My CASIO Exilim EX-Z1080 Review with video and photo samples

I won't repeat everything that is already avalaible in the official specification. This 10.1 mega pixels Digital Camera is extremely interesting for it's unique features, specially in video mode. It is similar to s880 but a little bit thicker and with more features.
