Quite similar to the existing EX-Z110 and EX-Z120 models, the most instantly noticeable difference on the Casio EXILIM EX-Z10 is a completely reprofiled hand grip that should be much easier to hold firmly. The Casio Z10 offers 8.7MB of built-in memory as well as SD/MMC storage, and draws its power from two AA batteries. Images are captured with a five megapixel imager and 38 – 114mm equivalent zoom lens.
The Casio EX-Z10 includes an optical viewfinder – an increasingly rare feature these days, but one that can save your day when framing accuracy isn’t vital – letting you save battery life, or get the shot when using the LCD isn’t feasible. When accuracy is important though, you can switch to the 2.0″ LCD display (which has a lower-than-average resolution of just 84,960 pixels) to ensure your subject is positioned exactly how you intend.
