The camera never lies. However, it’s open to manipulation. For less-than-photogenic subjects that need some flattery, Casio’s 12,1 megapixel EXILIM EX-S12 with Make-Up mode performs digital cosmetic surgery. That’s right: it detects faces and records them in a way that makes them look better. It covers wrinkles, freckles and pimples of the model in the portrait – and there are 12 different levels. You can preview the outcome on the 6,8 cm LCD screen.
Other features include a 3x optical zoom, HD movie recording, tracking autofocus, 41 scene settings (including YouTube mode), and anti-shake technology. Price: about R4 000. Contact distributors James Ralph on 011-314 8888 or visit www.jamesralph.co.za
