Casio has announced an updated version of its Exilim Card EX series. The new Casio EX series gains not only an extra megapixel on its CCD – making it a 6 megapixel camera – but a brighter screen, and image stabilization during video recording. Its predecessor, the Ex-S500, had a battery life of about 200 shots. The EX-S600 Casio improves that rate to 300 shots. We can only hope that they have improved image quality, because who really cares how many shots you can take or at what resolution if they look like junk.

The Exilim should be available sometime early next year. No word on price as of yet.
