You'd normally think of watches when you think of Casio. Not a digital camera. But they've made one. Here's the new Exilim EX-ZR1000 which makes it easy to flip around an LCD display and has a built in stand to keep it propped up in either portrait or landscape modes.

The $450 16.1-megapixel shooter has a motion activated shutter release letting you trigger a two second countdown by just waving at the camera. It's also got a dedicated mode dial, a function that's rare on point and shoot models.

Zooming is controlled via a ring around the lens barrel letting you easily zoom in and out while snapping away.The Exilim EX-ZR1000 will come in November.
