Excerpt: Casio’s newest entry-level Exilim offers consumers a number of attractive options for its $180 price tag, including 720p HD video capture, a large 2.7-inch screen, and a sleek-looking metallic design.
Cons: Plastic case feels cheap, HD video inferior to dedicated mini camcorders, Extremely poor, low-resolution display, Dynamic mode poorly trims out backgrounds, Blur due to lack of optical image stabilization
Excerpt: The Z280 is a good reminder of how much the camera market has changed in recent months. With its 12-megapixel sensor, slinky, brushed aluminium body, wide-angle lens, optical image stabilisation and HD video mode, its sub-£150 price is remarkable.
Conclusion: I find Casio digital cameras can be a bit hit and miss. Not every digital camera can sit at the top of the tree. In my opinion the Casio Exilim EX-Z280 struggles to keep pace with the best quality models in the highly competitive pocket camera sector.
Pros: Options displayed on the right hand side of LCD screen - ease of use
