Casio Exilim Alexandria VA

The Casio Exilim EX-P505 represents a new class of camera that we call hybrids, which combine a full-fledged digital still camera and a digital camcorder. (Check out the preview of Sony's entry, the DSC-M1, and look for a review soon.) These cameras attempt to change the way we look at both kinds of devices.
