The build quality is excellent. It is also attractive

Casio Exilim Ex-zr200 Digital Camera The EX-ZR200 is an improvement of the excellent EX-ZR100. Both take quality photographs. The EX-ZR200 is faster to start and has USB charging; it also allows HDR-art movies (but unfortunately not HDR movies). The controls are straightforward -- and the settings are plentiful/useful. The Best Shot options cover a wide range of situations (and you can set up your own modes).

In my opinion no other camera manufacturer has better internal image processing software than Casio. Sharp, clear and true to life. Apart from image quality, the camera is compact. It fits well in hand. It has superb battery life.
