Let’s summarise my findings over the last few weeks. I’m pleasantly surprised at the high quality of both finish and the digital output.
The Casio Exilim EX-Z850 is a more than capable camera which should give years of great service - even when technology in 2010 will make us snicker at the “mere” 8MP of this model. It has my highest recommendation for this class of camera! It’s also very affordable.
In a couple of words: it’s fun, feature-filled and fantastic. On that note: I just bought a waterproof case for the Z850 so we’ll be plumbing new depths as well.
