The second addition, the compact Casio Exilim EX-V8, features a 7x optical zoom, 8.1 megapixels, a 2.5-inch LCD screen, the same YouTube functionalities, plus four blur reduction technologies and image stabilisation. The EX-V8 is available in either silver or black.

Both cameras should be on display at IFA 2007 in Berlin this week, and due for release in September. UK pricing has not been confirmed.
