    Screen

    Fixed screen

    Sensor

    BSI-CMOS Sensor

    Casio Exilim EX-ZR100 features a 12.1 megapixel 1/2.3-inch BSI-CMOS sensor with dimensions of 6.17 x 4.55 mm and a total area of 28.1 mm2. Its native ISO range is 100 - 3,200.

    The camera has BSI-CMOS sensor, short for Backside Illuminated Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor sensor. In traditional CMOS sensors, the wiring and circuitry are located on the front side of the sensor, which can block some of the incoming light. BSI technology flips this design by placing the photosensitive elements (pixels) on the backside of the sensor, allowing more light to reach the pixels. This significantly enhances light sensitivity and improves low-light performance. BSI-CMOS sensors are particularly effective in low-light conditions, as they can capture more light, resulting in brighter and less noisy images. This makes them well-suited for indoor and night photography. BSI-CMOS sensors deliver a higher SNR and reduced cross-talk.

    Photography Features

    Camera is equipped with Exilim Engine HS processor and can take pictures up to 4000 x 3000 resolution. It can also take pictures with lower resolutions like 4000 x 2656, 4000 x 2240, 2560 x 1920, 640 x 480 with 4:3, 3:2, 16:9 aspect ratios.
