Casio Exilim EX-S880 and Exilim EX-Z77 Announced With YouTube Movie Capture Mode

by Reads (10)

Casio has announced two new digital cameras – the Exilim EX-S880 and Exilim EX-Z77 – and an agreement with YouTube to make it easy for users to make movies and upload them to the popular video-sharing service. Similar to their arrangement with ebay last year, the agreement with YouTube will utilize the MPEG-4 H.264 movie capturing ability of the cameras to take "YouTube ready" movies. Additional bundled software will make it easy for users to upload and share their movies as quickly as possible.

The YouTube Capture mode on the new S880 and Z77 will record movies at a resolution of 640×480 at frame rates up to 30 frames per second. The H.264 compression scheme is "ideal" for recording longer movies without losing quality. The bundled software provides ideal settings for YouTube and allows easy storage and upload of movies to YouTube, even multiple movies at one time. The software is supposed to make it easy with three quick steps: "connect, upload, and click".

The Casio Exilim EX-S880 is the successor to the S770. The S line of digital cameras is their thinnest lineup and feature nice bright widescreen LCDs. The Z series cameras are still pretty thin and the Z77 is the successor the the Z75.
