When you take into account the size and small price tag that the Casio Exilim EX-Z80 comes with it would be harsh to be too hard on this camera. It must be one of the cheapest pocket cameras on the market. Picture quality may not be perfect, but the camera can still take a decent snapshot.
The Casio Exilim EX-Z80 is a remarkable camera in many ways. Not only is it the smallest 8-megapixel camera on the market, it has a number of advanced technical features not found on rival models. Design, build quality, performance and handling are all very good, and the AF system is amazing, but these attributes are somewhat let down by rather sub-standard image quality. Nonetheless, as a convenient pocket snapshot camera it’s hard to beat, and represents good value for its low price.
