Casio kicked off this whole slimmed-down camera business in the first place with its Exilims, and it looks like it's damn well going to finish it – 'til the next round of releases anyway.Confidently carrying its 10MP club pass and super-slim snappers society card, the EX-Z1050 (pictured) clambers over the older Z1000 to be Casio's thinnest 10.1MP cam.At just 24mm thick it can still handle itself with a 3x optical zoom and 2.6in display. Its new Exilim Engine 2.0 snaps away at a pap-pleasing seven shots per second until the memory card explodes (or becomes full, whichever happens sooner).For the final finish, it gets a choice of four colours: traditional silver or black, gender specific blue or pink, or ostentatious gold.Also accompanying it will be the cheaper EX-275 with a "mere" 7.2MP. Look out for it in silver, blue and pink.
