ZR-1000 Limited Edition

It's a black and chrome edition with a brown leather ever-ready case and strap.

Looks nice, although it seems to be trying to cash in on the recent retro theme and limited edition craze.

Back in 2006, I bought a Casio EX-Z750 and carried it everywhere; in fact, it was the last Z750 that DigitalRev had in stock at that time, and I was so anxious to get it!  With a reasonably bright and very sharp 36mm f2.8 zoom lens, a real optical viewfinder and boatloads of fancy functions, it became the camera I carried even when I held no other.  I sometimes look back on that time and think nostalgically about carrying just one tiny camera that did everything, and not having to worry about a bulky and heavy bag full of gear, or even a rangefinder/mirrorless ILC and a few lenses.  A camera I can slip into a pocket and not even think about until I need it.  The ZR-1000 tempts me to get one in an attempt to relive or resume those days!

Casio have done away with the optical viewfinder and seem to be concentrating on these high speed cameras, although it also seems like they have no marketing, and no desire to push anything in the US, UK or Australia!
