One of my favourite shots with Miniature filter

My recent acquisition of the new Casio Exilim EX-ZR20 compact camera, powered by a 16.1MP high-sensitivity CMOS sensor supporting 8x optical zoom (16x multi-frame SR zoom), could not have come at a better time. It became my companion during my recent 3-night stay at the Royal Orchid Sheraton, Bangkok.

It’s actually been a while since I’ve not lugged my trusty mirrorless Sony NEX-3 on my travels but I must say the EX-ZR20 makes it all too easy with its compact pocketable size and some highly nifty features. Its big plus point – the 0.26 second shooting interval, possibly the quickest compact cameras I’ve ever used. Not forgetting the superquick 0.13 second high speed autofocus (AF). You’ll never, ever miss a shot (except if you forget to bring the camera along!). Take it out of your pocket, power it on, shoot. Without being too technical, the speed is quite astonishing.

In this mini-review, I’ll be posting some shots taken with the EX-ZR20’s useful filter modes, specifically Miniature and Sepia under the Art Shot modes in Best Shot (BS). If you’re familiar with Instagram and similar phone-camera apps, then miniature is one of the popular filters out there.

Bangkok, being one of my favourite cities in the world, was a source of interesting sights, colours and textures – the perfect canvas to test the EX-ZR20 on. Enjoy the pics below!
