Casio Exilim EX-Z850 review : With a high resolution of 8 Megapixels, a 3x optical zoom and a large format 2.5 inch LCD display, packaged in a solid aluminium housing, the Casio Exilim Z850 certainly is an interesting digital camera. With the introduction of their latest model, we once again see Casio clearly assert themselves at the front line of the digital camera market. With an increase in Megapixels, the Casio Exilim EX Z850 succeeds its predecessor, the Exilim Z750. This model was well received after its introduction, and has more than proven itself over the last year. However, all good things must come to an end, and it seems that time has come for the Z750; after all, a new star is born: the Casio Exilim EX Z850.|

Casio Exilim EX Z850 digital camera review
Until recently, the Casio Exilim EX Z850 led the Exilim-series cameras. This position was taken over by the Casio Exilim EX Z1000 digital camera, with which Casio now lead the 10 Megapixel class. Those who are not lured in by the magical figure of ten, will be able to direct all their attention to the 8 Megapixel version; the Casio EX Z850 camera. We had the opportunity to test the Casio Z850 in practice. Our results can be read in the following Casio Exilim Z850 review.
