More pre-PMA goods for ya'll. This time it's two new compact shooters in the form of the Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z850 and EX-Z60. First the Z850 (pictured) which is pretty much the Z750 with an incremental bump to 8.1 megapixels, an improved shutter lag of just 0.003 seconds, and inclusion of a much needed anti-shake DSP. Otherwise, it's the same 3x optical zoom and 2.5-inch LCD we've seen before. The 6 megapixel EX-Z60 does away with the glass viewfinder on the Z850 yet fails to increase the LCD beyond 2.5-inches or lens beyond a 3x zoom in attempts to keep the all-metal package slim. Even though it's small, Casio claims to keep out the blur with image stabilization and near instant image recording via that low 0.002 seconds shutter release lag. Both cameras feature SD expansion. Still no word on pricing or availability. Z60 snaps after the break.
