The new model is called the Z850, which was announced in February 2006, which was one year after the Z750 was launched (in February 2005, almost two years ago). ;-)

Manufacturers don't usually "advertise" when model has reached the end of it's production run.

But, as a general rule, a digital camera isn't going to be a current model more than about 12 to 18 months (shorter for non-DSLR models, longer for higher end DSLR models). The manufacturing run may be far shorter than that (but, they may continue to advertise it to sell the copies that are still available).

In the case of the Z750, it appears from looking at the price search engines that the distributors probably sold out a long time ago. Very few reputable dealers still have it in stock. Most are drop shipping from distributors. So, when the distributors run out (as it appears has happened), the number of dealers that have a product available drop significantly.

The production run was probably over a very long time ago (i.e., probably when the Z850 was launched earlier this year). So, very few vendors have the Z750 left, except the larger vendors that have their own stock (like Ritz/Wolf).

I did a search and found these dealers selling the Casio EX-Z750.

Hope this helps.
