Casio today announced the Exilim Card EX-S600D, an ultra slim 6.0 megapixel camera offering Casio's Anti-Shake DSP, a 3x zoom and a 2.2-inch screen. The EX-S600D is the same model as the EX-S600 (announced in October last year) but adds high quality DivX movie capability. The EX-S600D will only be available to the European market.
Norderstedt, June 19, 2006 — CASIO EUROPE GmbH and its parent company, CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD., have announced the release of the EXILIM CARD EX-S600D, an ultra-slim, card-sized, high-resolution digital camera. This latest 6.0 megapixel addition to the stylish EXILIM digital camera series can also take high-quality movies in DivX® format, a video compression technology developed by DivX, Inc. of the United States.
Fitting easily into a pocket, EXILIM CARD digital cameras are ready to go wherever their users go, so no one has to miss a once-in-a-lifetime photographic moment again.

By building DivX into the new EX-S600D, CASIO has expanded the world of movie-making fun, making it easier than ever before to give the gift of a special moment on DVD to friends and family.
