Here we are comparing ZS1 and EX-ZS5, two Compact cameras from Panasonic and Casio. Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS1 is a Small Sensor Superzoom class camera and Casio Exilim EX-ZS5 is a Ultracompact class camera.
Panasonic ZS1 was introduced to market in May 2009 and Casio EX-ZS5 was launched in January 2011. There is 20 months difference between ZS1 and EX-ZS5 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger EX-ZS5, especially in sensor tech.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Panasonic ZS1 and Casio EX-ZS5 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on the following sections in order to better understand in detail how Panasonic ZS1 and Casio EX-ZS5 compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
