Casio has unveiled two new entry-level digital compact cameras, the Exilim EX-N5 and the Exilim EX-N50. The new models have rounded bodies that are easy to grip, and employ a CMF Design approach that considers not only colour, but also material and finish. Each of the new cameras has a CCD with an effective resolution of 16.1 megapixels and a 26-156mm equivalent lens. The Casio EX-N5 features a two–tone silver ring around the lens and comes in black, silver, white, and red. The Exilim EX-N50 sports a textured pinstripe pattern and a pearly finish. “The look changes slightly depending on the angle of the light, while the pearly shine and subdued color scheme creates an elegant impression,” the company says. The EX-N50 comes in three colors: silver, blue and red. Pricing for the new cameras has yet to be confirmed.
