    The 14.1 megapixel Exilim EX-Z550 from Casio looks like any other run of the mill pocket-sized point and shoot compact at first glance. Its sub £150 price seems to confirm that, high resolution aside, there's nothing extraordinary here. It's a pleasant surprise therefore that, taken as a whole proposition, the Z550 adds up to more than the sum of its parts and actually delivers a fair amount of bang for your buck.

    Casio's Exilim EX-Z550 is an affordable point-n-shoot with some appealing features for the price ($169US). The EX-Z550 captures nice 14-megapixel photos, and as along as you are using a faster SD/SDHC memory care, snaps them rather quickly. The EX-Z550 should make a nice camera for those wanting a simple to use camera that can be tucked in a small pocket or bag. Our only real complaint is the lack of an AF-assist lamp, which would make focusing in marginal lighting much easier.


  • The Casio Exilim EX-Z550 is a well-made, good looking, easy to use ultra-compact offering a good range of features, a quick and intuitive interface and a reasonable level of performance at a very competitive price. It produces reliable results in most lighting conditions.

  • If you are in the market for an entry level camera that offers a big resolution, a wide angle lens, a respectable zoom and macro function and a set of easy to use controls then the ZS5 or ZS10 is the camera for you. Providing you can get it at the right price. The ZS10 with more compact body, improved video quality, and more attractive colours and styling appears to be the better choice, however, if you just want a compact budget camera, then the ZS5 would do the job.

    The Exilim EX-Z800 is a fashion savvy digicam that is small enough to fit into the smallest of pockets and purses. With six color choices, this is sure to be a hit among the younger crowds. It offers good image quality and performance, however it will have some trouble focusing in low-light conditions due to not having a focus assist lamp.

    Do not buy the Casio Z800. Both review models had serious quality-control problems.


  • The Exilim EX-Z800 is a well featured compact that is certainly capable of producing excellent results in the right conditions. The quality at higher sensitivities could be better, but the camera will suit those who tend to take most of their pictures outdoors in good light, or indoors with the flash at close distances.

    With the camera priced at under £150 I feel it represents good value for money as the image quality, especially at lower ISOs exceeds many other cameras at this price point.
