New Casio compact cameras

New from Casio is a pair of Exilim Zoom cameras, the 7.2-megapixel EX-Z75 and the 10.1-megapixel EX-Z1050. The Z75 comes equipped with 3x optical zoom and a 2.6-inch LCD, and also uses Casio's Anti-Shake DSP technology to reduce blur, though ISO sensitivity is capped at 400. Movies can be recorded in resolutions up to 640x480 at 30fps. Notably, while the camera controls aperture and shutter speed automatically, focus can be adjusted manually, unlike many other digital compacts. The Z1050 (pictured) shares similar features, but increases the ISO limit to 800, and can use tracking technology to adjust focus, ISO and shutter speed to keep up with moving targets. A better battery should provide up to 370 photos.

Both cameras make use of SD and MMC cards, as well as SDHC cards, which allow storage in excess of 4GB. A choice of colors includes black, silver, purple and pink. The Z1050 should be out soon for $300, while the Z75 will ship in March for $230.
