Summary: The S880 looks great, is fast, easy to use, and shoots pretty good movies. If its images favour bright sunlight and close-up party snaps, that’s exactly what style-conscious punters will be using it for.
Summary: Overall, the Casio Exilim Card EX-S880 is a slim, stylish snapper – it looks good, it takes lovely pictures at lower ISO settings (and when the focus is right!) and it has great auto shooting features too. It’s just a shame there are so many niggles. On final analysis, Casio has ‘pimped’ the S880 to overload and I have to ask is it all worth it? The bits that the S880 pulls off are good, and yes, the picture quality is nice when everything falls into place.
Pros: Extensive ‘Best Shot’ modes, ‘YouTube’ feature, ‘Face Recognition’ AF (and face storage feature), Price.
Cons: Inconsistency of picture quality, Inconsistent Auto Focus, Compromises made between its look, practicality and handling.

Excerpt: This means buttons, and quite a lot of them. However, the Casio Exilim EX-S880's design is such that a total of eleven switches and a cursor pad area presented in such a tidy and well thought-out way that the camera never seems cluttered.
