Casio Exilim Card EX-S770 Adds .1 Inch, Wide Screen

Casio has enhanced its reed-thin Exilim Zoom EX-Z750, an incremental upgrade it's dubbed the Exilim Card EX-S770. Seems like we were just getting used to that 2.7-inch LCD on its predecessor, which was Casio's biggest viewscreen ever, and now the company's added a full .1 inch to the screen and made it wider—now it's a 2.8-inch super-bright widescreen but still keeps the camera's 17mm profile that's scarcely thicker than a credit card.

Still keeping its 7.2-megapixel CCD and 3x optical zoom, Casio added wide aspect MPEG-4 movie shooting to the mix, giving you 16:9 aspect ratio video capability at 704x384 pixels. The company also added Data Transport, software which converts documents, e-mail or web pages to JPEG format so you can view them on the camera's viewscreen. Could be useful in a pinch, but you might need a microscope. There's no word on ship date or pricing yet..
