Casio Exilim EX-Z77 (silver)


The EX-Z77 maintains the same slim profile and control layout as the Z75. You can access most functions through the camera's large, circular joypad and the four narrow buttons clustered around it. Besides simple menu navigation, these buttons also...

Fast performance; accessible interface; handy YouTube uploader included.

Poor picture quality; grainy LCD screen.

The Casio Exilim EX-Z77 has some neat features and feels responsive, but its poor photos simply can't be overlooked.

Casio Exilim EX-Z77


Casio truly made a name for itself with the Exilim series of cameras it introduced at the beginning of the century. Exilim cameras have always been super compact, sleek, and sexy, making them ideal for people who like to travel light and easy. Hip to...

Slim and sexy design; large LCD; excellent battery life

Poor quality stills; poor performance in low light situations

I had high expectations for the Exilim EX-Z77, but was let down in too many ways to justify a recommendation.

Casio Exilim EX-Z77 Review


In the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that I haven't used a camera this small since the Kodak Disc Camera I owned back in the early 1980s. I think the Casio EX-Z77 is actually a bit smaller. However, the comparison ends there. We've come...

Very small and lightweight - perfect for carrying in a pocket or small purse, 7.2-megapixel resolution for excellent prints to 8×10, Extensive menu settings and "Best Shot" exposure modes, "Easy Mode" for pure point-and-shoot photography, Built-in...

LCD quick-review makes photos you've just taken look blurry, Image quality suffers in poor lighting conditions, Battery charger has a long, awkward cord

The Casio Exilim EX-Z77 has some of the best features and performance available for a digital camera its size and price. It is so small you can easily take it anywhere. Its 7.2 megapixels of resolution will make excellent prints up to at least 8×10 and...

Casio Exilim EX-Z77 review


Casio tends to make pretty minor changes to their camera models throughout the year and the Casio Exilim EX-Z77 is no exception.

Nice looks and good build quality ; Quick operation ; Good battery life ; Wide LCD is nice for usability (but note comment about low pixel count below)

Noise performance not impressive ; Low resolution of LCD makes it hard to judge image quality on camera ; No focus assist light

The slim Z77 features a maximum capture resolution of 7.2 megapixels. Images can be captured at resolutions of: 3072 x 2304, 3072 ƒ- 2048 (3:2 aspect ratio for 4x6 prints), 3072x1728 (16:9), 2560 ƒ- 1920, 2048 ƒ- 1536, 1600 ƒ- 1200, and 640 x 480. ...

For several years, Casio has been sort of the sleeper hit among digital cameras, with products that are consistently attractive, innovative and ahead of the curve. That is quite an accomplishment for a diverse company whose core business is in...

Crisp, logical design, layout and menus, H.264 movie recording for small size at good quality, Advanced face detection modes, Over 40 scene modes, You can get it in four colors, Superior movie modes, including past movie, Speedy operation and good...

Mediocre, low-res screen, Lacks the sleek, precision feel of other Casios, Poor English translations and very marginal companion software

Performance, on the other hand, is exemplary. This is a speedy camera and you hardly ever wait. It feels faster than older designs, and the three continuous shooting modes are all improved in speed. Picture quality, likewise, seems improved, and it's...

Casio Exilim EX-Z77


Bought this one as a gift for my sister I had a chance to play with it for a week, not bad camera. I think Casio and Fuji are some times over looked, I am a huge Canon/Nikon Fan but I think the point and shoots from these companies at times are better.

Casio Exilim EX-Z77


I purchased the camera at Office Max $107 + tax and was very excited to try it out. I was very disappointed with both the indoor and out door photos — very grainy and the colors were very bland. I like the size and weight of the unit but without good...
