Using blur detection technology, the EX-Z85 can automatically take a photo the instant that hand shake or subject movement stops, even without the need to push the shutter button. This reduces photo blur caused by the movement involved in pressing the shutter. The camera will also automatically release the shutter at the moment of a smile or the moment subject blur ceases in a panning shot. A shot can also be taken the moment the userís face fills the frame when taking a self-portrait.
EX-Z85 records video in iTunes-compatible H.264 video standard
The camera uses the H.264 video standard, which utilizes the AAC audio codec widely enjoyed in Apple's iPod and other mobile devices. It also enables recording of movies in an attractive wide-screen format. The camera also features a Movie Button that makes movie recording a snap.
EX-Z85 features automatic face recognition or face detection functions
The Face Recognition function in the EX-Z85 allows users to detect the presence of up to 10 people's faces, and then, prior to shooting, the camera automatically recognizes the pre-registered face or faces that should be most clearly photographed, and gives those faces priority for correct focus and exposure.
