The EX-ZS30 has dedicated buttons for shoot, view, and delete, making operation easy even for
first-time users. It is equipped with Premium Auto, which automatically analyzes the scene to

range of functions for fun photo taking. The camera features Art Shot with eight artistic effects that
alter the stylistic impression of photos (Toy Camera, Soft Focus, Light Tone, Pop, Sepia,
Monochrome, Miniature, and Fish Eye), as well as Dynamic Photo, which lets users combine a
choice of eight preset moving characters with a captured still image. The EX-ZS30 comes in five
color options: silver, black, purple, white, and pink.
