At a pre-CES press conference today, Sony unveiled a replacement for its entry-level Alpha A100 SLR, the Sony Alpha DSLR-A200.

At a press conference this afternoon, Casio unveiled its long-awaited, phenomenally fast EXILIM Pro EX-F1.

Other specs and features include a high-speed 6.0 megapixel CMOS sensor and a 12x optical zoom.
According to information presented at a press conference this afternoon, a completely new line of Casio EXILIM compact cameras will be available for purchase this spring. New models include the EXILIM Card EX-S10, an ultra-thin card camera, the high-style EXILIM Zoom EX-Z80, and the wide-angle 10.1 megapixel EXILIM Zoom EX-Z100 and EX-Z200.
