Casio is on a roll with the announcements today, continuing on with the introduction of colorful EX-Z2300 and EX-ZR10 ultra-compact digital cameras.

Based on the spec sheets, both of these seem like capable pocket cameras. The higher-end of the two is definitely the EX-ZR10 with HDR technology and full HD 1080p video recording. It also boasts something called HDR-ART mode, which allows the photographer to add some artistic touches here and there.

Let's take a closer look at each of these new Casio point-and-shoots to get a better idea of where they stand:

EX-Z2300 (pictured above)

  • 14.1-megapixel CCD sensor
  • 3-inch TFT LCD screen (960 x 480 resolution)
  • Exilim Engine 5.0 processor
  • 5x optical zoom
  • CCD-shift image stabilization
  • 720p HD video recording mode
  • ISO range: 50 to 3,200
  • SD/SDHC card slot
  • Battery life: 580 snapshots on a single full charge

EX-ZR10

  • 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor
  • 3-inch TFT LCD screen (960 x 480 resolution)

Pricing hasn't been announced on either of these compact cams, nor has a North American release timeline. Supposedly we're never going to see it, but maybe you can pick up one of these at a Duty Free airport shop on another continent.
