I had a chance to use the Casio Exilim EX-ZR10 yesterday, and I was impressed. This camera will not be released until December, but it is worth checking out if you are looking for a new camera this Christmas. Here’s what impressed me about this compact camera:
- Automatic high dynamic range (HDR), which allows it to automatically combine several photos, eliminating washed out skies or dark shadows.
- Artistic HDR, which produces artistic effects without the need for additional software and image processing.
- High definition and high-speed movie modes.
- Burst shooting that takes a series of up to 30 photos so that you get exactly the right shot.
The only feature that appeared to be missing was integrated GPS that would tag photos with location. Exact pricing was not available but it sounds like it will be under $400.
