Casio has introduced the Exilim Zoom EX-Z19 compact camera, adding a whole megapixel on its predecessor the EX-Z8, while saving a few pounds off it too.

The camera features 9.1 megapixels and has a 3x optical zoom. It can take photos in HD and has a 2.6-inch LCD screen to preview your images on before you upload them to your computer.

Features on the camera include face detection and an "easy" mode for complete beginners that features a cut down menu to avoid confusion.

The camera comes in a tange of colours, from silver and black to pink and green. You can also select your menu screen to match the colour of your camera with six to choose from.

Body measurements for the EX-Z19 are 92.5mm wide by 55mm high by 23.mm thick, making it pocket friendly.

Although perhaps not a camera for the budding amateur photographer, it's a nice little camera for your snapshots on days and nights out, and at £119 won't break the bank either.

The EX-Z19 is available now.
