Casio EX-Z19The Casio EX-Z19 is a new user-friendly 9.3 megapixel digital camera. The Z19 offers significant enhancements in function and performance whilst continuing to focus on style and design.

It features the Auto Shutter function, which enables users to take their picture just at the moment of a lovely smile or when hand shake ceases as the camera automatically detects the right moment to take a photo. The Casio Z19 also has a Movie Button, which lets users record H.264 movies at the touch of a button. The Casio EX-Z19 comes in five striking colours, very pink, light pink, green, silver and black, and costs £129.99 in the UK.
