Most photographers require a compact camera to satisfy two requirements: to fit easily in a pocket and to provide enough control over their images so they can get creative, should they wish.

The so-called ‘travel compact’ is generally considered the ideal marriage of these two factors, and subsequently it has become popular with DSLR owners.

Casio’s latest compact appears to be pointed towards this area of the market, but with some trademark Exilim features that should distinguish it from the competition.

The Casio Exilim EX-ZR100 features the ‘Exilim Engine HS’ processor, which allows extremely high continuous shooting speeds to be obtained in both still and video capture, and is responsible for its art effects.
