The EX-M20U exhibits the compact configuration that has made the EXILIM the camera of choice for personal digital imaging. It is more compact than previous models, without any sacrifice to function, and it's stainless steel case, which resist discoloration, are finished to a high gloss using Casio's "Ex Fine Blast Treatment". The grip is made of strong, fine ceramic material that fits comfortably in the hand and adds an elegant touch to the overall design.

* Mini card-size body that is more compact than ever before!

A startup time of about 0.9 seconds (flash off), a release time lag of about 0.01 seconds, and an interval between shots of about one second all mean that those special moments won't be missed while waiting for your camera to turn on. These new models also feature high-speed playback image scrolling that operates at a speed of about 0.1 seconds per image.

The battery life of this cameraa has been extended by 85% over previous models, thanks to a new low-power design.
* Macro mode in a card size camera
CASIO original technology was applied to design a new lens that makes it possible to enjoy macro mode imaging in a thin, card-size package. This new lens, which also features an automatic lens cover, allows close-up photos to be taken from as little as 30cm away, making the EX-M20U the first fixed-focus EXILIM models to be equipped with macro capabilities.

In addition to the standard features, the EX-M20U comes with a built-in microphone and speaker for recording and playback of voice recordings and audio snapshots.


Although the thickness of these new models remains the same (.44") as the EX-S2, Stack MCM (Multi-Chip Module) chip mounting has made it possible to reduce the surface area of these models by about 10% over previous models.
