The holiday season is officially upon us – and that means it’s time to start looking for that perfect gift. If you are planning on getting someone a quality/well priced ultracompact camera – look no further than the Casio Exilim EX-Z750.
CNET: “The Casio Exilim EX-Z750 marries form and function with a great design and satisfying manual controls.” Voted best ultracompact of 2005.
Digital Photography Review: “It’s a surprisingly rewarding camera that manages to squeeze a lot of features into its tiny body, and – just as importantly – makes using the wealth of controls and features as easy as possible given the lack of surface area for extensive external buttons or switches. It’s fast, easy to use, and reliable, with very few focus or exposure problems (save for the occasional metering error in scenes with lots of contrast or large areas of sky). In the final assessment the EX-Z750 has a bigger feature set than any of its pocket-sized competitors and has a very impressive movie mode with some pretty advanced options thrown in for good measure.”
PC Magazine: “The Casio EX-Z750 is an easy-to-use, well-made ultracompact, with only a few drawbacks in picture quality.”
Steve’s Digicams: “Casio has put together another great digital package. It offers superb image quality, speedy performance and a large LCD packaged in a durable metal body that fits into most pockets or handbags. Just make sure you keep your indoor subjects close to ensure they are illuminated by the flash. The 7-megapixel Fine images have plenty of resolution to create photo-quality 13×19-inch or larger prints. Excellent value in its class.”
Pros: Good resolution, extremely compact, solid construction, excellent interface, big bright screen, good battery life, wide selection of scene modes
Cons: Underpowered flash, Mediocre burst mode, have to use docking cradle to charge battery and use AV output, Visible color noise at ISO 400
