Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z75
The 7.2 million pixel Exilim Zoom EX-Z75 is the second new offering from Casio today. The replacement to the EX-Z70 (announced last June), the EX-Z75 - like the EX-Z1050 above - adds a wide aspect (14:9) 2.6-inch screen, but is otherwise a fairly minor upgrade.
Casio Introduces Stylish New 7.2 Megapixel Digital Camera
