CES 2008: The new EXILIM EX-Z80 is a smart looking little camera: 8.1 megapixels and a 3x zoom wrapped in a compact and solid shell. Interesting features on this model include Auto Shutter to delay taking a picture until there is minimal camera shake and/or the subject has cracked a smile - face detection also makes an appearance. A new system of focus confirmation allows the user to choose an image which coalesces when focus has been achieved or breaks up if the camera will not lock on. Availability is scheduled for March 2008 with a price of $199.
