Casio's Exilim line of digital cameras has been very popular over the past few years, because of their speedy performance and compact size. Their newest Exilim offers the same small size and relatively speedy performance, but it also adds a new claim to fame for Casio. Keep reading to see how it measures up.
The new EX-S880 has a new YouTube Capture feature, which is supposed to make uploading videos to YouTube easier. I will discuss this new feature at greater length later on in this review.
The S880 is the follow-up to the relatively successful S770, and there isn't much difference between the two. Both are about the same size and sport the same lenses, but the S880 offers an upgraded 8 mega-pixel CCD sensor and the Exilim Engine 2.0 image processor. There are few other differences in the two models. When looking at the performance numbers of the two Casios, you can see a slight drop in performance in the S880. There isn't a huge difference in the two, but it is still a bit puzzling why the newer model, with the new Casio image processor, is a tad slower than the S770.
The new S880 is one of the most affordable 8 mega-pixel cameras available today. The MSRP of the S880 is $279, but I have seen this camera at online retailers for around $250 or even less. At this price, this camera is a great value when you consider the features which Casio has put into it. There are some good alternative cameras out there in the S880's price range, but a lot of them don't offer the same features.
One area where the S880 lacks is in the image quality department, so people looking for excellent image quality in their digital camera should look elsewhere. This camera doesn't produce horrible images, but there are better cameras out there when it comes to image quality, such as the Canon SD1000.
