Casio unfurls pair of 14-megapixel compact cameras

updated 09:00 am EDT, Tue August 3, 2010

Casio S200 and Z800 pack 4X zoom, 720p video

Casio today launched two new Exilim point-and-shoots with relatively traditional designs but raising the company's standards for basic cameras. The slimmer EX-S200 and the thicker EX-Z800 both capture at 14 megapixels with 4X optical lenses. Both use their creator's newer Exilim Engine 5.0 processing and support 720p video.

The differences mostly revolve around camera bodies, as the S200 has a thinner overall frame. It also touts an AF lamp for better focusing in the dark and a Quick Mode designed for concerts and other opportunities. The setting turns the camera on at high speed with a shutter press, allows capturing and previewing a photo, and then shuts down on its own.

Uncharacteristically for a Casio launch, no immediate pricing or ship dates are available. American launches are probable for one or both of the new Exilims and should carry low prices to reflect the features.
