A while ago, I got to chance to try out the Casio EX-Z9, and I found the camera very simple to use with great specs. It appears that Casio has put the power of an 8.1 megapixel camera on a cellular phone with the EXILIM Keitai W63CA flip phone.
My source doesn’t say much about the phone, but it goes on and on about the camera. For instance, it has nine point autofocus function, face detection, backlight correction, anti-shake, as well as a 10.2 x digital zoom. It can also record VGA clips at 30 frames per second, which makes it perfect for YouTube videos.
The screen of the Casio EXILIM W63CA has a 3.1 inch OLED for about 26 million colors and 384,000 pixels, and it has a 1-Seg TV viewing feature. The phone has 600 MB of memory, a microSD card slot, and it can be used in 21 different countries.
I have to admit this is one of the most advanced cameras that I have ever heard of being put on a cellular phone. Most of the time, the camera is added on as some sort of convention, with very little megapixels or adjusting features. I hope the W63CA is the start of a new standard when it comes to cell phone cameras.
Unfortunately, the Casio EXILIM W63CA will only be available in Japan, and I’m not certain of the price. It will come in four colors including Ice White, Shiny Pink, Titanium Gold, and Metal Green.
