Casio Exilim EX-Z25 review




Our Score:


Casio, as I have often remarked in the past, is one of the original innovators of the digital camera industry. It launched its first model in 1996, beating many long-established camera companies to a place in this lucrative and highly competitive market. The company has continued to innovate with models such as the remarkable EX-F1 high-speed super-zoom camera and the EX-FC100 compact, but its main focus has always been ultra-compact 3x zoom cameras, and it continues to introduce new models once every few months. One of its most successful lines in recent years has been the incredibly tiny 8.1-megapixel EX-Z80, the 9.1-megapixel Z85 and the 12.1-megapixel Z90, so its no surprise that Casio should launch another model using the same basic design.

Announced in November of 2009, the specification of the new Exilim EX-Z25 is essentially the same as the camera that it is replacing in the Exilim range, the five-month-old EX-Z90, to the extent that the two cameras are all but identical. The Z25 has a 12.1-megapixel 1/2.3-inch CCD sensor, an f/3.1 - f/5.9 3x optical zoom lens (equivalent to 35-105mm) and a 2.7-inch 230k LCD monitor.

Like the other Z-series cameras the Z25 is almost ridiculously tiny, measuring 89.7 x 51.7 x 19.4mm and weighing just 116g including battery and memory card. The body is all aluminium and like most Casio cameras it is available in a range of six different colours. The build quality is excellent and the stylish brushed finish looks good while still providing a surprisingly grippy surface.

Have owned 2 Casio cameras before - not impressed.

Ticks all the boxes in terms of specs/numbers - but the picture quality is really unimpressive (being polite).

I would advise buying something else - possibly cheaper and fewer megapixels. This will be miles better.
