Casio Exilim EX-Z75 7.2MP Digital Camera

I don’t endorse products, but I am compelled to point out what I think is a very good camera at a terrific price: The Casio Exilim EX-Z75 7.2MP Digital Camera is now at Amazon for $169.

I cannot believe how inexpensive digital cameras have become.

I have the 5 mega-pixel EX-Z50 — purchased it almost two years ago at closer to $300 bucks. At the time, it was a good price for a good camera.  However, it does not have many of the features of the EX-Z75.

These new models blow it away at nearly half the price. Its available in Blue, Black and classic Silver. (I can’t figure out why the ugly pink is so much more). 

The next step up is the 10 megapixel Casio Exilim EX-Z1050 — but I cannot see what justifies the 33% premium over the 7.2MG models.

Even more astounding, the 1 GB cards are now under $15 (See this:  SanDisk SDSDB-1024-A10 1 GB Secure Digital Card). I think I paid $49 for a half GB card "way back" then.

I may end up buying a 2nd one as a just-in-case-camera. If it breaks or gets lost, its not a $500 hit.
