Casio has today announced its new "Flagship Exilim" compact digital camera which packs an unnatural twelve megapixels into its 1/1.7" CCD sensor and helps to deal with camera shake thanks to a CCD-shift style stabilization system. The EX-Z1200SR also features automatic ISO which is dependent on the speed of the subject (several other manufacuters have a similar feature). Other key specs are a three times optical zoom lens, 2.8" LCD monitor, H.264 video clips and SDHC support. Perhaps telling a little more of the performance of the CCD the maximum default sensitivity is ISO 400 with ISO 800 and 1600 available as a 'Best Shot' scene option.
