Like looking at things far away? Trousers too small for a telescope? Then the Casio Exilim EX-H10 may be for you, my friend. It's a 12-megapixel camera with a 10x optical zoom.

The H10 is another entry in the market segment we've chosen to call suprazooms: the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ6 and Canon PowerShot SX200 IS are some of the other contenders.

In burst mode the camera fires 4 frames per second at full resolution or 10fps at a paltry 1 megapixel. A flash burst fires three 2-megapixel snaps in just over a second. As well as the usual 10- and 2-second options, there's a triple self-timer to capture a batch of images with you in them. Flash options include soft flash and red-eye reduction.

Let's not forget the video options. Footage is high-definition 1,280x720 at 30fps, with monaural sound. Options include prerecord movie, which saves footage from before you hit the button, and video optimised for YouTube upload.

Click through our gallery to find out more about the Casio Exilim EX-H10, including that all-important price. We wonder if it will have a ten in it. Probably not.

Quite why you'd want to have make-up mode available at the touch of a button is anyone's guess. The screen is a 76mm (3-inch) LCD.

The H10 packs a large 10x zoom, with optical image stabilisation and an equivalent wide angle of 24mm.

Like all manufacturers, Casio's interface has its quirks. Every Exilim has separate buttons for playback and shooting, rather than one button to toggle between them. Still, Casio was one of the first -- if not the first -- to offer a handy dedicated video button, and you can map your favourite functions to the clickpad for easy access.

Sadly, you can't use the 10x zoom while recording video.
