Casio launches EX-ZR800 compact in Japan with 5-axis image stabilization

With the smartphone hordes banging at their gates, compact camera manufacturers are being forced to up their games. As such, Casio's just launched a 16-megapixel, 18X zoom EX-ZR800 Exilim engine-equipped model with features like continuous shooting, "night shot" ISO 25,600 sensitivity, HDR and five axis stabilization. Unlike with the Olympus SH-50, however, the latter feature works on stills only and not video to correct translational and rotational camera shake. You'll also get 1080p / 30fps H.264 video, a 25-450mm zoom range, f/3.5-7.0 aperture, time-lapse, 5fps burst speed, selective blur, and "triple shot" exposure, which saves an image before you even press the shutter. The EX-ZR800 will bring that rather impressive feature set to Japan in red, white or black on August 23rd for 40,000 yen (about $410). There's no indication of a western arrival, but we'd expect it to trickle over to Europe and the US shortly afterwards -- check the (translated) source for more.
