Key Features

When it comes to digital cameras, Casio is of course best known for its long-running and extensive range of ultra-compact 3x zoom models, such as the tiny but capable EX-Z85 or the stylish EX-S12. The market for this type of camera has shrunk over the past couple of years, and users are now demanding more features and versatility from their cameras, with options such as HD video, wide angle lenses and longer zoom ranges becoming must-have features. Casio has responded to these changing demands by launching a new model with all the latest features, the 12.1MP, 10z zoom Exilim EX-H10.

As more and more manufacturers move in on the wide-zoom compact market the competition to offer the greatest number of features in the most compact body and for the lowest price is becoming more intense. Models such as the Canon SX200 IS (£235), the Ricoh CX2 (£300), the http://www.trustedreviews.com/digital-cameras/review/2009/04/11/Olympus-mju-9000/p1 Olympus mju 9000} (£180), the Samsung WB500 (£175) and of course the popular Panasonic TZ7 (£240) all offer broadly the same range of features, although as you can see the price does vary widely from brand to brand. Unusually for the normally lower priced Casio, the EX-H10 is one of the more expensive examples, currently selling for £245, however it does offer a lot of features for the money.

Compared to most of Casio’s other cameras the H10 is fairly large, but compared to other wide-zoom compacts it’s actually remarkably small. It measures 102.5 × 62.0 × 24.3 mm and weighs 164g body-only, making it the slimmest and lightest 10x zoom compact on the market, beating even the Olympus mju 9000. The body is mostly aluminium with some plastic trim, and the overall build quality is very good. The body shape includes a small finger grip on the front panel, and the crowded rear panel still has a little room for your thumb. The control layout is good, with large buttons, a nice rotary zoom control and a separate button to activate video recording. The H10 is available in silver, pink or the black finish shown here.
