Simple question if given two choices between a Casio EXZ 1080 and a Casio EXZ 80 with only £5 difference in price which would you pick? Thanks.

One is 8Mega Pixel the other 12 megapix
But with this grade of instrument there is a lot over over specification-
It is called marketing by confusion

Thanks jack and Clapton is God. I am confused. One the bigger one is last years model. The other smaller is this years with 'face recognition'. I just don't know.

Thanks for your help realist and Crossbow7 I'm
just that confused. On the one had is a powerful camera which is last years model with no new technology in the use of this 'face detection' if it's any good and a less powerful one but with the new technology. Both are near identical in other areas but one is better for one thing and the other better on other small points. In quality are there large differences between 8MP and 10MP on the final snap? My original question "Which would you choose?"

Based on the tests carried out by by Trusted Reviews, I would choose the Casio Exilim EX-Z1080. Image quality was superior.

Thanks anchor for your opinion I would agree with you.
