Satisfy Their Craving
Camera manufacturers have responded to the blog and social networking frenzy with “shoot to share” web-ready cameras. Built-in features facilitate quick uploads to YouTube, Flickr and blogs with minimal fuss. The explosion of social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace has only fueled the fire, sparking feature-specific cameras to satiate the voracious appetites of online junkies. The following should give retailers a good sense of which product fits a particular customer.
For obsessive YouTubers, Casio’s Exilim Zoom line is the perfect out-of-the-box solution. At the top of the lineup is the 10.1 megapixel Exilim EX-Z1080. Casio simplifies the laborious process of capturing, digitizing, resizing and encoding video. A “YouTube Capture Mode” shoots digital video at optimum size and quality with next generation MPEG-4 H.264 format. This mode delivers video at 640x480 and a frame rate of up to 30 frames per second, for high resolution capture and smaller file sizes.
Exclusive “YouTube Uploader for CASIO” software comes bundled with the Exilim for seamless upload in two easy steps. Connect the camera
to its dock to initiate a user-friendly software interface that downloads your clips from the camera. Easily add metatags, titles and descriptions to clips for searchability, and simply click to publish your movie directly to YouTube.
