One with a 7x optical zoom and 8.1 megapixels,
the other with high ISO 6400 sensitivity and 10.1 megapixels
Casio Europe GmbH and its parent company, Casio Computer Co., 
Ltd., released two new EXILIM digital cameras today. The EX-V8 
features a slim yet powerful optical zoom like other models in the 
EXILIM Hi-Zoom series, and the EX-Z1080, the latest addition to the 
core EXILIM Zoom series, packs an outstanding range of functions into
a compact size.
The EX-V8 delivers 8.1 effective megapixels in a shape slim and 
compact enough to fit in the palm of the hand, and features a 7x 
optical inner zoom lens designed for quiet operation. The EX-V8 also 
offers four blur reduction technologies, including a CCD-shift image 
stabilization mechanism.
The 10.1 megapixel EX-Z1080 produces beautiful photographs even 
when printed large. It also enables high sensitivity photography up 
to a maximum of ISO 6400, and is ideal for photographing darker 
scenes and reducing blur caused by shaky hands and subject movement.
Both new models incorporate the EXILIM Engine 2.0 high-performance
image processing module, which allows high quality movies to be 
recorded at the high compression rate of the next-generation H.264 
standard. They also feature Casio's YouTube[TM] Capture Mode, which 
enables users to shoot and save movies at the optimum size, quality 
and other settings for YouTube[TM], the world's most popular online 
site for sharing videos. Casio has also included an exclusive 
software application that makes it fast and simple to upload movies 
to You Tube[TM]. This makes it easier than ever for people to enjoy 
"snapshot movies" of everyday fun, trips, and other occasions.
