What’s more is that with the EX-ZS10, users can record their memories in high‑definition as the camera offers 720p HD video. The EX-ZS5 features VGA video recording at a resolution of 640×480.“Because of their price points, consumers don’t expect much from entry-level compact cameras,” said Toshi Iguchi, Senior General Manager, Digital Imaging Division, Casio America Inc. “It’s an unfortunate mindset that Casio is looking to break with the new EX-ZS10 and EX‑ZS5. With their 14.1 megapixel sensors, high-performance lenses and array of shooting modes, the EX‑ZS10 and EX-ZS5 will deliver tremendous value to consumers and an overall digital imaging experience that’s far from entry-level.”

Included with each is Casio’s BEST SHOT technology, which puts 23 scene modes at the user’s fingertips, each of which were designed to help users capture the best images possible of a wide range of subjects in just about any environment. Users will also benefit from helpful images and descriptions which accompany each mode and give a detailed explanation of when to use them and what each will provide in regard to results.”
