Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z1080


An impressive set of features makes this digital camera well worth the price.

Compact and durable shape ; Variety of Best Shot and manual settings ; Accurate

Buttons are too small ; Proprietary USB cable ; YouTube Uploader software doesn't work on Macs

Casio Exilim EX-Z1080


The first thing you notice on the $280, 10.1-megapixel EX-Z1080 we tested is its metallic-pink shell and a big sticker touting its YouTube-capture mode--suggesting the camera's target buyer is young and female. If you don't fit that demographic, the...

Excellent battery life ; Unique YouTube-optimized video mode

Weak software

Small size, quick operation, and long battery life make this a great pocket camera. Comes in pink, blue, black, and silver.

This is one of the best cameras I have used in a long time. It takes pictures really fast one after another. The battery life on the included battery is amazing. The battery is still going great and shows 3 bars on the camera even after 150 pictures...

I bought this camera for my mom because she lost her old camera. It is a nice camera. We don't really use the 10M resolution, but the pictures do look amazing in Hi-Def. Some designs could be better, but overall, I am glad I bought it.

Loooooooong battery life. Works well in low light. Easy to use. Quick capture

On/off button is too small. A lot of "Best shot" options look interesting but not really helpful

I love this camera. It's small enough for pocket. it can be used in many occasions. It has a nice large LCD window that seems bright enough. It's given me sharp and great pictures.

Small, High resolution.Very good battery life

Casio Exilim EX-Z1080


It is small and cute. So far so good. I am pleased with the quality of both pix and movies. I used Fuji F10 before I got this one. I like that Casio has many useful pre-programmed shooting modes. One problem is that USB connector does not fit...

sharp high resolution pictures, excellent movies, solid feel, user friendly controls, uses SD memory

somewhat subpar workmanship, no optical viewfinder

Overall a nice camera. And it is cheap for 100+. Bought from SEARS online searched all the stores around. It worth it. What else? Would like to have another one if available.

Small and coolVedio function, YouTube ready to upload

Color is not very close to the nature.Maybe too complicated for such a small camera
