Casio Exilim EX-Z550

Casio EX-Z550

This feature-packed camera include a 4x zoom (26-104mm), HD recording (1280 x 720) and digital effects - including one that makes your skin appear smoother. You certainly get lots of shooting options, with a "Best Shot mode" - aka Scene mode - offering more than 40 choices. The menu system is a little messy, but fortunately, the main functions can be accessed using an inverted L menu that runs along the top and right0hand side of the screen. This 14Mp camera offers decent image quality, although the AF system is a bit sluggish at times and some shots were a little soft.
