Casio announced a slight update to its Exilim line, bumping up the EX-Z70 to this latest model, the Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z700. Keeping its 7.2 megapixel CCD and svelte 20.5mm thinness, the difference between the two—besides that extra zero in the model number—is a slightly larger viewfinder, where the EX-Z700 has a 2.7-inch LCD viewscreen compared to its predecessor's 2.5-inch LCD.

There's still a 3x optical zoom and a simplified menu for first-time shooters. Pricing wasn't announced on this model, but it's said to be ready to ship in August. This is a fairly rapid succession of updates, considering that its predecessor was available this month. We'd say go for the one with the bigger viewfinder, even though its diagonal dimension is just a slight .2 inches larger.

Looks like a closer competitor to the Z600. I am a huge fan of the Z600 and sell tons of those little buggers at work.

If anybody is reading this and wondering as to whether a Casio would be a good camera choice or not, the answer is HELL YES!

Great qualtiy in both picture and workmanship, good-looking, fast, easy, and the newer ones are better on batteries (more eco-friendly?).
