Launch SRP: S$479

Introduction

Introduction

These days, Casio has often been shadowed by the bigger and more heavily advertised camera brands. It's actually a bit of a pity considering that Casio was one of the forerunners in bring cameras into the digital age. Long timers in this trade and enthusiasts might recall the Casio QV-10, the world's first digital camera with a TFT LCD screen. Still, Casio has its own niche and with the Casio EX-Z2000 (part of the Zoom series), it might have a chance to take a stab at the spotlight. This nicely-sculpted and sturdy camera comes with the reinforced EXILIM Engine 5.0 and the new Premium Auto mode that automatically attempts to achieve the best image quality through analyzing focus points, scene, details and subject matter. Other features include a 14.1-megapixel CCD and a 5x zoom lens - all in all, making this ultra compact a rather attractive device to own. How does it fare under our scrutiny? Read on to find out more.
