A Great, All-Purpose Compact Camera

Barely more than 0.5 inch thick, the Casio EX-S880 is a great, little go-everywhere compact camera. At $249 (street price around $209), it might also make a great holiday gift for the photo enthusiast in your household. An 8MP camera with a 3x optical (4x digital) zoom, this is more of a snapshot camera than some of the serious compacts in the 12MP range, but it’s a good value and a lot of fun to use. Considering that 10 years ago a 1MP compact camera would set you back about $1,000, this is an amazing amount of progress!
