Guess they couldn't let Pentax hog the spotlight for too long because Casio's just announced five new compact
digital cameras of their own, including four new Exilims. Here we go:
The Casio Exilim Pro EX-P700 is an upgrade to their Exilim Pro EX-P600, getting a bump up to seven megapixels but keeping the same 2-inch LCD screen and 4x optical zoom lens.

The Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z50 and Exilim Zoom EX-Z55 (pictured above) are pretty much the same, both have a resolution of 5.3 megapixels and a 3x optical zoom lens, with the main difference being that the Z55 has a slightly larger LCD screen than the Z50 (2.5-inch vs. 2-inch). Battery life on both models is supposed to be 10% better than that of the EX-Z40.

Casio claims that the Casio Exilim Card EX-S100 is the world's smallest digital camera with optical zoom and we're inclined to agree with them. Made of stainless steel, the EX-S100 is just 17mm thick, has a resolution 3.2 megapixels, a 2-inch LCD screen, and a 2.8x optical zoom lens.

The six megapixel Casio QV-R61 is meant as an entry-level model for their QV series of cameras, and has a 3x optical zoom lense and a 2-inch LCD screen (you can probably tell we're less excited about this one).
