The EX-Z60's performance holds up well, too. Once you turn it on, it starts shooting in about 2 seconds, with sequential shots taken about 1.8 seconds apart. That's in good light -- in poor light, shutter lag bumps from 0.6 seconds to 1.1 seconds, and using the flash requires 5.1 seconds between photos. There are several burst modes, but the only one that lets you shoot more than three frames and reframe between shots maxes out at less than one frame per second. The 64mm (2.5-inch) LCD on this viewfinder-less model turned out to be a disappointment, too. It's relatively coarse, and its shiny surface produces a fair bit of glare in bright sunlight, and there's no way to change its brightness to compensate.
Casio's Exilim EX-Z60 makes a better fashion accessory than a camera. If you're looking for style and photographic substance in the same price range, we suggest you check out Canon's Digital IXUS series or Nikon's S series of cameras.
