Casio Exilim EX-Z110 review
Dec 29, 2006

Not bad. For me it's low-cost replacement for QV-R40.
Bestshots and manual are usefull.

Problems:

F3.1-5.4 and 1/2.5 CCD

My previous Casio had F2.8-4.9 and 1/1.8 CCD

This means for example in same situation
QV-R40 - ISO80 - 1/50s
Z110 - ISO100 - 1/20s ISO200 - 1/40s etc..

And no lens-zooming during video.. digital zoom only. Maybe to make it quiet.. but R40 zoomed with lenses. And no ISO selectable in video mode.. on R40 ISO320 could be set in night..

Another thing is much smaller optical viewfinder covering only about 70% of scene.. but still better than having none.

1/2.5 CCD at 6MP is a bit noisy and images are processed with noise-reduscton, which is a bit annoying and images are more soft than on QV-R40 were.. (but on QV-R40 there was some visible noise too even at iso80

Z110 Noise is visible on ISO400/800/
ISOs1600/3200 are only for fun or 1024*768 size max after noise reduction and postprocessing
On ISO 50/100 its OK and 200 acceptable. ISO400 needs some postprocessing like sharpening, contrast etc..

Good camera for that money.
