixels.
