Casio Exilim EX-V8 review
Feb 3, 2008

What's up with casio?
I owned the V7 and returned it because the IQ was not sufficient for me.
While i thought about a new cam the V8 came out and i was hell of exited about the upgrade on the V7!
The concept is not bad at all. The features look awesome on the specs sheet. The video quality is suprisingly good if the zoom would be accurate. (This was an issue of the V7 ,too)
There are a few manual contols that's nice. You can take long exposure pictures in the dark. Not an essential feature cause my DSLR makes much better pics anyway but nice to have.
The ability to take pics in different exposures would be even more useful cause you are able to take HDRs even when you got your small cam with you.
Well the essential drawback on this cam is the IQ. And I think this point is not overrated in all the reviews. The IQ of the V8 i think is even worse than the IQ of the V7!
Don't believe the MP hype there are better cams around!

Problems:

Worse IQ than on the V7.
Video focussing problem still exists.
