Looking to be the next YouTube star? The 8.1-megapixel Casio Exilim EX-S880 can record good-quality movies optimized for YouTube and upload them directly to the site. Unfortunately, image quality on still shots leaves a lot to be desired, especially...

Captures MPEG-4 video. Handy YouTube movie mode. Effective face detection and image stabilization

Poor image quality. Underpowered flash. Must use cradle to charge ; Watch the Casio Exilim EX-S880 Video Review

If you need a small camera for video recording, the EX-S880 does the job, but for quality still shots, look elsewhere.

Casio Exilim Card EX-S880


Does the trick in capturing photos and video.

Robust photo options ; Sleek design ; Shoots YouTube-optimized video

Cluttered controls ; Few manual photo controls ; Average video sound

Casio Exilim EX-S880


Affordable. Sturdy design. Excellent 18X zoom lens. Effective image stabilization. Can capture movies.

Dual image stabilization creates some image noise. Some shutter lag. No RAW file support.

Casio Casio Exilim EX-S880


The slim and attractive Casio Exilim EX-S880 adds a few twists to what you'd expect to find in a 3X-zoom, 8-megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera. The bright and sharp 2.8-inch LCD screen has an unusual 14:9 aspect ratio; when shooting at the...

Useful tracking mode keeps focus locked ; YouTube capture mode

Mediocre image quality

The EX-S880 costs $30 less than the EX-Z1080, but it has less resolution. Makes uploading video to YouTube nearly automatic.

Casio Exilim EX-S880 (black)


At just 0.7 inch deep and weighing only 5.1 ounces with battery and SD card, the EX-S880 cuts the same ultraslim, ultralight profile as the S770. It shares a layout almost identical to the S770's, with small, flat buttons and a flat joypad clustered...

Superslim digital camera; quick performance; family-priority face-detecting autofocus and autoexposure; includes YouTube uploading software.

Extremely soft pictures; doesn't really improve over its predecessor.

Soft pictures and few improvements mean you should give this marginally upgraded Casio Exilim EX-S770 digital camera a pass.

Casio Exilim EX-S880 YouTube Digital Camera


Casio's Exilim line of digital cameras has been very popular over the past few years, because of their speedy performance and compact size. Their newest Exilim offers the same small size and relatively speedy performance, but it also adds a new claim...

One area where the S880 lacks is in the image quality department, so people looking for excellent image quality in their digital camera should look elsewhere. This camera doesn't produce horrible images, but there are better cameras out there when it...

Casio Exilim EX-S880 Review


Casio's latest card camera, the Exilim EX-S880, hasn't changed much since its predecessor, the S770.

Quality build and finish ; Quick operation ; Very slim and attractive

Auto white balance struggles in some indoor lighting ; Underpowered flash ; Fairly noticeable edge and corner softness

The Casio Exilim Card cameras typically don't change much from their predecessors and the S880 is just a minor upgrade from the S770. The most significant updates are that the S880 has face detection capability and Casio's new optimized-for-YouTube...

Casio Exilim EX-S880 Digital Camera


One of the better slim shooters we've tested—with a ton of features and only minor complaints.

Great looking; slim; fast performance; 39 scene modes, including YouTube and eBay modes; YouTube direct-upload software

YouTube software is Windows-only; mediocre low-light performance

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Consumer review by:

"Good camera"


Very good camera considering cost, great for trips when you need a nice compact camera

Big screen, Video is very good, nice stylish slim design, cool shooting modes

finish attracts fingerprints

Product Specifications

Casio Computer offers a digital camera with the cutting-edge EXILIM Engine 2.0 image-processing module. The 8.1 megapixel EXILIM Card EX-S880 adds enhanced movie functionality to Casio's stylish series of EXILIM digital cameras. The EX-S880 is another addition to the popular EXILIM Card series, known for its sophisticated design in a thin card size. This model comes with a high-quality movie function that makes the most of next-generation H.264 compression technology. It also features Casio's YouTube BEST SHOT Mode, which enables users to shoot and save movies at the optimum size, quality and other settings for YouTube, the world's most popular online site for sharing videos. Casio has also included an exclusive software application that makes it fast and simple to upload movies to YouTube. The camera also features a blur reduction function that uses motion analysis technology, an auto-tracking AF system, and face detection technology. The combination of face detection technology and the auto-tracking AF system ensures that, once the focus locks on to a person's face, it will stay sharp and maintain the right exposure, even if the person moves. Casio has made it much easier to capture beautiful portraits.
