Norderstedt, January 2007 - CASIO Europe GmbH and its parent company CASIO Computer Co., Ltd., announced the introduction of the EXILIM Zoom EX-Z75, a new addition to its stylish series of EXILIM® digital cameras. This latest member of the EXILIM family features a newly developed wide LCD display for improved image viewing and ease of use, and delivers an effective 7.2 megapixels.

This new model follows CASIO's release last year of the 7.2-megapixel EX-Z70, a camera that featured the slim looks, quick shooting style, and large LCD display of an EXILIM while also making both camera setup and shooting simpler than ever. Families and other casual users enthusiastically welcomed the EX-Z70.

The new high-quality, high-performance EX-Z75 retains all the advanced functions of the EX-Z70, including Anti Shake DSP for reducing photo blur due to shaky hands or moving subjects. Its generous new 2.6-inch wide LCD display, makes it enjoyable for users to capture breathtaking wide aspect ratio images, and also makes the camera functions easier to see and operate.

The EX-Z75 can display information on the right side of the ample screen, separate from the subject shown on the monitor while shooting. It enables users to quickly change settings on the information display when shooting. In Easy Mode, menus for simplifying a wide array of camera settings (flash, self-timer and image size) are also shown on the right side of the monitor for easy viewing and use.
