A wealth of detail to capture your favourite moments
The slim and compact EX-H30 can take up to 1000 photos without needing to be recharged, making it ideal for travel and holidays. In addition to the Single Frame SR zoom, the camera also features an 18.8x zoom and offers optimum image quality-even for high-resolution shots-with 16.1 megapixels. Thanks to its 24-mm wide-angle lens with mechanical image stabiliser, the camera successfully captures sweeping landscapes, group photos from short distances and details in close-up shots. On top of this wide range of features, this compact travel camera also benefits from the Slide Panorama mode for panorama images, HD video recording including optical zoom during filming and the Silent Mode for environments in which a flash or shutter noise could create a disturbance.

1000 pictures on one battery charge
Always ready for action
Have you ever set up the perfect photo only to find that your battery is empty? Moments such as these are so irritating — but they can be avoided. The combination of an energy-saving processor and the high-performance lithium-ion battery ensures that the EXILIM EX-H30 won't run out of power even on long, eventful days — one battery charge allows you to take up to 1000 CIPA standard photos.

16.1 megapixels
Outstanding top performance
Within its compact and elegant housing, the EX-H30 hides 16.1 megapixels, which don't just give you spectacular photos but also ensure outstanding detail. 16.1 megapixels are perfect for editing, enlarging and printing sections of photos without any reduction in picture quality.

Bright and high-contrast 7.6 cm (3.0 inch) TFT colour display (Super Clear LCD)
Total clarity
The EX-H30 is equipped with a large, bright 7.6 cm (3.0 inch) TFT colour display (Super Clear LCD) with an exceptionally high resolution of 460,800 pixels, which ensures especially brilliant photos. In addition to the large viewing angle, the TFT colour display also has extremely high contrast, which ensures a clear, sharp view of your subjects. The display also offers exceptional brightness, making it easier for you to view your pictures – even in bright sunlight. You can select from 6 presets to match the brightness to the ambient lighting conditions: -1/0/+1/+2/Auto

Various Flash
The flash for every situation
You can adapt the flash of the EXILIM EX-H30 to different situations. The following presets are available for this:
- Red Eye-Reduction: reduces the "red eye effect"
- Auto: flash is switched on automatically when required
- On: flash always switched on
- Off: flash always switched off

Silent Mode
Do not disturb!
Whether you are in a church or museum, on safari, or just don't want to disturb the people around you, with the EX-H30 it's easy to take photos and record films without making a sound. The camera is equipped with a Silent Mode, which can be activated at the touch of a button and prevents the camera from flashing and making a sound when the shutter is pressed. Perfect for all environments in which noises could create a disturbance.

Photo Formats
It's your choice
You're in charge – you can choose between 3:2, 4:3 and 16:9 formats. That is particularly practical if you will be showing your pictures on a screen, television or video projector with this format. The 3:2 format is the classic format for photos. With the aid of the 4:3 format you can admire your photos on the TV or on your PC. The 16:9 format is best suited to plasma and LCD-televisions.

Eco mode
Save energy at the touch of a button
The Eco mode allows you to switch very easily to the energy-saving mode on your EXILIM camera. When this mode is activated by pressing the Eco mode button, the colour display luminance decreases and the energy consumption of other camera functions is reduced. In this way, the Eco mode makes it possible to take even more photos on a single battery charge.

12.5x optical zoom with mechanical image stabiliser
Powerful zoom function
It's easy to zoom in on those special moments: The 12.5x optical zoom can bring even the most distant subjects right up close, while the mechanical image stabiliser automatically reduces blurring. The EX-H30 has everything you need for any situation and guarantees outstanding photos. The Single Frame SR Zoom increases the maximum focal range of the optical zoom by 150%, transforming a 12.5x optical zoom into a powerful 18.8x zoom.

24 mm wide-angle lens
So far, so good!
The combination of 24 mm wide-angle lens* and 10x optical zoom makes the EX-H30 the perfect companion for every occasion, providing great scope to capture your loved ones, the most beautiful sights or a romantic sunset. With the 24-mm focal length, you can capture a larger area and, for example, include more friends in a group photo at a shorter distance, or photograph a complete landscape or skyline.

