The new Casio Exilim Zoom EX Z77 digital camera comes as a mid-level alternative between the cheaper EX Z75 and the more expensive EX Z1050. Priced at £149.99 in the UK, the EX Z77 is a cool, fashionable and dependable camera. It comes in a variety of colors, such as black, silver, red, pink and blue. The slim, lightweight properties of the camera also recommend it as a favorite pick for those of us interested in quality photos but not ready to carry around a 3 pound camera.
The Casio Exilim Zoom EX Z77 digital camera has a 7-megapixel sensor and comes with a 3x optical zoom lens. The focal range is of 38-114mm, which doesn’t provide much accuracy for extreme detail shots, but is more than enough for general photo situations. The Casio Exilim Zoom EX Z77 digital camera also comes with its LCD 2.6-inch color widescreen and most essential commands are easily accessible. You can quickly adjust white balance or ISO, as well as the flash setting and the resolution as well. Since there is no viewfinder on the camera, you have to rely on the LCD screen, which does its job, even in brightly lit exterior locations.
Internal memory is not too generous, with only 11.4 MB available, but you can expand the overall storing capabilities of the Casio Exilim Zoom EX Z77 digital camera with SD cards or MMC and external media. The lithium-ion rechargeable battery offers rather modest performance of around two hundred shots in regular settings. It might be a good idea to take the charger with you even on weekend trips, or, if you want to be 100% certain nothing will go wrong, purchase an extra battery pack.
The Casio Exilim Zoom EX Z77 digital camera controls are also very easy to operate and the camera is ergonomically built. You get playback and capture mode buttons plus a navigational, 4-directional joystick for scrolling through the commands. The four-way button system used by the Casio Exilim Zoom EX Z77 digital camera might be a little tricky for clumsy users or for those with large fingers and fingernails.
Another cool feature of the Casio Exilim Zoom EX Z77 digital camera is an option specifically designed for shooting YouTube movies, which creates optimized videos, ready to be posted on the video sharing website.
