Casio Exilim EX-S880 Reviews

Pocket-Lint reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S880 and writes;
“The Casio EX-S880 is a good little snapper that is well built, compact and takes great pictures…Against the S770 there isn’t much difference here apart from the increase in megapixels but like its predecessor, it’s a good solid camera from Casio.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

LaptopMag reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S880 and writes;
“The EX-S880’s photos aren’t as sharp as some other 8-megapixel cameras we’ve seen, but the color fidelity was spot-on… the EX-S880 is a reliable, affordable choice that can handle both photos and video with aplomb. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

ComputerActive reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S880 and writes;
“We’d advise sticking to ISO400 to avoid image noise, though there is less noise than from previous Exilims… Overall Menu systems and shooting options are easy to navigate, but the Casio S880 is prone to the effects of camera shake, meaning there are better similar-sized alternatives.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆ reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S880 and writes;
“It is difficult to find a truly thin digital camera that offers exceptional picture quality. The Casio Exilim EX-S880 tries hard, but does not quite hit the heights when it comes to the quality of photos it produces… This camera scores well for its small size and ease of use. I did find the camera struggles with focusing once you get any real distance in the shot. It was able to handle closer subjects better. It is an incredibly slim camera.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S880 and writes;
“The autofocus system is, as usual for Casio, exceptionally fast, which contributes to its impressive 1.5-second shot-to-shot time in single shot mode. Noise control was very good though, with good image quality at 400 ISO and usable images even at 800….If you’re looking for a pocket compact the S880 should be near the top of your list.”

PCWorld reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S880 and writes;
“In our lab tests, the EX-S880 produced some of the most accurately exposed flash photos we’ve ever seen. Unfortunately, results weren’t so good for daylight shots. Distortion and sharpness were also below par. But we took an above-average 332 shots on a single charge in our battery tests. To recharge its lithium ion cell, you dock the camera into an included cradle.”

DigitalCameraReview reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S880 and writes;
“The S880 was very easy to use. The speed of operation was always snappy, focus times were good and cycle times (time between shots) was fast enough to capture those fleeting snapshot moments. Battery life was pretty impressive as well.”

Steve’Digicams reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S880 and writes;
“Our movie mode results were good when using UHQ Wide and UHQ modes, however like all of the Casio models we have recently reviewed, the YouTube mode videos were not impressive. However, the file size is drastically lower than the other settings, so it does fulfill its intended purpose of creating movies with small file sizes for sharing on YouTube’s site.”

InfoSync reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S880 and writes;
“A thin card-styled camera, the EX-S880 is both good-looking and functional. The metal case is attractive yet durable, but the standout feature is the dedicated video record button, and what it means for the interface. By having only one shooting mode but two separate buttons for video and still photos, Casio has churned out the most convenient camera for shooting both stills and videos that we’ve tested.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S880 and writes;
“The good: Superslim digital camera; quick performance; family-priority face-detecting autofocus and autoexposure; includes YouTube uploading software. The bad: Extremely soft pictures; doesn’t really improve over its predecessor. The bottom line: Soft pictures and few improvements mean you should give this marginally upgraded Casio Exilim EX-S770 digital camera a pass. ”
