Casio Exilim EX-Z9


A handsome and durable budget camera that offers impressive image quality.

Very good image quality ; All-metal body ; YouTube and eBay shooting modes ; Excellent face recognition

A bit slow from shot to shot ; Uses electronic, not optical, stabilization

The Casio EX-Z9 is a quality on-the-go camera that can capture crisp pictures and videos. The similarly priced Nikon Coolpix L18 is faster, but we prefer this budget digicam because it provides more shooting options and has a sleeker design.

Casio Exilim EX-Z9


The 8.1-megapixel Casio Exilim EX-Z9 surprised me. In my experience, Casio's point-and-shoot cameras have suffered from poor image quality. My opinion was reinforced most recently by the EX-S880, a slim and sleek camera that took dull and dark...

Slim, ultracompact. Great video capture. Excellent daylight still shots. Easy-to-use "Best Shot" automatic mode.

Overexposed flash shots. No dedicated mode dial. Tiny on/off button. Shutter can be difficult to press all the way down.

The EX-Z9 is an easy-to-use, entry-level shooter that takes terrific daylight shots and continues Casio's tradition of quality video recording in digital cameras.

Great value


Newegg hits another Homerun. Product and shipping amazing again.

I bought this camera for my 17 yr old daughter for Christmas. So far Dad is a hero. It feels heavy, not cheap feeling. The LCD screen is the biggest I could find. It makes really cool sounds that you can turn on or off. It has more features than my...

Casio.... lets me down again


I didnt get the pink one... I had a black one. Probably made all the difference.

When working properly takes good pictures and would be good for a little sister or wife or someone who just wants to take pictures without any fuss

Battery died after a less than a year. Bought a new one and it worked for a while. Soon after stopped doing anything except playback, when you push the button to go to take pictures it just shuts off. The lens is stuck halfway out. Next camera will be...
