Confirmed purchaser Techno Freak

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Small, solid, well built. Easy mode just right for people who want to point and shoot. Good battery life and rechargeable so dont have to always buy batteries. Video quality is excellent in the super high wide setting, also good on the lower settings as well. Something for everyone. Very fast startup and short gaps between taking pictures (im talking just over a second)
Bad points:
I have seen better image quality from other cameras at this price but the picture quality is still very good, Im just being a little picky.

Chris, Camberley Keen amateur photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, basic menu can be selected eliminating more complicated features, which is ideal for my teenage daughter
Bad points:
None really - would have been good if the wide angle of the lens was a bit wider (closer to 28mm in 35mm photography terns, rather than the 35 or 38 that it is)

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The EX-Z80, with 8.1 Megapixels, 3x optical zoom, and Exilim Engine 2.0, is a sleek little camera that can turn out big pictures. And although the camera is compact, the LCD isn’t—a 2.6 inch wide screen makes it simple to frame your perfect shot.

8.1 Megapixel Resolution
You’d be surprised what a few more million pixels can do. With Exilim 8.1 Megapixel resolution, your pictures will look like they’re going to pop out of any frame you put them in.

easy Mode
Easy Mode helps set your camera to take sharp photos every time without checking presets or fumbling with adjustments. With easy Menus in 3 settings (image size, flash and self-timer), easy Mode assures that crisp, first-rate photos result each time you click the shutter.

Exilim Engine 2.0
What’s beneath the hood of our innovative Exilims? Powerful versatility in an ultra-compact configuration. The Engine delivers sharper photos and higher-quality videos using less energy than ever before—and at faster speeds, thanks to an improved signal processor.

Auto Shutter
Let your Casio Exilim do the thinking for you. With Auto Shutter functions, your camera will detect the perfect time to snap your picture. The new Casio Exilim cameras are equipped with Auto Shutter Functions that will make blurry pictures a thing of the past.

Enhanced Video H.264 Wide
H.264 technology delivers superior-quality video, providing 30 frames per second at 640×480, which can be easily viewed on most video-sharing websites. With the wide video-shooting function (16:9 ratio 848×480), the Exilim plays true to your plasma or LCD television, regardless of size. The future of video is in your Exilim.

Movie Button
With the Movie Button on your Casio Exilim, you can record your favorite moments without having to change the settings on your camera. Finally, just point and record.

Drag and Drop Videos into iTunes™
Now it’s easier than ever to bring your photos and videos to your Apple devices. No more converting files. Simply drag and drop directly into iTunes and upload them in seconds to your iPod or iPhone. Now you can show off your favorite moments anytime, anywhere.

Prerecord Video Mode
Now you never have to worry about “just missing” a moment. With the Prerecord Video Mode, your camera is recording video before you even press the button. In Prerecord Video Mode, the Exilim captures 5 seconds of video and saves it into memory then adds it to your video when you press the shutter. Never miss a moment with Exilim.
