The Casio EXILIM EX-10 photo and specs list have been leaked on the web ahead of the compact camera’s official announcement, which is set to occur in the coming days.
Despite facing adversities from the world of smartphones, Casio is not abandoning the digital cameras industry. The company has released a fair share of shooters throughout the year, but there is room for one more, according to inside sources.
A low-resolution photo and the specifications sheet of a so-called Casio EXILIM EX-10 have both appeared on the web.
The EX-10 sounds like a very good compact on paper and people looking to purchase such a device will have to wait a while longer, as this high-end shooter is coming soon to the market to compete against Canon PowerShot G16, Nikon Coolpix P7800, Olympus Stylus XZ-2, and others.
Casio EXILIM EX-10 specs include 1/1.7-inch sensor and 28-112mm f/1.8-2.5 lens
As the leaked photo of the new EXILIM does not tell us anything due to its reduced quality, we will have to rely on the rumor mill to do this job.
A trusted source is reporting that the Casio EX-10 will feature a 1/1.7-inch-type BSI CMOS image sensor, 3.5-inch tilting LCD screen, 5-axis image stabilization technology, HS Ver. 3 Advance dual processor, and a 35mm equivalent lens of 28-112mm f/1.8-2.5.
The amount of megapixels still needs to be determined, but, meanwhile, it is worth noting that the LCD monitor will tilt by 180 degrees upwards and 55 degrees downwards. The lens appears to be a very bright one and will also receive help from the IS system, which should help reduce the shakes and capture blur-free photos.
Definitely WiFi and possibly an automatic lens cap closing system
This is not everything that the Casio EXILIM EX-10 has to offer. The camera will be based on a magnesium body and will include some kind of an auto opening and closing lens cap system, which might function as the one found in the new Olympus Stylus 1
Being a high-end compact camera, it could not have missed having WiFi. This feature will allow users to transfer files to a remote device wirelessly or even control the shooter with the help of a smartphone.
The new EX-10 will capture up to 6 frames per second in continuous mode for up to 30 frames and offers a 2-axis bracketing function for up to 9 frames.
Announcement coming soon, release date is a couple of weeks away
Casio will announce the new EXILIM EX-10 sometime in the following days and will release it by the end of November 2013.
It is rumored that the price will stand at around 80,000 yen or about $805. Nevertheless, we do not have to wait very long for the device to be announced so stay tuned to find out everything about this high-end compact camera.
