[Review] Casio Exilim EX-ZR20: HDR Art

It certainly wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that the ultra-pocketable Casio Exilim EX-ZR20 compact camera is as versatile and talented as they come. Megapixel and optical/digital zoom prowess aside, the camera has impressed with its low-light sensitivity and super quick shutter. I consider it as one of the best cameras I’ve used for events and on the go.

Practicality aside though, this camera is also super fun. You know that it comes with a plethora of arty filters and modes. One such arty filter is HDR Art. HDR is defined as high dynamic range, where the camera takes multiple shots are different exposures, then merges into one giving the photographer a well-balanced, optimised shot. The HDR Art filter pushes it one step further, exaggerating saturation and vibrancy to give you a HDR shot with an artistic twist.

Check out some shots I’ve taken recently with HDR Art switched on.
