Casio EX-Z280 Review

Review posted 11/30/2009

The Casio Exilim EX-Z280 is an entry-level, ultra-compact digicam that comes with a nice selection of features for under US$200. Improving image quality and using less power is the new EXILIM Engine 4.0. This processor is in addition to the standard processor, allowing the camera to handle more than ever while shooting. Featuring a 12-Megapixel imaging sensor, 4x optical zoom lens, sensor shift image stabilization, and BS Auto (Auto Best Shot Selection). As with most Casio Exilim cameras, the Z280 features the One-Touch video recording button, allowing you to start recording video instantly, no matter what shooting mode you are in. Casio has also expanded the Dynamic Photo feature so that you can now create videos on the camera without special computer software.
