Why doesnt Casio make big zooms?
I mean over 4x. All of their P&S are 3x or 4x zoom.
Why no 10x, 12x? Why no hybrid cameras?
What does Casio offer over or more than Kodak, Pentax, Fuji, Panasonic, etc?
I just dont see better prices or value of Casio P&S's.
Minolta and HP are out of the camera biz; Pentax is close to it.
If Casio goes, what special will we lose?

This one is pretty interesting (and look at it's speed). ;-)

Casio EXILIM Pro EX-F1

It's using this Sony sensor. I figured we'd see more companies offering products with it by now:

only 6mp for $800, I dont think so.

The Lumix FZ50 goes for $450.

But, the Panasonic can't take still photos at 60 frames per second. ;-)
