Casio Exilim EX-ZS5
Released March, 2011
The Pros:Competitively priced compared to similar entry-level cameras available. "Best Scene" modes are helpful for less-experienced photographers. Battery can be charged in-camera.
The Cons:Limited to VGA video recording while its "sister" camera, the EX-ZS10, offers 720p video for $20 extra. Photos turn out very dim in telephoto mode. Entirely lacks an optical viewfinder.
