Casio unveils 10.1MP digital camera


Casio has always been very good at pakcing a lot into very small packages, and this new 10.1 megapixel Exilim Zoom with wide-format LCD display is no exception.

The  2.8-inch (230,400 pixel) Super Bright LCD is a big plus on a small unit, allowing you to enjoy your snaps as soon as they’ve been taken. As an added bonus, Casio uses the extra screen space to offer some new functionality, including simultaneous viewing of a wide angle and a telephoto shot and there’s room for a set of icons to save you working through the full menu system.

Like most new digital cameras, the Exilim Zoom features Anti Shake DSP, which reduces blurring due to unsteady hands or moving subjects. There’s also 3x optical zoom  and 4x digital zoom, a "Best Shot" function, 8MB of built-in memory (which can be boosted via SD/MMC) and a strong battery life that should cover you for up to 360 shots.

Expect to see it in the shops sometime next month with a price tag of around £380.
