The Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z77 is one of the first two digital cameras to offer Casio's new YouTube Capture mode (the other being the EXILIM CARD EX-S880), which in concert with a bundled software application makes it simple to upload multiple videos at once to YouTube. The Casio EX-Z77 has a sensor resolution of seven megapixels coupled to a lens that has a maximum aperture of f/3.1 - f/5.9 across the zoom range, with a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 38 - 114mm.

The Casio EXILIM EX-Z77 has 11.4MB built-in memory, as well as support for SD / MMC / SDHC card storage. Power comes from an NP-20 proprietary Lithium Ion battery. ISO ranges from 50 to 800 with an ISO 1600 high sensitivity mode available, and shutter speeds range from 4 to 1/2000 second.
