Casio EXILIM EX ZR800: Anti-Shake Just Reached a Whole New Level

High-powered Zoom
Excellent Image Stabilization

Casio EXILIM EX ZR800 Digital Camera Casio EXILIM EX ZR800 - Each camera gets better and is able to do more. The ZR800 has a beautiful 18x optical zoom and still looks good at 36x digital. The pictures are very good and does so much for a compact camera. The time-lapse is fun, fun, fun! You can set the seconds between pictures for varied amounts of time. Slow motion is also fun and offers different speeds with varying degrees of clarity.

Also included are Best Shots where things are already set for you for the various shots--night shots, flowing water, portrait, etc. The best thing to do is to look up the manual online before you buy it and see all the various things it does. The only thing this one does not have that the last Casio I review had is audio recording. They didn't include it in this camera. You can do HD video and use only the sound if you have software that will allow you to do this.

When you get it the manual is in Japanese which for me is not any help, but when you find the English adjustment on the camera you're OK. Again, just go online for the manual in English. Apparently Casio does not sell in the US anymore so you have to use the importers on Amazon. If you like a compact camera that does a whole lot of things and still takes very good pictures I would recommend that you consider this one.
