Summary: The Casio EXILIM EX-Z270 packages image stabilisation, one-touch HD movie recording (including YouTube mode), Subject Tracking AF and a bundle of other features into a small, affordable body. Available in four colours it’s likely to appeal to a wide range – particularly given its £150 price tag. Whilst not as high a performer as more premium compacts available on the market, the Z270 offers a very fair balance on the affordability scale.
Pros: Affordable, one-touch button HD movie recording, 28mm wide angle
Cons: High ISO of poor quality, macro not especially proficient
