"What that brings you is the ability to capture a longer movie in good quality. So with our Z 750 and our S 500, with a one gigabyte card, you can get from 30 minutes to 1 hour of 640 by 480, or television quality video at 30 frames per second." The 7 megapixel Z-750 can be found for under 400 dollars. The 5 megapixel S500 sells for a similar price. What you're paying for there…is style….
"It is just over a half inch thick. It has a 2.2 inch screen. It has a 3X optical zoom lens. Even with a small size, you don't give up anything that you would normally have in your camera." In fact it adds some things…such as anti-shake technology…that you don't usually find. The S500 also comes in several different colors….helping Casio challenge rivals such as Sony and Canon…in design. Bloomberg Boot Camp, I'm Fred Fishkin.
