Casio’s Exilim range has remained at the forefront of camera design, with a large and well deserved share of the market for stylish high-performance ultra-slim compact cameras. One of the latest models in the Exilim range is this, the 7.2-megapixel EX-Z75.
Although the “Z” series aren’t sold on their slimness (that’s the “S” series) it is a marvellously compact camera. It measures 95.4mm wide by 60.6 tall by only 19.6mm thick, and that’s across the thickest part, including the lens and monitor. Across the thinnest part of the body it’s just 16.2mm, and that’s without using BenQ’s trick of a tapering body shape. Weighing just 122g dry, it’s small and light enough to slip into any pocket or handbag.
..Another outstanding pocket compact from Casio, the Exilim EX-Z75 is an ideal camera for general and social snapshot photography. It is well made, sensibly but attractively designed, very easy to use and has much better performance than its low cost would suggest. Picture quality is very good as well. It may lack a few features such as image stabilisation and an AF assist lamp, but on the whole it is excellent value for money.
