Casio Exilim Z-150
(Updated with US launch info) Casio on Monday unveiled the Exilim Zoom Z-150. Although relatively low resolution at 8.1 megapixels, the camera compensates for this with a 28mm, 4X zoom wide-angle lens that both shoots further and captures more of the subject. Image stabilization is onboard, as is Casio's frequent YouTube video mode that captures video that can easily be uploaded to the video website.
The camera handles light sensitivity up to ISO 1600, offers face detection for portraits, and has a relatively large three-inch preview LCD. Casio ships the camera in multiple colors and will launch the camera in the US for September with a $200 price.
