EXILIM Zoom EX-Z90
Colour & design concept
The EX-Z90 boasts design that is as stylish as it is cool, giving this digital camera a character all of its own. The housing and lens are available in fashionable pink, rosé, blue and gold, as well as in old favourites silver and black. No matter what colour it comes in, the EX-Z90 promises to turn heads and steal the show whether you're using it day to day or on the move.
Dynamic Photo function
Your ideas. Your photos.
Thanks to the new Dynamic Photo Function, you can not only cut out subjects from an image series and insert them into other pictures, but you can also combine your photos with funny animations. You can adapt the size of the subject to best fit the background and the Dynamic Photo subjects can then be transformed into a video using the EXILIM camera itself.
Let's go: Surprise your friends with a personal and funny "Dynamic Photo" greeting!

EXILIM Engine 4.0
Backlight, portrait photos, night-time photos and poor lighting conditions - the new EXILIM Engine 4.0 image processor enables you to overcome all these challenges. The EXILIM Engine 4.0 processes complex images very quickly and ensures excellent image quality with moiré and noise suppression, making it a pleasure to take and view excellent photos.
Feel like a model

Face detection function
The simple touch
Whether you're on holiday, at a party or spending time with your family - people are particularly popular subjects for a photo. It's always a pity when faces turn out blurred on a picture. The Face Detection function now offers the perfect solution, recognizing the individual faces or even entire groups, and automatically applying the best possible setting.
Auto Shutter function
Enjoy the moment
Blurred images are usually the result of an unsteady camera action or subjects that move while the release button is being pressed. EXILIM offers a simple solution to the problem of blurred or shaky photos: The new Auto Shutter function can automatically determine the perfect moment to take a photo.
Working in conjunction with the Anti Blur Auto Shutter, Pan Auto Shutter, Smile Detection Auto Shutter and Self Portrait Auto Shutter functions, the new technology ensures rapid focus and takes the photo automatically when the image is steady, so the result is not impaired.
Anti Blur Auto Shutter
Hold it there!
The practical Anti Blur Auto Shutter function helps prevent shaking and blurring caused by movement; it does this by taking the photograph at the precise moment when your hand or the moving subject becomes still.
Pan Auto Shutter
Always on the move
Fast-moving subjects are hard to capture on camera. When you activate the Pan Auto Shutter function, the photo is automatically triggered as soon as the moving subject becomes still in the frame, e.g. when you follow it with the camera.
Smile Detection Auto Shutter
No smile, no photo!
Smile and the world smiles with you! The innovative Smile Detection Auto Shutter function ensures that you will never again miss that smile when taking photos. Press the release button as soon as you have the faces in the frame. The photo will then be taken, fully automatically, once the subjects are smiling.
Self Portrait Auto Shutter
Are we all in the photo?
Totally practical: the Self Portrait Auto Shutter function enables the camera to recognise faces. Once the release button is pressed, the camera prepares to take the photo and automatically does so once the faces of the subjects are located within the frame.
Advanced Auto Tracking AF Function
Everything in view
Dogs running, kids jumping around, moving cars - there are countless examples of moving subjects, which can try the patience of even professional photographers. Thanks to the Auto Tracking AF function with motion analysis, you can relax and concentrate on the overall subject. Press the release button half way down, to fix the focus for saving – as soon as you see the picture you want, simply press release!

Movie Stabilisation function
The movie stabilisation function can reduce the risk of filming scenes which are wobbly because the camera has not been held still. This function can stabilise unwanted movements, which often produces better pictures.
Outstanding top performance
The EX-Z90 CCD chip offers an amazing 12.1 megapixels. The camera delivers crystal-clear and extremely detailed photos. Even magnifying details and photos to poster size is not a problem — outstanding quality and no loss of image detail.
6.9-cm (2.7-inch) TFT colour display
The large, high-resolution 6.9-cm (2.7-inch) TFT colour display is the perfect finishing touch to the design of the EXILIM Zoom EX-Z90: It covers almost the entire rear side of the camera, providing detailed images of your subjects, saved photos or movies — in sunlight and complete darkness.
Intelligent AF function
Your subjects need never again be out of focus in your photos! The intelligent AF function automatically focuses in on the ideal field of view and captures it clearly. The technology behind this feature recognises the size and contours of subjects when the shutter release button is pressed half way down and then automatically selects the optimum focus. All you have to do is relax and wait for the right moment, then press the shutter release button!
