There was a minor standoff with Panasonic when Casio announced this model – Panasonic also had a 12Mp compact up its sleeve (reviews: Casio Exilim EX-Z75 and Panasonic DMC-FX12). Casio is first to launch its £279 model (it's now available), which has a 3x optical zoom and a 4x digital one. The 2.8in LCD lets you see exactly what you’re about to capture in its 38-11mmm lens. It takes SD Cards and has a rechargeable battery.
