The FX33 is at least £30 more + the card cost about £6 and its alot bigger and heavier.

I think you need to comapre it to other ultra compacts the FX33 isnt a ultra compact, infact i dont know of a smaller camera ?

Fair comment, but i still think the Panasonic is a better camera after having both! :thumbsup:

The Panny is a good camera, the thing i love about the Casios is the movie modes they beat all others as the file size is tiny thats what put me of the Panny , i use the video alot saves me lugging a camcorder around, ive got the Z1080 at the moment

The Casio actually gets quite a good review! I'd buy this if I didnt have the Casio Z75. Seems a good price and particularly like the youtube video mode! Hot!

"Verdict
With the Exilim EX-S880, Casio once again proves that it is a force to be reckoned with in the digital camera market. Although it is competing with some very impressive products from other manufacturers, there are few that can match its combination of ultra-compact size, excellent build quality, striking design, crisp performance, superior image quality and fantastic value for money. If you're looking for a pocket compact the S880 should be near the top of your list."

Also does the casio s880 have any optical zoom? it just says digital in the product description.

It has a 3x optical zoom, i would buy online rather than store as then you can take it back within 7 days, i would go for the Casio over the Fuji everytime its a far more advanced camera and takes cheap SD memory the Fuji takes expensive
