The EX-Z550 is very slim, in fact it's smaller that a deck of playing cards, with a similar rectangular shape.

Telephoto image quality not great. 10cm macro on ZS10.

Bottom line - The Casio Exilim EX-Z800 is a nice little pocket camera that has a very appealing price tag of just $149 US.

Macro performance is poor, though, getting you no closer to your subject than 10cm.
