Let’s face it, the Casio brand isn’t exactly known for its top of the line cameras and photographic gear. Watches perhaps, and even then, they are not considered to be anything but low end. It’s fine if you just want to tell the time, but you want to take great street photos, portraits, or casual at-home photography. Nothing fancy, but you don’t want a cheap camera.
Well, the Casio company surprised us all with this little compact “enthusiast” camera. It’s comes with a great mirrorless body, which is great for street photography (need to be stealthy, don’t you know?). It’s a nice little camera for almost anyone who doesn’t mind the Casio name. Of course, I suppose Canon and Nikon had their issues like that when they first came out. I think you’re going to like this baby.
The Casio EX-10 compact camera features a 12 megapixel 1/1.7″ back-illuminated CMOS sensor and 3.5-inch touchscreen display that rotates upward by 180 degrees. The Casio EX-10 features the same 28-112mm equivalent F1.8-2.5 lens to the Olympus XZ-2 and Pentax MX-1. This camera has a dial around the lens that can be customized. You will find two shutter release buttons, one that can function differently than the primary shutter release one.
Here are a few other features of the EX-10:
- 3.5inch tilting screen
- FullHD Video with stereo sound
- AdobeDNG raw shooting
- Control ring around lens
- Built in Wi-Fi
