Read the full Casio Exilim EX-Z85 review

The Casio Exilim EX-Z85 is close to being the perfect pocket compact. It is incredibly compact, solidly made, very easy to use and has excellent all-round performance. Focusing is quick and accurate, but the lack of an AF lamp limits its usefulness in some situations. Unfortunately it is let down by inferior image quality, especially poor lens performance and image noise problems.

I bought this camera for my Mum as a Xmas present and thought the photo quality was fantastic for such a cheap camera.

I got vastly better results than the examples you have used for the review...very odd!

To my eyes the image quality is terrible - worse than a 6, probably a 4. Due to the poor image quality and absence of an AF assist lamp, the most I'd give it, overall, would be a 6 out of 10.
