This is going to come as no real surprise - Casio get another Editor’s Choice for the Casio Exilim Ex-Z700.
It does everything that the Casio Exilim EX-Z600 does with more pixels and a couple of new tricks. Low light shooting isn’t quite as good but it’s still better than 90% of the cameras we test so I’ll let that one slide. Online prices go all the way up to £250 but shop hard and you should get the camera and some memory for less than £200 which makes it a great buy.

The Casio Exilim EX-Z700 has a lot going for it. The digital camera has 7.2 megapixels and still keeps shutter lag to a minimum. It has a lengthy list of interesting scene modes, which some users will find impressive and others will curse. It takes decent pictures in optimal lighting and its built-in flash has plenty of controls to keep it from whitening foreheads and such.
The pocket-sized camera is easy to transport and its battery lasts an incredible 460 shots per charge. The Casio EX-Z700 isn’t all butterflies and fairies though. Its audio recording capabilities are limited to subjects within a few feet of the camera, its mode dial is nonexistent so users have to enter the lengthy menu system for everything , and a glitch in the playback menu makes the camera look a bit unfinished.
The Casio EX-Z700 isn’t exceptionally impressive, but it is an average camera that takes average pictures - and you can get it at an average price.
