While most cameras built for ease of use tend to look like they've been made by Fisher Price, Casio has always ensured that its no fuss range looks just as good as the rest of the line-up.The new 6.2MP, 3x zooming EX-Z65 is no different. Picking up from the equally svelte Z60 and Z70 snappers, it keeps the point-and-shoot Easy mode and adds an Exilim first – a 2.6in widescreen display.Sadly, little Z65 doesn't use it to screen pocket movies but for showing extra info and quick access menus during snap time. It also comes in handy for taking shots pre-cropped for viewing on a 16:9 widescreen telly, if that's your bag.Sports fans will welcome the usual inclusion of Casio's Anti-Shake DSP, which despite the name doesn't do much to eliminate shaky hands, but does do a mean job of automatically editing out the blur from moving subjects.No firm word on pricing yet but we're expecting it around the £140 mark when it makes it to the shelves later this month.
