Review posted 5/17/2010
|Nice wide 4x optical zoom; Captures decent outdoor photos; Good shooting performance with fast SD/SDHC card; Loads of cool Best Shot modes; Slim body is easy to slip into a pocket; Appealing price tag|
|Slow shooting performance when not using a fast memory card; No AF-Assist lamp; Poor low light AF performance; Average HD video option|
|The Casio EX-Z550 should make a nice camera for those who are on a tight budget, or are picking up a camera for their teenager. Read more in our Full Conclusion.|
