Casio announces Exilim EX-Z5 compact

Casio has just announced a new member of the Exilim family, a 5 megapixel shooter with 3x optical zoom called the EX-Z5. Successor to the Exilim EX-Z4, the new Z5 also sports a 2.5-inch TFT LCD (but as usual, no optical viewfinder), an odd 8.3MB of internal memory (expandable via SD/MMC), and the usual suite of burst mode, in-camera image enhancement, and multiple flash options. Of special interest to photo buffs will be the Revive Shot function, which lets you take a picture of an old photograph for the camera to perform a little digital restoration on, all without taking your photos out of the album. No word yet on pricing or availability, but with Casio calling the Z5 a "perfect companion for the summer," it's probably a safe bet to expect this model on shelves prior to September 21st.
