The Casio EX-Z850 has received two firmware updates. The updates are Firmware Version 1.10 and 1.1B. Both provide SDHC memory card support. In 1.1B HQ Mode movie quality is also improved. Unfortunately the HQ Mode field of view angle is now approximately 40% narrower. Movie quality improvements include reduced digital noise and enhanced line smoothing.
The EX-Z850 is an 8.1 megapixel camera with MPEG-4 movie recording capability, anti-shake DSP, and movie stabilizing functions.
