Casio has just announced a new addition to its compact camera range this week with the Exilim EX-ZR300. The camera is said to be equipped with a 16.1-megapixel sensor and apparently features a 24-300mm, f/3.0-5.9, 12.5 X Zoom lens. According to reports, the compact EX-ZR300 is designed to turn on for ready shooting in less than a second like the Exilim EX-ZR15 and Casio has equipped it with an ISO range that begins at 80 and goes all the way up to 12,800.
In addition to that, the EX-ZR300 is capable of capturing 1080p video at 30 frames-per-second or videos at a resolution of 640 x 480 at 120 frames-per-second. According to Casio, the internal battery for the camera will last for 500 pictures on a single full charge. The Casio Exilim EX-ZR300 looks to be the follow-up camera to the EX-ZR200 that we first saw at CES earlier this year. For now, there has been no news as to when the camera will be available in the US nor how much it will be but rest assured because when we find out, we will be sure to let you know.
