Casio Exilim EX-Z280

 

Inexpensive ; Highly tweakable interface ; Shoots 720p HD video ; Acceptable photo quality

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

Many of the Z280's best selling points on paper don't quite hold water once you get your hands on it.

Casio Exilim EX-Z280 review

 

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.

Looks good on paper but considerably less so in practice; image quality is the main weakness

The Casio EX-Z280 is similar to its Z270 cousin - but what extras do you get in this model? The What Digital Camera Casio Exilim EX-Z280 review...

26mm wideangle lens, affordable, one-touch movie recording

High ISO image quality

All in all though a good, affordable all-rounder that's nice and small in the hand and easy to use.

Casio Exilim EX-Z280

 

When it comes to picture quality the Casio Exilim EX-Z280 does not match up to the best digital cameras in this category. It is not one of the most expensive, but even so I think there is better value elsewhere.

Options displayed on the right hand side of LCD screen - ease of use

Overall picture quality

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....
