Good: Extremely Robust and Long Lasting
Bad: Out dated Now - Of Course
Comment: I had this little camera when it was first launched in 2006 (I think - too long now to remember) and I used it a lot until recently I bought another one of another make. I am still using the battery that came with the camera now occasionally. The camera is working perfectly and the battery is still offering long power for me to play around. For a camera of this price, what else can you say. Of course it is slightly out of date but this is a camera that I satisfy entirely over the last 4-5 years!
Good: Everything: size, screen, quality and colours
Comment: I got this camera in the rarer anthracite colour and I absolutely love it. I looked for a digital camera for a long time and was torn between a bigger camera (Panasonic FZ5 and Canon S2IS) and this. In the end size, style and sex appeal won. And it doesn't disappoint in the performance field either. Pictures are very clear and accurate and produce lovely results at A4. I'm sure it would go higher.
It has a very vivid 2.5-inch screen which shows images with tremendous clarity. Even has a mode that lets you view photos as a slideshow! But, truly, one of the biggest advantages is that there are over 30 presets, ranging from fireworks to macro to soft flowing water. One of the reasons I got the camera was because I liked the flexibility of having manual user settings, but with this many presets I haven't yet needed to do explore, although I may find something, sometime which needs me to think a bit more!
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this camera to anyone who wants a terrific point and shoot, high definition 7.2-megapixel digital camera combined with the creative control afforded by user defined manual settings.
Good: Size, screen, feature set
Bad: Small view finder, manual focusing difficult
Comment: I wanted a camera to fit into my pocket to take shots wherever I was... without carting around my digital SLRs - the missus gives me grief when I take them away with us.
My needs for a compact camera was a high pixel count, manual modes to enable me to get the shot that I wanted, a large screen to view the pictures on and a simple camera for my better half to use (not that I'm calling her simple - I would never do that!).
Anyway... I owned one of Casio's 4 mp cameras in the past and was very happy before going down the digital SLR route... so when I went to buy a new compact... I took a look at their current range. I also considered the Canon compacts - as my SLRs are all Canon... and I'm very happy with them.
Casio had all the features that I wanted and having seen the quality of the shots taken with the camera (with the sharpness, saturation etc settings set to the recommended -1 setting), I was sold.
Very pleased with the camera - it produces nice images out of the camera with default settings and also having tweeked the setup - I am very happy with what it can produce.
Buld quality of the camera is excellent - it has a nice feel to it.
The only real downsides that I can see are: -
1) No carry case supplied - you will need one to keep the screen scratch free.
2) No memory card supplied! Come on manufacturers... I'd sooner buy the camera and memory card together... at least give us the option!!!
3) I'd like to be able to charge the camera without the dock... one more thing to carry around.
4) Manual focus is a little tricky due to having to use the left/right buttons on the dial at the back of the camera.
Overall - I like this camera a lot - the all round package is fantastic and it should provide the owner of the camera to take some nice pictures. I would recommend it!
