42nd Street Photo Reviews The Casio EX-Z1080

Casio is probably not what most would consider a name brand camera, but their heart is in the right place.  The Casio EX-Z1080 is a great bargain that can snap off some really sweet high resolution photos. The camera has a 10.1-megapixel compact camera with a 1/1.75-inch sensor, a 3x zoom f/2.8-f/5.1 lens equivalent to 38-114mm and a 2.6-inch widescreen monitor and has a great range of advanced features. The body is all aluminum and comes in a wide variety of colors.  The Casio EX-Z1080 has a shutter lag of 0.006 seconds which is certainly impressive and holds to Casio claim. If you are looking in to a Canon or even Nikon you may want to check out this Casio first.
