Casio has released the Exilim Hi-Zoom EX-V7, which the company claims is the thinnest digital camera to offer a 7x optical zoom lens. The lens doesn't protrude from the camera's body, enabling the unit to be only 25.5mm thick.
The small camera is 60mm high and 95.5mm wide, and features a 7.2-megapixel CCD. The sensor includes a new CCD shift system that mechanically compensates for camera shake. It can also automatically analyze the velocity and vector of a moving subject and sets the most appropriate ISO sensitivity and shutter speed.
