The Audio Snapshot feature lets you add comments or other audio to
your still images. You can record audio as you record the image,
or add it later.
Voice Recording lets you keep audio records of meeting or create voice
memos while on the go. The camera's built-in memory (10MB) provides enough
capacity to record approximately 40 minutes of audio.
7-point Multi-AF simplifies focusing
7-point Multi AF means you never need to worry about focusing again. The
camera automatically selects one of seven focus points based on which one
is aligned with the nearest subject, and focuses on that point. This helps
to avoid loss of foreground subjects and minimizes the chance of the image
being out of focus.
The Macro Mode of the EX-Z4U lets you move in to distances ranging from 50
cm to as close as 6 cm for really intimate close ups of everything from
portraits to flowers, pets, food, and more. The Macro Mode also supports
zooming in the range of 1X to 1.8X.
Pan Focus Mode for instant recording
Pan Focus makes it possible to record an image virtually the moment you
press the shutter release button. It helps to ensure that you are able to
capture exactly the moment you want.
An on-screen histogram can be used to check the exposure of an image
before you record it. The shape of the histogram graph provides you with
important feedback about the relative brightness of the image. A histogram
that is tilted to the left indicates underexposure, while tilting to the
right indicates overexposure. Optimal exposure is indicated when the
histogram is in the center.

GREAT camera for casual photographers..., December 6, 2003
Reviewer: Ashley Ellis
What I mean is.. this camera works GREAT for people like me who just want
to take pictures at family events and parties, not for people who are
heavy in to photography and want alot of control over their camera.
This camera is tiny (about the size of a credit card, but 1/2" thick) so
it fits easily in to a jeans pocket or coat pocket. It's incredibly easy
to transport. It's also incredibly easy to operate! It turns on super
quick, you flick the switch to picture taking mode and hit a button. There
aren't 20 million buttons and switches on this camera, so even a novice
like me can easily operate it.
It has some faults - the zoom feature takes HORRIBLE pictures - so don't
use it! It also doesn't take very good movies. But for taking pictures at
family events, or taking pictures of a new baby, or new puppy (in my
case!) it works GREAT. I absolutely adore this camera and I use it all the
time! I highly recommend it as a camera for digital camera dummies like
But can it take movies?, October 19, 2003
I had an Ex-Z3 which I sent back as soon as I heard that the Z4 was coming
out. After all, the Z4 is supposed to have 4.0 M resolution, better
battery management, and 60 sec. movies and all at the same price.
BUT...after having waited till it became available and then doing some
research apparently there is a BIG difference: the US version does not
support avi movies as did the Z3. The rest of the world does not have this
problem, just US.
While I had the Z3 it was great, but not outstanding. I appreciated its
compact size and the avi movies. Picture resolution and color was good,
but color was not as good as the Olympus C-2000 (2.0 Mp) I traded up from.
The flash is weak, but it is a smaller camera, so what do you expect. The
main selling point is the size, because if you don't carry it around, what
good is having a high quality camera?
GREAT for Mom's who want to capture daily photo ops., December 17, 2005

I've had this camera with me every day for almost two years old and I
still love it! I have a toddler and an infant whom present me with
constant photo opportunities, so I carry this camera in a small bag in my
little purse. This camera has freed me up (where film and larger digitals
didn't). I can (and do) take pictures all the time (just over 6000 in 21
months). I would advise people with larger hands (especially men) to get a
hold of a model (store/friend) as the buttons are pretty small, but for
most ladies, it works great.
