Casio extended its line of point-and-shoot cameras today, topped by this Exilim Zoom EX-Z1050. Building on its Z1000 predecessor's 10.1-megapixel imager and 3x optical zoom, this nice-looking tinycam slims down its form factor to an even smaller size. Dang, the thing's svelte for a camera—it's getting into cellphone-thin territory at just 24.2mm with a light aluminum body that weighs just 4.5 oz. Even so, it still has that nice big 2.6-inch viewscreen out back.

Beyond its waif-thin form factor, its most notable feature is its ability to shoot seven frames per second until you fill up the memory card, a power spec that's unusual for a point-and-shoot. Look for it in the regulation black and silver and then pink and purplish-blue for the whimsical. Take a look at those cool colors after the jump, which we're actually starting to like.

Heck, it's a point-and-shoot. Save the serious black and silver for that DSLR you've got your eye on. Anyway, It'll run around $451.
