Dreams can come true

Casio Exilim EX-S2 lens and viewfinderWanting a small digital camera I could take with me everywhere, I seriously considered the Casio Exilim EX-S1, before finally concluding:

“If the [EX-S1] had a resolution of two megapixels instead of one, I’d buy it immediately.”

Now via DPReview comes news that Casio “has announced a new two megapixel version of its ultra small, ultra thin ‘Exilim’ digital camera.” The EX-S2 is due to ship in the US on September 17. I hope I don’t have to wait too long for it to arrive in Australia.



I would think it would get there first, you're closer!

I just hope they don't allocate cameras based on a country's postition on the Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index 2002. With Australia down in 11th place, Casio might sell out the first production run before shipping any here at all.

Yep, we've bribed Casio for the entire first run.

I'm wanting that camera... get it yet? Would love to hear your thoughts on it.

No, I decided to go with the Sony DSC-F77, which is not yet available in Australia.

I'll write about it as soon as I buy one.