Panorama function
Open up to new perspectives
Expand your field of vision and discover new perspectives. Whether it's a magnificent panorama of the Alps, a group photo of whatever kind, or an exciting urban scene — the panorama function of the EX-H30 gives you extremely wide panorama images with a huge field of vision of up to 240 degrees. Even when the camera pans, moving objects and faces are recognised and the images adapted such that distortions and blurring are kept to a minimum.

New: enhanced Premium Auto mode
Photography really can be super simple
Whether it is a portrait, landscape or night shot that you want to take, or if the lighting conditions and backlighting are challenging, the EXILIM EX-H30 allows you to focus your full attention on your subject. And it is the Premium Auto mode that makes this possible. In this mode, the camera automatically recognises typical subject situations and adjusts the settings accordingly. Depending on the exposure conditions, BEST SHOT modes such as Auto BEST SHOT, Night shot without tripod, Make-up mode, Landscape mode or Intelligent AF are activated. This ensures that movements, shaking and even people's faces are detected automatically, and then perfectly focused and exposed. The camera can also automatically correct the brightness in underexposed areas of the image — ideal for subjects featuring extreme contrasts or backlighting. You don't need to worry which BEST SHOT mode is best for the situation; you can just focus your full attention on your subject and take some impressive photos. The EXILIM Zoom EX-H30 is equipped with a separate Premium Auto mode button for quick activation and deactivation of the function.

Make-up Mode
Feel like a model
The EXILIM Hi-Zoom EX-H30 also features a Make-up Mode Function for especially appealing portrait photographs. The outstanding image processing makes the skin on faces appear smoother and softens facial shadows caused by strong sunlight or illumination. You can select from twelve levels as desired – from minimum to maximum – and observe the effect on the TFT colour display while taking the photo.

EXILIM Engine 5.0
Extremely powerful
The digital brain of the EXILIM camera is the EXILIM Engine 5.0. This innovative image processor functions according to a completely new concept to achieve particularly bright colour reproduction, high image quality and quick response times: The processor offers even better performance and is even faster, ensuring effective moiré and noise suppression without losing details. The EXILIM Engine 5.0 masters all challenges such as backlighting, portrait, landscape and night shots or poor lighting conditions. In addition, the image processor provides clever functions such as Intelligent Colour Technology, the improved Make-up mode and the Premium Auto mode, which independently analyses the exposure conditions and then automatically configures the optimum settings.

Landscape Mode
I like the sound of that!
The EX-H30 is equipped with a landscape mode for outstanding landscape photos. The "Vivid Landscape" feature analyses the images and intensifies the key colours. In addition, the "Mist Removal" option automatically reduces clouding, haziness or mist. The outcome is a clearer landscape or skyline with sharp contours and a bright sky.

Face detection function
The simple touch
Whether you're on holiday, at a party or spending time with your family - people are particularly popular subjects for a photo. It's always a pity when faces turn out blurred on a picture. The Face Detection function now offers the perfect solution, recognizing the individual faces or even entire groups, and automatically applying the best possible setting.

Hand-held night scene
Steady hand
With the newly developed image processor EXILIM Engine 5.0, your camera recognizes dark or night scenes automatically. Without the help of a tripod, the EX-H30 reduces camera shakes, creating sharp, bright portraits and night shots.

BEST SHOT programmes
You don't need to be an expert to create great photos
Whether portrait or party: your EXILIM EX-H30 adapts flexibly to a whole host of requirements. To ensure that all your photos and movies are a success from the start, the flat digital camera comes with 36 presettings for a wide variety of situations. With BEST SHOT, you can also create and save your own settings, which can be selected at any time.

Picture quality
Camera type *
There are a number of common types of digital cameras: compact cameras, bridge cameras, mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC) and single lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Bridge cameras 'bridge the gap' between the low-end compact and high-end professional (SLR) cameras. Also MILCs populate this mid-segment by combining the larger sensors and interchangeable lenses of DSLRs with the live-preview viewing system of compact cameras.
Compact camera
Megapixel *
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
16.1 MP
Image sensor size *
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Maximum image resolution *
Resolution is the amount of detail held by an image. The higher the resolution, the better (sharper) the image. The maximum image resolution produces the best image.

Total megapixels
A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 × 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 × 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
