Casio announces compact camera with 7x zoom

Casio has recently announced the elegantly monikered EXILIM Hi-ZOOM EX-V7: [edited]

In recent years, a number of compact, high-performance digital cameras have appeared on the market, but there was a direct trade-off between zoom power and camera size. Users who wanted to capture subjects at a distance were forced to buy bulkier cameras or sacrifice zoom range for portability.

The camera introduces an innovative function for reducing photo blur, utilising mechanical CCD shift technology. It also combines Casio’s Anti Shake DSP with new motion analysis technology that selects the most appropriate ISO sensitivity and shutter speed to capture a moving photo subject.

It will be available in the States around March, for about $399.99.
