The Casio EXILIM EX-Z60 is a stylish looking camera with a simple, clean design that should prove pocket-friendly thanks to gentle curves at the edges, and mostly smooth surfaces all round. The Casio Z60 fits a larger than average 2.5" LCD display with a resolution of 115,200 pixels into its compact body, but lacks any form of optical viewfinder - meaning there's no way to save battery power even if accurate framing isn't necessary.
Images on the Casio EX-Z60 are captured with the combination of a 1/2.5" six megapixel CCD imager, and an Exilim-branded 3x optical zoom lens that provides a fairly standard 35mm-equivalent focal range of 38 - 114mm. Other features include 8.3MB of built-in storage memory, SD / MMC storage slot, NTSC / PAL video and USB 2.0 High Speed data connectivity (rather faster than the USB 2.0 Full-Speed / USB 1.1 connections still offered on some cameras), as well as a built-in flash and a macro mode that allows focusing as close as 10 centimeter. Power comed courtesy of a proprietary Lithium Ion rechargeable battery. The Casio EXILIM EX-Z60 goes on sale from mid April 2006,with a list price of $250. Two color variants will be available - black and silver.
