The new EX-Z16 is no different, embodying the smooth design and functionality that Exilim is known for. It fits perfectly in the palm of your hand and features smooth lines and an array of beautiful colors to choose from.
New Simplified Easy Mode User Interface Makes Taking Great Pics a Snap
Even the most inexperienced photographer can take gorgeous pics with the EX-Z16’s Easy Mode User Interface. The only settings you have to adjust on our 2.7-inch high-density LCD touch screen are image size, flash and self timer – the camera does the rest! Best of all, your options are displayed on a simplified menu, making your adjustments quick and easy. Add in automatic Face Detection technology that automatically provides optimum focus — even in less than optimal lighting — and the EX-Z16 can help you take the best shots of your life.
The EX-Z16 also offers BEST SHOT technology, which automatically analyzes your scene and applies the best settings for capturing perfect images and video.

Big, Bright High-Density LCD Touch Screen Brings Your Scenes to Life
Our 2.7-inch high-density LCD (230K) touch screen provides an increased brightness and higher contrast, which gives you better image contrast, even in bright light situations. The wide 180-degree viewing angle makes it easy to line up your shots from any perspective, ensuring that what you see is what you get.
BEST SHOT Function Produces Beautiful Photos with Just a Touch
The EX-Z16 also offers BEST SHOT technology, which automatically analyzes your scene and applies the best settings for capturing perfect images and video.
